Rayanne Thorn's Summary
I love that constant innovation takes us to the next level: mobile & social comms, location technology, as well as improved processes. I work hard to understand the effect of these different technologies for business today and the importance of creating and supporting products which benefit the world of work in THIS day and time.
Apploi transforms the initial point of capture for jobseekers, allowing companies to see personality and soft skills upfront (through video and audio questions), hire talent quickly (both through filters and screening tools, as well as instant communication). Apploi provides greater access to people who previously couldn’t apply (lack of internet) or who didn’t know about opportunities. Apploi’s public kiosks are available at companies, job centers, community centers and colleges, workforce centers, and libraries.
I also host HR Latte - talk radio for the HR /Recruiting space (HRLatte.com) - Thursdays at 10am EDT
I also write Bonus Track (BonusTrackDaily.com) at Blogging4Jobs.com and Host Bonus Track Radio at KX at One Laguna (http://kx.onelaguna.com/show/bonustrackradio) where I talk about business today and how it consistently changes.
In my spare time, I serve on the Advisory Board for PlanetRehab.org, learning as much as I can and helping to raise awareness of issues relative to our earth.
My varied background (sourcing, direct recruitment, marketing, sales, health care, new tech development, start-ups, entertainment, and social media) rounds out my knowledge base and has provided the experience necessary to assist companies in refining recruitment processes, funding, through tech development, alpha & beta testing, launch, analysts relations, developing partnerships, as well as business & marketing plan development and execution.
