E9 LT Ladino Bryson with vCandidates and Ben Johnson with Arizona Web Pro

As Jennifer Burwell and Kyle McIntosh interview member after member of the MAC6 community on these shows, wanting to support each other through these current tremulous times seems to be a common theme.

It’s no wonder we love listening to the MAC6 Community Connection Radio Show and Podcast every week. This episode featured LT Ladino Bryson with VCandidates.com and Ben Johnson with AZ Web Pro.

Both VCandidates.com and AZ Web Pro have been well-positioned to help support business owners and employees during this COVID crisis. Listen for the freebies they are both offering right now to help people! They are amazing!

One of our favorite quotes during the show was when LT said, “stop, breathe and make a list of a few next steps. Just find a baby step and move forward. Get out of your head and start moving your feet.”

vCandidates.com is changing the way career transitions happen by creating a positive connection between technology and the human touch. We are a private, exclusive and alternative career advancement platform that connects you, if you’re in a job search, with vetted recruiters and staffing agencies who will seek you out, keep you informed and will be there to support you during the entire job hiring process.

If you’re a professional recruiter or staffing agency, we provide you with a recruitment database of pre-screened candidates who are seriously interested in and well-prepared to find their new career opportunity.

If you’re an employer, you can provide employees a goodwill, employer-branding gesture in times of heightened workforce reductions by extending your employee experience through a 3-month candidate offboarding subscription to our platform.

vCandidates is a subscription-based SaaS platform, a private, confidential platform. Through our Boot Camp program and vCounselor support (former HR and recruitment professionals), which includes a personality test and culture questionnaire, candidates will have a robust profile, be well-prepared for the job search process and will know what they’re looking for and how to interview and work with recruiters and staffing agency personnel. And, our recruitment software will enable on-going digital communications between the recruiter and candidate.

How are we able to this? Because our founder was a recruiter. We understand the problems that plague recruiters and hinders job seekers from being found when searching for their next career opportunities.

Kyle McIntosh

With a background in marketing, in various for profit and not for profit companies, Kyle McIntosh wondered, “How can I pair the passion and commitment to community progress of a non-profit with the sustainability and reach of a for profit company?” From this question and perspective a mission evolved to tear down the false distinction between the two sectors and to promote companies with Conscious Capitalism® business models through MAC6.

Kyle is the President and Creative Excitant of MAC6.  Day to day, his main operational role is on the “spaces” side of the business, focusing on creating thriving communities in the commercial office buildings, the co-working space, and the co-manufacturing space.  The other role that he plays is that of EOS implementer, working with clients to bring the Entrepreneurial Operating System, from the book Traction® to their businesses.  Additionally, he sits on the boards of Conscious Capitalism Arizona, telling the stories of good businesses in Arizona, and The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, sustaining Tempe’s quality of life and keeping our community and economy vibrant.
