Start-ups and Job Seekers Use Technology to Add ValuePosted on: July 16, 2013, by : Tuesday
Q & A with Chris Russell, CEO of CareerCloud, LLC
I’m excited to share a snapshot of my recent Q & A with Chris Russell, CEO of CareerCloud, LLC, with you. What’s exciting for me is the opportunity to highlight the creative ways in which technology based start-ups are discovering new ways to add value in the market. Job seekers continue to benefit from the rapid response to their demand to connect with potential employers and “bridges” to employers – “bridges” being who you know that knows someone that can get you connected to the organization in which you seek to work, click here for additional info on “bridges”.
What is the value proposition for participants?
“The value proposition is threefold. It gives any job seeker the ability to combine their Facebook friends and LinkedIn connections into a single database so you can see where everyone works. Secondly, CareerCloud.com displays open jobs at each of those companies (provided they are hiring) and thirdly, we feature a one click “Ask for Referral” button for each person in your network. So if you see a job that interests you, there’s an easy way to get referred into that company.”

“If I’m looking for a job, I’d rather start with a tool like this”, CareerCloud, LLC, CEO Chris Russell. “Being able to leverage one’s contacts is a much better way to look for work. Not only will it help you get hired faster but your friend will probably get a referral bonus from their employer. It’s a win-win.”
