This week we released the ability to tag applicants and search based on these user-generated tags. While the possibilities are endless, below are two examples of how tags can be used to organize your applicants –
Organize applicants throughout your hiring process

This integration with CrunchBoard, along with our capability to recommend high-performing, relevant job boards, will ensure that CrunchBoard is recommended and easily accessible to you for Internet and tech jobs. Your jobs will then automatically appear on TechCrunch.
We focused the last two weeks of product development in building and improving features that help you promote your jobs better, faster so that you can reach more job seekers. We are proud to announce our new SmartRecruiters Careers App that can be used to display your jobs on your Facebook fan page.
Improving your sourcing strategy: On June 17, 2011 we announced performance-based job board suggestions, which was the identification of boards that attract the best candidates for your job opening. This week we extended this functionality to show you 10 relevant boards instead of 5. We have also fine-tuned our algorithm and are now ordering the boards such that you see the top performing board at the top of the list. You can also influence the suggestions by editing the criteria that governs the suggestions – industry, function and experience level. Simply click on the edit link and update them to find the best job boards for you.
Inviting hiring team just got easier: At SmartRecruiters we believe that hiring should be social; after all, hiring for the team requires the input of the team. To ensure this, we let you invite members of your hiring team. We also provide three different levels of access – Standard, Extended and Admin – which determines the jobs and applicants that the team members can access. We have now made granting this control to each team member easier by detailing out exactly what each these levels includes. You can view this information from within the invite workflow itself, making it simple to decide what level of control you want to grant to the team member you are about to invite into the system. Simply hover your mouse pointer over the help icon alongside the user role dropdown and get more information about the user roles.
At SmartRecruiters we are continuously working on improving your job posting experience; it is the most important task our users do in SmartRecruiters. This week we focused on recruiting service add-ons and managing job ad versions so that you can re-post jobs with minimal friction.
Direct Integration with Simply Hired and Bright.com: We are happy to announce that we are fully integrated with Simply Hired, a free job search engine, and Bright.com, a free job board. With these additions, you can post your jobs to as many as six free job ad aggregators, in one click.
Apply with LinkedIn: A key to finding great candidates is making your application process as frictionless as possible. In general, applicants do not like to fill-in multi-page and time-consuming application forms. The confirmation of this trend can be seen in the rapid growth of Facebook and LinkedIn.
Enhanced Job Widget:SmartRecruiters provides two ways in which you can advertise your jobs on your website. We provide a ready-to-use careers page that you can easily link to your website to instantly create a branded careers page. If you already have a careers page on your website that you love, you can simply embed a list of your open jobs to this page using the SmartRecruiters job widget.
