LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Award-winning HR tech startup ThisWay and fellow category defining AI startup Maslo today announced a partnership to launch the first job-matching resource, WorkThisWay, with Maslo-powered Career Companion, offering empathetic, AI-enhanced emotional support in the form of everyday check ins, resume building, job search reminders and more to ensure millions feel supported during these unprecedented economic times. WorkThisWay is now available for job matching, and registrants will receive first access to Career Companion once available for download in mid-May.
WorkThisWay can be used by employers and job seekers to use on their phone or web browsers for free, in part thanks to a $100,000 contribution of cloud costs from Amazon Web Services. The technology analyzes registered job seekers' details and sources jobs for applicants from one of more than 3,000 ThisWay partners to identify the best job matches. Uniquely, users will also have the option to access the Career Companion app to receive support, tips and feedback that help navigate the job application process. Career Companion aids the social-emotional resilience and development of workers by giving users the ability to:
- Check in with voice journaling to share thoughts and feelings related to finding work
- Receive personalized advice, encouragement and feedback
- Track moods and notice thematic trends in job searches
- Connect users with a human coach for additional support
- Sort through applications to ensure the best candidates are not overlooked (for HR professionals and recruiters)
"Our companies have come together to reimagine the job application process through our emotive technology, rooted in data and not based on assumptions, so that people can feel less isolated with each interaction and find the right career opportunity for themselves with confidence," said Ross Ingram, CEO and cofounder of Maslo. "As people navigate the complexities of employment during COVID-19, we're proud to team up with ThisWay Global and support everyone in these unprecedented times through the power of empathetic computing."
