Who we are
As a small business owner hiring staff is a time consuming and stressful process. As you know running a
business requires us to wear many hats in the company and hiring is one of them. So, I did what everyone does
when looking for staff. I posted an ad online.
First of all, the process is not intuitive, but there was nothing else available. Like you, I was preparing
myself for the volumes of resumes that I would need to read, review, assess and then select candidates to
interview. My method was extremely complex (wink wink), I started highlighting words in each resume that were
important for the position while watching out for grammar and spelling errors.
After the first review, then I would go through the “Yes” pile a second time to pick the candidates to
interview. This began the next stressful phase of the process telephone and voicemail tag. This process took
many days to complete. Then came the scheduling of the interviews into an already busy schedule. To minimize
the disruption, I tried to set-up what I called “the interview day” where all the candidates would come in on
Interview day came, unfortunately there were no-shows and candidates that were not suitable. After this entire
process and not finding the right candidate we had to start the process all over again. However, other times
there were good potential candidates and then came the tough call of choosing.
Given today’s digital age there must be a way to make the process better that uses today’s technology to help
the candidate and employer connect. First, allow the candidate to express themselves more effectively in the
short time span an employer has to review someone’s application. Second, allow employers a more intuitive and
better experience through this stressful process. Third, have it all available on one platform for both the
candidate and employer to connect including the interview process.
Finally, we have a platform that does all of this and that is how SeeMeHireMe became to be.
