Cold calling is horrible. Let’s face it, no one likes receiving anonymous phone calls, especially when what's asked of them isn’t what they’d like to hear. Likewise having to be the person making the cold calls is a horrible, unsatisfying, soul crushing experience knowing that most of the people who answer aren’t going to welcome your call, and will most likely react negatively. Finnish startup Joberate want to change things around in the recruitment field so that never has to happen again.
The field of recruitment has been luring in a lot of start-ups and entrepreneurs. It is going through fundamental changes, opening a lot of possibilities for innovation. Joberate is a new start-up from Finland that has built a service to explore these new trends. The company offers companies distribution of a job opening through various channels: social media, blogs, forums, native job boards and niche sites. Potential clients only need to post a link of their job ad on Joberate's website. Withing a few working days they would receive a proposal outlining the channels and prices Joberate identified as the best ways of distributing the ad. Clients can alter or decline the offer at no cost.
