Describe yourself in a few words: More than just a tall person
If you weren’t at MindSumo, what would you be doing? I’d like to think I’d be a bottom tier cog in the marketing department of a Fortune 500 company, or making movies while trying to get by on the money I make from the “gigs” section of craigslist
Why will MindSumo change the world? College students are smart. Who would’ve thought, right? Unfortunately, as things stand now companies are scared to make hires on people with a lack of work experience because there is simply no better barometer to tell what will make a successful employee. MindSumo will change the world by allowing companies to assess and acquire the best talent, not just the talent that has worked somewhere before.
