Strong Suit 154: If Your Recruiting Takes Forever, This Episode is For You

There’s nothing I love better than a good juicy entrepreneur story. Creating a new business, born out of personal need & frustration.
And if it helps us recruit rockstars, all the better.
Josh Tolan is CEO of Sparkhire, which he founded 7 years ago. It’s now the fastest-growing video interviewing company in the world, with over 3,000 corporate clients.
Why video interviewing? Josh was with a 5-person firm in hypergrowth mode. They needed to hire 150 people in 12 months. And the only way to get it done swiftly was by using video for the initial candidate screen.
So, Sparkhire was born.
In this 20-minute interview, Josh reveals the pros & cons of video interviewing. When to use it, when to skip it, the best practices, and most importantly, how it can shave weeks of your current hiring cycle time.
If you’re going to recruit folks during Q4 this year – or if you just love a great startup story – you can’t afford to miss this episode.
