#213 Dan Hudson, CEO and Founder of GiGL, on Recruiting the Gen Z Workforce

Dan Hudson is the CEO and Founder of GiGL, the anti-CV tech startup making recruitment less boring. Featured in the Startups100 list of top startups of 2023, they are re-shaping the recruitment market with their video-based recruitment platform by delivering a fast, efficient, friendly and fun process for everyone. 


In this conversation, Dan unpacks more about his background and how he founded the business. We also explore why volatility is an opportunity, the need to change the way we hire Gen Z, how they have eradicated ‘ghosting’ in the application process, and some learning from operating as a tech-first business.
