New technologies have an increasingly significant impact on our lives. They not only change the way we communicate with one another, but also many other aspects of our day to day, such as our social and shopping habits. Searching for employment and the recruitment of workers have also been revolutionized, since new technologies provide new ways of finding talented employees wherever they are. This aspect turns the internet into a global tool.

The BeEmp project (Social Intelligence for boosting employability – https://beemp.usal.es/) makes use of social computing and big data for obtaining knowledge on the employability of individuals, this means that talent is found in an intelligent way. BeEmp will revolutionize recruitment for companies as they will be able to optimize the human resources that will make part of the workforce of their organizations.

 This project arises from the perfect combination of the team members from the BISITE Research Group and the BEBEE AFFINITY SOCIAL NETWORK SL company, which manages the beBee platform. This platform shows and visualizes personal branding, increasing people’s possibilities of getting noticed by recruiters, clients or other individuals offering a job position or collaboration in a project. Moreover, users obtain a wide network of professional contacts.

The “BeEMP” is financed by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness and it is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) under the call RETOS-COLABORACIÓN 2016 (ID: RTC-2016-5642-6) and it is in the process of development.
