Lately, we've been improving and simplifying how companies can hire with Peerlist. And to get started, here are some brilliant updates for you. This is a little long update, so you can get a coffee or something before you start reading.

Today, we're introducing these massive improvements available for companies that are hiring with Peerlist and also for candidates!

✨ Peerlist Matched

“A list of the best candidates every time you post a job!”

Peerlist is a unique place to find and hire the most credible talent because of verified profiles with proof of work. When hiring, it's not about the volume of applications. It's about finding the right fit. With Matched, post a job, and we'll recommend you the perfect candidates. No noise, just the right matches.

On your job dashboard, there's a new tab titled Matched. Here, you'll discover candidates suited for the role.

We don't guarantee you thousands of applications, but we ensure that you get top-matched candidates you can interview and eventually hire!

Yes, we've introduced a people recommendation algorithm! Now, Peerlist suggests people you might know or be interested in, like old coworkers, college friends, or those hiring for interesting roles. Plus, it shows you the folks who you interact with and more.

We have been continuously making significant improvements to enhance the overall product experience on Peerlist. These improvements have been achieved by introducing innovative generative AI features that are seamlessly integrated throughout the entire platform.

and some tiny features.

  • Edit/crop profile picture while uploading a new one.
  • View profile picture on other’s profile.
  • Profile tags (Skills) recommendation. You can read about it here.
