You can listen to the full, 29 minute episode on iTunes here. In it, Linda and Corey cover:
- More on Corey’s background as an entrepreneur and the WHY behind founding Aspireship. (2:40)
“People who were starting their careers or even in the first 10+ years of their career were finding themselves where they had fallen in to a certain line of work, a certain functional area, maybe a certain industry and they came to a point where they realized that it wasn’t the best fit for themselves and that they could apply their skills to other things. Whether it was for an internal transfer or looking to go outside of their current company into a new industry or a new line of work, the hiring system had already filtered them out.”
- The purpose of the platform. (4:30)
- How the pandemic paved the way for Aspireship to support career transitions for those with prior sales experience (hospitality, mortgage, insurance, advertising, restaurant and other sectors) and people looking for a functional change from other types of jobs. (6:30)
- How employers are responding to this change in the hiring model/process specifically in the software sector. (8:44)
- Why our business model is unconventional. (17:40)
- Where the resume and specific school/degree affiliations fall into play. (18:51)
- What’s next. Aspireship has closed one gap. What’s to come in the future? (25:35)
