Today, the company released a product called the Job Readiness Evaluator, a survey which asks a job hunter about his or her existing personal networks, habits, and preparation skills in a series of pointed questions. The result is a numerical score -- we love hard numbers here at Pink Slipped -- that tells the UpMo user (or UpMover) how ready he is to embark on a successful search. Mr. or Ms. UpMover gets a personalized plan of action based on the survey answers. Not only that, UpMo (figuratively) doles out to each respondent his or her own UpModel, or as UpMo puts it, a real-life top-tier business professional "with successful habits (and) an effective networking style … to help model their own success." (By the way, I was assigned Steve Case, co-founder and former CEO of AOL, in my practice run.)
For the next couple of months or so, the Job Readiness Evaluator is free, as is much of the rest of UpMo's domain. Check it out!
