Finding employment is about to get easier with Invisume, a job searching software and AZTC member. Charles Crawford, Invisume co-founder, believes his second company will revolutionize the market because employers will be the ones reaching out to potential employees.
“It’s a good example of a tech startup doing things right, surveying the market, and building something people need, not just another app that doesn’t get traction because the founders forgot to think about whether or not people would use it,” Crawford said.
Invisume, or the Invisible Resume, allows employees to privately search for new jobs in their fields. Users make a profile, but companies can only see their skill set. Companies then ask to contact the user, who can decide to make his personal information public.
Crawford and co-founders Chad Porter and Michael O’Brien created Invisume as they were trying to help Porter brainstorm ideas on how to recruit more employees. They then realized the current job searching process is flawed mainly because of fear for those who are already employed and want a career change.
“Most people are unhappy with their job and would search for a better job, but they fear their current employers will find out that they are searching for a job,” Crawford said.
Invisume is currently in beta testing and hundreds of users have created customized profiles. To find out more about Invisume, go to invisume.com.
