The last few months have been a whirlwind and honestly, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends. Driven by my foundational urge to do help solve the pandemic employment crisis, our first product is just heading out the door.
It’s called Job Discovery – a free app to help job seekers and workers in transition get unstuck and realize just how many job opportunities are open to them.
It’s fair to call it a big data and data science app since it’s backed with a massive dataset, fancy algorithms and a unique approach to quickly provide job ideas to people once they take a basic inventory of their competencies.
It’s working well and providing a surprising level of serendipity in the job ideas it provides to the user.
But it does feel like we’re arriving at the starting line since we’ll be tweaking the algorithms and enhancing the core data for the foreseeable future. To help us do an even better job for an even greater number of individuals.
