Celebrate! One year of JobAngels


About JobAngels

JobAngels began one year ago with a single "Tweet" on the microblogging service Twitter. In that short time, this grassroots movement has grown to an active community of more than 40,000 members strong. Both traditional and new media have embraced our mission with JobAngels featured on 250+ television stations, in 40+ tier one newspapers and magazines, on 2,000+ blogs and podcasts and in dozens of conferences and events. JobAngels participants have sent over 2.5 million messages of encouragement, job postings, networking and feedback. As a result, nearly 1,400 people (that we know of) have found gainful employment through association with our movement. This is a vibrant ecosystem of hope and we sincerely appreciate the spirit of giving born from the simple concept of helping just one person find gainful employment. On behalf of job seekers everywhere, we applaud your individual and collective efforts!
If you’d like to learn more about how this movement was born, we encourage you to read How JobAngels (And You) Have Changed My Life by our Founder, Mark Stelzner.
Please join us on Friday, January 29th at 6pm ET to celebrate the one year anniversary of JobAngels. Hear from our founder, the JobAngels volunteer leadership team, successful job seekers and some very special guests. We'll also have some exciting announcements to share. To listen to the podcast live, please click here. You can also download the replay via iTunes at your leisure.
I will be there and be live, along with the other amazing people who make this party run!
