Hiring portal puts career data back into individuals’ control at the point it’s needed most.
Digital Profile, an online career and hiring market-place, is increasingly helping hiring managers and job seekers adjust to a new era of data control and privacy worldwide, as the debate around digital protection continues to rage.
It is innovating the job-hunting market, not only in the way it matches candidates with jobs, but also in the way it manages data transparency and control.
Created in 2015, the take up of its services has risen dramatically since as jobseekers and growing businesses look to protect themselves both as individuals and businesses against ever increasing levels of digital danger posed by the jobs market today.
Founder and CEO Dan Lewis explained: “What we are trying to do with Digital Profile is make careers more fun, but also give individuals full management and clarity of their career data and who is looking at it.
“In recent months we’ve seen stories in the press about people suing online job boards & recruitment agencies for sharing information without giving explicit consent.
“At Digital Profile we have control and transparency at our core, which we are delighted to see coming into play for the increasing numbers of people and businesses accessing our services – just as the future we created Digital Profile with in mind, appears to have arrived.”
As well as allowing them to create their profile on the portal, amend and share it, Digital Profile also allows job candidates to revoke access to their profile too after a successful application process has ended so that their personal, and sometimes out of date, information isn’t kept without their knowledge or consent.
