Search Remotely Launches Remote Jobs Platform
Search Remotely has launched a new remote jobs platform, helping individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to find employment that allows them to work from anywhere. The Sydney-based platform setup by co-founders Christian Carella and Sammy Mehr connects remote job seekers with employers hiring remotely, through an extensive worldwide network. People can gain new employment, without leaving their homes or breaking social distancing regulations.
Search Remotely was due to launch later this year. However, the launch was brought forward to respond to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic in order to support the individuals and families impacted from changes that have affected the global jobs market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a surge of job losses and committed a large proportion of the global workforce to work remotely. Health regulations make it very challenging for the recently unemployed to gain new employment through traditional channels.
Search Remotely enables people to find jobs beyond their traditional circles and geographic location. The platform specialises in jobs that can be done from anywhere. Most of these jobs do not require a fixed base so employees can work from where they are in lockdown.
Founder Christian Carella commented: “The pandemic is accelerating a shift towards remote working and we can provide positive support to all those impacted by the rapid, recent changes. Thanks to remote work, people are not limited by jobs in their local area. They can search and apply to jobs with businesses headquartered on any continent.”
Search Remotely is available to use for job seekers, who can filter remote jobs based on category and region. Some jobs are specifically open to individuals based in a particular country or region, whereas others are work from anywhere. The platform lists full-time, part-time and temporary jobs. Employers can create a basic job posting on the platform for USD 39.
Knack for Engineers
Knack, the job-finding platform that connects job-seekers with qualified employment opportunities, today announces its new mobile app, Knack for Engineers. The new app is free for job-seekers looking for engineering work and, in the age of COVID-19, it enables job-seekers to find qualified, remote, work-from-home options, from their cell phones. The app also includes geographic filters based on zip codes so job-seekers can find opportunities close-to-home.
“With so many people laid off and out of work right now because of COVID-19, we hope Knack will help affected engineers across the country find work that helps them keep their families safe and their lives meaningful,” says Leroy Ware, CEO of Knack. “I know a lot of engineers who are incredibly talented, but have difficulty finding work when they need to. Most engineers just upload their resume to a couple of the big job boards and hope the right recruiter finds them. The traditional job search process leaves a lot of talented people out of work for large periods of time, or in roles that they don’t truly love. Knack for Engineers puts the power of web crawling and big data in the hands of engineers so they can take control of their future. The app is like a recruiting assistant that actively searches for jobs on behalf of an engineer and presents opportunities perfectly matched to his or her skills and preferences.”
How it Works
Knack for Engineers was specifically created to help designers, software developers, cloud architects, devops and infrastructure engineers, roboticists, data scientists and many other technical professionals find jobs. Once the app is installed, Knack users upload their resume and fill in a few additional professional details. Knack for Engineers then creates a personalized job feed that is updated every few hours. The jobs include thousands of full-time and part-time opportunities that are highly tailored to each engineer, both remote and onsite. Users can open the app to review job requests, and even apply to jobs and confirm interviews.
“Since launching the app, we’ve received a ton of positive feedback,” says Mitch Corsini, Chief Operating Officer of Knack. “They’ve offered helpful suggestions and advice that has enabled us to build a platform catered to their needs. The reaction has been amazing and we’re very excited to launch a product that can help so many people at such a critical time.”
