The Muse acquires Brand Amper to ‘amp’ up its insight into hiring companies

It’s hard to know what’s happening inside a company. Those best-places-to-work lists are helpful, but what’s great for one person might not be so great for another.

The Muse, a content-rich recruitment site whose growth depends on its ability to match job seekers and companies, knows well the challenge of getting the “full story.” Though it counts more than 500 companies as clients, and though it sends videographers into many of these companies’ offices in an attempt to capture their look and feel and fit, learning what these businesses are truly like — compared with the perception they project to the world — is challenging.

It has been until now, anyway. The Muse is hoping to tackle that problem with Brand Amper, a three-year-old Chicago-based startup whose tools enable companies to collect data like employee sentiment by inviting employees to tell stories, including through a Mad Libs-like web app.

The New Rules of Work: The Muse Co-Founders Kathryn Minshew and Alexandra Cavoulacos Rewrite the Job Search Playbook

You can get plenty of advice online about finding, applying for, and landing a job, and there is certainly no shortage of résumé-writing resources, interview tips, and follow-up strategies.

Job search sites will help cast a wide employment net, posting your résumé for thousands of businesses to see, and users can search a database of employers for job listings, applying to them with just a few clicks. Finding a job is partially transactional by nature, as you need employment, and a business evaluates whether it wants to pay you to be an employee.

But what if employment was approached from the standpoint of the individual’s needs? That is the question Kathryn Minshew and Alexandra Cavoulacos set out to answer when they created The Muse, a career site that enables users to align their passions, desires, and abilities with companies in need of employees.
