Press release from: TwentyPeople uses semantics to revolutionize personal

London, May 23, 2011 -, a new service built for individuals of all ages interested in getting started with personal benchmarking, is opening doors for early adopters this May to experience what job hunting could look like in the near future. The concept of TwentyPeople promises to get rid of lengthy CVs or hundreds of e-mails sent out to out-of-service e-mail leads. How would that work?

Companies hire people mostly based on the skills, knowledge and experience they have to offer - and, people would love to be hired for what they are good at and not whom's e-mail address they were able to guess or which gatekeeper they succeeded to bypass. TwentyPeople allows individuals to benchmark their skills and experience and match it real-time with current jobs available in many different markets.

The key concept of TwentyPeople is the semantic approach to define skills and knowledge. People are not asked to fill out long forms or fields, every single skill will be suggested to them based on their profile.

The company was launched early 2011 by a former Microsoft Corp. Product Planner who left software giant to revolutionize personal benchmarking and corporate recruiting with one simple idea. is a skill-based profiling service, enabling companies to find new hires and potential candidates through a defined set of required skills. It also allows individuals to analyze, benchmark and promote their often unique set of skills, find jobs based on their knowledge and experience or discover a path to a dream job at a specific company or industry through a dedicated matching/target algorithm.

Skills are summarized into professions and groups and allow companies to build new job profiles in a click-and-run procedure. Matching candidates appear instantly and results will be refined with every change in the job profile. This allows companies to discover talents based on their set of skills and experience, compared to the additional approach of scanning through hundreds of brushed-up resumes. will offer the service through a number of corporate plans and enable recruiters to focus on the best 1%, best 10% - local talent or people from a specific college or former company and more.

The service is free for all individual users offering and benchmarking their talent.
