I had the chance of organising a conversation with seasoned brand strategist turned entrepreneur Frank Striefler. Inspired by dating sites matching potential partners, and frustrated by his own experience as a candidate and as a hiring manager in the creative communications and marketing industries, Frank created a job matching site: Siftly.com. I've had Siftly on my radar as it had been growing in popularity over the past few years, and also because it started as a dedicated platform by and for strategists in marketing and communications industries.
In the past few years the job matching site for experts and specialist jobs extended from strategy roles to offer services for other functions such as account management. Soon they will be launching Siftly Now for freelancers in the creative communications industries.
Frank has a wealth of experience both with creative agencies and global brands like Nike, we had a fascinating conversation about his career, what led him to create Siftly, how it works, and some future projects coming up with the new business. I hope you enjoy!
