A service that continuously encourages and guides job seekers to the right direction.
For employers Fuzu provides a set of sophisticated tools for identifying best matching candidates via powerful search and recruitment solutions and automated analysis of CV’s. The platform integrates online psychometric testing and talent profiling of candidates to the application process, thus making it easy to find candidates that best match with the requirements.
Fuzu is a mobile friendly service that can be accessed with all devices, from low-end handsets to smartphones, tablets and PC’s, via an Internet browser, and allows users to learn about different career options. Additionally, users will have access to more than 100 courses in various competence areas from basic work skills to topics such as entrepreneurship among others.
