Information about MindMatch
MindMatch is a tool allowing Users qualifying as Clients to manage, organise and filter applications submitted by job seeking Candidates for a specific vacancy (“managing and filtering features”). In addition, MindMatch may make available to Clients Candidates' professional profiles suitable for the Client's needs as specified to MindMatch or otherwise made public (i.e. via job postings, vacancies etc.). Such profiles shall be made available to MindMatch by the Candidates themselves or sourced from third parties entitled and legitimated to transfer such personal data and information to MindMatch (“matching features”). Furthermore, Candidates can apply for a specific job of a Client through an apply form on the website. After clicking on a job ad on various job boards or social media sites Candidates are routed to job pages created by MindMatch for the Clients. On this job page Candidates have to provide their name, email, phone and CV to send an application. The Client can see the applications on the platform and contact the Candidate directly.
