Banning CVs to enable experience-based employment
Some people make great employees but are unable to produce an impressive CV. This can lessen their potential to society, their quality of life and their self-esteem.
Alarmed by the high rate of unemployment in France, GoJob was founded in 2015 as an online employment platform to connect motivated employees with companies looking for temporary staff. GoJob focuses on experience-based recruitment.
Companies can assess potential employees based on criteria such as punctuality, capacity to work in a team, and competency in completing desired tasks. This gives people a fair chance at finding work regardless of their CVs.
In 2016, KOIS invested in GoJob, convinced that its innovative model provides a promising answer to the employment crisis in developed countries by leveraging the ever-growing trend in employment flexibility and multiple job holding.
