Doostang members can access the Doostang community and their personal Facebook friend network to identify and leverage inside connections at the employers they want to work for. Unlike LinkedIn, Doostang does not charge employers to post jobs, allows its members to contact any other member for free, and automatically highlights any shared affiliation between individuals such as a common undergraduate university or former employer. These social connections have proven invaluable to thousands of members who have successfully advanced their career on Doostang.
Doostang is partnered with career centers at leading undergraduate and graduate business schools across the globe, as well as leading professional associations such as 85 Broads, a globally recognized network of trailblazing, career-minded, multigenerational women graduates and students of the world’s leading colleges, universities, and graduate schools. Doostang had raised capital from Shasta Ventures, a leading venture capital firm in Silicon Valley.
