Under the alliance, Gooroo’s service, which the company says is already used by thousands of tech professionals around the world, will be made available free for 12 months to Microsoft’s Certified Professional community to assist them in building ‘richer’ tech careers.
“Millions of Microsoft professionals will get free access to our premium level tools, and will receive special recognition of their MCP and MVP status on the Gooroo platform,” says Gooroo CEO and Founder Greg Muller.
“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.”
“Gooroo’s job matching capabilities are super impressive and will mean that our community will be well supported in how they identify the opportunities they want,” says Thomas.
“Gooroo’s analytics platform also helps our community make important decisions about the right career pathways and training for them based on their individual skills and ambitions.”
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 use the information we collect and analyse to help developers, engineers and analysts make informed decisions regarding their career direction, and then personalise their experience through a skills analysis to match them to courses and jobs that suit their skills, experiences and preferences. We’re unlocking potential and making the process more efficient for everyone.”
Muller says Gooroo has grown substantially, largely through word of mouth, since launching in early 2015 and is currently free for all users.
According to Muller, with 120 million tech professionals and over 25 million jobs posted every year, Gooroo is positioned for impressive growth.
