This week the TalentCulture community talked with writer and filmmaker Heath Padgett about how to create the ultimate hiring experience. Heath has a very interesting story and it made for a great jumpstart to 2016.
While still figuring out what he wanted to do with his life, Heath Padgett quit his software sales job and convinced his new bride to hit the road on their 2014 honeymoon and work a different job in all 50 U.S. states.
They called their quest Hourly America and they filmed the entire journey for a documentary that will be released later this year. During his trek, Heath pitched more than 200 companies and experienced a myriad of hiring practices, both good and bad.
His shared how a company that rejected him turned him into a huge fan, how one business surprised him with the best hiring experience of his life, how he used online job search techniques to find the best companies to work for — and much more.
