Every opportunity or talent is scored dynamically against you.
So if you’re looking for an opportunity you’ll see all the opportunities scored by FuScore, out of 100%.
If you’re looking at talent who have applied for your opportunity you’ll see them ranked by FuScore.
The score is a smart guide, a way of filtering, of telling you who you should look at first, who is better qualified for the opportunity or which opportunity is right for you.
Unlike social reach sites such as Klout, your FuScore changes according to each opportunity or applicant.
A FuScore is made of two parts; relevance and connections.
Relevance is your skillset, the keywords generated when you created your profile and which you can edit, and how closely they correspond with the skills required by the opportunity.
Connections is your social connectivity, ie how are you connected to the creator of the opportunity or the applicant? We look at a lot of different variables to define this.
If you’re looking at your opportunity feed, you can filter by the combined score (default) or by Relevance and Connections separately.
This should give you insight into the opportunity you’re looking at, together with insight into your skillset and relevance for this role.
I’ve been testing this for several months and the effect is unique. It starts to make you look at your professional self in a different way, internally I found myself analysing the scores, breaking them down, thinking how can I improve my chances? But more than that it also gave me insight into what I’m qualified for and which companies I’d be a good fit for. Thankfully WorkFu came out top!!!
I’ll save my bar room pop psychology on this for another post! For now simply enjoy all the free time you’ll have resulting from having every opportunity filtered uniquely for you!
