By social, we mean that we offer a platform feed of personalized posters. No lengthy job ads, heavy recruitment processes or formal interview-like conversations. We want our users to be able to chat and connect in a modern way without formal barriers. Person to person.
When we designed Pockethunt, we included elements from social apps and real-life networking. We realised that many of the best opportunities people come across in their careers are not from applying to job ads and other traditional methods, but through their networks of personal and professional contacts – the hidden job market . Our new app operates on the same dynamic, helping talented individuals to find jobs with the help of social connection.
Posters, which resemble social media posts, are created by employers to initiate private chats with talents. They are like conversational icebreakers. Pockethunt has been designed and developed in Finland, so we know a thing or two about the need for icebreakers.
Just go to your settings by tapping ‘My Pocket’ in the upper menu, and select ‘Settings’, ‘Account’ and ‘Deactivate profile’. You can change it back any time you like.
This is at the core of service. It wouldn’t be in the best interests of the community, as Pockethunt is a quick, casual and more social way of finding new career connections and talent! Our matching takes care of what job ads were meant to do before.
We are growing a completely new community and way of recruiting, so having a low threshold to signing up helps us get new users to try out our service . But yes, in order to keep the lights on in our office, we will be creating paid premium memberships with additional cool features in the future.
