French start-up, My Job Glasses, has raised €5 million ($5.6 million) from Alliance Entreprendre as part of its second funding round. The company, founded in 2015 by Frédéric Voyer and Emilie Korchia, connects students with professionals to help them understand different careers and build a valuable network to find jobs.
As an EdTech and HR Tech hybrid, My Job Glasses provides students with access to a catalogue of over 48,000 professionals, 25% of which are international, from around 3,000 companies. Over 100,000 registered students can contact and meet with professionals who have agreed to be contacted. The platform averages 10,000 to 15,000 meetings per month, either in person or virtually, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The start-up, which is incubated at Station F, is investing heavily in technological solutions for talent management and transformation with the new funding. Its goal is to better understand the needs of young job seekers and help them build a network of mentors and professionals to guide them in their careers.
My Job Glasses aims to revolutionize youth recruitment by disrupting traditional recruitment methods and offering students a more personalized approach to career guidance. With its latest funding round, the start-up is poised to expand its reach and continue to innovate in the HR Tech space.
