Pop Quiz, Monday with Ladan Davia

Ladan Davia

The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun little exam that we love to give to savvy business owners. The examination is not a surprise after all since the interviewee already knew about the questions in advance. However, we can always pretend and have fun with the scenario of a young entrepreneur sitting in class nervously biting on their pencil. They are ready to take a pop quiz on a chapter that they were supposed to read the night before. Instead, they played Metroid all night on their SNES (Oops, this was me in high school). The real purpose of the pop quiz is that this is a fun way to introduce business tips from real-world experiences that you can not learn in a classroom. We want to thank our entrepreneur for being a good sport and volunteering their time to answer a few questions to help our community grow from their knowledge.

I want to introduce you to our guest today who will be taking our Pop Quiz Monday.

Can you please tell everyone your name?

What is your job role?

Tell us about your company?
Beeya is a search engine for jobs that hosts all jobs from other platforms, in one place. We then use AI and machine learning to show job applicants which jobs they should apply for.

What do you love most about your job?
I love connecting with people and solving a problem. Finding a job shouldn’t be this hard, and hopefully, Beeya can help people with their job search.

What motivates you to get up every day and go to work?
I love seeing the difference Beeya makes in people’s lives. I love hearing feedback, even negative, and creating a product that has a positive impact. Innovating is what motivates me to get up and go to work every day.

How do your co-workers inspire you?
They inspire me by bringing new ideas to the table and working as a collaborative group. I love hearing their ideas and seeing what we can come up with together. You always move faster if you work as a team.

How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
We really just talk and get to know each other. I try to bring fun in everything we do so that the long hours we work, don’t feel like work.

What are some of the challenges of your job?
Marketing with a limited budget is always challenging, but we’ve come up with a lot of creative ways to get around spending a lot of money. I think financing is always somewhat of an issue for any small business.

What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
“People only respect what you inspect.” In business, it’s important to inspect every inch of it, especially in the beginning.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting out in your industry?
Have a good engineering team!
