Still a student, but already very active as an entrepreneur: Peter Vogel - student at ETH Zurich and co-founder of JobZippers.com - has been interviewed by Tiburon-TV at the StartUpCamp Switzerland. JobZippers is a career service center for Swiss, Austrian and German universities. As Peter explains, „JopZippers provide a complete university career service - not only a link to companies out in the industry to jobs but also inside the universities. We offer the career service exclusively to universities that do not have a career service center. Those who have one can become partners with a revenue sharing model.“ JobZippers has been founded in December 2007 and is based on a model that has already been proven in the US and in France. It will go online in mid-February. According to Peter, there are already more than 40 companies that have signed up until now. Peter’s goal is to have 100-200 companies and 10.000-20.000 students by the end of 2009: „For companies it’s a hassle to enter each university individually“ says Peter, „with JobZippers they have access to a network of universities and career centers so that they can post a job once and it’s online everywhere. Or they can look through the database, elect which university they want to recruit from and directly attract the students.“ Peter and his co-founder recruited three „IT guys“ and a designer to JobZippers’ team – „all based on motivation mainly“. They have no funding at all: „We will see how personnel-intense it is and if we need additional investment or not.“ Here’s Peter’s advice for other startup founders: „Look around if your service already exists. If so, try to find something that is a small variation. Above all, get a unique selling preposition.“ More interviews with Viktoria from the StartUpCamp Switzerland will follow in the days to come and can be found @ www.tiburon-tv.com.
