Careerimp Launches ApplyApp.ly

By   /  April 23, 2012  /  No Comments

Careerimp has created a new semantically-powered service to help job seekers find positions that match their unique personality.

Careerimp has created a new semantically-powered service to help job seekers find positions that match their unique personality. Sarah Mitroff of VentureBeat reports, “Careerimp figured out that job hunting is hard and launched ApplyApp.ly, a job search tool that matches you with job postings based on your Myers-Briggs personality type and your LinkedIn profile. You probably remember the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator from freshman psych in college. The assessment was designed to pinpoint your attitudes, functions, and lifestyle… ApplyApp.ly hopes that by using a psychological metric to find job matches, people will weed out irrelevant jobs from their hunt.”

Mitroff continues, “When you land the company’s website, it asks for your location and your four letter Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. ApplyApp.ly also performs semantic analysis on your LinkedIn profile to help find jobs (on other internet job search sites) that match your experience. That’s a better approach than keyword searches, the company claims.”

She adds, “The company is betting on its semantic search to create a more rewarding job search. You can upload a resume and the service will search listings that match the skills you claim to have. Each job posting will have a percentage score next to it, from zero to 100, that shows how close of a match the job is for your aptitudes.”
