Want a bit of background about why we've launched Next Mile? Well, keep reading…

When you really think about it, the way we advertise a job today and then have people apply to it hasn’t really evolved. We’ve basically gone from newspapers to online, meaning it’s easy to advertise a job anytime. It’s also become super easy for people to apply for jobs, but is that a good thing?

Employers quickly became inundated with applicants, most of which weren’t suitable. To combat this, they added layers of tech to help filter applicants. Most of this tech is expensive and doesn’t work that well, as they are based on interpreting unstructured CVs and job ads.

As employers became distanced from applicants, hiding behind the tech, feedback or worse, even acknowledgment seemed to disappear. Knowing this, people started to take a punt at far more jobs than they may be qualified for, or look at ways to game the system just to get noticed.

The result? Employers are inundated again, and the tech has really struggled to keep up. So what’s the solution? Well, more tech keeps getting layered on. It’s become a cat and mouse game.

This means looking for a job today, takes a lot of time and drives a lot of frustration. From an employer perspective, finding the right staff is taking longer and costing more than it ever has.

We’ve experienced this personally from both sides, and well, it sucks. We may not have all the right answers yet, but we’re having a go at fixing it because what exists today isn’t working.

    Hi there,

    I'm Josh and I'm one of the co-founders of Next Mile.

    Thanks for checking us out. I'm keen to answer any questions - whether they're about Next Mile or even just general questions about finding a job or finding staff. I'm happy to help if I can.

    As we've just launched, I'm sure there may be a few areas where we might have missed the mark for you. So let me know - I'd like to get on to fixing it for you right away.

    Cheers,
    Josh

      Hey Josh,

      Just a heads up - I clicked on your cheapies referral link, and it doesn't let you exit from the video! Had to remove 'cheapies' from the URL to go the homepage.

      On sign up it also says I already have an account - which I don't! Tried to reset my password in case I did, but no email came through. Look like a couple bugs to squash, but awesome concept :)
