When we last checked in with hiredMYway,
the downtown Birmingham-based startup was just getting its feet
underneath itself by preparing to hold its first job fair. A few months
later the company has locked down an outside investor, held a couple of
job fairs, and is launching its website this week.
“It’s really growing quick,” says Matt Mosher, CEO and co-founder of hiredMYway.
So is its staff. It went from half a dozen this summer to nine
employees, five independent contractors, and two interns today. It’s
also looking to hire a sales associate and plans to add a handful of new
hires over the next year.

also plans to hold a job fair today to accompany the launch of the new
Its job expos have helped put 300 Michigan residents back to work, and
similar results are expected over the next year. Mosher expects the
website to attract 10,000 new people per month looking for work.
