Like many tech sectors, blockchain and crypto is experiencing a real talent shortage. But, Dubai-based HR tech startup, HUMANS, has the solution, launching the first ‘network-to-earn’ career platform developed specifically for web3, which instead of relying on recruitment agencies to source candidates via LinkedIn, actually incentives professionals ‘handshakers’ already working in Web3. Interestingly, handshakers can earn up to $4,000 for recommending a friend or colleague.
Hundreds of handshakers from companies like Binance, Coindesk and CoinMarketCap have already connected their contacts to top crypto jobs, while P2P, Superdao and 3Commas are amongst those hiring via HUMANS.
Anton Fateev, CEO, HUMANS, said:
“HUMANS is on a mission to reinvent careers in web3 by offering an innovative new approach, which enables professionals to recommend people from their network and get paid for it. We believe this is the most efficient and expedient way for web3 companies to hire the best people. With talent in such demand, HUMANS also provides a highly-visible platform through which web3 startups can build their employer brand and stay competitive in this highly dynamic sector.”
HUMANS gets the job done by professionals ‘handshakers’ already working in Web3
The problem with recruitment agencies is that they don’t really know the candidates they approach, beyond what it says on their LinkedIn profile.
HUMANS network-to-earn model takes an altogether more personal approach, as most professionals have usually worked with the person they are recommending before. As a result, they have a much deeper understanding of that person’s experience, soft-skills, career goals and personality. This enables them to match potential candidates with an accuracy and speed which far exceeds any recruitment agency. In return, ‘Handshakers’ can earn up to $4,000 for each successful recommendation.
Molly Jane Zuckerman, HUMANS ‘Handshaker’ and head of content at CoinMarketCap, said that as a non-technical person that works in Web3, I have so many friends from my non-crypto life that are so curious about what I do, and how they could bridge the leap into the Web3 world.
“Instead of me spending time acting as a headhunter, trying to connect my talented friends with people I know that are hiring, this platform helps me organize what I’ve been doing in a very disorganized (and free!) way all along,” Molly added.
Building stronger employer brands
According to Glassdoor, 75% of active job seekers are more likely to apply to a job if the employer actively manages its employer brand, while a strong employer brand can reduce the cost per hire by as much as 50%. However, many web3 companies struggle with how best to describe themselves or what benefits to offer, resulting in confusing job descriptions.
With the full support of the HUMANS in-house creative team, web3 companies can create engaging company profile pages, which help to transform their employer brand. Each company page includes a concise company profile, a tech stack overview, description of the team, plus an events page.
HUMANS Metaverse Platform
The HUMANS development team is already working on creating the next version for the platform, which will see HUMANS launch its own metaverse. In this metaverse, candidates will be able to discover web3 projects, socialize with their teams and attend events. Users of the metaverse will also be able to discover and experience featured technologies from those companies within the HUMANS metaverse.
In addition, a new tokenized recommendation model, which would enable Handshakers to exchange, regardless of whether their recommended contact gets the job.
