BranchOut heeft last van cognitieve dissonantie

Logotype BranchOutRick Marini (CEO BranchOut) blijft hopium de ether in spugen als het om de toekomstige groei van het LinkedIn kloontje op Facebook gaat:

“We are one of the companies that could, on the back of Facebook, be on track for becoming a public company in the next three to four years,” said Rick Marini, the founder and CEO of BranchOut, a San Francisco job networking service on Facebook. At its recent pace of adding three new users a second, or about 2 million a week, BranchOut will ultimately pass LinkedIn as the Internet’s largest online employment network, Marini said.

“What I like to say is that LinkedIn does a really good job at the executive, $100,000 and up jobs — the Wall Street jobs. BranchOut does a really good job at the nonexecutive, Main Street jobs,” Marini said. BranchOut is likely to double its workforce this year, to about 100 people, before adding “hundreds” of people next year, he said.

I beg to differ.

Ik heb zeker vragen aan BranchOut, eens kijken of ze die ook met de genoemde liefde willen gaan beantwoorden.
