Uvisor has launched a full-service career advice site that will offer job search tips and an automatic job matching tool.
The company was chosen to debut their site by VentureBeat yesterday at the DEMO Fall 2010 conference taking place in Silicon Valley.
Though there are a daunting number of job sites already in existence, Uvisor is confident that their expedited matching service will propel them above competitors. The site currently hosts around 630,000 positions and 950 professions.
Other features include:
- automated career matching based on your personality and skills, with a patent-pending algorithm
- résumé-building with support for multiple resumes and various formats, fonts and colors
- one-click résumé submission
- a relocation tool
- background data on employers
According to an article on VentureBeat, the company uses its own data along with LinkedIn to identify people at potentially attractive companies who are already in your network or ought to be in your network.
Company founders Bryan Jakovcic and Jamie Sawicki started Uvisor in October 2008, just as the recession was beginning. Upon graduating college, neither could find adequate tools to aid them in their job search. Like many successful entrepreneurs before them, Sawicki and Jakovcic realized that they could engineer what they couldn’t find on their own.
Now that the recession is fully underway, if not dissipating, Uvisor’s user base continues to climb. About 14.6 million people are still unemployed, which contributes to a cutthroat job market.
Uvisor currently has eight employees and is privately funded.
