WOODBRIDGE, N.J., Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The quality of candidates is a central concern for employers. Data analytics company Acxiom recently reported that over 80% of resumes contain misinformation or inaccuracies. On the flip-side of that problem, job-seekers, especially early stage seekers, are uncertain of how to represent their skills to employers and how to match to open jobs where they might be qualified.

Already helping thousands of members match to jobs, Purzue, a free service, addresses these concerns by combining the best features of online profiles and eportfolios into a dynamic, "smart" resume. "We solve the problem by first focusing on improving the quality of the resume," said Evan Nisonson, Board Member. "Our new release will help job-seekers match to employers, and help the workforce source quality talent – one of the biggest economic problems we face. Early stage job-seekers, ages 16-24, are most at risk. They're concerned with where to start and often get lost along the way."
Innovative Feature Enables Job-Seekers to Verify Skills, Experience; Reduces Risks For Employers
Purzue helps job-seekers by offering building tips and ways to better represent their achievements – academic, professional, or experiential. The result: a higher quality resume that translates well for employers, recruiters, and HR Directors. One feature that sets Purzue apart is the aspect of authenticity: Purzue enables job-seekers to verify their skills and achievements. These verifications get locked into the resume thereby improving recruiting at the front end. Already employers are taking notice, with some of them directing their job candidates to use Purzue's resume service – Amtrak and Fresh Market being two of them.
"We're like eHarmony meets Kayak.com for job-seekers," Nisonson said. "A unique matching algorithm plus partnerships with the largest job boards in the industry translate to a better experience for job-seeker and employer alike. We are excited to see how we can make an impact on getting people hired."
