Tired of having trouble landing your dream job? Or tired of having to look through resumes that just don’t make the cut? You’re in luck!

Skillgigs benefits employers AND job hunters.
Job hunters are able to put their best foot forward to employers by utilizing the tools at their disposal through Skillgigs’ platform. Skillgigs has created and patented a “3D Resume” which will break down the candidates’ “career DNA” into skill densities that can be represented graphically on Skillgigs’ patented “heat map” – showing the percentage of time they’ve used a particular skill over the course of their career. According to Skillgigs, the “data has proven the 3D resume has cut down candidate review to as little as 15 seconds, as opposed to the hours needed to review a traditional resume.”
If you’re a job seeker, you get to pitch your skills, grab employers’ attention and enjoy the ease of a smooth job application process. You can even get your customized Real Market Value (RMV) analysis and discover what your true earning potential is, based on your skills, location and current market supply. What a nice upper hand you would have in those salary negotiation talks! Oh, and if you’re just keeping your options open, you can still receive bids from employers while remaining anonymous.
With these tools at their disposal, employers can ensure they are making the perfect hire every time. Say goodbye to the days of sifting through unqualified candidates – employers will be able to manage the entire hiring process from a single platform.
Skillgigs believes they are challenging the status quo for talent, just as much as they are challenging it for employers. I was able to do a demo with the Skillgigs team and I must say it was pretty sweet. That 3D resume is something I’ve never seen before.
