How is Caerus creating the extensive searchable candidate database?

A unique and powerful feature of the Caerus Connections™ platform is the inclusion of the Career Driver Compass, an established and psychometrically-valid, online assessment that measures the workplace motivators of individual job candidates. This data provides both parties a comprehensive and objective understanding of the requirements of the open position and of the “fitness” of the candidate. Caerus Connections™ is the only recruitment site to offer this level of information, transparency, value, and return to both job candidates and hiring companies. To add to the rounded picture of job seekers, our searchable data also includes information candidates choose to include in their personal profile around subjects such as their hobbies and interests. 

Why are candidates attracted to the Caerus Connections platform?

Caerus Connections offers candidates better matches with our psychometrically-valid online assessments and access to comprehensive and verifiable data through a transparent platform.

How is it determined that a candidate is qualified? Who is vetting this?

Our Career Driver Compass quiz provides unique data about a candidate’s workplace motivators, allowing recruiters to determine if they are qualified match for the positions they are offering. All Career Driver Compass results are written to the blockchain-allowing for an unchangeable record that potential employers can access.

How is the candidate reference data created?

Employment verification will soon be possible on the Caerus Connections platform by using the Ethereum blockchain. While building their Caerus profile, users will be able to request that past employers “verify” employment by cryptographically signing their employment record through executing a smart contract.

Are the candidate social media profiles searchable? What about candidates with blocked information/profiles?

While we are exploring the potential for candidates to link to various social media profiles as part of their comprehensive Caerus profile, this functionality is not part of the existing platform features. Any connection to a candidate’s social media profiles will be voluntary.

How does the Caerus Platform compare to Glassdoor or other job search sites?

Through Caerus Connections, job seekers and recruiters are able to connect and communicate in a secure environment worldwide and rely on accurate and secure assessments that provide effective placement results.

How is the candidate assessment done?

While the Career Driver Compass will have a specific application on the Caerus Connections platform and the information will be stored anonymously, the data collected is open to further research for the creation of additional or outside algorithmic applications. Job seekers are given the option to complete the assessment through the Caerus Connections platform, but it is not a required piece of creating a user profile.

How is the tailoring of jobs matched to the candidate assessment?

The Career Driver Compass measures nine workplace motivators. After candidates take the Career Driver Compass quiz to find what motivates them in the workplace, the nine motivators are then listed in their profile. The motivators are ranked into “drivers” (top third), “avoiders” (bottom third), and “neutral” (middle third).

These results reveal how an employer can expect a candidate to “show up” on the job. If the job you’re hiring for closely matches a candidate’s motivators, the better a fit that candidate will be. Using this data to make hiring decisions increases applicant “fit” for a role and reduces turnover.

What’s the future AI potential?

The Caerus Connections data set can also be used, in partnership with 3rd party developers, for future AI projects.

Job Seeker FAQs

Can I use the platform without purchasing CAER tokens?

Yes, job seekers and recruiters can create profiles on the platform and access the basic membership features. Tokens are required to access any platinum features. Click here to review the different membership benefits.

Why should I use this platform over the other job search sites?

Unlike average job search sites the Caerus Connections platform offers a psychometrically-validated, career driver quiz which candidates use to showcase their individual work style preferences. Our proven Career Driver Compass assessment enables job seekers to match their workplace motivators with more compatible work opportunities and gain more satisfying employment.

How is Caerus making the job search process better?

Through Caerus Connections, job seekers are able to connect and communicate in a secure environment worldwide with potential employers. Job seekers can rely on accurate and secure career assessments that provide more compatible placement results.

How is my information kept secure?

Using blockchain technology, Caerus Connections employs a decentralized network to securely and confidentially gather and store large volumes of data.

What if I don't want my current employer to know that I am looking, how is this kept confidential?

Our platform will allow job candidates to maintain anonymous throughout the job search process, while still showcasing their unique talents to future employers. The communication flow of the site allows job candidates to make the final determination as to when to reveal their full identities to potential employers.

How does the process work?

As a job seeker, you can create a Caerus Connections profile for free. Simply fill out and submit your work history and employment preferences along with taking the Career Driver Compass quiz. Once your information is in our secure employment ecosystem, job recruiters will be notified of your compatible match and then can review your profile further with your permission. Communication between seekers and recruiters regarding interviews and employment begins with the job seeker’s approval for contact. You can choose to upgrade your account and enjoy the benefits of our Platinum accounts, such as visibility to the recruiting team’s contact information, by purchasing a Caerus Token.

How much does it cost in dollars?

A standard Caerus job seeker account is free. You can choose to upgrade to the benefits of our Platinum accounts by purchasing a Caerus Token for less than $35 using your PayPal account.

What happens after I get hired through Caerus?

If you find a position that’s a good fit through the Caerus Connections job board and the recruiter hires you, they will mark your online application as hired for that position. It doesn’t change your Caerus profile and you can keep that active as long as you want.

What if I'm no longer actively seeking a new job?

Since all user profiles are confidential until you choose to share your contact information with a recruiter, you can leave up your Caerus profile even if you’re not actively seeking a new job. You can also change your “contact me” setting to “no” until you’re ready to hear about potential new opportunities again.

