CSU Startup Partners with Colorado Job Base

A new partnership between jobZology™ and Colorado Job Base provides one-stop shopping for Colorado job seekers looking to find not only a new job but also career and employment paths that fit.

jjobZology™, a Colorado State University spin-off company that provides software tools to match employees and employers based on job attributes and cultural fit, has partnered with Colorado Job Base to provide one-stop job and career assistance.

"By partnering with JobZology™, Colorado Job Base can now assist job seekers looking for Colorado employment as well as online career guidance," said Kris Erlewine, CEO and founder of Colorado Job Base. "jobZology’s™ consumer-facing VIP Career Guidance Portal will now be free of charge to Colorado Job Base’s channel of 10,000+ area professionals."

jobZology™ has licensed scientific technology developed by CSU psychology professors Bryan Dik and Kurt Kraiger that measures employee satisfaction and organizational culture, and helps companies use that data to improve their businesses and hiring practices. The technology was licensed through CSU Ventures, the commercialization arm of the university, and the company has office space in the Rocky Mountain Innosphere technology incubator in Fort Collins.

Offering the consumer-facing career counseling portal under the Colorado Job Base platform could dramatically help the Colorado job-seeking population.
"It's not enough to simply find that next job," said Eric Leftwich, jobZology™ co-founder and CSU alumnus. "We believe that finding the right place to be is the most critical thing. Understanding unique workplace drivers to happiness and job fulfillment is the key to innovation, engagement and longevity in the workplace."

Anyone can now create an account and complete the online jobZology™ VIP Career Assessment at no charge by simply by registering as a Colorado Job Base website subscriber.

"Being a CSU Ventures company, we wanted our focus for this type of relationship to be local and impactful in the community we live in," Leftwich said.
