In today’s candidate-driven market, employers find it challenging to attract the right talent as job seekers have numerous opportunities and options to choose from. Recruiters and hiring managers who wish to hire highly skilled candidates and stay ahead of the competition are increasingly seeking ways to enhance the candidate experience.

Unlike most recruitment solution providers who cater entirely to employers, iHire is breaking with the pack and utilizing an innovative approach that accelerates the hiring process by delivering a better candidate experience. With their collection of industry-specific communities and websites, iHire has created a powerful network of qualified professionals and employers. “Our technology platform consists of 56 industry-specific niche job boards that help both employers as well as job seekers achieve their employment and hiring goals quickly and easily,” affirms Steve Flook, President of iHire.

“By pairing a great candidate experience with specific roles in an industry-focused setting, employers are able to effectively find the qualified talent that matches their required skill set. Recruiters and hiring managers who post jobs on iHire’s industry-specific communities see a much higher view-to-apply ratio, and we deliver 5x more qualified applicants,” says Flook.

Beyond advertising jobs, iHire offers simple hiring tools for employers to help them fill open positions. With iHire’s nationwide resume search, employers can identify top talent using a variety of filters to find candidates. For those companies who have constant hiring needs due to high turnover rate or are simply always looking to fill a particular position, iHire has built a top-notch automation tool—Job Wrap. The tool gathers all the job ads from the employer’s website and automatically posts them on the appropriate iHire communities, helping them to reach out to more applicants while saving time and money.

iHire’s user-friendly hiring tools and network of over 10 million candidates across 56 industry-focused sites are supported behind the scenes by a data-driven culture and dedication to innovation. It is this approach that sets iHire apart and helps employers sort among thousands of active and passive candidates to find the right talent.

For job seekers, iHire has created a candidate marketplace, an online job portal powered by their proprietary iMatch technology that enables professionals to search for relevant job openings from across the internet in a single place. iHire’s distinctive industry-focused job search engine gathers job information from thousands of sources, filters out the best job opportunities, learns candidate preferences, and delivers quality matches to job seekers.

In the current employment climate, where resume content is instrumental to securing interviews, iHire offers proven resume tools that help applicants to optimize their resumes and increase the chances of getting selected by recruiters and hiring managers.

Finally, iHire’s technology platform allows job seekers to apply from any device.“Mobile traffic has been rising steadily for years, and any job board or hiring solution that relies solely on desktop users will be left behind,” states Flook.

To elaborate more on iHire’s products and solutions, Flook cites a scenario where MSPCA-Angell, a non-profit organization for the prevention of cruelty to animals, partnered with iHire Veterinary to fill their positions with qualified, career-focused talent in the veterinary industry. With the help of iHire’s Job Wrap solution, MSCPA-Angell advertises approximately 140 jobs at any given time. MSPCA-Angell has seen a 14 percent view-to-apply rate from iHire Veterinary traffic—nearly twice the industry average. “They specialize in finding people looking just in that area, have a great name, and are a national board. It’s very nice that iHire is niche,” said Colleen Stanton, Recruiter at MSPCA-Angell.

As a growing company at the forefront of the employment technology space, iHire is focused on expanding their product offerings by leveraging machine learning to provide the best possible talent management and job search solution. Their industry emphasis and candidate focus makes them unique, but their commitment to analytics, data, and innovation truly sets them apart.
