Poached, the industry lead in hospitality job boards, launched in Portland in 2012. It now operates nationally, with large cohorts in multiple major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The Poached mission is to staff restaurants, bars, and hotels, connecting qualified individuals with their ideal roles — not a small feat in an industry that has a turnover rate of early 70%. Notable clients include Shake Shack, Kimpton Hotels, Pok Pok and household names like Thomas Keller (The French Laundry) and Grant Achatz (Alinea). Poached also connects with culinary schools and spearheads its own scholarships.

As part of their commitment to making the hiring process less of a “life-sucking proposition” (Poached CEO Kirk Thornby), Poached has given their platform a makeover, and she’s strutting her stuff with new and streamlined search functions. Whether you want to sling craft cocktails or manage the front of house, Poached presents you with the options closest to you first. To narrow down options by field, simply click the corresponding icons for bar, floor, barista etc.

And how fast do you see your results? In a tenth of a second. Simply upload your resume or create one in Poached and you’re ready to go. The best part is that once you’ve applied for a job, your next applications only take two clicks. All you have to worry about is sharpening your knives or ironing your apron.
