Jobfox- Get hunted!

Jobfox is the inspiration of Rob McGovern, who was the Founder and former Chairman and CEO of CareerBuilder.com.   As it claims,  Jobfox is a job matching site.  Recently, Jobfox is named a Red Herring 100 Award Finalist, as it's said to be leading the next wave of innovation.

To experienced, create your resume for free, Jobfox then will match you to the jobs- which I think it's something like Jobster, but Jobfox seems to be more professional and direct to the target, but without video resume, without social networking.  You can check sample profile here.

Instead, Jobfox help you to create a flash-based Experience Map, which recruiters may love- intuitionistic and convenient.  Recruiter and you can easily check your skills, education and working experiences.

My work type picture can make the employers know whether you are his target, both people type and task type.  As Jobfox describe:

Transformer - Transactor
Description: Transformers combine interpersonal sensitivity with powerful social networks and definite leadership impact. Transactors combine thoughtful analysis with the driven pursuit of goals. They enjoy challenges and can be relied upon to deliver results.

By well defining and branding yourself  in Jobfox, employers are happy to hunt you!  Save time.  However, Jobfox can't let you connect to employers, you don't know who will you contact.  What you do is only waiting... may flaw, but not a big problem.

I signed up for Jobfox and love the psychological test results -- that means I agree with them. Two problems. Answered a lot of questions but didn't have any idea how the data would be used. The spider web of my experience does not represent me at all and I have not taken the time to see if it can be fixed. Second, if I am correct, I get one resume. I now have an "addendum" section on my resume that a tailor for every job search to highlight skills and experience highlighted in the job spec.

Having said that the job boards and de-personalized resumes that recruiter send to companies cannot tell the story about me I tell in my blog and web site. Jobfox is a step in the right direction, more Enterprise 2.0.

I'd love to hear so much about jobfox from you. Yep, Jobfox is very ideal for people to be hunted. Therefore, you should present yourself, a lot of questions is certainly. However, I think if they can automatically detect from resume to make experience map.
