Make Hiring Decisions Together With 360Candidate

Collaborative hiring decisions can be a challenge. Everyone on the hiring team needs to hear the same information for all the candidates in a timely manner. Organizing the process is tricky. Once you increase the size of the candidate pool, the process becomes even more challenging (and time consuming, and expensive).

360Candidate, founded by Andrew Jacobson in 2012, is an online screening service creating a more collaborative environment for hiring teams. You and your team can review candidate profiles easily on all platforms and devices. Candidate information is customizable to include video responses, third-party references, written responses, brag books, social data, and more.

The service provides many useful features to make your hiring decisions easier:

Collaboration. The service makes it easier for you to make joint hiring decisions. Your hiring team of up to 10 people can work together to collect feedback and ratings of candidates.

Social Media. Since 94 percent of recruiters use social media as a hiring method, 360Candidate makes it easy for you to access social media information from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to review candidates.

Accessibility. With a large hiring team, it’s difficult to get everyone together at once. 360Candidate is available around the clock and on all platforms.

Collect Almost Anything. A lot of details go into a final hiring decision. You need more than just a resume. This service provides access to employment history, educational history, transcripts, brag books, financial models, writing samples, programming code, candidate photos, and more.

A Wide Scope. It’s difficult to narrow down candidates when so many apply for one position. 360Candidate allows you to screen up to 50 candidates per position, making it easier to find top applicants.

Video Responses. Start the interview process now by customizing up to five questions for candidates to answer by video response. Each member of your team can browse through these more efficiently than you would by conducting multiple interviews.

Written Responses. Written communication skills are just as important. You can also customize up to five questions for candidates to answer in writing.

References. Once you’ve interviewed candidates, one of your final steps might be to check their references. Collect up to five independent references per candidate.

360Candidate has three pricing structures for companies and recruiters. These break down to pro (three months for $500), advanced (one year for $5,000), and business (one year for $10,000). All users get the same features.

With 360Candidate, you will know significantly more about potential hires such as their cultural fit, professionalism, and articulation, without having to schedule an interview, pick up the phone, provide transportation, or spend your limited time and resources. Get started by visiting
