Alumni Association of the University of Michigan has one of the largest alumni bases in the world.

“After piloting Fridayd with a small group of U-M alumni and hearing about the positive engagement they had with the Fridayd service, it was an obvious choice for us to offer Fridayd to all University of Michigan alumni.

Fridayd, LLC, a provider of advanced technology and services that are transforming online job search, application and tracking for job seekers, announces a partnership with the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan (Alumni Association) to provide increased job search benefits for alumni.

Having one of the largest alumni bases in the world, part of the Alumni Association’s mission is to offer professional and career development to its members. Now in addition to the Alumni Association’s services, such as resume and cover letter review, interview prep, preferred career coaching, career assessment, and more, the Alumni Association, through its partnership with Fridayd, is providing an innovative and more powerful employment search solution that goes beyond what typical job search and aggregation boards deliver. Fridayd optimizes and accelerates the job search so users can land their dream job faster.

With Fridayd, job seekers receive not only highly relevant matches for their job search criteria that are adaptive and continuously refined over time. They also get relief from the tedious, tactical burdens of a job search. Fridayd is the employment seeker’s virtual assistant, applying to jobs, monitoring progress and tracking job search processes all in one place for the user. Additionally, job seekers don’t go it alone in their search. Fridayd users may choose to have a dedicated specialist support them through the job search experience.

“We founded Fridayd because we saw that the job search industry was broken and hadn’t evolved beyond aggregated job boards that emerged over a decade ago,” said Carlos Paz, CEO and founder of Fridayd. “Traditional approaches of serving up recommended job results do not live up to the job seeker’s expectations, and the job seeker is left to do the brunt of the work including the time-consuming labor of applying to jobs, which often requires monotonous and repetitive uploading of resumes, completion of applications and forms and trying to track efforts across multiple job boards. We’ve fixed that and are excited that University of Michigan alumni will be able to boost their job search productivity while decreasing effort and time.”

On average, Fridayd saves job seekers 40 hours a month, equal to an entire workweek of time. That’s time those seeking new employment can use to focus more on interview preparation and networking, although Friday’s also assists with the latter by providing networking recommendations that can help applicants get a foot in the door at targeted companies to which they have applied.

“After piloting Fridayd with a small group of U-M alumni and hearing about the positive engagement they had with the Fridayd service, it was an obvious choice for us to offer Fridayd to all University of Michigan alumni. We are excited for active or passive job seekers to have access to Fridayd when navigating their job searches in today’s complex world of work,” said Amy Homkes-Hayes, Manager of Career and Professional Development at the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan.
