It’s finally here. After months of hard work developing, testing, and fine-tuning the app, we’re pleased to present you with Instahire. It could potentially revolutionise how jobseekers find work and employers find staff in the hospitality industry. We want to turn the job search and recruitment process upside down. We’ll let you be the judge.
At Instahire we’re always talking about how we can shake up the ways that people find work and the way that employers and employees connect. We’re not shy about the fact that we feel what we have is a revolutionary idea that flips the recruitment process upside down. It all sounds very dramatic, but one thing Instahire doesn’t want to shake up is the lives of its users. We want our users’ lives to remain as simple and breezy as possible.
How many times have you applied for a job, knowing that you had all the skills, all the experience, all the know-how to do the job with flying colours, only to have all that confidence fade away when it comes to the interview? The interview is your final step to employment, and potential employers take it very seriously.
But should they?
For a jobseeker on Instahire, the profile is everything. It’s your first point of contact for every potential employer, and it’s responsible for putting your best foot forward to find the perfect jobs for you. The jobseeker profile gives you the ability to finely control how potential employers see you and greatly increase the chance that they will see you as the perfect candidate for their last-minute staffing needs.
Verification is as simple as uploading identifying documents, and you will get a shiny badge for your profile, meaning that we know who you are and we trust you.
Everything is changing around us – anyone can see that. In particular, the ways in which we communicate have revolutionised in a very tiny span of time. Watch any twenty-year-old sitcom and you’ll see characters grapple with miscommunications and missed connections. If the story were set nowadays it would end with a simple text message, a Facebook message, or a tweet. No drama, just a friendly ringtone or vibration.
This isn’t a new observation, but what is interesting is taking a look at the areas of our lives that are still yet to change and adapt to our new expectations around connecting with each other.
