“Our team is always updating our processes and templates to improve applicant engagement and reduce interview ‘no shows.’ Our best efforts could not provide anywhere near the results that we have experienced using the Autopilot process. Now my calendar effortlessly fills with phone screens and in-person interviews that follow through with their appointments.”

Jamie Sutton


“CareerPlug has been an excellent tool in helping us find quality employees and grow our business. The ability to manage multiple jobs and all applicants on one site makes the process so much more efficient. CareerPlug also has some great tools to help find the best candidates. We highly recommend CareerPlug as an effective way to both find great applicants and as a way to screen, interview, and hire the best people.”

Quent Blodgett


“Whomever came up with Autopilot deserves a RAISE! It has become a game changer, we went from around 10-20% of applicants doing phone interviews (and that is after playing phone tag and not responding to my texts) to probably 60-70% of applicants completing a phone interview. This has led to a higher conversation from interview to hired for quality applicants. Autopilot has saved me about 3 hours a day chasing applicants, playing phone tag and texting just get that first interview scheduled.”

Jared Amram

Operations Coordinator

“Our partnership with CareerPlug has been one of the most impactful changes we have made within our organization. Our applicant flow has increased tenfold and the prescreen questions, assessments, and onboarding platform have all made it easy and painless to narrow the search down to the most qualified candidates and hire the best fit.”

Nick Sorgan

General Manager

“CareerPlug’s ability to post to major job boards with one-click has significantly boosted my applicant flow. I received more applicants within my first two weeks than I did all of last year.”

Chris Igou

VP of Business Development

Chris accidentally started a 20-year career in franchising when he was 18 years old and took a job painting houses for College Pro Painters. That job turned into the ownership of his first franchise (a house painting franchise). While at Monmouth College in IL, he operated his business, played on the varsity football team, and studied to become a teacher.

The taste of entrepreneurship and desire to coach others led Chris deeper into franchising, working with a few franchise brands helping them grow their businesses. He lived in the Chicagoland area his entire life until recently moving his family to Austin, TX.

In his free time Chris coaches youth sports, especially youth football, and spends as much time as he can with his wife and 2 children.
