Google’s New Recruiting App Helps Entrepreneurs Searching for Talent
People all over the globe use Google to find everything. Now they can find employees, too – an article from Entrepreneur India.
In May 2017, Google launched Google for Jobs, a platform designed to link those looking for a new job to potential employers. Aside from this, the company’s search engine is one of the most powerful for undertaking job searches online because it allows people to find opportunities across a multitude of platforms some of which include LinkedIn, DirectEmployers and even Facebook, among many others.
But, since then, Google has taken its professional matchmaking technology to a new level, giving candidates and employers alike the chance to meet the right people at the right time, all in one place. Not only this, the company’s new platform, Hire, is designed to offer both parties a seamless experience from the moment communications commence to the moment a hire takes place.
In my most recent YouTube show on the Murray Newlands Show, I met with Google employee Berit Hoffmann to discuss Google’s Hire in more depth. According to the website, Hire is a recruitment application that allows companies to better recruit candidates through with G Suite. It gives big and small companies alike the chance to:
- Identify new talent
- Communicate with potential candidates
- Organize interviews
- Create full assessments regarding candidates
Here are some questions that Berit was happy to answer regarding Google’s new recruitment platform.
How does Hire help entrepreneurs?
“Great, well, I’m excited to be here. So Hire is a recruiting application that we launched back in July.” According to Berit, “the way it helps entrepreneurs is that it helps them run more efficiently and more collaboratively. One of the best things it does is help hire great people.”
She went on to explain how the team running the Hire program specifically spent a lot of time with clients in order to fully understand how they’re currently recruiting new team members. During this research, the team found that companies across the globe are using a lot of Google products to run a variety of recruiting activities.
