UNMET Jobs, in partnership with the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), is hosting a virtual hiring event for both employers and job seekers across the state. The event, which is free for both the companies and job seekers, goes until April 15. The goal of this first-time event is to maximize the hiring experience for all attendees by providing a personalized, yet virtual, networking experience for job seekers and recruiters amid COVID-19.

“Job hunting has never been easy and COVID-19 has made it even more difficult to find employment,” says Emily Ahrens, chief marketing officer of UNMET Jobs. “During UNMET Jobs Arizona 2021, jobseekers will have access to hundreds of employers and thousands of local job postings. Companies will have the opportunity to review resumes from candidates that have recently graduated as well as more seasoned professionals.”

According to Ahrens, the platform is inclusive to all levels of experience and features internships, entry level and mid/senior level positions. UNMET Jobs is powered by Largely©, which is a job matchmaking platform focused on improving the job search experience. Largely humanizes the hiring process by combining the traditional resume with personal videos, highlighting human traits that a resume can never provide: a job seeker’s personality, energy, and uniqueness.

How UNMET Jobs works:
• Job seekers will upload video introductions and answer a questionnaire that explores their personal and professional attributes, together acting as a virtual resume.
• Employers are then able to filter from the pool of applicants by selecting various criteria while also being able to browse through recommended lists of applicants.
• Employers may then use the platform to contact job seekers directly and set up virtual interviews and invite them to webinars or info sessions.

The platform also offers advice, tools and insight on developing an online resume, virtual interview hacks, and answers to frequently asked questions for both employers and job seekers.

“Arizona’s educational institutions are producing the workforce of the future, and we’re proud to partner with UNMET Jobs to highlight our state’s impressive talent pool through this virtual event,” says Sandra Watson, Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO. “By leveraging technology, we’re able to facilitate a greater number of meaningful connections between Arizona job seekers and job creators.”
