[ibimage==30772==Large==none==self==null]Today's interview is with Eddie Lou, CEO and Co-Founder, Shiftgig.  Shiftgig is the (yeah we italicized "the")  online community for the service and hospitality industries.  Eddie started out slanging burgers at a Jack-in-the-Box, so he knows about workin' the shifts.  He and his co-founder wanted to create a proactive platform for potential employees and hiring managers to court each other.  The result is a database of over 100K jobs  and workers nationwide. And while Eddie knows the service and hospitality industry, he's also crazy versed in VC and fundraising, having spent some time working at OCA Ventures before blowing out Shiftgig.

This week's music feature is Chicago's own The Symposium.
