HR ANALYTICS, TALENT MANAGEMENT
SkillGigs.com | March 14, 2023
On March 13, 2023, SkillGigs, Inc., an ecommerce talent marketplace connecting skilled healthcare and technology professionals with AI-matched job opportunities, introduced a new platform experience for its users. The redesigned platform will provide job seekers and businesses with a more intuitive and user-friendly direct sourcing application.
Employers and candidates can now efficiently create listings and screen through matches, as well as effectively negotiate compensation throughout the interview process with the platform's bidding functionality. In addition, the platform's interview scheduling, critical credentialing management, and onboarding functions have been enhanced.
SkillGigs is a ‘job matchmaker’ committed to empowering candidates and bringing top employers and talent together. Job seekers with SkillGigs profiles use the company's proprietary AI-powered 3D Resume tool to present themselves to prospective employers and match their skills suitably.
The platform exemplifies the power of direct sourcing and the benefits of avoiding traditional third-party recruiters for employers. Employers who leverage SkillGigs have access to a thoroughly vetted, continuously updated talent pool and receive AI-matched candidate profiles. Employers can message and offer compensation bids directly to candidates after matching, resulting in significantly higher response rates—over 60% on average, compared to 2-5% on other platforms. When the candidate indicates ‘interested,’ the interview process can commence. All credential management, interview scheduling, and billing can be managed via the platform, resulting in a more efficient and transparent hiring and onboarding procedure.
New features after the upgrade include a unified user journey within the platform, advanced search options for positions and skills, an enhanced user interface with more sign-in options, ratings and reviews, better messaging and an applicant tracking system (ATS) for employers.
SkillGigs, Inc. is an AI-powered ecommerce talent marketplace connecting healthcare and technology job seekers with direct-to-employer opportunities. Founded in 2017, the company aims to streamline the hiring process by providing a direct connection between employers and job seekers.

Matrixlink was developed through years of creating "point-to-point solutions" with leading HCM and benefits administration systems.

Matrixlink's design includes connection points for the management of return-to-work processing, benefit calculations, time tracking, employee absence data, and payroll updates, resulting in secure, end-to-end automation across the claim process.
Vice President of Sales at Reliance Matrix, JoAnne Doyle, shared, "Our clients talk to us all the time about the need to make it easier to manage their benefits program on their system."

TALENT ACQUISITION, RECRUITMENT & RETENTION
Climb Credit | March 10, 2023
FinTech firm, Climb Credit, introduced yesterday the ClimbTalent platform to increase access to career training. The platform links job-ready talent with diverse educational and career backgrounds. Employers, staffing agencies, and recruiters seeking new hires can connect with upskiller and career-switcher community members.
With the ClimbTalent platform, Climb Credit is utilizing its extensive experience and data acquired from over 8 years in the career training industry to facilitate the swift and assured hiring of candidates with non-traditional technical backgrounds by employers. Climb is teaming up with firms seeking to fill vacancies in fields such as software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, and other technical roles and linking them to their pre-screened pool of over 100,000 proficient members from more than 200 school alumni communities.
Employers increasingly recognize the value of non-degree career-focused credentials and look at skills rather than degrees when hiring. Focus on skillsets provide access to a diverse pool of skilled candidates, with 60% of the US workforce lacking a college degree. However, career-switcher alumni from such programs still face obstacles in finding jobs, including evaluation of education providers and skills mapping. These challenges often result in employers relying on traditional degree requirements, which filter out qualified skill-trained candidates.
The platform aims to assist businesses in overcoming obstacles to recruitment and concentrate on the necessary job-related abilities. It provides job-ready resources to proficient candidates, such as resume guidance, mentoring, and technical interview support. These tools help graduates communicate their skill sets more effectively and demonstrate how they can translate into different job roles.
Casey Powers, CEO of Climb Credit, said, "Over the years, we've been able to witness the positive impact that skill-based education can have on people." She further added, "After years of pursuing our mission to increase access to career-advancing education, we're ready for the next step, to help their graduates enter careers and fill workforce gaps with strong, capable employees."
