Take a moment and think back to the last time you looked for a job. The last time you navigated a company’s career site. The last time you filled out an application and waited patiently for a response. (Okay, maybe you weren’t that patient).
How was the experience? Do you remember feeling frustrated or lost? Could you pinpoint the company’s career page? Did the application have more blanks than a Wheel of Fortune Bonus Puzzle without “RSTLNE” or more instructions than the board game “Risky Settlers Knights and Allies of the Lords’ Dominions of Earth: Pandemic Edition?”
Positive or negative, a candidate’s perception of a company can change based on the application and recruiting process. As recruiters, we can no longer ignore the candidate experience or treat it as an afterthought.
Remember the days of writing a letter to Santa Claus? When you’d sit down with your computer or pen and paper and make a list of everything you wanted for Christmas.
Kids all over the world send letters to Santa ever year. In 2013, the Universal Postal Union expected to receive more than seven million letters from 192 countries addressed to Santa (or his cultural equivalents). That’s a lot of mail for one man.
As an adult the days of writing to Santa but that doesn’t mean you stop wishing. It just means those wish lists are more…practical.
Innovation doesn’t end with a product roll out. At Zoho, we believe it to be a continual strive to keep our customers happy by pushing boundaries to improve ourselves.
Formatted/Branded resume was one of our success stories in the recent past. It enabled staffing agencies to brand resumes and remove candidate contact information before forwarding it to clients. Now, after evaluating the feedback from our customers, we have decided to add a new feature to Formatted/Branded resume – Formatted/Branded resume template.
For 14 years, eHarmony founder and CEO has stood against a white backdrop on our television screens to discuss compatibility.
And while his white hair, suit, and glasses make him look a little more like Orville Redenbacher than a matchmaker, the proof is, well…in the wedding cake.
Since its inception in August of 2000, eHarmony has yielded 600,000 marriages with a divorce rate of only 3.8 percent – a fraction compared to the national average.
So what’s eHarmony’s next move? Matchmaking in the career space.
When eHarmony launches Elevated Careers this December, matching candidates with companies will be like finding soul mates. And like any serious relationship or marriage, Warren wants people to find companies they connect with on multiple levels. He wants candidates to find companies they will stay with for years to come.

“We had been through the ringer!”
Those were the words that Secita Solutions founder Mike Moore used when describing his search for an adequate CRM to use.
“I tried ACT, Sugar, Maximizer, and Vtiger and was tired of looking for CRMs…until I found Zoho. As soon as I did, I started planning big things down the road for Secita because I immediately knew Zoho was going to take us to the next level…and beyond!”
