Mankato, MINN (June 5, 2017) – GreenSeam is proud to launch an online job and internship portal called GreenSeam Talent Exchange. GreenSeam has partnered with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce (MN Job Match) and RealTime Talent to host a cutting-edge matching technology that will transform the recruitment process and streamline  how employers and candidates  connect with each other during the job and internship search process, reducing potential turnover and overall hiring costs.

Over the past year, the work of the GreenSeam Education Action Team has identified the need for a centralized hub to post and search for jobs. One goal was to increase the ag industry pipeline. Through surveys and roundtable discussions, they received overwhelming feedback from hundreds of businesses in the region with one common denominator – the need for an online resource to match the skills and expertise of individuals to businesses and organizations with greater potential than traditional job search boards.

GreenSeam Talent Exchange systematically aligns talent with opportunity by utilizing questions about interests, preferences, desired workplace environment and priority needs to begin the search process. Using correlated question-sets directed to both employers and candidates, this platform aligns talent with opportunities much like an online dating site. Job seekers and employers are matched based on their answers, skills and resu me. This process provides optimal matches, reducing time and cost.

The portal provides automated reports for simpler EEOC reporting as well as notifying job seekers and employers of their top matches. It also seamlessly integrates promotion through social media and automatically posts to 5,000 other, no cost local, regional and national job sites.

“We are truly excited to be launching the GreenSeam Talent Exchange – a brand new tool for posting and searching for talent, both full-time careers and internships. This is an entirely new way of thinking about the online job search process,” said Sam Ziegler, Director of GreenSeam. “We are looking forward to partnering with all communities in the GreenSeam region to attract and retain talent of all experience levels.”

Greater Mankato Growth will be hosting a series of Lunch ‘n Learn events beginning on Wednesday, June 7 from noon – 1:00 pm at Greater Mankato Growth, 1961 Premier Drive, Sakatah Trail Room. There will be five or six events held, once per week, depending on the level of interest. Registration for non-GMG Members is $20 and is offered at no cost to GMG Members.
