Streamling job shadowing or a try before you buy for careers.
Betagig (“Beta test your next gig”) is a new platform that is streamlining the process of job shadowing, allowing students, recent grads, and career changers to discover opportunities and jobs they didn’t know existed. Job shadowing is a highly under utilized technique currently in the career development process. From an employer’s perspective, by allowing job shadowing, an HR manager is able to influence and drive the market to fulfill their unmet hiring needs to solve problems like lack of diversity or high demand and not enough supply for a position. Additionally, 65% of people look for a new job within 91 days of being hired and 52% of people say they think they would be more successful in a job they found themselves than one a recruiter found them or one in which they were contacted by a company. We aim to aid in the challenge of turnover and bad hires by empowering students and career changers to seek out jobs themselves and experience a day in the life of that job.
