Geordie commented on Millennial TechCorps

Congratulations Liz!

Hi Dan - really great stuff. Another channel you might want to consider for serving content is LinkedIn. We've found a bit of success on the platform because people there are in the right mindset (thinking about jobs and careers) - but many are unsatisfied with that platform as a solution for them (or at least it hasn't worked for them yet).

This is coming together nicely - congrats!

Geordie commented on Interviews for humans...not robots.

Hi Sarah - the initial filtering question is one that we are trying to answer with theThings.biz. By focusing on transferable soft skills proven in diverse environments as the initial screen for candidates we hope to humanize that filtering process. Our hope is that a focus on how people think and work versus specifically what they've done will bring a more human perspective to the hiring process - here's our contribution: https://openideo.com/challenge/youth-employment-pathways/ideas/start-your-career-wherever-you-re-starting-from

Also, if you'll indulge some thoughts we wrote earlier in the year about the need for a more human approach to human capital which references some interesting new companies like HireVue (http://hirevue.com) who are also trying to evolve interviewing:
