“We see this partnership as a validation of what we already knew; that Gooroo is a unique and valuable service that changes the way we identify opportunities, build our personal brand and make important career choices.”

Muller said Gooroo has also teamed up with leading training providers from around the world to connect members with courses to progress their careers based on a personalised skills analysis, used to identify their skills gaps.

“Our big data and artificial intelligence platform represents the future in how individuals will make decisions about what they want to do.

We’re unlocking potential and making the process more efficient for everyone.”

According to Muller, with 120 million tech professionals and over 25 million jobs posted every year, Gooroo is positioned for impressive growth.
