FYnderFY is a combination of Find, Qualify and Quantify. At the highest level, our goal is to match and connect great companies (Recruiters), top talent (Candidates/Students/Professionals) and instructors (Educators) and provides a platform where these users can find, qualify and quantify each other.

FYnderFY is a powerful and disruptive professional credibility platform and value-added LinkedIn partner that connects top talent, companies, and educators. FYnderFY seamlessly connects LinkedIn users allowing Top Talent, Companies and Educators to interact with full objectivity and transparency.

We see both companies as visionary leaders in the space and tightly integrate and connect with LinkedIn. While we slightly overlap in terms of digital profiles and some similar functionality, that overlap allows top talent, or our candidates, to build, sync, improve and objectify their professional digital brand and professional credentials across the entire social and business network universe. Additionally, our platform provides recruiting and learning and testing functionality and tools that are a full compliment and value-add to LinkedIn.

We will become the world'€™s largest training and testing provider by providing a platform with tens of thousands of Micro-Courses, Micro-Course Bundles, Micro-Exams, Certifications and Badges. As we scale and add more certified training partners and providers, we will listen to our users and ensure we have a Micro-Course, Micro-Course Bundle, Micro-Exam, Certification and Badge for every subject imaginable.

Consider what Apple did for the music industry; they allowed users to buy individual songs from complete albums. We apply the same approach to the new world of continuous learning by teaming up with certified training partners and providers who take old and new training content and learning materials, mainly in the form of learning videos and PowerPoint presentations, and produce short courses and groups of courses for job-seekers. These courses are typically completed in less than 30 minutes so there is not a huge time commitment to take courses to learn new material or hone knowledge, skills and expertise. Many of our Micro-Courses are part of a series called Micro-Course Bundles.

For each Micro-Course you complete, there is a short Micro-Exam you can take to verify, qualify and quantify your knowledge, skills and or expertise on the subject. These scores help students and professionals build their FYnderFY ProfessionalCredibility Score, which is similar to a credit report, this allows students and professionals to quantify or score their knowledge, skills and expertise.

We team with many of our certified training partners and providers to create FYnderFY Certifications and Badges resulting from successfully completed Micro-Courses, Micro-Course Bundles and Micro-Exams.

We believe all FYnderFY users should be entitled to payments for providing content, data and support to make our platform better. We pay thousands of dollars of micro-payments, or fees/commissions, to recruiters, candidates and educators every month.
