First notes on what would become Welcome Aboard

In July 31 2015 - I started to put some notes on some side ideas : Here the exact notes from that time :

Those passive candidates have some patterns : They're not actively looking for a job, will change for something they really care about, and they won't apply to any companies. In the other hand some companies tend to be late in adjusting their way of hiring people, still post classic jobs descriptions, receive tons of non qualified applications, spend time screening ...

A new platform is needed, to truly reflect your passions and your skills, link them with companies that are looking for people with real passion, skills. Increase talent pool for companies, and improve the matching between those two words. Way too disconnected as of today.

On the other hand candidates, needs help to define and tailor their wishes, define their skills, and find opportunities they really care about beyond their resumes. Some finance people are passionate by sports, some marketers by music, some engineers by hiking, .. our job would be to link those two for candidates to explore opportunities they really care about. The goal would be to put in front of the candidates jobs descriptions, videos, announcement via linkedin, instagram, blogs, twitter that are related to their life, their envies, ... It has to be also easier for them to show their accomplishments, their passions, their notes, ...one way videos, ...
