10:15 am ExecThread: Disrupting the Executive Hiring Model
Joe Meyer, Founder and CEO of startup ExecThread was looking for a new role when he experienced inefficiency with the process of working with external recruiters, and so he decided to figure out how to reinvent the job discovery process for executives. The result is ExecThread, a crowdsourced platform which enables executives to learn about career opportunities directly from other platform participants. Joe will tell us about the model as well as his plans to create an enterprise solution moving forward.
