TextRecruit, Upwork and Amazon, Oh My!

Hey kids, it’s The Shred for October 2, 2018, brought to you by Judge.com. Whether you’re moving your systems to the cloud, building out a team for your next project, finding healthcare talent for your organization, filling that mission critical direct hire to lead your team, or training your employees on the latest technology, Judge.com can deliver to ensure your organization’s long-term growth. To the news: Popular text recruiting platform and iCIMS property TextRecruit has introduced Automated Scheduling. Employers can integrate their Microsoft or Google Calendar and trigger a scheduling event from their TextRecruit dashboard. Users can also use Ari, the company’s AI technology to schedule events as well. With companies like Hire by Google and startup GoodTime getting into the automated scheduling game, the time seems right for a messaging company to throw its hat in the ring too. In other news, popular freelance marketplace Upwork is going public this week. The opening price is estimated to be between $12 – $14, which is an increase from $10 – $12 yesterday. Analysts expect the stock to settle in around $20 per share. Lastly, Amazon has raised the minimum wage for its workers to $15-per-hour. Vermont senator Bernie Sanders applauded the move, congratulating Amazon founder Jeff Bezos “for doing exactly the right thing.” Be sure to tune into the weekly show for deeper opinion on news you hear on The Shred.
