The Muse, a values-based job search and career development platform used by 75 million people annually, announced today its purchase of Fairygodboss, the largest online career community for women to find jobs, advice, and support. Fairygodboss was founded in 2015 by Georgene Huang and Romy Newman as an authentic career space for all women to feel supported and empowered. The acquisition reinforces The Muse’s dedication to make a career match where the people, culture, and values align.
Fairygodboss is best known for its active community platform used by more than 10 million diverse and intersectional women annually. Many of these users visit the site daily to get career support and advice from other members and look for new job opportunities. Fairygodboss works with hundreds of top employers committed to diversity and inclusion by helping them to attract, recruit, and engage women.
The Muse’s acquisition of Fairygodboss will further the company’s mission to help the next generation workforce discover their professional priorities and find jobs at companies where the people, benefits, and values fit their future. Their acquisition strategy will ensure that hiring diverse talent remains a top company priority and they look forward to integrating with Fairygodboss, another female-founded brand, to continue carrying out this vision.
