THE 7+1

We do not believe in traditional resumes

Big data analysis is changing the way we see and understand data. This is why we aim to create a new tool that will analyze historical career data to build scored competence profiles for each candidate. We will analyze job experience, education and other inputs to establish a profile for each candidate and to match them with the job requirements.
