Searching for a Job Just Got More Personal With ApplyApp.ly From Careerimp, Inc.

New Personalized Job Search Experience Launches at DEMO, Finds Opportunities Based on Personality Type, Past Experience and Skills

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2012) - Launching today at DEMO Spring 2012 is ApplyApp.ly, a new job search tool that uses your experience to tailor job search results to show the positions for which you're best suited. Created by Careerimp, Inc., ApplyApp.ly analyzes information provided by the job seeker -- either through connecting to their LinkedIn profile or copying and pasting their resume or other documents -- and semantically compares it against job descriptions sourced from job boards and directly posted by employers, and then provides job seekers personalized job matches.

"The list of available jobs generated by job search engines is primitive," said Mona Abdel-Halim, co-Founder at Careerimp. "Job seekers can put in the position and location they are interested in, but it doesn't really provide them with a list of the most relevant jobs. For one, titles are worded differently across organizations. Second, they may not know exactly what they are best suited for -- for instance, a Project Manager at a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company requires many different skills from a Project Manager at a VC-backed tech startup."

Apart from skills and experience, it also assesses positions based on the user's Myers-Briggs® personality type, which helps to determine if they will be satisfied in the position. Not only does this lead to a more diverse pool and better ranking of opportunities, but it also allows job seekers to optimize their efforts when applying for a new position.

"Today's workforce is less specialized; we change jobs more often and weigh job satisfaction more heavily than ever before," said Chris Mackey, Director of Business Development at CPP Inc. (exclusive publishers of the Myers-Briggs® assessment). "Companies are reacting by investing more heavily in ways to source more compatible, quality hires and retain them which ApplyApp.ly helps in doing automatically."

ApplyApp.ly launches today at DEMO Spring 2012, the launchpad for emerging technology and trends.

"ApplyApp.ly's new job searching technology has the ability to change the application process not only for candidates, but also for employers," said Matt Marshall, executive producer of DEMO. "We're very interested in how Careerimp's semantic technology can change the job search process and are excited to have them launch this new product at DEMO."

Once a job seeker finds a position of interest on ApplyApp.ly, they can use Careerimp's pre-existing service, Resunate, to convert their qualifications into a resume and receive objective feedback to improve their resume for the job before applying to it.

ApplyApp.ly is launching with job postings from the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City and Pittsburgh, PA. Employers can add their openings to ApplyApp.ly or find out how to white label the job board for internal openings by going to employers.applyapp.ly.
