Hello,


We have a proof of concept for our product with users and revenue generated.


cv30.co is a career social network for millennials which provides a reengineered user centric experience, where companies engage with millennials and develop relationships, rather than just promote jobs.


Millennials discover companies, and teams based on authentic employee generated content which reveals the culture & values, work environment, management style.

by comparison to "normal" transaction models of most career websites, candidates engage through a feed of career relevant information personalised and augmented by features which they like and are accustomed to

  • follow
  • endorse
  • comment
  • Q&A
  • rankings
  • photo & video 1st

Thank you
