We launched Magnet.me in 2012 to solve a problem that we experienced as students ourselves: that it is hard to find a graduate job you love. Traditional student job sites are spammy, user unfriendly and only used by big companies with big recruitment budgets, leading to nothing but frustration.
Since our launch, we have been on a mission to make it easier for students to find a job they love, at any company - regardless size, industry or budget. Not just because a (first) job earns you a living, but because having a job you genuinely love affects your life in countless ways. It makes you happier and leads to a higher self esteem. Also, your first job is your first step in your professional life, so it better be one in the right direction.
At the same time, we want to make it easier for companies - from startups to multinationals - to hire the right talent to fuel their business. After all, talent is one of the biggest contributor to business success.
Magnet.me is an innovative online graduate careers network. It enables students to find the right internship, placement or graduate job and to directly connect with graduate employers. Simultaneously, Magnet.me allows employers to easily discover and find qualified applicants for their graduate jobs, schemes, placements and internships.
Magnet.me is currently active in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and the biggest graduate job site in both countries.
After you have created a student profile, you will directly see an overview which opportunities you are qualified for and which companies would like to connect with you based on your profile. Students can like jobs or apply directly, connect with companies and be approached by graduate employers.
Employers can post their internships, placement, graduate jobs and career events on Magnet.me for free, so students are not limited in their choice of opportunities due to a limited recruitment budget of potential employers, like startups and SMEs.
