A look at Relode's fresh take on recruiting model

Over at Southern/alpha, Kelley Boothe has spent some time with Matt Tant (pictured) and the team leading Relode, which is trying to reinvent the way search firms do business. In addition to letting recruiters flaunt their specialties to companies in need of them, Relode also features a social enterprise element.

If companies need a top-notch, very experienced candidate, they might choose a more experienced, more expensive recruiter. However, there are many situations where companies only need a recruiter for one or two years of experience to help fill that job.
