The Job Hunting Podcast Episode 156

Evan Sohn is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Recruiter.com, an on-demand recruiting platform that combines AI and video job-matching technology with the world's largest network of small and independent recruiters. Recruiter.com is a SaaS AI recruiting software. It helps employers like Amazon and Pfizer source and hire the best candidates, such as product managers, business analysts, marketing specialists, business managers, and so on. You get the picture. Basically, it’s software that helps employers find you.

"What's really changed is that the availability of jobs, certainly in the knowledge worker, has never been greater." - Evan Sohn

So, when Evan’s team reached out to me for a podcast chat, I was prepared for a very techy conversation. But that is not the case. I was surprised and happy with the outcome and believe many listeners will enjoy the sharp, crisp, and very pragmatic chat that I had with Evan a few weeks ago. 

Evan goes back to basics and reinforces many messages we have heard before on this podcast. One of those key messages is the need to know your superpower, career DNA, or exceptional talents.

If you’re struggling to figure it out, fear not! I’d love to help you. Please go to my Find My Talents, a new service I'm offering, which will deliver to you in spades. You can pair it up with a consultation with me or just at least take that first step of investing in the assessment. I trust you will be happy with the results when you get the report highlighting your top talents, career drivers, and personal values. It will give you great confidence in developing your professional pitch. To learn more about Find My Talents HERE.

"Figure out who you are and then find a job that aligns with that." - Evan Sohn
