Web-Based Job Application SaaS for Youth Employment Programs

Digicon Corporation offers a mobile-friendly web application that allows youth-focused organizations to easily collect and process registrations to match youths to work experiences. Our Youth Employment System (YES) provides an automated method of matching youth in local communities to a variety of employment and educational opportunities and development programs.

This powerful software-as-a-service (SaaS) job application system lets you customize your matching criteria based on location, age, skill sets, career interests, language, and any other factors you desire, allowing you to weight factors based on importance. By automating the process and reducing required resources and user error, YES increases your program’s participation and success.

Benefits of Our Employer-Candidate Matching Software

How YES Benefits Schools and Youth Programs

When you run a youth-focused employment program, time is a precious commodity. So are your relationships with potential employers. Our software automates and streamlines the application process, allowing you to connect participants with more opportunities more quickly. It also helps you nurture employer relationships by making it easier for hiring companies to connect with qualified candidates. The Washington Post highlighted the success and value of Baltimore’s YouthWorks program, which has been using YES since 2011.

Other benefits of our youth recruiting and job application software include:

  • Employers can easily register and post job openings
  • Job candidates can easily register and submit job applications
  • Automated emails and text messages keep applicants aware of their application statuses
  • Employers can process job applications quickly to find the right candidates
  • Customizable reporting puts information at employers’ fingertips

YES Success Case Study

Digicon has been working with the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) on its YES-based YouthWorks system since 2011 when we developed a fully online-based solution to streamline, modernize, and generally improve its previously paper-based process. By automating the process of scaling servers with AWS, Digicon has also helped increase the YouthWorks program’s participation and success. Since we began supporting MOED to efficiently process its youth applications, the program has grown from processing a few thousand applications per season to 16,000 applications. As the program flourishes and enrollment numbers increase, the AWS system environment automatically scales up without any limitations on capacity or performance.

Partner Testimonial

In 2019, MOED IT Director Kevin McLamb wrote:

“We have worked closely with Digicon since 2013 to upgrade and simplify our online summer job registration process. They have been a tremendous partner in helping us to meet our goals.

Digicon has been responsive to our needs in developing a working system tailored to our program design—from the ability to send group text messages, to improving the matching system so that MOED can assign youth with the skills and interests that more closely match the needs of employers.

We will continue to work with Digicon and highly recommend their unique services to other local summer jobs programs.”
