The recruiting technology startup Jibe was one of 30 companies selected to pitch to New York venture capitalists November 7-8.
There were more than 300 applicants in all kinds of industries. Those selected include a new doctor’s portal, an iPad magazine, and a manicurist company that works with HR departments to fancy up nails at people’s workplaces.
Jibe started a couple years ago as employee referrals and social media began to meld together. It then played up its mobile capabilities, particularly now as an antidote to poor smart-phone candidate experiences. Some experts, like David Martin, are quite bullish on Jibe as a tool to apply for jobs with a mobile phone.
AOL’s CEO Tim Armstrong, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, and Clear Channel’s CEO Bob Pittman will be at the New York event, which’ll include pitches and keynotes.
