Talent

Simply put, skills are things that we can do. We learn them through life, through school through work. Check out wikipedia’s https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skill definition. Life skills are things you learn from living or your surroundings. We have a lot of skills from here that most people don’t even recognize as valuable in the job market. Soft Skills involve your social and people skills. Hard skills are the things you actively had to seek out to learn. A lot of people confuse attributes and personality with their skills. Attributes and personality are who you are. Skills are the things you can do. Most people have 100’s of skills. Most jobs require just as many. When you are looking for a match, list the skills that make you unique or make the job unique or tell exactly what you are looking for. If you want more advice, connect with a pw career coach.

Talent is someone who wants to work. Yes, it really is that simple. Everyone has a skill, ability or passion that contributes to getting work done around the world. Creating your profile allows you to tell the world what they are and to give us the opportunity to connect you with work.

Pepelwerk Talent are newbies to the working world, creatives, experienced professionals, skilled labor, specialist, retirees looking for supplemental income, cashiers, drivers, full-time, part-time, contractors, interns, etc.. Like we mentioned, Talent is someone who wants to work.

Because we are in the business of making People (aka Talent) first. We commit to keeping you earning, relevant, and informed as you navigate the working world.  As a Talent member, you have a unique opportunity to create a profile that can stay with you your entire working life. As your skills change and become more advanced, so does your earning potential. Our tool is designed to keep the process simple and engaging at varying levels of membership. As we grow, Talent users will have exclusive access to benefits, perks and social events.

The sooner you sign-up, the better. Not just because we want you to join the pw movement but, because timing matters for special perks, feature notifications and benefits.

Signing up for a pepelwerk account is easy! Download the pepelwerk app from your Play Store or App Store. After opening the app for the first time, you will be guided through a few quick steps to “Create an Account.”

Absolutely! Pepelwerk is a tool that can be beneficial for a broad range of experience levels, even none at all. We don’t track past work experience. We care about what you can do. Skills and abilities are tested in work environments but learned in real-life. Learn more about skills.

Yes. We connect you with opportunities that fit within your busy schedule. Here at pepelwerk, we want our Talent members to maximize their earning potential. One of the ways we help with that is by connecting you with work that is available when you are.

You don’t necessarily need one with how pepelwerk matches you with opportunities, but you will have the option to attach a resume file to your Talent Profile during account set-up. Since Talent use the pepelwerk app, be sure that your mobile device has the necessary tools to upload documents to pepelwerk.

Work is available anywhere our US based Employers post their working opportunities. Talent will only see working opportunities that they have valid work authorizations for or citizenship in.

We are here for you. At any point within the process, we are available to assist with any questions you may have. Depending on your membership, you will also have dedicated Coaching sessions that will further help in landing the perfect job but more importantly, get you on a path that helps you lead your ideal work life.

No. Scrolling through tons of job listings that could only end up being a waste of your time, is not our thing. We want to connect you with the employers you will have the most success with. We will do the search, the application and hustle for you!

pepelwerk takes personal data protection seriously. At no time, unless you give us permission, do we share your data outside of the pw house. That is why advertising is not part of our business model. We want all of our users to determine their own experience on the platform.

No. Your account information and your profile is not accessible to the public.Your Talent profile can only be viewed by the hiring manager of a position you have matched with.

pepelwerk does not check references for the creation of your profile. But please don’t try to fake it till you make it. It will only end up hurting your personal brand and work reputation. Once you are matched with an opportunity, the potential employer may require this during their screening procedures.

Yes and no. Creating an account is free. Once you see that employers are interested in considering you for their positions, you will want to take a look at our membership levels that will be the right fit for you. We have Free Users and Basic Memberships for $10/month + tax.
As a Free User, you have the opportunity to set up your profile, which potential employers will be able to view. Pepelwerk will notify you when an employer wants to consider you for an interview. In order to move forward in the process, a membership is required. As a Free User, you will not be able to do so.

As a paid member, you will have the ability to let the employers know you would like to move forward to the interview process. You have access to all of the features listed on the Talent page of the website. In addition, paid members have a Coach to help sort out the many choices you have in the kind of work you want to do. Use the membership for as little or as long as you would like. We’re flexible!

