This repository is the starting point of the Gravity project with documentation and links to Gravity sub-projects.

Preface:

Our mission with this project is to help job seekers and employers to find each other, to boost innovation within the labor market and to create opportunities for all actors within the industry sector.

Arbetsförmedlingen has made the commitment to implement parts of the MyData principles within the JobTech MyData initiative.

Background:

The ‘JobTech-Gravity’ initiative is about creating a decentralised infrastructure that allows job-seekers to create and manage their CVs in one place and use it on all job sites and Talent Tracking Systems available in Sweden. The application will allow to import the User CV-data from where they are (initially Arbetsförmedlingen or personal file), store it in a PDS (Personal Data Storage) and share it to another destination services.

Arbetsförmedlingen, together with a partner within the private sector, has developed a generic, multi-purpose PoC (Proof of Concept) that enables individuals to store and control who has access to their data and which information they have access to.
