Investment: GoJob

Some people make great employees but are unable to produce an impressive CV. This can lessen their potential to society, their quality of life and their self-esteem. With the high unemployment rate, it is crucial to find innovative ways to go around employment discrimination, which is what GoJob does.

About GoJob

Alarmed by the high rate of unemployment in France, entrepreneur Pascal Lorne founded GoJob in 2015 as an online employment platform that connects motivated employees with companies looking for competent temporary staff. GoJob focuses on experience-based recruitment, as opposed to traditional CV-based applications. Companies can assess potential employees based on criteria such as punctuality, the capacity to work in a team, and competency in completing desired tasks. This gives people a fair chance at finding work regardless of their CVs.