Can I retake the Career Driver Compass Assessment?

Candidates will have the opportunity to complete multiple versions of the Career Driver Compass if they desire.

What's the benefit of blockchain in the job search process?

The Caerus Connections blockchain-based ecosystem stores employee data. This decentralized network is the foundation of our revolutionary recruitment platform that provides a simpler, more efficient, and verified experience for both job seekers and the recruiters.

Crypo Currency FAQs

Is the purchase of Caerus Token an investment?

No, the purchase of Caerus Token is not an investment. The Tokens being sold are exclusively for use on the Caerus Connections platform. The management team of Caerus Connections does not offer any promises, projections, or insights into the price of the Caerus Token after the sale. We believe that any Tokens that are traded on the secondary market will be for usage of the platform.

How do I get involved?

There are three easy steps to get involved with Caerus Connections:

  1. Set up a MetaMask Wallet: In order to receive and use your Tokens, you will need to sign up for a MetaMask wallet. Detailed instructions for doing so are here: Accessing Your Caerus Token
  2. Caerus Connections Profile: Create a profile on the Caerus Connections platform and off you go!

How do I purchase/pay for the Token? Can I use a fiat currency?

There will be two ways to purchase the Token:

  1. Pay using Ether (ETH): This is the recommended method for purchasing Caerus Token. Once you have set up and funded a wallet with Ether, you will initiate a transaction to send funds to the Caerus wallet. By doing this, you will activate a ‘smart contract’ that will automatically send you Tokens in proportion to the amount of Ether you paid (0.0024 ETH per Caerus Token).
  2. Pay using another currency (USD, BTC, LTC, other): This method will still work, it will just take longer to get your Tokens–about 24 hours from the time of purchase (see next FAQ). With this method you will send your preferred currency to the Caerus wallet of that type (send BTC to our BTC wallet, etc.) and fill out a form informing us of the details of your purchase, your information, and your wallet address. We will review the information and will send you the commensurate amount of Caerus Tokens to your ERC-20 compatible wallet.

When will I receive my purchased Tokens?

Any tokens purchased will be credited after the platform launches.

How will my Caerus Token be secured?

We recommend that all Caerus Tokens be stored in the MetaMask wallet. Instructions for downloading and installing this wallet are available on the Caerus Connections website. The MetaMask wallet is currently the gold-standard from a security standpoint for hot (online) wallets that store different types of ERC-20 Tokens.

Each wallet is protected in two ways: first, there is a randomly generated security phrase (called a “seed phrase”) that can be used to recover or access ay MetaMask wallet at any time. It is essential when you create your wallet you keep this code confidential. If you lose the code, you will lose access to all of your Tokens. Due to the immutable nature of the blockchain, once the coins are in your possession, Caerus Connections will not be able to access the coins, recover passwords for your wallet, or resend coins that have been lost or misplaced. In addition to the seed phrases, wallets are also secured using a password that is set by the user. Without access to both the seed phrase and the password, it is not possible to access the wallet.

The second security feature protecting your Tokens is the Ethereum blockchain itself. The blockchain is an immutable ledger that cannot be changed once a transaction has been recorded into it. Thus, once you have paid for your coins and have received them into your wallet, that transaction has been recorded into the blockchain forever and cannot be changed. If there is ever confusion as to how many Tokens were purchased, how much currency was paid, or if a malicious third party tries to steal your Tokens, there will be a record showing that you, and only you, have ownership.

How can I use my Caerus Token?

Caerus Token is for use on the Caerus Connection platform, a blockchain-based recruiting site that provides companies and potential employees with direct access to one another and to verified employment data. While some features on the Caerus Connections platform are free, enhanced features are available through a Platinum membership, which can be purchased with Caerus Tokens. Additional instructions for use of Caerus Token will be available on the Caerus Connections website.

Can I exchange my Caerus Token for/into other currency?

This is part of future development of Caerus Token and will not be an initial available feature. While we believe there should be limited need for a secondary market for Caerus Tokens, we also understand that users’ needs change and they may want to buy more Tokens or sell the ones they purchased after the platform launches. These exchanges occur on secondary markets which allow the exchange of Tokens for other Tokens, cryptocurrency, or fiat currency.

We would like to emphasize that we anticipate the only usage of the secondary markets will be to facilitate the transfer of Tokens so that they may be utilized on the Caerus Connections platform, and for no other purpose.

Is the Token usable in other countries/currencies?

Yes, we anticipate the Token will be used in all countries that allow their citizens to transact in and use crypto-assets.

How is the Token value determined?

Note: once the Ethereum price becomes less volatile and thus a better store of value, we may change the price of the retail coins to be reflected in ETH.

The value of the Tokens that are bought and sold on any third party exchanges will merely be a function of supply and demand for the Token. We have no interest in predicting how this value will change over time.

How much Token is available? Will this change in the future?

73,000,000 CAER Tokens were created and available for circulation.  Each Token can be divisible up to 8 decimal points.

What is the long-term goal for Caerus Connections?

The long-term goal for Caerus Connections is to be the primary platform through which companies and qualified candidates find one another.
