Between filing patents, trademarks, pitching investors, coding, marketing and making sure there are mints on the conference room table we’ve had a few great things happen over the past two months:
The biggest news is that Howard Bates, former CEO of SmarterHQ and past president of Kratos Defense Systems and Haverstick Consulting has joined the Work Here team. Howard has years of experience building successful companies and oversaw building the State of Indiana’s Workforce Development system while he was with Haverstick consulting.
We’ve also formalized our partnership with DirectEmployers Association and are very happy to be getting jobs right from the source. In case you didn’t know, DirectEmployers operates NLX, the job exchange that moves position openings between over 19,000 private sector employers and all 50 US State Workforce Agencies. The partnership with DirectEmployers means that Work Here can help people find over 2 million jobs and 18 million places they can work.
We’re rapidly approaching our public beta release of Work Here. Job seekers can try the web version of our app here (it works great on tablets and phone). Right now, you can instantly find places to work and posted jobs anywhere in the United States.
