GeekTalent, Sunderland’s own recruitment software solutions pros, has launched the GoCareer app, a career management tool for those looking to reskill and secure a new job role in these ‘interesting times’
And it’s free for the first 3 months, which is loads of time to get established on a new career path, if you’re serious about it.
Allowing users to match their skills to job roles and build a unique CV, the GoCareer app’s features include career pathways, local job and course listings, and sending your CV to potential employers and colleges.
There is a student-only version of the app, that submits digital applications for college courses, with a dedicated skills & careers feature.
Dominic from GeekTalent said: “We brought the launch forward because we feel it’s a really useful tool for those who may have lost their job or be looking for a new role. We really hope that the new app will help both job seekers and students to find work in these uncertain times.
“One of the main goals of the app is to help job seekers to identify their transferable skills and explore the opportunities that match those skills.”
Jordan Dargue added: “During this challenging and uncertain time, GoCareer is here to support students who are looking at potential careers and options, as well as job seekers who are looking to re-skill and seek alternative employment.
“By completing the GoCareer app profile, you’ll be able to create a rich CV, giving you the best opportunity of securing a job or placement interview, and bagging your dream job role or taking the first step on your chosen career path!”
GoCareer has joined with NCFE as a strategic partner to support the roll out of this app.
Sian Wilson at NCFE said “Enabling people to access careers advice, support and employment opportunities is needed more than ever in these challenging times. Geek Talent, in partnership with NCFE, offering this innovative resource for free across the next 3 months means that Colleges, Schools, Training Providers and Local Enterprise Partnerships can trial the resource for their students and job seekers at a critical time for the UK skills and employment sector.”
