Minnesota High Tech Association launches new ground-breaking talent system that connects employers and candidates using cutting-edge recruiting technology

February 23, 2017

Minneapolis, MN — The Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) has partnered with RealTime Talent to launch MHTA Talent Exchange, with a first of its kind technology solution that brings significant efficiency to finding and hiring employees by matching optimal candidates to jobs or internships, reducing potential turnover and overall hiring costs.

Talent attraction is a key challenge facing the employers of all sizes and types and MHTA is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art technology platform to stakeholders. The MHTA Talent Exchange uses sophisticated matching algorithms to connect employers to candidates based on skills, interests and requirements. Using correlated question-sets directed to both employers and candidates, the platform systematically aligns talent with opportunity.

“Connecting quality talent with open positions is a significant challenge for our members and the science and technology community broadly,” said Margaret Anderson Kelliher, President & CEO of the Minnesota High Tech Association. “The Minnesota High Tech Association is excited to provide them with a unique system to streamline the recruitment process.”

The MHTA Talent Exchange ensures that employers are connected to the most qualified applicants while candidates get matched to opportunities that best fit their unique profiles. Because the system provides unbiased, correlated matches, the playing field is leveled and candidates and employers are exposed to each other in ways that they historically would not have been. Consequently, MHTA Talent Exchange, which is powered by the WorkFountain platform, maximizes employers’ ability to reach a large and diverse candidate pool while ensuring equal access to opportunities for all candidates.

The Exchange expertly collects and reports on meaningful data analytics regarding employer needs, candidates’ career interests, and how they align with real-time market needs and trends. The Exchange is new to Minnesota, but is already in use by thousands of employers and tens of thousands of candidates from across the country, and is growing rapidly.
