High-Tech Gründerfonds, Neuhaus Partners and Hamburg FOR Mobile invest in 1000jobboersen.de

The most effective way to post job adverts to the internet. www.1000jobboersen.de offers companies direct access to more than 1000 job portals and social media channels to advertise their open positions.

1000jobboersen.de has developed a system for improving applicant response to online job advertisements. By measuring all of the online recruitment channels, the system is able to individually combine the various websites for each job advertisement, maximising the number of applications. Companies place their job advertisements on all suitable job boards quickly and easily by simply clicking on the suitable portal.

"This significantly improves the quality of the applicants. We post job advertisements not only on the large websites such as Monster and Stepstone, but also on suitable niche portals, university websites and even on social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter", explains founder Florian Behn. "Our motto is: 'The right recruitment portal for every vacancy'", adds co-founder Benjamin Pochhammer.
  
Florian Behn, Benjamin Pochhammer and Matthew Beedle are also the founders of CareerMee.com, an exclusive career portal for MBA graduates. The founding team further includes Annika Fleischer, Stephan Mehdorn (imdeo.de) and Florian Schiffer (Absolventa.de).

www.1000jobboersen.de  has been up and running for the past six months and already has hundreds of satisfied customers, ranging from start-ups to large companies. "The savings resulting from the lower price point available to us is of only secondary importance to companies. Most important to them is the quality of applicants", explains Schiffer, the team's designated HR social-media expert.

"We expect the job market to pick up again significantly and the war for talent to once again rage as it did in 2007. Targeted advertisement placement on niche portals makes particular sense when you're looking for specialists.” says Dr. Björn Momsen, Investment Manager at High-Tech Gründerfonds.

Neuhaus Partners find the team and concept equally compelling. Managing Partner Matthias Grychta: "What impressed us apart from the attractive market, innovative technical solution and to-date impressive sales figures, was the drive of the founding team."

The team is especially proud to have Hamburg FOR Mobile on board as investors. "The wealth of experience that these three serial entrepreneurs (handy.de and blau.de) bring to the table is priceless and we look forward to having many intensive strategy sessions with them", says Stephan Mehdorn.

1000jobboersen.de has already analyzed over 1000 recruitment portals, universities and social-media channels. A complete overview can be found at www.jobboersenfinder.de, the first overview of all German online recruitment portals.

"We're bringing transparency to the recruitment portal market and are noticing how satisfied our customers are with our consultation and performance. A good service that is also free of charge is readily recommended further. This is something we're experiencing", explains Annika Fleischer delightedly.
