CareerLaunch partners with Magnet

Guest post by Jeffrey Doucet (@jeffrey_doucet), originally posted on LinkedIn. You’ll be able to see a live demo of Magnet at DemoCamp21 on June 24th!

 

magnet

Just under a year ago, Tristan and I set out to help students transition from post-secondary education to employment with our company QuickHire. The premise behind QuickHire was that there were not enough recruiting resources dedicated to entry-level employment, and that by building a resource designed for entry-level recruiting, we would be able to improve and expedite the recruiting process for new students & recent grads.

After spending months building & operating a recruiting resource, we reflected on what we had learned from our users. We realized that instead of addressing the students’ problem, we were just building another resource for employers.

So, we took everything we had learned about our product and began building a completely different application that we now license to universities and colleges, called CareerLaunch.

CareerLaunch incorporates all of the insight we gained about the job search, built into one easy-to-use application that allows any student to effectively manage their job search. We know that if a student follows the proper steps — preparation, organization, employer engagement — they will find a job in no time. We have built software that will equip any student to find their dream job.

Our new software places an emphasis on empowering students to manage and execute a productive job search by:

  • Enabling students to track each job they apply to regardless of what platform or job board they use
  • Allowing students to manage all of their job applications and follow-up with customized notifications
  • Provide learning materials to help students become better job candidates through partnership with employers and institutions

A Province-wide Partnership

While growing our business here in Ontario, we were fortunate enough to develop a partnership with Magnet, a new network co-founded by Ryerson University and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. Magnet, which launched in September 2014, uses powerful job-matching technology to connect job seekers and employers based on skills, preferences, and needs.

Once a candidate builds a profile, the system provides them with job opportunities that match their skills and experience. Qualified job candidates are automatically informed any time an employer adds a new posting, and a person’s identity is shielded until they decide to communicate with the potential employer. Magnet’s software bears strong similarities to our original recruiting platform, so naturally it was a perfect fit.

By partnering with Magnet, our software will be used by a growing network of over 60,000 students and recent graduates and 25 post-secondary institutions here in Ontario. We are excited to get our product in the hands of students and continue to help them transition from education to gainful employment.

In our next blog post, we will break down one of our new major features — our application tracking system — that is compatible with over 20 job boards here in Canada. The software allows students to manage their job search, stay on top of all of their applications, and walk into each interview prepared and confident.

Right here you can check out what we are working on with Magnet. Stay tuned for more product updates!
