Interim professionals have a whole host of skills outside of the “job” and “client” they work for. It is about time to reassess how we identify, hire and manage this talent pool. This is where InteriMarket comes in.
Our motto is a simple one, “Hakuna ma tata”. What we mean by this is that we’re on a mission to eliminate the need for interim professionals to jump through a succession of hoops for a chance to get their ‘foot in the door’. We focus on helping professionals and employers eliminate hurdles to securing the right opportunities at the most opportune time.
This blog only scrapes the surface of what InteriMarket means for the temporary employment marketplace. So, look out for future posts around benefits the system offers to its network of users.

Why it’s time to bid farewell to CVs
It’s no secret that creating your Curriculum Vitae (CV) feels like writing your autobiography at a far too early stage of your life. We’ve all been through it, sifting through our life story, trying to make a good impression on prospective employers by creatively filling those blank spaces with information that doesn’t say that much about us. Even at best, CVs have always painted vague pictures of candidates; requiring interviews followed by a series of follow-up negotiations to finally – and hopefully – offer the right candidate the job.
Old systems and processes simply don’t cut it any longer
When considering the time and resources wasted on traditional placement procedures – especially involving the interim recruitment market – it’s easy to understand the frustrations both gig and talent seekers have to endure. At InteriMarket, we’re taking the lead in re-imagining outdated pen-and-paper processes to bring users of our platform a new and innovative way to connect with the right opportunities.
Making complex employment processes simple and efficient
InteriMarket is a niche employment sourcing platform built on leading-edge cloud technology. This makes it easy for a vast population of interim professionals and talent seekers to connect seamlessly. The platform brings job and talent seekers together through smart-matching technology that correlates key individual skills, expertise and strengths to job specifications posted by talent seekers.
Our mission is simple: to help interim gig seekers raise their professional profiles and assist them in connecting with opportunities in a way that is relevant, efficient and rewarding.
Here’s a brief explanation of how InteriMarket replaces incumbent employment processes:
A free network of professionals and resources awaits you: InteriMarket allows users the freedom to network, collaborate and apply for jobs, or pipeline their work, in a safe environment – for free.

We’re expert matchmakers: The InteriMarket platform uses basic profiling, which enables users to add relevant and practical skills and achievements to their profiles. Users add their core competencies from a list of (SHL) accredited skills. Based on these core competencies, they show up in recruiters’ search results who are looking to secure top talent.
Lights, camera, action! Users can record an entertaining and informative one-minute video. This video will introduce them to the InteriMarket network and allows talent seekers to vet potential candidates better. A video is an excellent way to make that first impression. It cuts out the need to set up initial interviews. By the time gig and talent seekers meet in the flesh, they are steps ahead in the game. Can your CV do that?
InteriMarket is a platform developed for the 21st-century workforce
As we look to enhance our platform further and have great plans of incorporating psychometrics, strengths-based assessments and much more. The profiles will be easily downloadable in several formats. This will help users use these profiles of practical, real-time information and skills to present themselves.
This is just the beginning for us. We are sure to keep doing more to help in various ways we can. So don’t delay and join us.
