Now live in India and Kenya, ShortList aims to end the ineffective and time consuming traditional placement methods which make the recruitment process frustrating for employers and de-moralizing for job seekers. ShortList has no relationship with Nigeria’s Shortlist.
According to ShortList, it manages the recruitment process on behalf of its clients to make the process less time consuming and more effective and less tedious.
”We create 3D profiles of all job seekers including background, experience, personality traits and demonstrated ability to communicate and problem solve. We then provide the employer with a “ShortList” of pre-vetted candidates that employers can then interview. We are currently in a pre-launch phase and we are trialing our process with a select few customers and job seekers.”
ShortList will be competing with SEEK-backed BrighterMonday, Fuzu, DumaWorks, KamaKazi, CareerPoint and Rocket Internet’s Everjobs which is set to go live soon. Though they seem to many other players in Kenya’s recruitment scene, recruitment is heavily moving offline to have more people talking to people, identifying talent at various companies and not just being mere job sites. Traditional headhunting is still core for any recruitment platform however great the firm’s algorithms.
