6. GoodJob Software

GoodJob Software

Founded: 2019

Also honored in:

“What if finding the right job was easier?

It seems like there are only two ways to find a job these days: online job search sites and recruiting firms. When you’re on a job search site, you can access thousands of opportunities — but each one has its own application process and secret handshake. A recruiter can get you in the door and help you speak the language, but they really represent the company, not you. Either way, it’s not a great situation.

GoodJob was created to be the best of both worlds — access to countless exciting opportunities paired with an innovative digital assessment tool that was designed to help you connect with companies you’ll fit right in with.

Don’t just find a new job. Find the right job.”
