Among the startups you may not yet know of: Good.co (not to be confused with The Good Jobs or Goood Jobs). Good.co, in beta, asks people 15 questions in about three minutes about their “professional personality” and connects them to jobs that fit.
You then get a description of your “archetype” (mine’s on the left in the graphic) and can hook up with your LinkedIn profile to see jobs that might be a fit for you. On top of that, you can see how you fit into the culture of various companies.
If you want to try it, and you get a box that says “have an access code?” — try your email address with the code eregoodco.
Anyhow, among the many other new companies and developments in recent days:
- HireArt is a new way to screen people by looking at work samples.
- CrewRevu allows job candidates to generate a report of their social media activity to share with potential employers.
- Taskrabbit is going deeper into the temp business.
