With LinkedIn now a staple of the recruitment world, having a profile is pretty much essential for job-hunters and people wanting to showcase their skills.
However, Berlin-based startup Somewhere thinks that the new world of work deserves a new way of showcasing your talents. As such, it has just opened up its image-oriented work skills platform to the public, although you’ll still need to request an invite for now.
A main profile page looks a little like a Pinterest board, with little square boxes of information (called ‘Sparks’) arranged on the page containing information about skills, work history etc. On the main profile page, all the Sparks are shown together – but there are also links for jumping directly to specific information about a person, with categories like: ‘What I do’, ‘How I work’, ‘What I’ve done’, ‘Interest and inspiration’, ‘Aspirations’, ‘People who matter’ and more.
