What is 133T?October 9, 2017
“What’s up with all this 133T (LEET) stuff?” “What exactly IS 133T?”
I get asked these questions every day. I figure it’s time now that I finally explained!
133T, to me, is many things. On its most basic level, 133T is the name of my company, and the name of the software I created. But 133T is also an attitude – a way of life! – for both those who use it, and those who work to make it possible.
As 133T’s founder, even I have a difficult time occasionally in trying to explain it to people. I get overly excited and can’t find the right words! 133T is my life’s work, and next to my children, my proudest creation. I could go on and on and on about 133T forever!
But, for the sake of brevity, I’m going to try to boil 133T down to three basic points: what it is, who it’s for, and what we stand for.
What 133T Is
133T (pronounced “leet”) is a new job platform created for both job seekers and job employers (recruiters). I won’t spoil ALL the details about the software itself — as I plan to write an entire post about it soon! – but it basically boils down to this:
We’ve created the next generation “job board.” But, unlike most job boards that simply set-up a platform and leave the job seekers and employers to figure out everything on their own (at a high cost!), we’re with you every step of the way. 133T works to give job seekers information and tools to help them move ahead, while creating a solid backend process for employers to hire more efficiently.
Everything is fully-automated for ease-of-use, and our customizable subscription plans, at flexible rates make it so that ANYONE can use 133T to their advantage – whether you’re looking for a job or looking to hire. 133T is perfect for the “average Joe” looking for work as well as all business types: small, medium, or large.
Which brings me to the next section…
Who 133T Is For
“I hate you, Daddy!” was NOT what I wanted to hear from my youngest son, but that’s exactly what he said. His reason? I was spending too much time on my computer, looking for a job, rather than spending time with him.
It made me realize what’s truly important in life – that I had to reorganize my priorities. And, in a moment that can only be described as an epiphany, I realized that there are SO many other hardworking individuals out there who wish they had the luxury to do the same thing.
Job hunting stinks. There’s no other way to say it. If you’ve ever been on the hunt, or are currently on the hunt, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Sometimes it feels like we work harder when we’re LOOKING for work than when we have it! That’s just not right.
When you spend hour after hour, day after day, week after week, turning in applications and resumes, you simply have no time for yourself, let alone your family or friends. And when you get no calls back? Well, the whole process can seem pretty futile…
This is why my team and I created 133T. We wanted to create a job application process that was EASY and left the job seeker with time for themselves to focus on what’s truly important to them in LIFE, not just work.
However, 133T is also for businesses.
I like to use the term “The 133T Difference” sometimes. Being a business owner myself, I can relate to businesses that are spending an arm and a leg using the hiring platforms out there today. It’s tough for local businesses to pay outrageous prices for these platforms – and, frankly, it’s unfair.
Due to these frustrations, I was driven to create a platform that’s fair. I decided to offer a Lamborghini for the cost of a Ford. THIS is what I call “The 133T Difference.”
I’ve created a platform that works for YOU. A hiring platform that allows you to scale your budget on the fly and pay as you go. 133T’s goal, as a hiring software, is to provide quality and ease-of-use while keeping our innovations affordable for EVERY business to use.
What 133T Stands For
Now that you’ve gotten to know us as a software, it’s time to get to know us as people.
133T is a team comprised of hard-working, positive-minded, individuals with more heart than I can possibly describe. We all work as a single unit, striving toward one huge goal: Helping YOU.
We’re all big believers in education, and helping others achieve success. Whether it’s through the free articles we provide on this blog, or through an education platform that offers knowledge and provides the certifications you need to move ahead (without spending your life savings or going into your 401k)!
We will be working closely with Save the Children, helping them through donations from our profits, to provide children around the world with educational tools.
We also will be working closely with local homeless shelters, helping those who have nothing to dust themselves off and get back on their feet. Whether that’s providing them with much-needed education, a clean suit for job interviews, or simply offering a listening ear.
At 133T, our entire team works tirelessly, every day, to put others before ourselves. We stand for giving people time for what’s important to them. We stand for positivity and endless improvement. We stand for job seekers who are tired of the grind and for helping employers hire that perfect that employee and not spend a fortune.
We stand for YOU.
Welcome to 133T. We’re happy to have you here.
