Marketing Text The Job Match Utility System database was the key product for the functioning of the Jcint project. Translating the English and Dutch version of the project in the languages of the other partners has allowed all to exploit and further develop the system with operators in the job offer and research sectors. This platform allowed all users to communicate in a free environment and share a common interest thus developing the best way to match offer and demand and give easy access to jobseekers as quickly as possible to the labour market.
The Job matching system of each country added jobseekers’ CVs and Video-CVs and the data from the companies searching for qualified staff. National databases were updated during the experimental phase.
Once data is inserted in the database each employer can directly contact the candidate and fix an appointment for an interview. Through this system the prospective employer can visualise the candidate’s CV and assess technical and administrative competences as well as personal and communicative traits through a link to the Vido-CV.
Employers can also register and add their list of job vacancies and search the site for possible applicants.
The regional databases have been regularly updated and adapted after experimentation. Each partner involved jobseekers in registering and adding their data, CVs and Video-CVs.
Target group direct beneficiaries (students and people searching for a job, VET organizations, public and private job matching services, public bodies...); other stakeholders and wide public
Result Language adaptation on the platform http://jobcreator.klanten-dossier.nl/en/ and on the website http://www.jobcreator.eu/home.html was followed by a reorganisation of the database and of the job match utility system according to market requirements of each partner country.
Area of application
The assessment of the tools and the innovations offered by the Job Matching system to the beneficiaries carried out during the dissemination phase showed very positive results. Same results were achieved with the assessment of the registration of the CVs and Video-CVs, as well as the marching of offer and demand.
Overall feedback was positive since the actors involved showed real interest in the Jcint project and were willing to participate and know more about it. In particular, the interviews and the Video-CVs triggered the interest of the target groups who asked for more information about the Job Creator system.
The reaction from the stakeholders was enthusiastic. They particularly appreciated the new approach and the services offered, easily accessible through the net.
Employers considered it very positive especially as regards the Video-CV and Job Matching activities services such as the offers sent to them through the links.
The development and use of the platform has given the beneficiaries the possibility to anticipate the future developments of the labour market.
HCE introduced innovations in the Jcint project and assisted the partners in the development and marketing of the project and of its main product such as the JobMatchUtility System platform by hosting the centralised language database for all languages of the partners countries as well as the English version of the database which can be used in the mobility programmes at international level as well as for job offer/demand at European level.
The assessment carried out with database users has shown that the system works and offers many new opportunities to search through CVs and job availability.
