Founded in 2009 by Adrien Ledoux and Nicolas Lombard, JobTeaser.com is a jobsearch site focused on students or new graduates looking for internships or first-time job opportunities. They’ve just announced that they’ve closed a €3 million round, which was incidentally their first fundraising effort, with Seventure Partners.
What started out as a simple job listing site for students or new grads, has evolved into a comprehensive job search search platform, offering users extensive job listings as well as recruiter/company information, job hunting advice, videos around varying career tracks, and live events (eg conferences, chats with recruiters, etc). In order to reach their target users, JobTeaser is smartly integrated with intranets of all the top business and engineering schools/universities in France. Their strategy has paid-off well for them in recent years as they now have 140 enterprise partners and reached 200k subscribers in a 2014, a 150% jump over the previous year.
With the funds they’ve raised, they plan to double the size of their team and roll-out JobTeaser.com across Europe. The online recruiting space is notoriously active and competitive, so they’ll have their work cut out for them as they expand into new markets. However, focusing on the student and new grad population with a tailored service, should help them stand-out from the pack.
