Many companies have sprung up in recent years to match job seekers with employers. One of the most recent is TruYuu, which was launched last November.

TruYuu’s motto: “You are more than just a resume.” The matching process is based not only on resumes, but also on job seekers’ values, talents, leadership style, and people skills. As part of this process, TruYuu members take a personality questionnaire, which was developed by talent-assessment company SHL.

Dallas-based TruYuu has partnered with many employers, including Bank of America, JCPenney, Zappos, RAPP, tpn and The employers are hiring for a wide variety of jobs nationwide, according to Calli Tapler, director at TruYuu. The jobs are in areas such as finance, marketing, human resources, retail, sales and hospitality.

TruYuu membership includes several free services:

  • Job matching. TruYuu suggests candidates to employers seeking to fill job openings. The hiring manager sees a list of anonymized candidates drawn from TruYuu’s talent pool. The candidates are ranked from highest fit to lowest fit, using a percentage. The hiring manager then can review the list and invite candidates to connect.
  • “TruFits,” which are job listings tailored specifically to the job seeker’s strengths. TruYuu suggests opportunities to pursue based on experience and talents. The company sends out a list of these jobs each week, and job seekers can decide whether to apply.
  • An infographic that summarizes talents and values. The results of the personality questionnaire are displayed in a summary infographic known as the TruMee. Members can share this on LinkedIn, Facebook or other websites.

In addition, members have access to in-depth reports, which provide insights into their talents and values. These reports are the detailed version of what is represented in the TruMee. Normally, members can download these reports for $20. However, readers of Revive My Career can download their results for free if they use a special referral code. (This code expires May 31.)

The referral code is: TY1RMC

So as you try to find the career opportunity that best suits your talents and values, be sure to look into all the resources that can help you — including TruYuu.
