Episode 33: How the Staffing Industry Can Get Ahead of Upwork with Jan Jedlinski

On this episode of the You Own The Experience podcast, Robert Mann and Lauren B. Jones chat about the recent Sirenum acquisition and why we should modernize the way we take staffing & recruiting businesses to market. Later they are joined by Jan Jedlinksi, Founder and CEO of Candidate.ly, a staffing tech company that allows a firm to transform their website into a candidate-filled digital storefront.

Here Mann, Jones, and Jedlinski discuss the need for the staffing and recruiting industry to offer a different type of digital experience — one that goes far beyond the current request form on a website. They speak about how other industries like e-commerce and real estate can act as inspiration, and how gig economy platforms like Fiverr and Upwork have shown the technological possibilities in the talent space.

The crew also chats about:

  • The continued importance of showing your human side, and the trend toward specialization in a single vertical.
  • The need for staffing firms to show up at the right time, and how content can help.
  • Using big data to capitalize on opportunities and offer a better service.
  • Justin Timbergoat’s continued efforts to bring sexy back to Lauren’s farm (a sentence that makes far more sense in context.)
