JANZZ’s job matching platform ParaEmpleo singled out by the IDB as an AI success story

The IDB is an important driver of artificial intelligence as a tool to address challenges in the labor markets in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). As part of the IDB’s fAIr LAC initiative studies, they recently published an interesting report on how to utilize AI for labor intermediation in public employment services (PES). This technical paper provides an overview of key aspects considered by PES when deciding to adopt AI for their operations, as well as discussing the benefits and risks of implementing AI-based solutions for PES.

JANZZ is excited to share that its project ParaEmpleo – a semantic job matching platform realized in collaboration with Paraguay’s Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security (MTESS) – is described as a “success story in incorporating AI”. It is so far the only project of its kind in LAC, and JANZZ.technology is eager to continue implementing solutions for PES that use AI for social good, generating better social services and giving people more perspective.

Creative Associates International reported on UbicaNica.jobs

Creative Associates International reported on UbicaNica.jobs – our AI powered and un-biased job placement platform in Nicaragua. Ayan Kishore, Director at Creative’s Development Lab said in the article, “Nicaragua doesn’t really have many opportunities for somebody to go online and find a job, so if you’re in Nicaragua, you’re looking at newspaper or depending on word of mouth. That’s just not how people are finding opportunities in the rest of the world.” Thanks to the technology behind UbicaNica.jobs delivered by JANZZ and the other key leads on the project, it will be a real game-changer for the country’s job seekers, especially the youth. JANZZ.technology is keen to continue contributing to projects that use AI for social good and adopt ethical and responsible principles, thus generating better social services in more regions.

New AI job platform to bring together all the skills of Nicaragua and boost the economy

Zurich, Switzerland/Washington, DC/Managua, Nicaragua, October 2020 – JANZZ.technology, Creative Associates International, the SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) and Fundación COSEP (Superior Council of Private Enterprise) will soon launch Ubicanica.jobs, an AI-driven platform for Nicaragua designed to strengthen the search for jobs and talents, improve employability and boost the country’s economy.

In the adverse economic environment Nicaragua is currently faced with, and which has become even more precarious in recent months, many Nicaraguans lack information, perspective and visibility—especially the youth of Nicaragua, many of whom are denied opportunities to develop critical skills needed for employment, and access to quality training, job placement services and jobs.

The development organization Creative is tackling these issues through the Aprendo y Emprendo project financed by USAID and the SDC. This initiative aims at strengthening the private Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system in order to provide the youth of Nicaragua with vocational skills, life skills, work readiness skills, and soft skills training that will help them become capable employees and entrepreneurs. As part of this project, Creative partnered up with Fundación COSEP, a foundation of the leading business chamber in Nicaragua, and Swiss tech firm JANZZ.technology to develop Ubicanica.jobs, which contributes by providing visibility, career counseling and job placement services.

“Our objective was to create a unique platform that will bring together all the skills and work opportunities of Nicaragua, matching precisely the right people to the right jobs,” says Stefan Winzenried, CEO of JANZZ.technology. “We really hope that as many people and companies as possible use the platform. The potential of having all job offers, job seekers and everything that is involved in the labor market on a single platform is massive: it will improve employment opportunities for everyone on every level.”

Unlike Nicaragua’s existing platforms, job searches on Ubicanica.jobs are not based on keywords. Instead, the user posts a profile of their individual skills and competences, which the system then analyzes using artificial intelligence and compares with the requirements of potential job offers. The technology behind it processes job-related data through deep learning algorithms and knowledge graphs to identify the best possible matches between jobs and candidates and make accurate suggestions to both job seekers and recruiters. The platform can also show users how to improve their chances in the labor market. The system analyzes which jobs and skills are currently in demand and based on the user’s profile, it recommends courses and training to improve employability.

To help mitigate the effects of the current situation in Nicaragua, the platform needed to be up and running as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. It was thus implemented as a white label product—in just 90 days—and is now operated by Fundación COSEP as a SaaS solution together with JANZZ.technology. COSEP is convinced that utilizing the innovative approach of Ubicanica.jobs will drive the social and economic development of the country. “Employment and entrepreneurship are key to a society’s wellbeing and we all have something to offer,” says one of their leading officials. “Through Ubicanica.jobs we can boost Nicaragua’s economy and strengthen our society by better matching the country’s talents and needs. If we all sign up and use the platform, it’ll be a real game-changer.”

