SmartRefer REF: Decentralized Recruitment Referral Marketplace?
Many of the current recruitment methods that are used by companies are quite inefficient and redundant. To be more specific, some of the problems that exist within today's hiring market include:
- Issues related to jobs that are simply listed in order to attract responses and add people to company databases.
- Lack of “universal resume formats”.
- Applicants simply applying for jobs they are not qualified for, thereby flooding company servers.
In addition to this, many of the job procuration mechanisms that are in place today make it difficult for passive candidates to apply for positions they might actually be suited for.
