The Janeous app by Hawkins Global Pte Ltd seeks to disrupt the HR talent identification by maximizing the interview process while decreasing funds, time, and labor expended.

Hiring professional employees is hard, and interviewing takes too long.

This is what Janeous aims to improve through its intuitive and digitally-based platform.

Janeous aims to increase the quality and number of effective interviews that companies can perform by providing a fully integrated talent identification system which leverages the network effect and multiple algorithms to reduce the time spent interviewing candidates.

With over half of Singaporeans rejecting a job offer after 8 weeks and the increase in the time it takes to hire someone (now 30-68 days), a better talent identification solution is needed.

Janeous provides this solution by facilitating a more valuable first contact between company and candidate.

This process allows companies to more effectively weed out candidates and focus on potential fits.
