    JobKaddi Jobkaddi is dedicated to college students, the most important group for growing businesses hiring entry level candidates. For some students even entry level opportunities seem out of reach. Most students only have access to and knowledge of the large companies in their community leaving them with little awareness of all opportunities available especially those small businesses. They are also typically limited to their general area or applying to specific companies in other regions rather than looking with a wider angle at all possibilities. For businesses, especially small companies, they have to recruit hard to find top talent. They are usually limited to candidates that have been passed over by the large corporations, and mostly interact with students from their region. Most students don’t have an idea what the potential is at many small businesses, have no understanding of their culture, and never get to experience what could be with so many openings at great companies across the country. JobKaddi is dedicated to creating top analytics and technologies that allow these students and businesses to find one another and help each other grow. Using profile testing, custom video elevator pitches, business culture spotlights, allows students and businesses alike to find the right candidate and the right role.
