Derek Toh - Hiredly
Online and Offline Recruiting beyond the CV and Job Description
This week we are joined by Derek Toh of Hiredly, which is a a leading online to offline recruitment platform for junior to mid-management talent, including both a job portal and headhunter recruiter solution.
This was a great conversation where we go from Derek’s time as a headhunter to his realization of the importance of information beyond the job description and beyond the CV. We talk about scaling the two sides of the marketplace and what the typical job postings are. We wrap things up by talking about their future plans and a bit about the outlook for remote vs hybrid vs in-office.
I’d love to know what you took away from this conversation with Derek Toh. If you’d like to be considered as a guest or have someone that you’d like to hear me speak to, drop me a message.
