Becomes the only hiring platform to deliver a fully integrated and global job advertising solution, enabling businesses to source 5x more candidates
San Francisco – September 16, 2014 – SmartRecruiters, the company that empowers the new way of hiring, today announced the launch of its expanded job advertising solutions. These offerings directly address the pain of companies everywhere that leverage advertising to source candidates: lack of data-driven guidance on where to advertise their positions across thousands of job boards, lack of time and energy to research and manually post to job boards, lack of applicants due to poor candidate conversions and lack of integration with their applicant tracking systems to determine true cost per hire. The SmartRecruiters job advertising solution, with an industry-best 44 percent click-to-apply rate and based on guidance from over 70,000 companies, is the most effective offering in the industry for companies to easily target and engage quality candidates.
“One of our main recruiting challenges is making sure that our hiring budget is properly allocated,” said John Skeffington, Talent Acquisition Manager at IT Savvy. “SmartRecruiters has not only simplified how we choose and post to job boards, but now we are also able to track granular information that details the success of our advertising dollars so we can better fine-tune future recruiting activities. The ability to manage this in one central platform also lets us to invest more time in hiring, rather than searching for and managing multiple job boards.”
