A new Cork based start-up is aiming to offer jobseekers a new way to get their CV in front of potential employers. Showmycv.ie is the brainchild of Niall Mullane, a 34 year-old from Glanmire who got the idea for the new website when he was personally affected by the recession when he lost his own job at the end of 2008.
“I’ve been working consistently since I was 17,” said Niall, “so being suddenly out of work with a family to support was a bit of a shock to the system.”
While searching for work himself, Niall realised there was no dedicated Irish website offering unemployed people the opportunity to promote themselves to nationwide employers free of charge.
Showmycv.ie offers a platform where people who are looking for work can get their CV in front of the right people people at no cost, and a pool of readily available candidates for potential employers. Candidates can log in to the site to update their details at any time, and reply to messages from prospective employers.
"At the end of the day,people out of work need to feel as if there doing something positive in their search for a job, and i felt there was a need for all employers to view all job-seekers CVs for free," commented Niall. "I believe that showmycv.ie can help countless people hit by the recession and make a positive move in getting Ireland back working."
