Entelo Aims to Replace Your Resume
Given that this is an election year, everyone is talking about how to create jobs. One of the things that most people need in order to get a job is a resume. With LinkedIn and other services the traditional may be going the way of the dinosaur. Another company that would like to hasten that process is Entelo. Entelo has been around for about a year, but officially launched yesterday with an undisclosed amount of funding from Battery Ventures and Menlo Ventures.
Entelo aggregates public data from a variety of online sources that might do a better job of displaying high-tech skills than a resume ever could. Entelo founder says that companies spend a lot of energy on candidates who don’t respond to their InMails or other messages, and Entelo helps whittle the pool down.
Recruiters can search those profiles and filter by skills, education or a number of other factors, but the real beauty of Entelo is that it predicts for clients when the best talent might actually be willing to come work for them. Entelo has more than 40 paying customers, including Box.net, LookOut, Kontagent and LevelUp.
