FutureFit AI launches Career Copilot
A conversational experience for navigating your career
What is FutureFit AI?
FutureFit AI wants to be the “GPS” for workers’ careers. The company uses labor market data to help organizations better manage their internal talent and individuals better understand their career prospects. FutureFit AI, which announced a $4.5M funding round in May 2022, now partners with a number of Fortune 500 organizations and workforce development agencies to bring these services to frontline and unemployed workers, respectively.
What is Career Copilot?
FutureFit AI spent most of its first 3 years of operation becoming an industry leader in career guidance through an end-to-end technology platform that includes skills profiling, career exploration, reskilling, and job search.
Career Copilot is the company’s newest effort that offers an intelligent career assistant through a conversational experience, providing a more modular and scalable solution for customers and more accessible and personalized support for users:
Receive personalized career guidance in 50+ languages based on their background, skills, and interests, including motivational nudges and emotional support
Search and apply for jobs, including tailored support for each opportunity with job applications, resumes, and cover letters
Search for and enroll in educational programs and other career resources that are offered by the company or workforce agency
Why should we care?
We are in the midst of a global labor shift. The gig economy continues to grow, removing the stability and protections afforded by full-time jobs. At the same time, labor is pushing back - on college campuses, in Hollywood, and in Detroit.
FutureFit AI has spent the last 3 years demystifying labor market data, and turning that data into actionable insights. The company was already well-positioned to help both organizations and individuals navigate this rapidly changing labor market, and Career Copilot provides a simple (to the user) experience to access the company’s insights.
Does it use AI?
So happy you asked! It does indeed. Founded in 2020, FutureFit AI has been built from the ground up leveraging the latest and greatest AI models across their entire product suite. Career Copilot is no different. It uses chatGPT 3.5 as its base large language model (LLM), layering in the company’s proprietary datasets to provide a specific generative AI experience focused on career navigation.
How does Career Copilot enable FutureFit AI’s 5-year vision?
The FutureFit AI team believes that the concept of a “career” will continue to grow in complexity and that virtually all workers will need tools to support their personal growth. The team is excited by the possibilities that a domain-adapted generative AI experience can bring to this problem, helping every worker receive a previously unthinkable level of personalized service.
