Amavitae Corp. has announced the launch of its career advancement platform for iOS and Android, the only solution that directs job-seekers to careers they will love, provides pathways to education and training, and reveals the most sought after skills for each occupation.

The founding team say that Amavitae reimagines a proven assessment methodology and transformed it into an entertaining, engaging mobile-first platform that is free to the user.

The platform applies a scientific analysis through a unique interactive assessment to help users determine what they might love to do and learn the skills needed to advance in their field.

Candidates get a personalized report with user-centered insights, career recommendations and descriptions, a summary of the 25 most in demand skills for each career, localized jobs and also localized education and training opportunities.

Deborah Ramo, Amavitae founder and CEO, said “Amavitae’s mission is to help bridge the skills and opportunity gaps by providing students and job seekers the information they need about the careers they want, while helping employers find candidates that align with their job openings.

“Younger workers don’t have the information they need to pursue careers they’ll thrive in. They are using a decades-old occupational survey to get outdated career recommendations, and training for jobs that won’t exist in the near future [while] employers are facing large turnover with entry-level employees that aren’t engaged in their jobs.”

Amavitae provides a platform designed for companies to develop and advance their existing workforce and in turn increase productivity, retention and fit.

“Amavitae embodies our people first culture and commitment to supporting people to find a career they’ll love,” said Carey Goldberg, the global learning and development officer for Marriott International, the platform’s initial founding partner.

“It’s a hyper relevant career planning tool that will help candidates find the jobs that best fit their passions and skills. For our associates, Amavitae provides a unique platform to identify career paths and advancement opportunities. It’s a recipe for retention.”
