SAUSALITO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Today, Vice President Joe Biden released a new report called Ready to Work: Job Driven Training and American Opportunity and recognizes Glassdoor and its newest job search tool Job Explorer. Launched earlier today, Job Explorer is designed to help job seekers map out their next job move and advance their careers.
In the Ready to Work report, Biden recommends mobilizing America's innovating companies to help create "upskilling" opportunities for American workers and employers. As such, he calls out Glassdoor as an example of a technology company that is committed to building new free tools to help job seekers better understand their options so they can make smarter investments of their time and resources.
"We've been delighted to cooperate with the White House to develop new tools to help connect job seekers with open jobs, and in making sure people have the information they need to make smart career choices," said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor. "We're honored to be recognized by Vice President Biden and are proud to provide our technology platform to help people find jobs that can help lower the unemployment rate and boost our nation's economy."
Job Explorer is the output of a challenge presented to Glassdoor's data and engineering teams to create a tool that could help people find jobs. The beta product was presented to Vice President Biden, Labor Secretary Perez and other key officials during a private brainstorming event at the White House last month. Days later while speaking at the National Governor's Conference, the Vice President went on to highlight Glassdoor as an "entrepreneurial company that has expanded on the traditional model of job posting websites."
The release of Biden's report coincided with President Obama signing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), in which Glassdoor CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman and general counsel Allyson Willoughby were in attendance.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S.
