Jessica Williams leads Mac's List, the leading community of jobs postings in Oregon.

She tells the story of how Mac's List started from humble beginnings. It used to be a simple email list connecting good people to good jobs. Jessica describes the focus on service that helped the list grow.

Now Mac's List operates as a community for employers and job seekers. As name brands like Target and Nike utilize the service, users continue contributing to one another's growth. 91% of the users are college graduates, and some companies search for talent on Mac's List exclusively.

We chat about how the community impacts Mac's List. Jessica shares the lightbulb moment between her and Mac that changed everything. Listen in for a behind-the scenes look at a fast-growing business.
