RetireeCareers.com has launched a tool used by jobseekers to score and rank job listings based on requirements and benefits that make them ideal for the mature jobseeker. Using the Job Detective, jobseekers can by focusing in on high-scoring jobs, we believe that our jobseekers can focus on the most ideal jobs, and have the best chance of an outstanding second career

RetireeCareers.com, the leading online resource for mature jobseekers, today announced the launch of The Job Detective™, the first tool used by jobseekers to measure, score and rank potential jobs, as opposed to many tools used by employers to measure jobseekers.

"For years employers have been slicing and dicing the jobseeker market," said Jim Lane, president of RetireeCareers.com. "Our jobseekers tell us that they want a tool of their own to rank the employers and jobs. With the Job Detective™, they can focus on the jobs that have the requirements and benefits that make them ideal for the mature jobseeker."

For the past several months, the RetireeCareers.com editorial team has been analyzing subscriber input on the skills, benefits and job conditions that are of highest (and lowest) interest to mature jobseekers, and comparing those to the actual keywords and phrases used by employers in listing those jobs. The editorial team has developed, tested and implemented a tool that searches new job listings for specific keywords and phrases, and assigns both positive and negative scores for those matches, leading to an overall score for the job.

When searching for jobs on the RetireeCareers.com database, subscribers have access to the Job Detective™ score for that job. They are able to search for jobs, or organize results, on the basis of job score as well as other traditional search criteria such as occupation and location.

In addition, The Job Detective™ offers a benefit for employers who are looking for better ways to connect with the mature workforce. By analyzing their scores, they can construct listings with keywords that are of more significance to mature workers.

"Our goal," said Lane, "is to help 'level the playing field' for the mature jobseeker by giving them a quick way to focus on the jobs that are a good fit from the employer’s point of view, but also from the point of view of the mature jobseeker. By focusing in on high-scoring jobs, we believe that our jobseekers will find the time to focus on the best jobs, the best employers, and have the best chance of an outstanding second career."

RetireeCareers.com was launched in November 2003 as the first subscriber-supported job site serving the mature marketplace. The site currently features more than 45,000 jobs, all of which have been scored and ranked by the Job Detective™.
