What can you use the app for?

WorkFu is a professional job search tool. Users can build a Smart Profile to display their background, interests, skills, academic achievements and anything else career-related. The Smart Profile also shows visitor how to access the user’s social network profiles as well as other intriguing items like reading lists. Businesses and organizations can post their available opportunities. WorkFu helps both sides come together to connect the right talent with the right position or situation. WorkFu applies a Fu Score to opportunities to show their relevance and connections. The user can determine which are the best for them and submit an application or start a discussion. Organizations and businesses are provided suggestions to see which WorkFu members have the skills they are looking for.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

WorkFu was founded in January of 2012 by Neil Kinnish, Pete Nelson, Mike Kus and Adam Martin. The application was intended to help professionals find opportunities. The application covers a lot of ground by offering listings for both jobs and freelance opportunities. WorkFu has turned a few heads with it eye-catching Smart Profiles and convenient search functionality. It has been mentioned on numerous websites, including The Next Web.

What are the differences to other apps?

WorkFu stands out because it takes job profiles to a new level. The application isn’t a basic listing of job openings. Users can find full time jobs and freelance opportunities under one virtual roof. The application also provides users with Smart Profiles. The Smart Profile looks far more inviting than most professional profile and lets the user reveal more of their personality and character through unique details.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

WorkFu’s design is one of its biggest assets. User are greeted by hints of bold color and a neutral background that create stunning depth. The entire experience stays highly professional while incorporating rich personality and charm. The Smart Profiles are very visually stimulating and make the visitor feel more like they are sitting in a living room with the candidate rather than reading a cold, lifeless list of achievements and skills.

How does the registration process work?

A new use can join the WorkFu community by clicking the blue “Sign Up/Sign In” button positioned in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. Doing so takes the user to the Twitter login area. The user must login to their Twitter account and give WorkFu access to register. The site does not offer an alternative sign in option at this time. Facebook, Google or LinkedIn login options would make the process much more convenient for user who do not frequent Twitter.

What does it cost to use the application?

WorkFu invites all professionals and employers to join its network for free. The site doesn’t charge anything for building a profile or submitting inquiries for job opportunities. Employers and organizations should note that the site may limit job and freelance opportunity posting initially. The user should visit the FAQ area to learn about submitting opportunities for consideration. Free access is an excellent way to convince more professionals and companies to try WorkFu.
