There are a number of what I would call next generation job boards gaining ground in online hiring. Wonolo and Seasoned.co are both web site /app companies that let companies hire on demand.
I spoke with one of the cofounder of Wonolo on my RecTech Podcast recently. What’s interesting about their model is how they bypass the job interview. You post a shift, and workers basically just show up when needed.
Seasoned.co, is the first online restaurant community designed to provide “better jobs for deserving talent and better talent for deserving restaurants”, announced recently that it will debut new recruiting and hiring solutions for the industry at the 2018 National Restaurant Association Show at McCormick Place in Chicago, May 19-22. Seasoned will also be on-site creating free profiles for restaurants looking to recruit and retain top talent and streamline the hiring process.
Thats a pretty good marketing tactic for an industry site to get access to a target rich environment. Here’s how they describe themselves;
