IT in the D, Episode 20: D:Hive and Getting Hired

Episode 20 of the IT in the D show with April Boyle from D:Hive Detroit and Stephanie Goodrich of Secure-24.

photo (1)In our first segment, we talk through news and events that have caught our eye including conspiracy theories, Google forcing Google+ integration on Youtube and the public backlash and more.

In our second segment, we dive in with April to learn about all of the cool things that D:Hive has going on. They’re the folks behind one of our former show guests, Spielhaus Toys, getting setup with a pop-up storefront downtown, and they do much more in that avenue. From running classes teaching people how to actually start a business to bar crawls and walking tours throughout Detroit, D:Hive is doing some great stuff.

In our third segment, we chat with Stephanie Goodrich from Secure-24 about reasons people aren’t getting hired. From the horror stories of people bringing their parents to interviews to a complete lack of soft skills, and then on to companies that artificially manipulate market statistics so that they can bring in H1B visa workers on the cheap…a good chat for sure.

To wrap things up in our final segment, we double back with our guests on some earlier points and close things out with some general chatter and discussions.
