CareerCo™ Matches Workers with Employers; New Trailways Affiliated Partner


Fairfax, VA – April 26, 2016—CareerCo™, a company that connects people with job openings, educational and training opportunities fitting their career interests, has become an affiliated partner of Trailways Transportation System, Inc. (Trailways).

“Drivers are the faces of Trailways that our passengers see most often, but our Trailways stockholder companies actually have a wide variety of jobs to fill in the office, in the garage as well as on the road,” said Trailways Chairman, Ron Moore (Burlington Trailways). “We welcome CareerCo™ as a matchmaker connecting motivated individuals who can meet our high standards with fulfilling careers within Team Trailways.”

To fulfill its matchmaking role, CareerCo™ combines the expertise of its more than 700 career advisors with its membership database of more than 43 million individuals, plus its proprietary “CareerMAP” technology, the power of the Internet and the immediacy of mobile communication devices.

Formed by the 2014 merger of The Employment Network (TEN) and The CollegeBound Network (CBN), CareerCo™ operates a portfolio of Websites including FindTheRightJob.com, JobHub.com, CollegeBound.net, MyEducation.com and CollegeSurfing.com, among others.

The company’s physical presence extends from its headquarters in New York City to two office buildings in Staten Island and one in Tempe, AZ.

“Our mission is to connect people with opportunities in education, training and jobs, empowering them to achieve their life goals,” said Kristy Fallon, Chief Business Development Officer at Career Co™. “We provide the most efficient and cost-effective recruitment solutions for employers, educators and training programs to identify and to secure qualified applicants.”

Employers post job openings with CareerCo™ free of charge, then pay per applicant. They can use CareerCo™ to promote training and business opportunities as well. “This performance-based, recruitment advertising has several advantages,” said James Fontana, a CareerCo™ account executive. “Employers can begin a campaign on a limited budget, controlling the number of applications they receive. They can observe the campaign’s effectiveness on a daily or even real-time basis, enabling them to optimize their targeting and messaging. They pay only when their recruitment ad placements result in a measurable action such as a completed application.”

Meanwhile, CareerCo™’s patented CareerMAP system of predictive modeling, algorithms and analytics matches CareerCo™ members with job postings that fit not only their educational background, experience, skills, geographic preferences, desired salary and desired career path but also personal attributes including their interests, values, motivations and aptitudes.  CareerMAP finds matches by sorting through member profiles prepared in advance via a combination of phone assessments conducted by CareerCo™’s career advisors and online assessments.

CareerCo™ then sends “job alert” messages, which it calls “woofs,” to members who match a particular posting. These may be in the form of a text message, an e-mail, a push notification or a phone call from a CareerCo™ advisor. So notified anywhere, at any time, a CareerCo™ member can apply for the job opening immediately by pushing one button on a smartphone or other mobile communication device.

Members may browse the CareerCo™ database of job postings independently of these “job alerts” as well.

“CareerCo™ lets you know about the right job fast!” Fontana said. “We can also help you with the right training, certification or degree program guidance to make you more marketable. Our services are designed to help you make decisions and to identify opportunities at all stages and transitions over the course of a career.”

CareerCo™’s career advisors are available five days a week, 18 hours per day, for phone consultations with job seekers. The company also provides information about education and employment trends, career tips and other resources in its blog at www.careerco.com, in an e-newsletter, plus on its Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
