A new way to look at the workplace could make Zephyrs job search more rewarding, according to a startup that has partnered with Microsoft to develop a platform for job seekers to access the skills they need.
The company, which recently raised $100 million in Series B funding, has developed a platform that lets job seekers search for jobs in the most popular industries through a system that it calls the Zephy Network.
The platform allows job seekers who already have a job to connect with job seekers in their industry and earn commission for completing tasks.
The platform is not the first attempt by Zephry to build a platform to connect job seekers with jobs, but it is the first time it has partnered directly with Microsoft, a company known for making technology for large companies that is already making a push into the job market.
Zephyr has a $20 billion market cap and has a team of 30 employees in Boston.
The company says it is not interested in building a standalone platform for hiring but is looking at other approaches to connecting job seekers.
“The biggest problem in job search today is that job seekers are just looking for jobs and are not really looking for a specific company or industry,” said Zephys co-founder and CEO David Mihaly, who has worked in the technology industry for 25 years.
In addition to connecting potential job seekers, the platform could also provide a boost to companies in the job search field that have already invested in the Zypher platform, Mihaley said.
With Microsoft, Zephries platform could help them reach the millions of job seekers looking for an online job.
Microsoft has partnered in the past with companies like Yelp and Uber to create tools for job applicants and employees to use to connect and interact with other job seekers and job seekers within their industry.
The Zephrys platform is a part of Microsoft’s commitment to connecting with jobseekers through its own online platform, which is the same way it connects job seekers across the globe.
Microsoft recently announced that it will partner with the Zepher Network in the coming months to provide job seekers access to job postings in more than 250,000 industries across its platform.
The partnership will allow job seekers searching for a job in an industry to find jobs in that particular industry through Zephers job search platform.
