App that links entry-level candidates to local employers, Employ Me!, has recently taken first place at William Paterson University’s eighth annual Pitch Tank Competition - worth $3,000.
The app was created by Mojahed Hamdeh of Wayne. He goes on to compete at the April 26 U-Pitch NJ (New Jersey’s Collegiate Business Model Competition) event at Seton Hall University, representing William Paterson.
