Become a MENCH Blogger

Hi Stranger,

We're looking for a Digital Content Creator/Researcher to join our team. You'll be in charge of training my brain so I can have more diverse conversations with my users and help them achieve their objectives more efficiently.
This involves identifying all kinds of expert created content (articles, videos, books, podcasts, assessments, etc.) and indexing their key insights into conversational workflows inside my brain.
Let's find out if you'd be a good fit for this role, shall we?
I estimate it would take you between 23 - 24 steps (depending on your answers to my questions) in 3 minutes to Become a MENCH Blogger.
Mench is a digital career coach that helps candidates land their dream job faster by sharing expert insights over web or Messenger.
Unlike traditional career coaches who cost a lot and give subjective advice, Mench is (and always will be) free and offers personalized advise based on hundreds of expert books, videos and articles it has been trained on.
  • We started working on Mench full-time in March 2017 out of a beautiful startup co-working space called Venture Labs located in Vancouver, Canada.
    Our first product was a training chatbot that could help job seekers learn the best practices to get hired at their dream job. Soon, we discovered that the true power of Mench was not just on training, but on assessing candidate skills, and on making the assessment process much more engaging than on traditional web-only assessment tools.
    To test this new thesis we invited over 500 candidates to apply to a theoretical job at Mench and the results we obtained were amazing. The average candidate spent over 1.5 hours answering questions and exchanging hundreds of messages with Mench.
    After one week, Mench was able to automatically identify the top 10% candidates that would best match our specific hiring criteria. Candidates enjoyed the experience because it felt like a fluid conversation instead of a dry series of forms and mutiple-choice questions.
    The ultimate realization of that experiment is what Mench is today, a tool that can save your HR department thousands of hours wasted in scanning resumes and calling unqualified candidates!
  • Mench core belief is that all human goals can be broken down into a series of linear steps and that a large community can collaborate to reach consensus as to what are the optimum steps to achieve that goal.
    Where traditional search engines (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo) and personal assistants (Alexa, Google Voice, Cortana) are optimized to provide answers to simple requests, i.e.: “what’s the weather like in Texas”, “what the best Indian restaurant in town”, or “who won the last World Cup” - there is no service capable of helping users accomplish more complex requests such as; “how do I get hired as a full-stack developer at Airbnb”, or “how do I find a long lasting partner”.
    Although for every complex goal there are hundreds if not thousands of possible paths to achieve it, Mench believes there is always an optimum path which can be deduced via continuous iteration by a large community of contributors (as in the case of Wikipedia).
    The process of reaching the required consensus to determine an optimum path for any given goal or intent is called “mining,” and those that contribute to its discovery are called “miners.”
Next, I'm going to ask you a series of questions to determine if this position would be a good fit for you.
Based on your answers, I may run short quizzes to verify your proficiency level on the various skills required for this job.
