San Francisco – December 5th, 2022 – Job.Guide, a job board aimed at unlocking the hidden job market, announced today that it has raised $2.5M in seed funding from angel investors in San Francisco.
Despite a large number of jobs being listed on sites such as LinkedIn, Indeed, and Monster, over 50% of available positions are not advertised online. This means that many individuals are at a disadvantage when searching for employment; they may be overlooked simply due to their lack of visibility or access to certain job postings.
Job.Guide aims to solve this problem by making these unadvertised positions more visible and accessible to those seeking them out. The platform is designed to bridge the gap between employers and potential candidates by providing an easy-to-use interface that allows employers to post their job openings and discover the perfect candidate for the position.
“We’re thrilled with the launch of our seed funding round which will help us reach our goal of revolutionizing the job search process by expanding our reach beyond just listed jobs and connecting people with meaningful work opportunities they may not have known existed before,” said Chief Sales Officer & Co-Founder Troy Allen.
“At Job Guide we understand that there is much more than meets the eye when it comes to finding a job – there are thousands of great companies out there looking for talent that don’t always make it onto traditional job boards or platforms – We plan on being the go-to destination for those seeking meaningful work that aligns with their interests and aspirations.”
Job.Guide was created out of a desire to make the job search process faster and easier for everyone. The platform provides users with tailored job recommendations based on their interests and qualifications, enabling them to discover jobs they would have otherwise been unable to find online or through traditional recruitment methods. Users can also explore open roles from top companies in their industry, as well as more niche opportunities from start-ups and other businesses with fewer resources for advertising roles publicly.
Recent statistics show that up to 50% of jobs are never published online, leaving millions of individuals unable to access these positions. Job.Guide is changing this trend by creating an innovative platform that connects job seekers with employers who are looking for qualified talent.
Job.Guide will use the seed funding to focus on building out its technology platform, as well as hiring more staff members in order to expand its reach into new markets worldwide. The company is currently headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, but plans to open offices in London over the coming months in order to better serve its international customer base.
Job seekers will be able to use Job.Guide’s platform free of charge while employers will be charged a fee for each successful hire they make through the service. The company has already signed up some prominent local businesses as customers, and is actively seeking additional partners across all industries worldwide in order to further grow its user base and revenue streams over time.