First, let’s start with what it’s not. It is not the fad phrase work-life balance, it’s not psychological counseling or any type of mental health or medical services. Coaching is not a substitute for professional advice by legal, financial, or other qualified professionals. You should seek independent professional guidance for these types of matters.

Coaching is a partnership that encourages a person to move forward towards their goals through thoughtful questions, action planning and goal setting. Coaching is a forward thinking and forward moving process centered around you creating the type of work life you want. Our coaching starts with the foundation that everyone chooses the work they do for different reasons, different priorities, different dreams and aspirations. Our coaching helps you figure that out.

Again, coaching services are not to be construed as, or a replacement for, psychological counseling. You have access to the Coach services at different levels of membership.

Yes. Each account must be created with a unique e-mail address.

During account creation, you will be asked to verify your e-mail address, using a temporary passcode that is delivered to your provided e-mail. If you do not see it in your Inbox or Spam/Junk folder, tap the “Resend Code” link, and we’ll send a new one to you. If you still do not have the e-mail with the passcode after selecting resend, Contact Us.

Employer

An employer is an individual or organization, that is registered and has an Federal Employment Identification Number, and interested in hiring Talent directly to do work that moves forward their business, ideas and profits. Franchise owners, Private equity Firm and multi-organization structures are also Employers on the platform. Our biggest benefit is one platform for every account and the ability to keep Talent longer, no matter how business fluctuates.

The answer to that can get pretty long but we will start with our favorite. Employers become users of our platform because we provide solutions that address problems for Operations, Finance and HR under one tool.  Our Talent Acquisition set of features are designed to connect Employers with a direct pool of the most versatile Talent, at prices that make sense, that can handle multiple accounting and business entities.  Most importantly we remove the data dump and mismanagement of applicants that the current systems in the market place leave you with.

We are committed to improving your time to fill, cost to fill, churn rate and more by providing a dashboard that shows how good we are doing and how good you are doing.

It is our goal to not only provide you with a healthy pool of candidates for your working opportunities, but to connect you with an ideal match as efficiently as possible. Based on your required specifications, we will ensure you will not miss the most qualified candidates. You create the job posts and we’ll take it from there.

A company’s hiring strategy varies based on size, industry and roles. If you have a particular question, please contact us and we can help. In general, once you are a pw employer we give you all the tools you need to add us into your strategy. We first recommend you decide what kind of roles you want to match with. We can pretty much match with 90% of the jobs you need filled. The 10% of senior leadership and executive generalist we leave to LinkedIn. They do a good job.

We ask that every employer have an FEIN to improve the validity of their job post, who they are and what business they are in. We do this to protect our Talent users from false engagements and to eliminate fake posts. We have Talent that wants to work and is prepared to do great work for our Employers and the best way to connect them is to eliminate the noise.

Your pepelwerk dashboard acts as a reference hub for all Key Performance Indicators, associated to your job postings.

The process is easy.  First, you need to determine who your Admin User is. This person is going to give permissions for your company, authorize charges and manage all Job Managers who will be posting jobs for the company. Once you have that person picked, click sign up.

An Admin user is the key controller of who can represent the company on pepelwerk, give payment authorizations and who we talk to when there is news to share about your account.

A job manager is the person that manages a similar group of Talent. They can be the operations manager, front line manager, internal recruiter or the CEO. This person does not give permissions or speak for the company but what they can use services that the Admin chooses that add charges to the account.

During account creation, you will be asked to verify your e-mail address, using a temporary passcode that is delivered to your provided e-mail. If you do not see it in your Inbox or Spam/Junk folder, tap the “Resend Code” link, and we’ll send a new one to you. If you still do not have the e-mail with the passcode after selecting resend, Contact Us.

Educator

Coach

A coach is someone who has passion for coaching someone through the dilemma as of work-life decisions.

All pw coaches are required to have completed a coaching program from a reputable school prior to applying. We accept a variety of coaching practices.

pw Coaches work on their own schedule. Pepelwerk does not control when or where a coach takes sessions but we do have safety guidelines and conditions to keep both you and our Talent users out of harms way. Our Talent users want to schedule coaching on their time so, our coaches are not asked to keep a set schedule. The more flexible your availability, the more opportunity for you to receive more coaching sessions.

Yes. We recommend that you set your availability to your average week. You will receive every coaching appointment directly and have the ability to accept or decline.
