Originally introduced in 2015, ValueMyCV has transformed the way thousands of users discover their worth and get paid more. Responding to recent research revealing the majority of UK employees feel unhappy with their pay packet, the company has taken it a step further, with an even more comprehensive ValueMyCV tool that:
Lets users know what their CV is worth, so they know what salary they deserve
Gets their CV battle-ready to land them the interview
Inspires users with new career recommendations from over 1 million live job ads
Adzuna co-founder, Doug Monro said, “Britain’s job market has a problem. Wages are growing slower than the cost of living, and the workforce that powers the UK is far from happy. Nearly two-thirds (60%) of us have felt stuck in a dead-end job, and a further 65% know they are being underpaid but don’t know how to get what they are worth. No wonder productivity is falling!”
“As well as helping users discover their value to employers, we’ve now included even more interactive elements, allowing candidates to modify their skills and experience, as well as setting their own career goals and helping them work towards these,” added Monro.
What’s new in ValueMyCV?
– Automatically suggests improvements to a user’s CV, and matches them to relevant jobs based on their skill profile.The improved ValueMyCV model has been built using machine learning
– The ability to review and edit the user’s skills to improve their marketability, and a unique Skillmatch score to show how well their transferable skills match potential careers.
By allowing users to check and edit the skills and personal information extracted from their CV, Adzuna has created a truly interactive tool which gives control to job searchers by helping them understand how their CV will be interpreted by industry-standard software used by recruiters.
The site was launched by the team behind Gumtree, Zoopla and Qype in 2011 have demonstrated impressive growth in the past 6 years, growing to more than 10 million monthly unique visitors, operating in 16 countries, and reaching profitability and with multi-million annual revenue. Adzuna is also soon to graduate from the Government’s prestigious Future Fifty Programme, has recently featured around the Capital with advertising on London’s buses, and has surpassed 5 million registered users.
Adzuna claims to already be the market leader in giving users transparency about UK employment data – the company shows salary data for thousands of keyword and location combinations on our site, provide the PM and press with labour market data, and offers its Jobsworth salary predictor against every ad with no salary.
Doug Monro concluded: “This extension to our already successful tool is a huge leap forward. We’ve taken the existing tech and applied it, naturally, to career progression. It’s something everyone wants to know – what’s their market value – and how can they improve that value? We help people get to where they want to be – and that’s something we can be pretty proud of!”
