Network boasts technology that better connects employers to jobseekers

Employers competing for talent can turn to a new online job-matching and career-planning tool to quickly fill openings exacerbated by a tight labor market.

The Hoosier Talent Network from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development is powered by artificial intelligence to better help employers find the best prospects in the right locations based on an individual’s unique potential at no cost, according to a news release from the department.

“The Hoosier Talent Network opens up new doors for employers and connects them with the job seekers who are the best match for their current workforce needs,” said Chad Carter, the network’s project leader. “This platform has the capability to be a game changer in getting the state’s employers back on track for future success.”

More than 16,000 job seekers have created accounts on the page.

Companies ranging from small businesses to large corporations can use the available advanced technology to get matched with potential workers with all types of skills by visiting hoosiertalentnetwork.com. Job seekers also can visit the same site to discover the benefits available to them.

One of the most important features is the technology that looks at each person’s potential and capabilities. Instead of simply matching job seekers to a similar job they’ve once held, the network demonstrates to them how their talents can be deployed differently in a growing company or industry.

For both employer and job seeker, the goal is to find that career-defining, long-term fit that benefits both.
