Kickstart was launched by the company’s Advanced Products Group in
April this November last year and aimed to connect students and alumni at specific colleges and universities and also help them connect on a professional level.
When it debuted, many wondered if there was room for Kickstart, given the fact that Facebook and LinkedIn pretty much had that ground covered already and the service didn’t really bring anything new to the table. It was really job board disguised as a social network (the site now suggests visitors go to Yahoo’s Hotjobs).
