An Innovative Career Connecting Network
Introducing FresHires: the innovative new job discovery and self branding platform dedicated to revolutionizing the way today’s young job seekers connect with career opportunities and build their futures.
Job search platforms are nothing new, of course: but from LinkedIn to Internmatch, today’s job search platforms fall short of the mark when it comes to equipping today’s highly educated, qualified and motivated young job seekers with the tools and opportunities they need to make the leap from the sheltered world of school to the wide world of career and professional development.
FresHires is here to change the career development game once and for all. Combining everything from self-branding and networking to mentoring and career guidance to job search and job match into one streamlined platform, FresHires is paving the way to the future for job seekers around the world.
The transition from classroom to workplace has always been tricky, but to today’s young job seekers, it feels more than just tricky — it feels next to impossible.
Young people today are entering the workforce more educated, more tech-savvy and more accomplished than any generation in history. But they’re entering the workforce in greater numbers than any generation in history as well, which creates problems, as the job market gets flooded with thousands upon thousands of passionate, motivated young job seekers ready to prove their abilities and launch their careers.
But existing job search platforms — from LinkedIn to Indeed to Internmatch — are not set up in a way that allows young job seekers to showcase the skills and talents that will make them an asset to any company that hires them. Instead, anonymous resumes and cover letters get buried in virtual piles of thousands of other near-identical resumes and cover letters.
The result: job seekers are missing out on the opportunities they need to start building their careers and, just as importantly, employers are missing out on the chance to connect with motivated, talented young professionals who can help build their companies’ futures.
At FresHires, we see the job search just a little bit differently. We envision a job search platform that goes beyond boring resumes, anonymous cover letters and one-size-fits-all job postings.
Welcome to the job search the FresHires way: more connected, more personal and more productive than ever before.
The mission of FresHires is simple: reinvent the way graduates and young job seekers make the tricky leap from classroom to career.
The FresHires vision is about more than building a simple, tech-friendly way of job searching: it’s about eliminating the job search altogether, and giving young job seekers the tools and resources they need to tell the story of who they are and what they want to do in the world.
FresHires is like Facebook mixed with LinkedIn, with a special focus on rising young professionals: college and university students, university recent graduates and young professionals who are short on experience but long on potential and motivation to succeed.
Today’s young people are already spending countless hours of their lives online; at FresHires, we couldn’t help wondering: what would happen if they took all that tech and social media savvy and channeled it towards developing the skills, connections and relationships they will need once they enter the career arena?
The FresHires approach to career development goes beyond listing achievements and checking boxes. We’re building a platform that combines social media, professional networking and career development in one streamlined platform where job seekers can connect with opportunities, with each other, and with more experienced professionals in various fields who are willing to mentor, counsel, coach and educate.
FresHires is more than just social media. We are passionate about human development, career development and the belief that every young job seeker has a skill to share with the world and FresHires is the place where they can tell the world about it.
Here’s a quick overview of just a few of the features that make FresHires unlike any career development platform available today:

Students and graduates can also create customized chat rooms on academic topics or events happening on their campuses and in their communities.
FresHires is still in the early stages of development — like our users are in the early stages of their career. But like with our users, all signs point to bigger and better things to come!
Development of the FresHires mobile app for smartphone and other mobile devices is well underway. This will give users the chance to update their profile wherever they are and whenever they want.
And there’s much more still to come from FresHires! For more information about the future of our platform and how you can help make it happen, please request access to the Business Plan page of this profile!
