STEP BY STEP
We all know people or have been there ourselves when we find the perfect job on a job board or LinkedIn and spend the whole day tweaking our resume and writing that cover letter to suit the posting.
The old way of getting noticed isn’t working anymore – we need something new!
STEP 1. ENGAGEMENT
Relationships are key to finding your next job and the one after that. You have to dig the well before you need to drink. Relationship building takes time, it isn’t only when you find yourself out of a job as most times people are surprised when they are let go. Ongoing skills training and engagement are key.
STEP 2. CHANGE THE EXPERIENCE
More than 45% of job seekers never hear anything back from the employer, 83% of candidates rate their job search experience poor. We need to be able to let people know about our experiences with recruiters. Who are the good ones and who are the ones that ghost.
STEP 3. CONNECTIONS
We encourage our members to connect and actively monitor whether relationships are being nurtured. It is not about how many connections you have, it is about how often you spend connecting. If the relationship isn’t maintained we remove the connection.
STEP 4. REWARDS
Job seekers need help to get the resources they need when funds are tight – we recognize this and reward members for engaging in the community through our Jobz Cafe Perks Program so they can build up their own reserve to use for our services.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them – Albert Einstein
We are not a staffing agency or job board and do not generate revenue from job postings or placement fees – we are a membership community that provides the resources needed by the forgotten groups – the long term unemployed, people over 40, veterans and other disadvantaged groups. We are Jobz Cafe.
GETTING PEOPLE TOGETHER FASTER
There is a need for fairer, transparent recruiting and Jobz Cafe is developing an ecosystem that will deliver this and more. We have analyzed the problems and identified solutions that will encourage a shift in the thinking about the way job seekers spend their time looking for their next opportunity, and the way recruiters find their next great hire.
Job seekers need to know that they have at least a chance of being considered for an interview. Many career sites focus on the next generations – we focus on the forgotten groups of individuals, struggling to be seen. Our mission is to get companies to see that great employees come from all different sources – over 40, veterans, return to work parents, military spouses and ex-felons.
We have developed an online networking environment that encourages engagement and building of the relationships that are necessary in this tight labor market. Most jobs are got by who you know and how strong the relationship is, not by what you know or where you went to school.
WE HAVE THE
The modern organization structure is evolving to meet the next generation. A shared or distributed leadership structure caters for a high-performance culture by allowing individuals to do what they are good at and minimizing the need to do things they are not able to excel at.
We all spend considerable amounts of time in the pursuit of career goals and so we encourage individuals to obtain these goals, whether with Jobz Cafe or any other company.
We don’t own employees; rather we are custodians for whatever length of time employees are with us.

Jobz Cafe Perks
We know that it is difficult to find the spare cash to spend on your own career development, especially if you are not currently working or in a job that doesn’t pay enough. That is why we wanted to have a rewards program that will benefit everyone. We provide incentives for people to share Jobz Cafe with their friends and colleagues, but we also just reward you for engaging in the community.
That way, even if you have the spare cash, you don’t have to use it, you can redeem your beans for the services and keep your cash for something else. If you collect a whole lot of beans, we even encourage you to transfer your beans to someone else who may not have enough.
We have a built in Pay it Forward program.
