You don't fit on a resume

So why does your resume still determine whether you get an interview? It shouldn’t. Hardly is fixing that.

Get ready for a revolution in hiring.

Hardly: the first revolution in hiring since 1653.

That’s right… hiring hasn’t changed since 1653 when the first recruiting agency was founded. We’ve been laboring under the attract-select hiring model until now. Websites like and just digitized a centuries-old practice. 

Hiring is painful and overwhelming— for both the hirers and the candidates. Now, the world doesn’t need another job search tool! It needs a job curation tool that puts knowledge into the hands of the professional and speeds up time-to-hire for businesses.

Chief Executive Officer

Why I Hardly Work:

I firmly believe that when people seek to understand their own motivations and strengths, it leads to empathy for others. I fell in love with organizational behavior classes while getting my MBA at Carnegie Mellon. Hardly was born out of my many years of experience recruiting respondents for focus groups and my love for psychology. My hope is that Hardly will be a catalyst for change within the workforce, and that we can simultaneously remove bias within the hiring process.

Chief Operating Officer

Why I Hardly Work:

Teams need to be able to work together and compliment each other’s differences. From the bands I played in, to my programming teams, and the project teams and student government in the MBA, I’ve been a part of many diverse and varied groups. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t, and hope to help improve companies productivity within their teams. Hardly will revolutionize the hiring process by finding candidates the team of their dreams in the most un-biased way possible.
