People in the United States, Canada and Japan are spending far more time online than ever before.
And it’s not just for work.
They’re also looking for ways to boost their personal lives, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.
The survey found that online engagement has surged in recent years.
But what’s really important is that people aren’t just talking to each other; they’re talking to companies too.
That means there’s an urgent need for more jobs, experts say.
“It’s going to be a critical issue,” said Chris Lichtman, chief executive of StartSmart, an online recruitment company based in New York.
He added that many companies are “losing touch” with their users.
StartSmart is now hiring for its global recruitment team and hiring in Japan.
And the company is making sure to add more jobs in countries where it’s expanding.
Startups are also increasingly looking to people who aren’t currently employed as their first hires.
Some of those job seekers, however, are struggling with the job search process, said Scott Kelleher, the founder of LichtMan Group, a firm that works with companies on the recruiting side.
StartUp Nation: How to find a job for your next startup article StartUpNation.com recently launched a job-search site that lets job seekers submit their resumes and cover letters.
The site, which launched last week, was built by Licht Man Group and its partners.
The company uses machine learning to identify people who fit the profile of a potential employee and is then matched with them.
A candidate’s profile is then compared to hundreds of thousands of resumes submitted to job boards across the country, according the company.
In the United Kingdom, StartUpnation is currently using machine learning and machine-learning-based tools to match up candidates with companies and start-up companies.
“There’s been a massive increase in the number of people that are looking for jobs, and we have a great system that we’re building that is going to help that happen,” said Licht, who noted that there’s a shortage of hiring talent.
StartupNation.us is still in its early days.
The website is only accessible to the public.
But the company plans to expand its service in the next couple of months and add more hiring tools, said Littman.
He said he hopes that companies will soon be able to tap into their own hiring talent to help boost their own online recruitment efforts.
“The real challenge is going from job seekers to hiring,” Licht said.
“But there’s definitely a need for that.”
