RiseSmart Unveils RiseSmart Spotlight™, the Fully Integrated Social Outplacement Platform for Displaced Employees
Sep 1 15
RiseSmart unveiled RiseSmart Spotlight, a cloud-based outplacement solution that combines one-on-one coaching from trained professionals with advanced technology to help transitioning employees pinpoint relevant job openings, network with professional contacts, develop and promote their personal brands and more – all in an integrated platform and supporting mobile app that fully leverage the power of social networks to facilitate finding a job. RiseSmart Spotlight replaces RiseSmart Transition Concierge as the company's outplacement solution and further differentiates the company from traditional brick-and-mortar outplacement providers. For transitioning workers, the RiseSmart Spotlight experience starts with SmartMatch™—a semantic matching engine that combs the Web for relevant jobs and intelligently ranks them based on participant profiles and preferences. When a user identifies a promising job opening, the Contact Discovery Engine kicks in, utilizing SmartMatch algorithms to identify the right contacts to reach out to at the targeted employer (along with available email and phone information). Contacts are integrated automatically from a variety of sources, such as email contact lists and social profiles – and includes both contacts the user already knows, as well as individuals they should know at their target opportunities.
Next, users work with RiseSmart's Personal Brand Builder to craft their "brand." This includes automatic cover letters, resume, and a personal value proposition generator that helps users develop unique and powerful messaging. Jobseekers who are uncomfortable or rusty with networking can use a variety of RiseSmart Spotlight messaging templates and talking points designed to make reaching out to contacts easier than ever – by email or phone. To help users gain the confidence they need to win their next job, RiseSmart Spotlight also features a comprehensive Coaching Center full of original and curated content for jobseekers. The benefits of RiseSmart Spotlight are further enhanced by a native mobile app available for both iOS and Android for on-the-go access to job search tools. RiseSmart backs its technology with a high-touch experience that includes one-on-one coaching, advice, and support. Every transitioning worker is assigned a dedicated team of three career transition experts who collaborate through an integrated Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool to meet the user's needs. Users are assigned an experienced Transition Coach, as well as a certified branding expert to provide custom resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profile recommendations, and a professional Job Concierge to provide hand-picked jobs.
