The One Day One Job Story

How did a frustrated job seeker who couldn’t find a job after college build a business helping people just like him find their dream jobs? Here are some articles and interviews with founder Willy Franzen that dig into all of the details.

Who We Are

One Day, One Job was founded by Willy Franzen in May of 2007 and launched on November 12, 2007. He continues to run the site, which became profitable in 2009.

Willy Franzen

Willy FranzenWilly Franzen graduated from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations with a BS in Industrial and Labor Relations in 2006. During his time at Cornell, Willy took a strong interest in Negotiation Theory, Labor Economics, and Human Resources Management.

He started his first Internet business at age 14 and has been fascinated by the web ever since. After dabbling in blogging during his Freshman year in college, he took some time away from web development to focus on other interests. He spent two Summers as a Human Resources Intern at the Orvis Company in Manchester, VT where he worked on analyzing Associate Surveys and redesigning the company’s performance evaluation systems. After graduating from Cornell in 2006 he took on a number of contract jobs while traveling and pursuing his passion of fly fishing. After beginning his job search, he became frustrated with the way employers presented themselves to potential applicants online. He eventually quit his job search and decided to try to change how people find jobs online.

Editorial Policy

We are in no way affiliated with the companies whom we post about, unless it is otherwise stated. We feature their jobs on our site because we like what they have to offer and we think our readership of college aged job seekers will too. We do our best to research both the company and the positions offered, but we cannot guarantee that the information we report will continue to be relevant after the date of posting.

Companies cannot pay to be featured in our daily employer profiles. Doing so would destroy our reputation as a trusted resource for entry-level career information. We do allow companies the opportunity to advertise to our visitors and subscribers; however, all sponsored communications are identified as such.

We will never sell our subscriber list.

We do occasionally link to affiliate programs when we mention specific products or services.
