SMErec

The SMErec project aims to provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) both science-based and practice-based innovative selection methods used as a recruiting tool. The ultimate objective is to make recruitment a more successful process.

During the project, Karelia UAS will develop a new type of technological competence for the career guidance of students, and the students and companies will gain experience and courage to take advantage of digitality during the recruitment process.

As a result of JOSEK Ltd and Turku UAS subprojects, competence-based views of the recruitment process will be acquired, and a web-based competence platform with a database for creating one’s virtual CV will be created.

The recruitment expertise in the companies involved will be enhanced, new digital tools will be acquired to be used by companies as help in their recruitment processes, and the attractiveness of the companies as employers will increase as well as potential applicants’ awareness of these companies. After the project, the new innovative digital tools could be utilised regardless of time and place.
