Indeed, the world’s largest job site will be joining us at Web Summit this year. They recently launched Indeed Prime, an online career platform that provides employers with top talent based on coding skills, education and work experience. The product is specifically designed to address the growing need for technical talent in a variety of industries.
“It is increasingly competitive for companies to find the technical talent they need as companies ramp up their demand for these professionals,” said Terence Chiu, VP of Product at Indeed. “Employers that use Prime will find talent that they wouldn’t normally see through traditional university recruiting, staffing agencies and job postings.”
Indeed Prime hosts online coding competitions to help discover hidden talent. The top performers are highlighted to employers, showcasing candidates who have proven technical capability. “Our data from the US shows that some of our best performers at the coding competitions are not necessarily from top engineering schools,” said Chiu.
“At times, traditional job application can be inefficient and feel like applying into a black hole for candidates. Prime helps in-demand jobseekers to turn the process around and give them full control in picking the companies they’d like to engage with. It’s a fast track for in demand knowledge workers to their dream career.”
Indeed Prime is currently available in London, Austin, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle and New York City. They will be exhibiting at Web Summit and so head over to their stand and have a chat with them.
