Free Therapist for employees sold

Craig Spitzkoff  started a Website Company Called JobVent . What started up in as side project for this programmer, became almost like a safe place for people to go and talk about likes and dislikes about their workplace.

 As everyone knows  it is unethical to talk about how one really feels about the employer. It seems that  the walls have ears and the conversations in many ways travel much faster landing right on the bosses desk and anyone can imagine what the outcome would be.

So Craig had the brilliant idea to create a safe place to complain or to talk it up,  it became such a success and with hundreds of people log in, it grew very rapidly and is also feature on Good Morning America.

The site was launched in 2004 , and the visitors was flooding in almost immediately reaching about 150,000 monthly, within the first year.

JobVent had been generating revenue from advertising that was “in the tens of thousands of dollars a year.” but the motivation was no longer there.

The founder, Mr. Spitzkoff, all of the sudden lost his enthusiasm for the company, feeling tired and with his health not in the best shape, it was almost impossible to dedicate the time needed in order to maintain the site. So the decision to sell was inevitable.

 A start-up called Glassdoor was a company that could be called a sister to JobVent, Glassdoor like JobVent collect comments about employers from employees, but also to share information about salaries, benefits, and the job interview experience. Glassdoor was a newer company but with the same concept. 

So Glassdoor set up to buy of JobVent. A Glassdoor spokesperson wouldn’t comment on the deal.

It has been said JobVent will continue to operate independently: “We believe that there’s value in both brands being separate and distinct.” It is important to give our clients the perfect space to come in  and leave comments that could help others make the right decision about their new careers or their new employees.

JobVent and Glassdoors give employers and  employees equal opportunities. A win-win situation for all.
