The beauty industry-specific, e-portfolio, and recruitment startup Canvas Recruit are rebranding itself ahead of plans to further expand its focus on cosmetology students, professionals, and beauty businesses.
To coincide with the company’s new platform launch, July 1, 2020, it will now rebrand as CANVAS ME.
“While we launched Canvas Recruit to empower beauty professionals to find their full-time work home, we realized it’s about so much more than that. Canvas Me is about celebrating accomplishments, humanizing, learning and career enhancement – so much more than just recruitment, says Co-Founder & CEO, Jen Martinelli. [Continued] The Canvas Me portfolio will allow members to share their stories and form deeper connections with peers and potential employers. Members will create their portfolio to apply for opportunities that elevate their craft. They will create their portfolio to be seen, to be heard, and to live out their best career in beauty.”
Co-Founder Matt Martinelli says, “Jen and I don’t want beauty pros to create their portfolio just to get a job; they will create their portfolio to celebrate and honor their journey – whether its graduating cosmetology school, attending PBA Beacon, winning an award, or receiving a certification – beauty professionals deserve a platform to celebrate successes,” says Co-Founder Matt Martinelli.
The new name and platform redesign are directly linked to the ambitions of the Co-Founders to expand the company to “truly embody artists’ individuality, their achievements, and of course their life’s purpose in a beautiful digital way,” says Jen Martinelli.” Beyond the CANVAS ME e-portfolio functionality, the new platform will now include both cosmetology school and beauty business portfolios, as well as key multi-functional dashboards. In addition, career opportunity listings will include an applicant tracking system to streamline processes, save time, and save money for business owners.
