Yahoo ‘Kickstart’s social networking service for college goers

Yahoo has recently launched Kickstart, a social networking service targetted at college graduates to help them find jobs. Kickstart allows students to connect and communicate with classmates, alumni and companies who might be able to help them with careers. Users can post their resumes along with photographs.

Scott Gatz, Senior Director of Yahoo!’s Advanced Products Division, said that the site was intended for use as a career networking tool. “It is a professional network to help college students and recent graduates build a professional network. Kickstart is not a competitor to Facebook because it focuses on career development as opposed to fun. The initial preview is to focus on professionals and alumni, with students being included next year,” he added.

Kickstart also allows users to search for other people’s profiles and contact them.

This further expansion of Yahoo! into social networking follows the launch of Mash, intended specifically for socialising purposes, in September last year.
