Jobaline: Find Qualified Candidates for Job Openings
May 30, 2012
Monster.com, Craigslist, LinkedIn, networking – there are so many places to look for find a candidate for a job opening. The process can be stressful, frustrating, and exhausting for everyone involved.
Jobaline co-founders Miki Mullor and Bill Davidheiser want to make this process a lot easier for recruiters and hiring managers in 3 major ways:
- Jobaline sends only active candidates (meaning candidates who applied for a specific job), not passive candidates, to recruiters. Each candidate has expressed interest in the recruiter’s job and is waiting for a phone call.
- Candidates “connect the dots” for the recruiters, explaining how they qualify for the job, so recruiters don’t need to read irrelevant resumes. This is a big time saver for recruiters and a unique feature for Jobaline.
- Jobaline works with some of the biggest job boards in the country, giving customers a deep reach to active job seekers, at any profession, risk free.
The inspiration for Jobaline came from an awful job search experience. As Mullor recounted:
“I applied for a job at a large corporation and it took them six weeks to get back to me. When they did, the hiring manager apologized but said that by policy he had to read all 600 resumes he received before he could call anyone back. That made me realize how much noise recruiters need to deal with when they post jobs online. We started Jobaline as a tool that helps recruiters and qualified candidates connect quicker over job posts.“
Another Jobaline innovation is their new pay-per-pick pricing model – the first performance based job posting pricing model. Plus, Jobaline is easy to use and set up – it takes 2 minutes to get started. “Our goal is to cut through the complexities and give recruiters a tool they can use immediately.”
Jobaline was a showcased startup at our Tech Cocktail Seattle mixer last week.
