None of us will deny the fact that looking for a new job is exhausting. It takes time, patience, and a whole lot of scrolling online. As the saying goes, looking for a job is a full time job in itself. Given how tricky it can be, we wanted to help in some way, so that you can all find roles you genuinely love (the dream, right?)
We have been collaborating with Jobbio to bring you VentureBeat Jobs, a fantastic hub where some of the coolest companies in the world can advertise their roles, and land talent like yourself.
To get you started (and to give you a flavour of the kind of roles going at the moment), here are five really cool companies currently open for applications.
