The Hiring Game: Bypass the Algo and get the interview!

Forget everything you’ve been told about job hunting. Rory Lessig, a titan in the recruitment field with 18 years under his belt, throws a wrench into what we’ve accepted as the norm in job applications and hiring processes. This isn’t your typical chat about resumes and cover letters. Instead, Rory pulls back the curtain on a truth so many overlook: the power of personal connections over algorithms. In a landscape where Fortune 500 companies pour millions into recruitment strategies, he reveals an unexpected and undervalued tactic—friendship. Yes, you read that right.

In our discussion, we dismantle the myth of the all-knowing hiring algorithm and show you why your next job might just be a handshake away.
