Our story began with our own experience when we were trying to familiarize ourselves with the opportunities and companies in the labor market. As we attended just about every career fair and browsed through endless career sites, we began to notice a pattern. Every time we came across the same (usually large) companies and on our social media platforms we only came into contact with companies we already were familiar with.
In addition to coming across the same companies time and time again, many of the career sites looked very similar; simply a collection of job listings as opposed to a place where one can effectively browse and get to know new companies. Although social media allows you to follow companies, it doesn’t give you an idea as to how you compare to other people looking to join the labor market. All these things together almost make it more about who you know instead of what you know.
With the feeling that the key to a more successful and efficient recruitment process was both necessary and possible, we launched Magnet.me in September 2012. From this moment on we slowly but surely started building our company from our 16 square meter office in order to make improvements to the (campus) recruitment process. Within three weeks after launching the website the first user had found a job that she otherwise wouldn’t have found demonstrating that Magnet.me really works!
From the moment we started our users have been our number one priority. What this means for us as a company is that we never send mass mails to our users because we feel that it is the users who should determine with whom they come into contact. This also means that there is no financial barrier between the employer and applicant by asking for payment for posting a vacancy or to send a message.
The story of Magnet.me is not only one of positive experiences. Although many accomplishments have been made such as winning an innovation prize, achieving several milestones, and being featured in national media, there have also been hardships.
Definitely the most devastating experience was the loss of our co-founder, partner, but first and foremost our friend Hugo de Ruiter on May 10, 2012. Hugo was a talented, handsome, cool and ambitious guy, a real entrepreneur and probably one of the nicest guys you would have ever met. He tragically passed away after being involved in a car crash while we were about to launch the website that day, at the age of 23.
After the devastation and anger we had about his passing away, the realisation came that we had to bring succes to the mission we had together, for which he worked so tirelessly and passionately.
One of the things that we learned is that there is only one way to change a small part of the world: by creating an amazing product and doing so with an awesome team. When you combine this with a ridiculously high amount of passion and an unbreakable drive to make an impact, the result is that everyday opportunities are taken, that usually would be left untouched, and that thousands of users take their first step in starting their (professional) life thanks to Magnet.me.
