HiringThing – Find Your Company’s Next Star

As the economy improves, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to find qualified job applicants. HiringThing is a tool that companies can use to find new employees with advanced qualifications, industry experience, and an eagerness to succeed.

The moment a position opens up at your company, head over to HiringThing and post a new job listing. The listing you create can be customized to match the look of your existing website, and it will be posted to dozens of job boards (including Indeed, SimplyHired, and TalentZoo) immediately once you’re ready to publish. All incoming applications can be routed to one central place, and you can streamline communication by scheduling interviews, asking pertinent questions, reviewing resumes, and sharing applicant information all within the HiringThing platform. HiringThing encourages users to create screening questions for applicants. Based on the answers they receive, managers can review and rate each applicant independently before taking the time to meet in person.

One of the most interesting parts of HiringThing is the platform’s Applicant Analytics feature. Managers can see where applicants are coming from, and how applicant volume has changed over time. By tracking referrals and collecting data from their postings, managers can gain insight into the hiring process and fine-tune their recruitment strategies going forward.

Practical Uses:

  • Fill an open position at your company
  • Screen applicants before offering an in-person interview
  • Ask colleagues what they think of particular applicants
  • Find out how to encourage more people to apply for jobs at your business

Insider Tips:

  • Job postings can be embedded in corporate websites
  • HiringThing listings are automatically shared on popular job boards like Indeed, SimplyHired, and TalentZoo
  • Candidates can connect their LinkedIn profiles to their applications
  • Create a referral bonus program to encourage people to share your job postings

  • HiringThing gives companies insight into how people are finding their postings
  • Managers can review and rate applicants from within the platform
