(PRWEB) April 03, 2014
The Venture Development Center at the University of Massachusetts Boston announced today the acceptance of a new startup company to their incubator. My Foot In The Door aligns well with their mission of identifying top business teams and change agent business concepts within Boston. My Foot In The Door is dedicated to transforming the way college students identify and secure best-fit careers – say no to job boards.
“The one-on-one approach offered by My Foot In The Door provides a unique advantage for both job seekers as well as employers, and we think there’s a huge market potential” said William Brah – Founder and Executive Director of the Venture Development Center.
“My Foot In The Door® believes our platform, solution, and career consultants provide a comprehensive toolkit for students who are preparing to enter the job market for the first time,” said Christina Bjornstrom, Cofounder and Director of University Outreach at My Foot In The Door®. “We’re very fortunate to join the VDC, where the resources, collaborative environment, and mentorship provided are second to none. Being a part of Boston’s thriving entrepreneurial community is also very exciting for us.”
My Foot In The Door was launched after recognizing that online job boards are not only largely inefficient—they offer very little guidance to the college graduate job seeker. My Foot In The Door’s solution is therefore the only candidate-facing hiring platform around today that provides career consultants who are assigned to each user to help them identify and secure best-fit careers.
