As a teacher at Greek Public School (teaching algorithms), I noticed that students and young people couldn't really connect with the market and the business world. It is more difficult than it looks like. 100k students only in Greece (imagine how many more in Europe and worldwide) finishes the school every year and they are “not so able” to find a job, or even some opportunities to move on. On the other hand, businesses and organizations would die to recruit immediately young talents and have them working for them at their very first steps. These young talents, could probably be the next big executive members for these companies in years to come. Giving a first look at the professional networks that currently exists (LinkedIn, Xing or Viadeo) I would say that these are not what people really want in my opinion. These networks have a way of thinking and a philosophy, which helps actually only professionals to connect between them. A large amount of useful connections that could occur...

Giving a first look at the professional networks that currently exists (LinkedIn, Xing or Viadeo) I would say that these are not what people really want in my opinion. These networks have a way of thinking and a philosophy, which helps actually only professionals to connect between them. A large amount of useful connections that could occurred, are missed, because of the way that these networks operate. On the other hand, Xing (German network) and Viadeo (French network) which are a copy actually of LinkedIn, working successfully and have a lot of registered users. So imagine what a new professional network, that would make the difference, could become. WorkNet24 actually came to do exactly the opposite of what these existing professional networks do.

My site aims to connect all young people (students), professionals and entrepreneurs around the globe with the market and business world. WorkNet24 was first presented in Web Summit in Dublin, November 2014 and it is online for a few months after a donation from Google. On October 2014 I met with Rahul Sood (CEO at Microsoft Ventures) in WEBIT Congress in Istanbul. Rahul noticed that my network and my services would be good to be more specific. So since then I made some more changes to my site.

The big difference of WorkNet24 from all other competitors (like LinkedIn) is that helps users to create professional profiles based not only on their CV, but also on their needs about the jobs, partnerships and projects they are looking for. While other networks focuses most on business connections, we focus on how the users will find their dream job, partnership or project. I don’t believe that there is a meaning in creating business connections that are not useful for you actually. It is a waste of time. ... find out more in my business plan!
