Trovix.com Asks: How Do You Stack Up in Today's Job Market?

New Facebook Application Calculates How Well Your Skills Match What Employers Are Looking For

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Trovix, Inc., a leading provider of employment products and services using intelligent search technologies, today introduced My Career Score™, an application built on Facebook® Platform that uses the same technology as Trovix.com to compare resumes with job openings and show job seekers how well their skills fit the marketplace. Much like a consumer credit score, My Career Score calculates how well a user's background and experience fulfills job market demands and reflects that degree of match in a numerical score.

"With a recession on everyone's mind, a lot of people want to know how marketable they are in today's job market," said Jeff Benrey, CEO and founder of Trovix. "My Career Score offers people a way to harness the power of social networking in their job hunt. Our new application on Facebook shows individuals how in demand they are, and then advertises this score to friends, potential employers, recruiters and their networks."

When added to their Facebook profile, My Career Score allows job seekers to simply upload their resume to discover their score. As with Trovix.com, Trovix's award-winning technology reads the resume and uses semantic search capabilities to show the best job openings for that user. The technology acts like a personal recruiter, quickly and efficiently evaluating a resume for experience and other key factors. It calculates a user's score by comparing their experience and education against millions of job requirements from across the web, presenting a snapshot of the individual's value within the employment market. The score can then be posted on the individual's profile page or kept private.

An additional feature is that after individuals upload their resume, My Career Score sends Facebook users suggested job matches based on their actual background. My Career Score provides important information for individuals whether they are actively seeking a job, or just want to keep on top of potentially better opportunities. In just a few minutes, professionals can discover their "job worth" and use it as a way to leverage themselves in the market.
