Ready. Aim. Hire!


Hi! We’re Vanessa and Rick, and we came up with the idea for Hiring Squad after losing our jobs during the financial crisis in 2008. We wanted to create an online forum where people (like you!) can share advice on how to get hired. We hope to educate you by providing the best job search resources, inspire you with success stories, and give you the tools, tips, and tactics you need to get the job you want. Ready. Aim. Hire!






The Basics

There are ways to ensure you’re putting your best foot forward.



Success Stories

Finding the right job takes time, motivation, and creativity.




The Gig Economy

Maybe the best path to a career you love doesn’t involve a job at all.





Looking for a job? Laid off? Between gigs? Need a second source of income?
