This week we have Christ Dunst, Co-founder of Skillslog.com pitching in our elevator. Skillslog call themselves “A professional development tool that focuses on what you know rather than who you know”.
Basically they are trying to cut down the recruitment time it takes for employers to find the right person for the job, so instead of trawling through loads of CVs for specific skills, Skillslog.com can match the talent to the recruiter based on very specific, self-rated details entered by the user.
For example a user can enter that they are a Linux developer who also speaks French. Skillslog will match the person to a specific job – great for the technology industry where employers are looking, for example, for a developer with very specific coding experience in various languages.
Howeverm, there may be an issue here for creative industries where applicants often need to show examples of their work.
Anyway, check out the video and you can see an example of Chris’s Skillslog profile here www.skillslog.com/crdunst
