2019. Zoho Recruit enabled ‘Apply with LinkedIn’
Zoho Recruit has become a LinkedIn Talent Solutions Partner and now allowing recruiters to incorporate the “Apply With LinkedIn” button on all their job openings. This integration makes the job application process a complete breeze for candidates. Clicking this button will auto-populate all the common fields on the application with information pulled from their LinkedIn profiles, significantly reducing manual data entry. AWLI can also help minimize user input errors (especially on mobile devices). Replace the process of manual filling of candidate application forms for all your job openings with AWLI integration.
2018. Zoho Recruit integrated with five new job boards
Recruiting service Zoho Recruit recently integrated with five job boards: Hirist, Reed, Nexxt, Total Jobs, PNet. Job boards are not just a place for recruiters to post requisitions. Rather, they have transformed into dynamic pages where candidates maintain resumes so that recruiters can find them with ease. Consequently, choosing the right job board is more important than ever for attracting the right talent.
2017. Google launched recruiting service Hire
Google launched a new service that helps businesses more effectively manage their internal recruiting process - Google Hire. Like other alternatives, it offers businesses a cohesive applicant tracking service that’s deeply integrated with G Suite to make it easier for businesses to communicate with their candidates and track their progress through the interview process. Earlier this year, Google launches its Google for Jobs initiative and its job search feature in Google Search to help job seekers find the right job for them. Now it’s launching this new tool to help businesses manage their candidates. The missing piece here is giving businesses tools for managing job posting — and maybe posting them directly to Google’s new jobs widget in Search. As the company pointed out when it launched its AI-powered job search engine, though, it has no interest in doing this and is instead partnering with major online job boards.
2016. Randstad buys recruitment portal Monster for $429M
Randstad Holdings, an Amsterdam-based human resources and recruitment company, to acquire job hunting portal Monster for $429 million. Monster will keep its brand and will operate as a separate entity, but the bigger idea here is to consolidate different aspects of the recruitment and employment industry for better economies of scale and a “portfolio of HR services,” in the words of Randstad. Jacques van den Broek, CEO of Randstad, said that Monster is a natural complement to Randstad. The transaction is aligned to bringing labor supply and demand closer together to better connect the right people to the right jobs.
2016. Hiring service SmartRecruiters raises $30 million
Because managing a large pool of job applicants can be cumbersome, AI-powered recruiting service SmartRecruiters thinks its software has the right tools to keep you organized in your candidate search. Now SmartRecruiters is getting a $30 million funding round in addition to the $25 million already raised. The service counts clients like Square, Atlassian and Equinox gyms, who use SmartRecruiters to manage job postings and communicate about prospective employees. While there is a slew of competition from other hiring software platforms, including Jobvite and Brassring, SmartRecruiters developers believe that the space is large enough for multiple players, since countless companies need help with hiring.
2016. Jobandtalent gets $42M to mobilize hiring for SMEs
Jobandtalent, a startup touting its matching technology to automatically surface potential job candidates for employers (and vice versa), has closed a $42 million Series B round. It’s also transferred its attention from enterprise recruitment needs to SMEs where staff turnover is faster and there are more jobs in play. Arguably acceleratingly so as technology contributes to creating shorter term work gigs. After all ‘on-demand’ can imply temporary or even momentary need. The free-to-use hiring platform has a new business model too: opt-in staff management services where it can take care of recruitment and HR related admin for SMEs — from generating employment contracts to managing payroll to paying related taxes — charging a take rate from the hire’s payroll for this service (it’s experimenting with the exact percentage cut at present).
2015. Recruiting service Resumator rebrands as Jazz
Recruiting service Resumator launched back in 2009 and was first focused on getting the word about an open position out and managing the incoming resumes. Over time, however, it has grown into fully-featured recruiting platform. So the company has decided that it’s time to reflect this change in its name and it’s now going by the name of Jazz. Over time, Resumator put the focus more on who to hire, using a data-driven model, and that’s what Jazz now also centers around. Using this model, the hiring company first creates a profile of its ideal candidate that looks at basic aptitude for the job, but also at soft skills like cultural fit and work style. Then, throughout the hiring process, interviewers assess candidates based on this profile. Jazz will offer its service in three tiers. Using the most basic — and, at $149/month, cheapest — tier, businesses can use the tool to put their jobs online, just like with the earliest versions of Resumator. Businesses that opt for the second tier ($299/month) then also get some of the tools that helps them how to hire and those using tier three get all of the features described above.
