Elevator Speech / What Do You Do At Yello

I guess what I do at Yello is what I have been doing my whole career before Yello – being the voice of recruitment change! So many organizations are still recruiting like they did in 1984: handwritten notes on resumes, multiple static spreadsheets, etc. My mission is to tell the world that there is a better way. I evangelize the benefits of bringing technology and systems, like Yello, into the recruiting universe through content, blogs, traditional media, social media, speaking engagements and key events.
