Ejoobi, local tech startup based out of Gauteng Province, South Africa, is in the midst of creating a digital bot designed to streamline the recruiting process for talent and employers alike.
Ejoobi is a relatively new technology platform that allows job-seekers in rural areas, without Internet access, to send their CVs to recruiters via SMS or USSD.
The bot will allow prospective companies to screen job-seekers’ CVs for jobs, while providing a simplified template on which job-seekers can compile their CVs. The bot will be available in October.
Ejoobi was co-founded by husband and wife Moses and Simangele Mphahlele. The company officially started placing people for jobs in March and is based in Midrand. It has since helped 30 people to secure jobs.
The company says the bot will allow prospective employers, who pay for the service, to upload questions for job-seekers, so that they can be screened according to their skills and experience. The bot will then rank candidates and supply the list to the client.
For job-seekers, the bot will compile questions and allow candidates to provide a professional summary of their skills, biographical information and experience, which will all form the basis of a CV.
These resultant CVs will be e-mailed to the prospective employer and also stored on the Ejoobi platform. Job-seekers will be able to edit the CV.
Simangele says one of the reasons Ejoobi developed the bot was because they discovered some job-seekers couldn’t compile a CV.
