The job market is ever changing. Social media is the newest tool in the job seeker and recruiter toolbox. It is so much of a trend that it enticed me to build CareerCloud.com.
The mission of CareerCloud is to build social and mobile apps that help job seekers connect with employers.
Our first two products are geared towards the candidate side. First is our innovaive social resume system. It allows a job seeker (or anyone with multiple social media accounts) to combine all that data onto a single page…a “social resume”. The user can then use that page which is available via a unique URL to promote themself. We even created badges to share it online. Here’s mine:
The second product is a mobile app called “Hidden Jobs App”. I built in almost 2 years ago, just released version 2 a few months ago and now its a service of CareerCloud. We’ll be making more stand alone apps like this in the future. Get it for 99 cents in the app store.
Now some of you may be thinking that I no longer like the job board industry. Not true. I still own a small number of niche sites like JobsinSolarPower.com. Its just that social recruiting is here and its real and I want a piece of it!
CareerCloud is going to be a launching pad for all my new social tools and mobile apps. So stay tuned and get your free social resume today.
As an entrepreneur you always have to stay on top of your industry in order to take advantage of the trends shaping it. I have always been forward thinking when it come to online recruiting technology. Its a fun business and I’m good at it.
So my advice to you is keep experimenting and launching new products. You cant win if you dont play.