1.000.000 CVer «WANTED»

Prøver du å skrive den aller beste CVen for å imponere rekrutterere og for å få drømmejobben din? Visste du at i gjennomsnitt, sendes 250 CVer inn til hvert jobbtilbud, og du vil ha 2% sjanse til å bli innkalt til intervju for drømmejobben din? Ja, 2%. Nå kan du lure på hvordan rekrutterere velger ut 2%. Vel, de fleste bruker programvare for talentadministrasjon til å scanne igjennom CV-er, og luke ut opptil 50% av CV-ene, som aldri har blitt sett på. Auda, ja, utlukingen kan inkludere din CV, og i det tilfellet mottar du et standard avslag og en takke-e-post etterpå.

I JANZZ.technology bygger vi en alternativ løsning som gjør at hver CV kan bli evaluert av kunstig intelligens, og viktigst av alt, hver søker vil motta tilbakemelding fra systemet vedrørende sine manglende ferdigheter (hvorfor du ikke blir ansatt) og mulige forslag til videreutdanning (hvordan du kan forbedre sjansene dine) for å sikre deg denne jobben i fremtiden.

Til dette formålet ber vi deg om å hjelpe oss med å forbedre maskinlæringsalgoritmen vår. På den måten kan du bidra til å skape det menneskelige elementet i AI-systemer:

  • Send din CV til info@janzz.technology. Hvis du føler deg mer komfortabel som anonym , kan du slette din personlige informasjon.
  • Språk: vi ser etter CVer på fransk, italiensk, engelsk, tysk, gresk, norsk, nederlandsk, portugisisk, andre språk som brukes i EU, koreansk, kinesisk, japansk, thai, indonesisk, malaysisk, vietnamesisk og arabisk.
  • Format: Hvilket som helst. Fra et 2 siders Word dokument til de mest kreative og innovative CVer.
  • Vi lover å ikke sende spammail eller bruke CVen din til andre formål enn maskinlæring. Vi vil også slette CV-en din etter at den har tjent formålet sitt.

Hjelp oss spre budskapet, så holder vi deg oppdatert på antall CVer vi mottar.

1,000,000 CVs wanted

Are you trying to write the best CV to impress recruiters and get your dream job? Do you know that, on average, each corporate job offer attracts 250 resumes and you will only have a 2% chance to be interviewed for your dream job? Yes, 2%. Now you may wonder how recruiters pick the 2%. Well, most of them use talent-management software to screen CVs, weeding out up to 50% of resumes, which have never been looked at. Ouch, yep, this might include yours and that is why you always receive a standard rejection-but-thank-you email afterwards.

At JANZZ.technology, we are building an alternative solution which allows each resume to be evaluated by artificial intelligence and, most importantly, each applicant will receive feedback from the system elaborating on their missing skills (why you were not hired) and possible suggestions for further education (how you can improve your chances) in order to secure a similar job in the future.

For this purpose, we are asking you to help us improve our machine learning algorithm. Here is how you can contribute to creating the human element in AI systems:

  • Send your CV to info@janzz.technology. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you can delete your personal information.
  • Language: we are looking for resumes in French, Italian, English, German, Greek, Norwegian, Dutch, Portuguese, other languages used in the EU, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese and Arabic.
  • Format: Any. From the standard 2 pages word doc. to the most creative and innovative ones.
  • We promise not to spam you or use your CV for any other purpose other than machine training. We will also delete your CV after it has served its purpose.

Please help us to share the message and we will keep you updated with the latest number of resumes we received.

ParaEmpleo identified as a best practice in the field of AI in Latin America and the Caribbean

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) plays a key role in driving the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) as a tool to address social challenges. Working together with regional experts, the IDB designed the fAIr LAC initiative to promote responsible adoption of AI, thereby improving the delivery of government services such as Public Employment Services (PES) and creating development opportunities in the region. The fAIr LAC initiative aims to close gaps and reduce the growing social inequality in LAC.

As one of the first steps of this initiative, the IDB recently conducted a preliminary analysis of the progress made by countries in LAC regarding the use of AI in social services. The report Artificial Intelligence for Social Good in Latin America and the Caribbean: The Regional Landscape and 12 Country Snapshots introduced the best practices in the field of AI in the region. JANZZ.technology is delighted to share that its project ParaEmpleo – a job matching solution realized in collaboration with Paraguay’s Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security – is one of them. JANZZ.technology is keen to continue contributing to projects that use AI for social good and adopt ethical and responsible principles, thus generating better social services in more regions.

Artificial intelligence revolutionizing job search in Paraguay thanks to the help of the Inter-American Development Bank BID and JANZZ.technology

The IADB helped Paraguay create the “Labour Intermediation Support Programme System“(Sistema del Programa de Apoyo a la Intermediación Laboral – SIPAIL), a job search tool that, among other things, supports the change from paper records to digital records in employment management offices, facilitates the analysis of online CVs and encourages the publication of vacancies throughout the country.
