DETROIT (WWJ) – The year old Detroit Venture Partners got a little magic this week when Michigan native and NBA Hall of Fame star Earvin “Magic” Johnson joined the venture capital firm. WWJ Newsradio 950′s Florence Walton reports on one of the young companies Detroit Venture Partners is helping.
The Birmingham based business is called Hired My Way and C.E.O. Matt Mosher said it helps online job seekers connect with the right employer to match their skills.
“It’s different in two ways. One, is it guarantees that your resume is going to be reviewed when you apply through our system. And number two, its kind of a hybrid between a job board and a recruiter on the employer’s side. So, it gives employers better methods to employ better candidates.”
Those looking for work can buy “Mytokens” that they use to post their resumes to job listings through the Hired My Way web-portal.
“Job seekers invest a little bit to apply to the job and what that does is it puts them in a pool that’s almost 80 to 90 percent best candidate, almost 100 percent repeat in having their resumes reviewed, and then we send the candidates a message saying they’ve been reviewed,” Mosher said.
Detroit Venture Partners is providing Hired My Way and five other start-up technology companies and with capital and operational expertise.
