A New Day Dawns for Restaurants and Job Seekers
SEATTLE – Edizeven (pronounced 87) has hit the Seattle market this January as its prime time for job seekers and hiring managers at restaurants. Founder and CEO Shilpi Gupta created Edizeven to help remedy one of the biggest pain points in the restaurant world – hiring and retaining quality employees. The attrition rate in the restaurant industry hit an all-time high of 75% in 2019 up from 57.1% in 2010. Making it worse is the fact that culinary industry job seekers often have limited options to find work resorting to Craigslist or word of mouth to find work. Edizeven aims to reduce churn and simplify the job-hunting experience by efficiently matching restaurant employers to qualified job seekers at zero cost.
Edizeven changes the game for job posters. Unlike other competing platforms such as Craigslist, or Poached Jobs – Edizeven charges no fees for posters. In about 5 minutes, hiring managers can create a free job post which will be live on the site for 30 days. The platform automatically indexes key attributes and pulls in restaurant data from Google and Yelp to showcase each listing with a well-rounded set of data making it easier for job seekers to find and apply for the right roles.
Edizeven was created to help both job posters and seekers connect in an easy-to-use, streamlined manner. No longer will job seekers have to randomly search for postings – Edizeven provides them with targeted search capabilities to pinpoint the types of roles they are looking for using criteria such as role, restaurant type, cuisine, location and more. In addition, pre-curated lists targeted to the job seeker’s criteria are generated allowing for quick and easy location of opportunities that meet desired location ranges and salary levels. And last, but not least, Edizeven’s Resume Builder function creates sharp, noticeable resumes in minutes. All at no cost to the job seeker.
Edizeven is now available in the greater Seattle market with plans to expand to other cities in the future. Today on Edizeven, you can find a variety of jobs from well-known local establishments such as Nue Seattle, Thierry Rautureau’s Loulay, Super Six, Brian Clevenger’s Haymaker and Revel among many others. They’ve all 86’d yesterday’s way of finding employees and are starting fresh today!
