Dedicated To Empowering America’s Workforce CEO Jeff Goff from JobcaseToday we welcome Fred Goff, CEO and Founder of www.Jobcase.com Jobcase is the only social media platform dedicated to empowering America’s workforce.
As a growing, work-related community of over 58 million members, Jobcase provides a place to ask questions, get work advice and find opportunity. Comscore now ranks Jobcase Inc. 6th in the nation for career service traffic at present.
Fred is the founder of Jobcase. His career started in the financial industry, where he managed over a billion dollars for BankBoston, and went on to start an artificial intelligence-based hedge fund. He closed the fund before the economic downturn, and redirected the firm’s core competency in data science to building a company in career-based online media. After gaining an intimate understanding of online career services, Fred and team discovered that a very large percentage of Americans (60% +) are underserved by traditional online job boards due to biases in career-track, job role, or education.
Thus, Jobcase was born – with a mission to empower all workers regardless of their background. With the help of data-driven processes,
Jobcase aims to connect the right people at the right time, giving members the tools and support to discover their best working life.
In Jobcase’s infancy, Fred wanted to ensure that the company was able to advocate for job seekers, both on its social media site and on the ground in local communities.

It’s no secret that being praised often makes people feel good.
Pride, pleasure and increased feelings of self-esteem are all common reactions to being paid a compliment or receiving positive feedback.
This is because being praised triggers the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the reward and pleasure centres of the brain. As well as making us feel good, dopamine can also contribute to innovative thinking and creative problem-solving at work.
