BOOSTME360 GOES LIVE, JOB-SEEKERS AND FOREIGNERS YOUR JOBS AND HEALTHCARE?
The platform offers job-seekers career guidance and access to training content through free e-learning modules, aimed at helping them improve their soft skills and improving their chance of finding a job.
Online portal for entry-level job-seekers, BoostMe360, has gone live, listing 6 000 job-seekers 10 months after it was introduced.
Founded in May 2018 by academic publishing organisation Pearson South Africa, BoostMe360 is an online job and skills development platform that connects SME employers with entry-level employees, who are located nearby.
The portal, which targets unemployed youth and job-seekers throughout SA, is now open to the public after running a pilot test for the last few months.
It uses artificial intelligence (AI) tools to help bridge the gap between employers and job-seekers, cutting out the time-consuming admin synonymous with the search for the right person for the job.
