Wayup a Rival to LinkedIn


Here is an alternative to LinkedIn - https://www.wayup.com/

The goal for WayUp, says co-founder, Liz Wessel is to humanize the job search experience: “to get our users to look as impressive online as they are in person, we decided to rethink the professional profile completely.” Linkedin is professional, but too professional (cue candid headshot with suit coat and shiny white teeth). Facebook is casual, but too casual (cue 99 pictures of your cat, Yoda). And Wayup? Their goal is to bring to life the whole person: “As a video editor and a textile artist, I am always working on personal videos, side projects, and various collaborations to gain experience and expand my skills,” noted Athena Wheaton, a senior at Yale University.
