About

Tired of your current job? In a tough situation and find yourself without a job currently? Want to explore what is out there for you? Ready to find your dream job in your ideal location? We in the JobUp team understand that changing careers and locations may not be as simple and straightforward as it seems. With 5.8 million job openings in the U.S. alone, it can be daunting to find jobs that you qualify for in a location that you want. According to a survey cited in Forbes magazine, 52.3% of Americans are currently not satisfied with their job. Furthermore, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the average time an average worker stays in his or her job is 4.4 years, but only 2.2 years for the youngest job seekers (those less than 30). So why not go beyond the average and find that job you will be satisfied with and stay in? Our app seamlessly integrates with LinkedIn to pull relevant information from your resume so that you can quickly apply to your dream job. Compared to competitors, our interactive and visually appealing app caters to your specific qualifications, skill sets, and interests to bring up a list of jobs fit for you. Our geo-location capabilities gives our app the unique ability to find your perfect job in your perfect location based on how you rate certain factors such as crime rate, local entertainment, and cost of living. In the future, we will fully integrate a level up system where you can find resources through services such as Lynda or Coursera as well as have video conferencing capabilities with mentors helping you to gain new skills that will help in landing your next dream job. Our app will benefit both businesses and potential employees in finding the perfect fit for them. Multiple studies have estimated that employee turn-over costs about 20% of that employee's annual salary. With 90% of Americans making $75,000 and below, that could cost companies up to $15,000 per employee to find a replacement. Our app could help companies save that time and money. In an time where job satisfaction is one of the most important factors, are you ready to step your job up?
