Why should I create a Talent Profile?

Because we are in the business of putting 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 Talent profile that can stay with you your entire working life. As your skills change and become more advanced, so does your earning potential.

Our tools are designed to keep the process simple and engaging. As we continue to grow, our Talent members will have exclusive access to benefits, perks, and social events.

Can I sign up as a Talent if I don´t have past work experience?

Absolutely! Our tools are beneficial for a broad range of experience levels, specially for someone without previous work experience.

We care about your potential, your transferable skills, and what you can do.

Companies Hiring who post jobs, internships, externships, and learn-on-the-job opportunities with us are focused on skills and abilities gained from both professional experiences as well as life experiences.

How do I upload my resume?

You don't need to upload a resume since we match you directly with opportunities based on your skills, not based on your work history.

However, you can attach one to your Talent profile, if you choose to do so.

The Talent profile can only be accessed via the mobile app, check if your device has the necessary program to upload documents.

Will länch assist in building my Talent profile?

Our Career Coaches will help. Schedule a coaching session for help with building and optimizing your Talent profile.

They can also help you land the perfect job, and get you on a path to live your ideal work-life.

To schedule a session, go to Coach Center on our mobile app.

For questions or general assistance, reach us through Chat or email us at info@pepelwerk.com.

Who has access to my Talent profile?

We takes personal data protection seriously.

Only Hiring Companies you match with can view your Talent profile, in addition to our operations team.

At no time, unless you give us permission, do we share your data outside of the our space. This is why advertisements are not part of our business model.

Is my Talent account information visible to the public?

No. Your account information and your profile are not accessible to the public.

Your Talent profile can only be viewed by the Hiring Companies you match with.

How is länch different from conventional job search platforms?

Direct matching based on your skills, not your resume.

We match you with jobs you can do today and prepare you for the work of tomorrow.

We don’t want you to be seen for your ability to write a resume and try to out-smart word matching algorithms. Resumes only demonstrate what opportunities you already had access to - education, job history, etc.

We want to know more about your skills, abilities, and interest to match you with real jobs that meet your financial, lifestyle, and work-life goals.

After you complete your Talent profile in the app, you will not be able to 'apply' for jobs, you will only be presented with jobs you actually have a chance to get hired for.

There are no search options, no games, no filters, or paid advertisements.

What is career coaching?

Career coaching is a partnership that encourages a person to move forward and towards their career 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, priorities, dreams, and aspirations. Our coaching sessions will help you figure this out.

Coaching is not the fad phrase 'work-life balance,' it is 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.

Talent members have different access to coaching services based on their membership type.

What is the Real World of Work Program?

The Real World of Work program is an exclusive länch program powered by pepelwerk that prepares young adults, ages 16-26, to transition into the working world by helping them discover and develop their skills and passion, getting them connected to the job market through a paid internship, and providing an affordable way to connect their education to real-time jobs.

The program lasts anywhere between 3 - 6 months, depending on individual progress.

If you are ready to start making informed and practical decisions about work and education while strategically aligning those decisions to your life goals, then register here.

What are skills?

Simply put, skills are things that we can do.

We learn them through life, school, and work. We gain many skills from our day-to-day that most people don't even realize or recognize their value in the job market.

Life skills are things you learn from your surroundings. Soft skills involve your social and people skills. Hard skills are the things you actively had to seek out to learn.

Many people confuse attributes and personality with their skills. Attributes and personality are who you are. Skills are the things you can do.

When building your Talent profile to match with jobs successfully, list the skills that make you unique or make the job you seek unique. Only list those skills you want to use in your next job, otherwise, you may not get the right match.

As best practice think 'quality' of skills over quantity.

If you need advice on how to build your Talent profile and how to optimize it to get the best matches, schedule a coaching session with one of our Career Coaches. In our mobile app, go to the Coach Center to schedule your session.

Can I find jobs that will work around my schedule?

Yes. We connect you with job opportunities that fit within your schedule.

We want our Talent members to maximize their earning potential. One of the ways we help with this is by connecting you directly with work that is available when you are.

Go to Account Settings and select Work Availability to make changes.

Select: open, or shift, start date, work location (remote, onsite, hybrid), and relocation preferences.

Where are the work and intership opportunities?

Work and internships are available anywhere our U.S. based Hiring Companies post their opportunities.

This may include opportunities in countries outside of the United States.

Talent will only see work opportunities where they have valid employment authorization or citizenship.

To make changes to your work authorization go to Account Setting and select Authorized Countries.

Can I search for open positions posted by companies looking to hire?

No. Scrolling through endless job listings, which usually end up being a waste of your time, is not our thing.

We want to connect you with the Hiring Companies you will have the most success with.

We do the search and hustle for you!

Once you receive a job match or invitation to apply, swipe right to accept or left to pass.

Does länch check references?

We do not check references when you create your Talent profile.

But, please do not try to fake it until you make it. The truth will eventually come to light during the process. Deceit will only end up hurting your personal brand and work reputation.

Once you match with an opportunity, the Hiring Company will likely require you to participate in company-specific screening procedures.

What is a work persona?

Your work persona is what you are known for at work. It is how you represent yourself.

How to unsubcribe from our emails or the App?

We are sad to see you go!

However, if you must and are struggling to do it, we broke it down for you.

Our app notification emails and marketing emails have separate ways to opt-out from.

If you downloaded the app and created a Talent profile, then you will receive job match and educator match notifications in your email inbox.

If you no longer want to receive app emails and no longer wish to use our services, you will have to deactivate your account in Account Settings.

All marketing emails separate from the app can be opted-out of at the bottom of each email.
