Hirect Pledges $1 Million in Support of Fellow Startups
The Startup Program is a Six-Month Sponsorship to Help Fledgling Businesses Grow and Build Their Teams
08 Oct 2021
As Hirect continues to break long-standing barriers to the traditional hiring process through its AI-driven mobile app, it understands the multitude of complex challenges startups face - from exposure to attracting the best possible talent. After all, Hirect is a startup too.
That's why Hirect recently announced the Startup Program, a pledge to use $1 million over the next six months to help startups grow their business and fill high-priority positions with motivated, passionate, qualified candidates. Chosen startups will receive free marketing and ad promotion on various social channels, among other benefits, with the goal of reaching a million impressions across platforms. Selected CEOs and founders are invited to share positions they're hiring for and participate in virtual hiring events hosted by Hirect and our partners.
The first event in August, Hirect’s Startup CEO Direct Hiring Palooza, attracted more than 10,000 virtual viewers. Hosted by industry influencers Jonathan Javier and Jerry Lee, CEO, and COO of Wonsulting, six startup CEOs presented job openings while Hirect’s marketing team ran online advertising campaigns and provided digital assets as part of a free exposure package. Through Hirect’s mobile app, attendees were able to chat directly with these CEOs immediately after the event to present their qualifications and set up interviews.
With more than three million jobs created by startups in each of the last five years in the U.S., there's a bevy of positions to fill.
"We have a simple mission - to help startups stand out and cut through the noise," says Brady Xu, Head of Marketing for Hirect U.S. "We know the hurdles they face, the competition to have their voices and ideas heard because we've walked in the same shoes. We hope this sponsorship will help these startups promote their products and services, increase brand awareness, and, most importantly, connect them with amazing candidates."
The Program is open to startups nationwide, with 10 participating in the campaign to date and a handful of others in the pipeline. One of these startups is Seer, a selling platform that helps retailers and individuals selling create content they can send to customers via email and SMS.
