CareerChain Aims To Revolutionize the $200bn Job Market With Bizzy

Share:

CareerChain launches Bizzy as the first open industry standard for
sharing career histories that will put applicants a couple of clicks
away from their perfect job.

Job seekers today are expected to enter so much repetitive information
in job application forms that they give up on good opportunities quickly
when it takes too much effort to apply - especially when they search on
mobile. Job applicants generally must complete 10 to 20 online
application forms before getting hired - having to re-enter work
history, education, contact details and skills summaries over and over
again. Job seekers soon get demotivated and start skipping over some
great jobs that require too much effort to apply.

Most applicants might think they can just upload a resume or CV, which
some sites support - but increasingly, job hunting is happening on
mobile devices where resumes are not handy. Some job sites have saved
profiles, but they usually don't work on competitors' sites and the
result is lots of form-filling that makes job seekers unhappy and leads
to low conversion of job views to completed applications. Meanwhile,
employers are spending $200 billion a year trying to hire great people.

There was no global standard for applying for jobs to make all of the
above easier, so CareerChain built one. It's called "Bizzy."

Bizzy profiles are the easiest way to apply for jobs - enter once,
apply everywhere!
Built on the blockchain, Bizzy profiles can be
trusted and shared with anyone from any device while also protecting
privacy and data. Job applicants won't need to think about blockchain,
digital wallets, Ether or Bitcoin - they'll just carry on using their
favorite job sites, create a profile automatically and apply for jobs
easily with the Bizzy button.

Bizzy is the brainchild of co-founders Ray
Gibson
(20 years in recruiting and HR) and Andrew
Evans
(a co-founder at Careerbuilder.com). After 4 years leading
their recruitment software company, StartMonday,
to becoming a public listed company in the US, Canada and Germany, they
spotted an opportunity to apply blockchain technology to solve a real
problem and make a massive impact on the job market.

Andrew Evans commented on the new innovation saying: "We supported the
successful transition of job ads from newspapers to the web with
Careerbuilder in the mid-1990's, and twenty years later StartMonday
brought job applications to the mobile generation with 15-second video
job applications. Today, blockchain can not only make job applications
much easier but also facilitate a limitless ecosystem of third-party
applications that participate in our token economy and use Bizzy
profiles in innovative ways - for instance, services to provide
verification of employment claims and certifications."

The CareerChain team is currently traveling the world educating
businesses and HR professionals about the impending shift in the job
market. CareerChain is also raising money in the form of a private token
sale that will be used to further develop and roll out the Bizzy
platform.

"The feedback we have received from job sites, agencies and HR
professionals has been tremendous," notes Ray Gibson. "While it is known
that job seekers search across many different sites to find a new job,
major industry players have never found a way to collaborate and share
data easily. Establishing the CareerChain Foundation like a consortium
for the job market makes Bizzy a non-competitive solution that does not
threaten established brands and enhances their business models and
revenue streams."

Now, with CareerChain headed by a newly appointed CEO, Douwe
Bart Mulder
, (a crypto and blockchain enthusiast who built Europe's
first Bitcoin ATM), the Foundation is signing launching partners and
winning support from savvy crypto funds that want to buy tokens, host
nodes and validate blocks on the new blockchain.

About Bizzy:

Bizzy is the "Intel inside" for the job market. The Bizzy button
empowers and enables partner job sites, agencies and applicant tracking
systems to gather more applicants easily. Also - when applicants they
helped sign up apply on other sites using the same data, partners earn
rewards. This reward system is supported by an underlying token economy
that kicks off with a token sale hosted by CareerChain - a
Netherlands-based foundation with a mission to drive adoption of Bizzy
profiles as an industry standard together with major players in the HR
technology market.
