Resfly – Lightening Fast Hiring

Who has time to submit help wanted ads to a dozen or more online job boards these days? With Resfly, hiring managers can post to all the most popular job boards with one single click. In mere minutes, a manager can be sorting through applications from qualified candidates and coming up with a short list of applicants to interview for the job.

Recruitment firms, staffing agencies, and internal hiring managers can all use Resfly to increase the number of submissions they get when posting job openings online. Just create a job description like you normally would – making sure to include the title, category, location, and salary – along with a screening question that all candidates should answer when submitting their resumes online. The new job ad you’ve created will be posted on more than 20 popular job boards, and you’ll be given a link to share with job seekers following your company on Twitter and LinkedIn. You can also publish job listings on your own branded company portal. Any resumes that come in can be browsed and sorted through from within the Resfly platform, and your hiring team can work together to rate the applicants whose experience most closely meets your company’s needs.

One of the features that helps Resfly stand apart from other job posting web-apps is its analytics capabilities. Using analytics tools, hiring managers can see how many job seekers are visiting their postings and whether those visitors are completing the applications they start filling out. Any noticeable hang-ups in the pipeline can be adjusted to increase the number of submitted resumes and applications.
