New graduates are the leaders of the tomorrow. So, companies have to be laser-focused on figuring out how to attract career starters into their organizations.
Of course, technology is on hand to help HR teams successfully find and hire young talent. One example is French-based JobTeaser, which helps the likes of HSBC, Lidl and L’Oréal hire young talent across 25 countries.
But now JobTeaser is expanding its reach across Northern Europe by merging with Nordic early career portal Graduateland. The Danish-headquartered company already works with organizations such as Novo Nordisk, the European Investment Bank and Red Bull.
Some things just don’t fit together!

The future of early career recruitment
The acquisition means the combined company will have a pool of 5 million students and graduates from across 750 universities and schools in Europe, and provide them with access to 250,000 recruiters.
Long term, the pair want to have the largest pool of young talent in Europe to employers and recruiters, as well as open the door of Europe’s biggest companies to students and new graduates by partnering with universities.
The deal will also support the development of new features in JobTeaser’s technology platform.
Talking about the acquisition, JobTeaser’s co-founder and CEO Adrien Ledoux said: “Our ambition has always been to create a true ecosystem for recruiting young European talent.
“Our collaboration with Graduateland allows us to immediately move up a gear and unite our teams on both an expertise and technical level to continue our joint international expansion.”
Graduateland’s CEO Patrick Lund added: ”Our teams are a perfect fit with the mission of JobTeaser, which is one of the driving forces behind the creation of Graduateland.
“We are excited to join them in this mission and help shape the career path of young European talent.”
Financial details of the merger have not been announced, but JobTeaser’s financial advisor for the acquisition was Leuwen.
