I was just having severe technical difficulties and I was panicking because I couldn’t figure it out.

I couldn’t hear a thing. Sure sure He purposely joined after the cat cows. Everyone

we’ll get you next time, Matt, for sure. Well, thanks for kicking off this new segment with us. We’re excited to have you and very excited to start to introduce more of the Hirewell staff to LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube. Perfect. So you guys are having me on to talk about the Illinois Michigan game last night, Emily, or what?

our first topic of conversation. Sorry, technical difficulties. Again, that’s so weird. So weird. I must have lost you, but you’re back now. That’s what matters So, as we mentioned, segway I mean, there was really no better person to start with then Matt the founder of Hirewell he is our first recruiter employee of the week.

So Matt Masucci, how do you feel about some rapid fire questions? I gotta be honest. I’m a little nervous, but I was, pushing, the, both of you to, mix up these shows and I liked the concept of the recruiter of the week And you were struggling to fill up the first slot.

I figured I kind of had to do it right. A lot of pressure, a lot of that’s right. It’s all right. So here’s what we’re going to do. We are going to put two minutes on the clock. We are going to go through our questions, Ryan and I are going to go back and forth. I’ll ask a question. She asks a question, answer the questions as quickly, but mindfully as possible.

And we’ll see how many we can get through in two minutes. Are you ready? I’m nervous but I’m ready. Clock starts. Now, how long ago did you found Hirewell almost 20 years.

What’s your favorite thing about working here? All of the people and our clients,

if you weren’t recruiting, what would your job be? Oh God. Good question.

I don’t know. It’s all I’ve ever known. I was an accountant for about two years and I was terrible at that. So I got into recruiting. recruiting’s your dream job? We love it, Matt. what are you currently reading or watching? Ooh, good question. watching. Just finished Ted lasso, thought that was great.

and then trying to catch back up on Schitt’s Creek. Oh my God. A+ both shows What are you looking forward to most post COVID. Okay. Seeing all of you in person. Oh Matt You’re so sweet. He just wants us to go easy on him. Don’t fall for it Go. If you could attend any concert right now, whose would it be? Ooh. Good question. So I think I had tickets to two shows last year that got canceled.

I think one is black keys. One was Guns N Roses So I don’t, think those would be my all two favorite, but, uh, you know, those were, I think would be fun. just one of the many things that unfortunate got canceled in 2021 What is the one food that you can’t live without? And you have 35 seconds left. Good question.

probably, pasta, anything Italian, but,

oh me too and what’s your favorite holiday? Uh, you know, I, I, I’m always a big fan of 4th of July and I think that’s kind of an underrated one. I love the weather. I love kind of all the different things happening, but then a secondary is, Thanksgiving and Christmas are tied just for the family aspects.

Then final question. What actor would you choose to play you in a movie about your life? I don’t know. This is tough. I, get confused for a lot of people. and some are very complimentary and then some are not So it goes somewhere in the middle. I think the one that, I blank on his name, but it’s the guy who plays, bill Dunphy from modern family.


That’s awesome. Well, I mean, can everyone give, Matt Massucci a round of applause and I hope y’all are clapping it up at home as well. You nailed our first rapid fire question. Passed with flying colors, I’d say, and we didn’t even go easy on you. Well, I appreciate it. And thanks again for doing this.

It’s wonderful. And I’m excited to see the future ones so excited. And if you are watching and you have questions that you want us to ask our fruit future employee recruiter of the week, please make sure that you write them in the comments. I’m sure this is just going to be. Flooded with, our own employees wanting to ask some funny questions, but we’ll take it.

We’ll take it anyway.
