My Job Glasses (Graduate Program, formerly HEC) has raised €5 million in a Series A round led by Alliance Entreprendre with participation from existing investors Alyan Group and the family offices of Jean-Marc Bouchet and Xavier Niel. With this raise, the startup has amassed €6,5 million in total funding within the past two years.
“With Emilie Korchia, my co-founder, we wish to invest massively in technology solutions for talent management and transformation to respond to our clients’ challenges today and in the long term. We are not just another matching algorithm. The goal of our platform is to put people back at the heart of recruitment and career counseling by deploying a solution that bridges the student and professional worlds more effectively than job boards and online forums do.” explains Frédéric Voyer, co-founder of My Job Glasses.
Today, the platform allows over 100,000 students to freely connect with professionals in a database of over 48,000 people from 3,000 different companies, 25% of which are international. In other words, students and young graduates are able to reach out and meet with professionals that have agreed to be contacted. Their system allows students to learn more about the jobs in which they’re interested and to find what suits them best. It also prepares them for the job world by providing special soft skills training on how to network and how to have successful meetings.
From a company perspective, My Job Glasses enables teams to actively seek out talents and to develop their employer branding. It allows them to develop qualitative talent pools for short, mid, and long term recruitment. MyJobGlasses has already convinced companies like L’Oréal, Société Générale, and Saint-Gobain to join their platform. Once onboarded, companies get help in launching ambassador programs and gain access to a diverse talent pool.
