How to Attract the Right Candidates with Clinch

Meet Scott. Scott is the owner of a newly launched tech startup in the heart of Silicon Valley. As a startup owner, Scott has to build his team from the ground up.

Unfortunately, getting his company’s name out there and attracting applicants is easier said than done — until Scott discovered Clinch, a talent acquisition platform for growing companies.

Whether you’re a new business owner like Scott or simply looking to expand your team, attracting better candidates starts with creating an attractive employer brand.

How Clinch Works

Clinch makes it easy for companies to build, manage, and promote employer brand, beginning with a mobile-ready careers page that features engaging photos, employee insights, and the like. What’s more, careers pages can be published to multiple locations, including the company website.

For employers: Most companies don’t have an applicant tracking problem. What they do have is an applicant attraction problem. Fortunately, attracting the right job applicants has never been easier.

Clinch takes you step-by-step, from editing photos to writing copy to building a multi-channel recruiting network using job boards, social media, and your company website. In addition to attracting better candidates, Clinch helps you understand where those candidates are coming from with actionable insights.

As Clinch helps you build your candidate pool, make better hiring decisions with a shared team inbox and team integration.

For job seekers: Job seekers can learn more about a company through a dynamic careers page, as well as find out about job openings via job cards.

Pros of Clinch:

  • Clean and easy-to-use interface.
  • Integrated with Slack to give you hiring updates in real-time.
