Hotmail co-founder Sabeer Bhatia launches a platform that helps people find jobs

Sabeer Bhatia, co-founder of Hotmail, launched a social video messaging platform ShowReel, which aims to empower people with upskilling and employment opportunities. The purpose-driven platform, currently in Beta mode, will match job seekers with companies that are struggling to find talent, designed with the vision of positively impacting lives with tech disruptions.

Sabeer Bhatia said that since the genesis of my entrepreneurial journey, building purpose-driven tech has been my driving force. This pursuit started with connecting millions of people across borders with Hotmail and found its realisation today with ShowReel. ShowReel aims to bring conversations alive and drive real value for job seekers and companies alike. Bhatia explained that you could have the best resources at your disposal, and access to the best companies to find the best job, and also the chance to simplify your hiring process with video resumes! By just enabling access, ShowReel will be able to work towards the greater good of millions of people. ShowReel will use AI to analyze collected data and drive actionable insights for the audience in its next phase. As we grow we will empower people with conversations and opportunities that go beyond employment and upskilling. Job seekers are able to create professional videos using ShowReel in response to questions posed by mentors or hiring companies. The app will then stitch these responses together to create a professional ShowReel. These questions are likely to give people looking for guidance across professional, personal, leadership and entrepreneurial growth an opportunity to prepare and self-improve. With partner companies coming on board to solve hiring challenges, the professional ShowReels will allow job seekers to market themselves.

The platform is a simulation of offline human interactions into the virtual world, aiming to empower people to achieve their potential by democratising free access to mentors and ultimately enabling employment and opportunities for job seekers across the globe at some leading companies. The company said that some of the top recruiters are being recruited by the Play Store iOS and Google Play Android Showreel.
