The Muse raises $16 million


The job search website for millennials, The Muse, has raised $16 million in a Series B round led by Icon Ventures. This investment is on top of the $13 million it raised last year, which brings its total funding to $29 million. Compared to traditional job websites that are impersonal and treat applicants as simple statistics, The Muse aims to put the human touch back in job search. In addition to announcing available jobs and allowing potential employees sell their skills, the company also serves up career advice, resources to help applicants improve their skills and offers coaching services. Companies who advertise jobs on The Muse can use the website to promote themselves and show their company culture. The Muse has roughly 50 million unique visitors annually.
