Work experience
Jobcase, Inc.
President & CEO

What if you cherry-picked all of the Big Data learning, all the best job technology, & all the best engineering from a technology company that powers over 60 million job page views per month - and you completely dedicated all that to serving the jobseeker. That's Jobcase!

Jobcase launched in the 2009 recession when we took a team formerly focused on managing money to instead focus on web-based Big Data solutions serving American jobseekers. Jobcase technology powered many different job search sites over the years – some full service, some simple-search, some niche, etc. – all of which have generated a total registration membership to date of nearly 40 million Americans.

In January 2015, Jobcase reorganized to focus on serving this community directly via jobcase.com. Post re-organization, many of the sites powered by Jobcase technology since 2009 continue, but are now owned and housed in a separate legal entity. This enables the team at Jobcase Inc. to focus on community building, tool development and empowering our community as our primary focus.

Whenever you need help with your next gig - we are ON THE CASE!

Why the economy is still fragile

Watch the video Why the economy is still fragile on Yahoo Finance . We'll get updated numbers on the labor market tomorrow, and analysts are expecting to see slight improvements in the unemployment rate. But does this necessarily entail a strengthening economy? Fred Goff, Jobcase.com CEO, joins us to discuss.
