Companies will be able to significantly reduce time spent on the selection process before inviting job-seekers to interview in the near future.
A group of Slovaks has introduced a new innovation to HR management: the first digital CV in the form of an app and online platform, the SITA newswire reported.
“In our experience, companies invest a lot of time and human resources in the search for highly-skilled people,” one of the creators, Jakub Kuvik, told SITA.Related articleRead more
The Slovak startup CapaCV, therefore, promises its app will make it possible to pre-select candidates up to 80 percent more effectively than is current.
7 sections, 7 videos
CapaCV allows candidates to present their soft skills, such as creativity, empathy, and team management, through a series of videos.
“These qualities are often much more important than a job applicant's experience,” explained Marek Hradílek, another of the developers, as quoted by SITA.
A candidate first downloads the app, which has seven sections, such as introduction, education, experience, and skills. Any job-seeker can then upload a video that should be no longer than one minute to each section. The job applicant will subsequently share their profile through a hyperlink.
The Slovak startup is also planning to expand to markets in the European Union and beyond.
