Venturocket can help you get a job without even trying

Venturocket wants to help you never have to search or apply for a job again. Hoag said Venturocket stands out because it is not a job application platform or Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Hoag said this approach serves as a filter mechanism and creates a disincentive against dishonest job seekers. “Passive job seekers” create simple profiles about their skills and what they are looking for.

Tech recruiting service Whitetruffle comes out of beta

"It is my personal view that I don’t think you should have to search for a job," Deve told me. Interestingly, around 50% of the hires through Whitetruffle were passive candidates hired away from their current jobs, Deve told me. Other services keep sending you things al the time, but we don’t want to do that," Deve told me. That is where tech recruiting platform Whitetruffle comes in. Whitetruffle was founded in 2011 by CEO Alex Deve, Ali Behnam, and Michael Morell, who all have expertise in consumer products and recruiting.
