Start IT up: GetListed

Does budding recruitment start-up GetListed have what it takes to succeed in the dog-eat-dog start-up world?

In this new video series ZDNet Australia looks to Australian entrepreneurs to hear about their technology-based business ideas. Host Phil Dobbie talks to the founders, dissects their ideas and gives viewers the chance to vote on whether it will be a hit or a miss.

The series starts with Bosco Tan, co-founder and CEO at This new venture works on the principle that recruiters will find the best person for a job by leveraging their own online network. Rather than relying on the judgment of recruitment agencies, employers can call on the recommendations of personal connections.
