Bravo has a popular television show called The Millionaire Matchmaker. It's essentially an exercise in matching rich guys with ladies who want to be with rich guys.

If it sounds a little bit like recruiting, then you're on the right track.

Kenny Mendes, recruiter at Box.com outlines how his team took a popular TV show and turned it into a successful recruiting event. For more, visit http://blog.jobscore.com.

  • The goals are pretty clear…lofty, no doubt…but it was absolutely critical that we hit these hiring goals because all of our revenue targets depended on us succeeding.Allie had a really small team to tackle this problem. It was essentially her, one other sourcer, and a coordinator. There was also this tricky constraint…Our team of 20 sales reps literally couldn’t afford to spend 4-5 hours a day doing interviews. Their productivity would be crippled. This was not a fun position for Allie to be in, but I had full confidence that she’d find a great way to do it.
