Joel Fenelon experienced himself the difficulties that come with the modern job search - poring over job boards, networking for potential leads, and sending out resumes and cover letters en mass.
That’s why he created Harvest, a technology firm and software platform in Tampa, focused on workforce development.
Workforce development will be a key issue for companies going forward, with automation and artificial intelligence poised to rewrite the nature of millions of jobs globally.
Harvest is not a job placement service, although job matching is an element of what the company offers, Fenelon said. His primary focus is to help people grow into better careers as the economy changes.
“We are doing that by providing career services that help people understand the value they bring to the job market and that help companies define what they are looking for in terms of their operational procedures, that clarify the tasks and skills they are hiring for specifically,” Fenelon said. “Our software intuitively matches people through a process that’s unbiased and blind and requires no job ads or resumes. There’s no job searching and no candidate searching. That whole process is automated.”
