Meet Your Gig began as a virtual resume database (BizBio) designed to help job seekers bring their resume to life with a video elevator pitch. The concept won 2nd prize in the 2011 Ohio State business plan competition and took home $3k in prize money. Based on market feedback, the concept pivoted towards an employer-branding platform (Employer Book) designed to help lesser-known middle market firms engage and attract top talent. Again, the concept won 2nd prize in the 2012 Ohio State business plan competition and took home $3K in prize money. Despite creating a prototype, securing 3 Inc. 5000 corporate beta partners and generating initial revenue, the company decided to pivot one last time. With a fearless founder, a committed web developer and a growing team of experienced career services professionals (who had originally been recruited to help with guest blogging), it only made sense to explore the potential for a “crowd-sourced resume feedback portal”. 3rd me's the charm!
Meet Your Gig helps ambitious job seekers increase their chances at landing that dream gig. Users upload their resume and receive an average score plus commentary from certified resume writers, career coaches and recruitment professionals. Unbiased feedback from multiple expert practitioners helps users identify consistencies for how to improve their resume. Users can also ask specific job search questions and connect with high quality career services professionals for personalized assistance ? sure beats reading another “Top 10 Ways To Create A Killer Resume” article written by someone who may or may not be entirely full of it. Meet Your Gig is also a fun, addicting and reliable lead generation tool for certified professional resume writers and career coaches who prefer to avoid the tedious time and financial investment associated with marketing a business. Now they can focus on what they do best ? helping others ? while creating highly effective personal ads for their respective services.
No job seeker enjoys tediously browsing job boards; page after page of vaguely matching, marginally appealing, and prohibitively repetitive job descriptions is hardly the most effective way to find your “dream gig”. Filling out the same application over and over again, sending your resume into the black hole of recruitment purgatory never to hear back from the company you’ve just invested valuable time in, is enough to drive anyone crazy! Conversely, recruiters flush the bulk of their budget down the drain by posting the same generic text-based job descriptions on job boards and social media. No wonder 95% of applicants are unqualified. Just about everyone agrees… the industry is ripe for disruption!
At Meet Your Gig, we’re on a mission to help job seekers find and land the job they really want, while allowing employers the ability to target, engage and attract the right person for the right job, all-the-while leveraging the expertise of career services professionals to ensure applicants optimize their approach. Stay tuned!
