Joe Meyer, founder and CEO of ExecThread , discusses his company, which crowdsources executive and senior level job positions, the idea for which he came up with after having a difficult time finding his next position. Recently ExecThread raised $7 million in venture capital funding and has expanded the business outside of being just a referral-based platform. Now, anyone who wants to apply for a position can, and if they're a good fit, they'll be accepted onto the job search site. Meyer discusses the "give to get" model of the company, where if you submit a job opportunity, that then opens you up to being able to search and apply for jobs through the site. Meyer discusses the company's plan to work with hiring companies, adding that the ExecThread model will also reduce the cost of the job search process for recruiters.
