Comparably introduces career matching feature to take on LinkedIn

By : |November 21, 2016 0

Launched in March this year, Comparably provides compensation data for public and private companies. Unlike LinkedIn or Glassdoor, the startup sees anonymity as its USP and building on this key factor, it’s now expanding into career matching feature.

This means that the Santa Monica-based startup will now also help you find your dream job besides providing transparent compensation and culture insights around the workplace.

Comparably will be using a prospects matching process so that those looking for a job can submit themselves to companies they’re interested in and will receive a response only if there’s mutual interest. Importantly, you will always be anonymous that will keep you safe from prying eyes of your current employer.

Comparably isn’t a job listing portal. Once you provide your target job title, salary, location, industry etc, the platform will then provide you with a list of companies that have traditionally hired people in your field.

Based on your preference, then you can select a few and you’ll periodically receive email notifications about companies interested in meeting you. The selection has to be mutual and only when you answer to the prospective employer’s inquiry, will he find out who you are.

According to Venture Beat, the career matching offering was launched more than two weeks ago, and so far, more than 3,000 companies have been contacted by candidates.

With $6.5 million in funding from Crosslink Capital, Upfront Ventures, 500 Startups and others, Comparably was launched in March by Docstoc founder Jason Nazar, Yammer co-founder George Ishii, DebtMarket co-founder and former Docstoc chief operating officer Mike Sheridan, and InvestedIn cofounder Yadid Ramot. The startup is working to provide more industry transparency — originally around wages, but it has since moved into a culture and equity. It has now also expanded into reviews, similar to those you receive with Glassdoor and Blind.
