A lifeline for older workers.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 9, 2010
Career tools enable older job seekers to compete effectively in uncertain economic times.
With the latest jobs report showing an unemployment rate of almost 10%, it is clear that job seekers need to hone their skills before considering a career move or re-entering the job market. Two Silicon Valley companies, OurExperienceCounts.com and NimbleCat today announced a partnership that provides older job seekers with a unique suite of career tools and services which combines weekly webinars, workshops and forums with new resume improvement and job search tools.
"Thanks to the OEC team for developing this important toolset. Your website will make a profound difference for many. Not only is there value for over 40 job seekers, but candidates in their 20's and 30's can benefit as well. If you are a professional looking at 'what's next' in your career, I recommend you get started now." - Gretchen Sand, Senior Partner, Skyline Recruiting Corp. San Jose, CA.
Mike Cassidy of the San Jose Mercury News called OurExperienceCounts.com, "A lifeline for older workers."
NimbleCat complements these career evaluation and tutorial services with two indispensable items for anyone considering a career move - a real-time resume grading and improvement tool, and a job alert service providing significantly better-targeted job alerts than most major job boards.
The resume improvement tool is based on the NimbleCat score, a relevance metric that compares a resume or social profile with resumes of top performers in that profession and provides guidance on where the job seeker fits with respect to their peers. This relevance metric is also used to rank results returned by the NimbleCat people search engine.
NimbleCat aggregates over a million jobs each month and matches them to provide a daily short list for job seekers. These matched jobs are presented visually on a Google map which enables job seekers to evaluate job opportunities with respect to location, traffic and the availability of local services.
Many of the tools offered by these two companies are free for personal use. Both companies offer paid plans that are suitable for individuals as well as organizations. The partnership of OurExperienceCounts.com and NimbleCat raises the bar by providing career services and tools at a fraction of the price that they could purchase them elsewhere. This enables individuals to advance their own careers, and helps companies of any size to get displaced employees back into the workforce.
OurExperienceCounts.com is an online community dedicated to providing the tools and support necessary for mature, experienced workers to extend their careers or make a career transition. By providing tools specific to the needs of the experienced worker, we enable them to compete successfully in a job market that often chooses youth over experience. With proper guidance and support, candidates will be enabled to develop the personal marketing plan necessary to clearly define how experience and past successes translate into the talents potential employers are seeking.
NimbleCat is the best way to find and connect with professionals on the Internet and connect with them on social networks that they frequent. The company complements its search service with free career tools that are indispensable for anyone considering a career move. NimbleCat was founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to bring social search solutions to market for business people, employers and high value professionals.
