Bright.com Friends with Opportunities

By August 4, 2012

Follow me on:

Bright.comBright is a job search site that allows users to search for jobs, find connections at companies, and locate job openings that best fit their experience.

Users can search for jobs by keyword, job title, company, and location. They can also apply for positions through the site. Users can upload cover letters and resumes onto the site, or create a resume using Bright's resume builder.

Bright keeps track of users' complete and incomplete applications, helping organize their job searches. Users can also choose to receive emails reminding them of their saved job searches and alerting them to other site updates.

Bright Scores

Bright analyzes users' resumes to create a Bright Score for each job opening. This score, on a scale of 1-100, informs users how qualified they are for each position given their skills and experience. The higher the score, the better the fit. I checked it out and it works - it seemed relatively accurate, based on my interests.

Friends with Opportunities

Bright's new "Friends with Opportunities" tool allows job seekers to find job openings at companies where their friends and other connections work. Each user links his Facebook account to his Bright profile, and can then click on any friend to see a list of all the open positions at that friend's company. Users can also message friends through Bright to ask about job openings or to seek referrals. "Friends with Opportunities" allows users to take full advantage of their social networks.
