MAY 17, 2022 (Atlanta, GA) With a promise to be the job board and hiring site for “people who hate real* jobs”, NuuWork announces the opening of its virtual doors to both job seekers looking for a new way to find fulfilling and fair work in today’s employment landscape, and companies hoping to acquire quality talent. The jobsite will especially focus on project-based work in tech and new and emerging services catering to the exponentially expanding field of e-commerce businesses needing support on everything from social media to lead generation.
With a plan to leave traditional and antiquated hiring practices behind for good, NuuWork has modernized every part of the job seeking journey. Gone are the days of sifting through faceless resumes, applicants and those posting projects must provide video answers to guided questions. The company also aims to put job applicants – who use the service for free – in the driver’s seat, allowing them to match with projects that are aligned to their values and create work on their own terms.
Says founder Shannan Monson, “The 9-to-5, traditional workplace—and many of the industries it was created to serve when it was established almost 100 years ago—is dead. We need to appreciate that and rise to meet our new needs, both in how we run our workplaces and also in how we hire. That is exactly why we created NuuWork. We intend to be the answer for the future of hiring, for the future of growth, and for the future of innovation for the new economy.
I also want NuuWork’s launch to serve as a powerful sign of hope for those who feel professionally lost at the moment, who may feel like they’re losing the employment race. You are not too late and your chance has not passed. You just need a place that will match your special skills and employment desires to the right project – and that’s NuuWork. The future of work is being created around us in real-time and there are new jobs in new industries being built as we speak. There’s opportunity and hope out there when it comes to the future of the workplace and that’s what we’re harnessing at NuuWork.”
Once users create a profile within NuuWork, they’ll receive a video resume that showcases their skills, values, and knowledge. The platform will then match talent with projects from innovative, tech-first companies.
Those hoping to make a change professionally while using NuuWork will soon find career advancing content and advice on the site, ranging from salary negotiation support to technology tips and education. The jobsite will also offer certification in trending tech industries including community growth, social media, digital marketing, and lead generation.
