According to CareerArc, about 28 percent of job seekers—including 53 percent of 18-to 29-year-olds—have used a smartphone as part of a job search. Millennials – you’re in luck! Introducing JobFlare, an iOS app designed to change the way job hunting and talent discovery take place for millennial job seekers and companies. By allowing users to play various brain games that are scientifically crafted to test key talents and cognitive abilities, JobFlare revolutionizes the way people get connected with jobs. JobFlare games focus on abilities that have been shown to predict long-term job performance, providing employers with insight into abilities that can’t be discerned from a resume.
Through a set of six 90-second games, JobFlare assesses key cognitive abilities and allows users to compare their scores to others seeking jobs in the same field. Users sign up, enter their basic job interests and location, and play games like “Robot Inspector” and “Mumble Jumble.” Based on performance results and their user profile, job seekers are sent relevant job postings via email. Top scorers may be contacted individually with exclusive job opportunities.
The app is ideal for young adults looking for their first job, people looking to switch careers, or any talented individuals looking to get recognized for their abilities. For employers, JobFlare offers a talent-surfacing engine that helps forward-thinking companies discover candidates who may not have traditional backgrounds but have great potential to succeed. By focusing on traits that are scientifically proven to predict long-term success, JobFlare shines a spotlight on individuals that have the ability to grow into star performers.
