Introducing Ellie Dailey
Today's guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is a lady who is taking the boring old CV and turning it on its head. She is the founder and CEO of an innovative online recruiting platform— Intro30.com. The platform allows job seekers to record an online video introduction as part of a shareable profile including a resume. It breaks down the first stage of demonstrating enthusiasm, personal care, professionalism live, before they ever get in-front of the recruiting team. So there's not that shock to the system when instead of a well groomed business professional entering the interview room, you get someone who looks like they have just rolled out of bed. Candidates can then submit these profiles to companies, add them to their resumes and have direct access to the jobs and companies on Intro30. On the demand side, Intro30 will enable companies to view a candidate’s 30-second elevator pitch, search the database by keyword, location or skill set and reach out to learn more about them. Companies can also list their jobs, market them and share them with QR codes, and attract candidates directly. Now this isnt an idea that has just popped into her head, but was probably bubbling around for many years, as she has been a recruiter all over the world, from the UK to the Middle East, to Asia and now Silicon Valley for nearly 20 years. As he says "This has allowed me to gain expertise in a variety of recruiting environments, including banking, sovereign wealth funds, tech, and finance." So was this an idea that many said "This wont work or it would have been done before by someone." And where do people get hung up most in starting their own business, on the doing or the wanting to do it? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Ellie Dailey Show Highlights During the show we discussed such deep weighty subjects with Ellie Dailey such as: We discuss how people are so much more informal in today's much to chagrin to both Ellie and David.
