Recruiting is at its heart, a personal business. But as job seekers and recruiters turn to the web to conduct this business, some of the personal aspects are lost in the cloud. It’s difficult to learn about a person’s background without a conversation where that information is shared. So how do you add the personal into online recruitment? And how can a more personalized search help you target the candidates you want to reach?
Simply Hired works to bridge the gap between candidates and recruiters online. Information about job seekers is integrated into the site, such as their social graph, previous work experience, and past site activity. Based on this information, we deliver a highly personalized search experience to our users. This provides recruiters with superior candidate targeting to drive the best-matched candidates to your positions.
Simply Hired features that provide a personalized experience:
1. Who Do I Know®
Simply Hired’s Who Do I Know feature allows job seekers to leverage their LinkedIn and Facebook networks to get referrals for job openings at hiring companies. This feature gives users an in-line view of their connections at companies returned in the job search results and the option to message these connections. Simply Hired also personalizes a user’s search based on information found in their social profiles.
2. Personalized Search
Over time and with continued use, the Simply Hired search gets smarter—displaying relevant, personalized results based on a user’s previous job title, keyword and location searches.
3. Returning Users Homepage
After a user has performed a few searches on Simply Hired, their recent searches are displayed on the homepage when they return to the site. This provides the user with a personalized job search experience and saves them time when they return to simplyhired.com to continue their search.
4. Email Alerts
Simply Hired users can also create email alerts to receive all of the relevant jobs added to the site each day. Sponsored jobs are given priority placement in relevant email alerts, enabling employers to stay top of mind for these active job seekers.
Job seekers don’t only use their computers to look for jobs – they want anytime, anywhere access. As mobile usage increases, so does the number of people using mobile devices to perform their search. Simply Hired offers apps for both iOS and Android, as well as a mobile site. Employers can tap into these tech-savvy candidates through mobile job sponsorship as well as Simply Apply, which allows job seekers the ability to quickly and easily apply to jobs from their phone or tablet.
These personalized search features provide employers with superior targeting, and the ability to reach the best candidates for their jobs.
