My name is Chris, Co founder and Executive Director of Business Development of a brand new internet company called, CareerStarter.com. I handle the many relationships CareerStarter has with other companies.
CareerStarter is a new career competitions website designed to help college students and young professionals launch their careers. We do this by offering users the opportunity to record video introductions, upload work samples and enter skills based job competitions. I believe this is the missing link that companies and young professionals have needed to make the interviewing process more appealing and rewarding for both the employer and the candidate. Many job websites are saying that there is not a job crisis, but a skills crisis. CareerStarter is going to help young professionals show off their skills and will allow companies to put up challenges that will be specific to the position that job requires. This will allow companies to filter talent and get the best of the best. My job is to handle not only the day to day requests of the companies that are CareerStarter’s partners, but to also travel to new companies and educate them on our competition based hiring solutions.
