About us

Overview

Other job sites are proud to state that they put candidates first. This very concept of prioritising candidates has resulted in many of the issues that we see today, for both employers and candidates alike.

ShortlistMe has been designed to address these issues. After all, we are in the business of trying to get the right candidate for employers!

What ShortlistMe does is simple, candidates answer a series of quick, effective and powerful questions relevant to their particular job function area in a drop-down menu format. These questions are reverse engineered and answered by employers when posting a job, or head hunting the portal direct. Our algorithms match and rank candidates based on these exact selected questions and answers, creating accurate results each and every time.

We do not use key word searches to match candidates; we use exact matches. This allows vast volumes of candidates to remain in the shortlist, as let’s face it, most are following all the advice on how to cheat the AI algorithms! We can guarantee that every candidate in a chosen job function area will make the shortlist; where in the shortlist will be dependent on the employers requirements and the candidates percentage match.

Did we mention that in the interest of reducing the overall cost of employment worldwide, we play our part by allowing employers to post jobs, search and rank our entire database for free. Only if a candidate is a sufficient percentage match which employers wish to pursue, then a nominal fee is paid for credits to unlock candidate contact details. Unused credits never expire, which is our way of helping smaller businesses and the economy grow.
