SimplyHired is a free job board with plenty of extras. Between their job description templates for employers and the online resume builder for job seekers, they go above and beyond other online job boards.
With a platform that mirrors full-scale search engines like Google and Yahoo, SimplyHired provides a user-friendly interface that aggregates job listings from across the internet – including from company pages and other online job boards. Employers can also post new job openings directly to SimplyHired, either through the website or via the handy mobile app. This results in a job search engine that currently boasts openings from 700,000 unique employers.
If you’re new to the online hiring process, SimplyHired makes it easy with their “how to hire” guide. They also provide standardized job description templates for those who aren’t sure where to begin as well as helpful tips and tricks for editing your job descriptions and maximizing your online exposure.
With SimplyHired, employers only pay for qualified applicants. You can track applicants through every step of the recruitment process, all the way from initial screening and interviewing to the final job offer. Their pay-per-contact approach ensures you only pay when you’ve determined that a candidate’s profile meets your needs; it also eliminates the need for a monthly subscription or annual contract. However, since these prices can fluctuate based on various factors – including the job title, the industry, and the geographic location – it’s difficult to determine your actual costs ahead of time.
SimplyHired isn’t ideal for companies that already have a full-scale HRIS or CRM system in place. Additionally, their free job posting service doesn’t apply to all staffing or recruitment agencies.
SimplyHired has job postings from Amazon.com, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Microsoft, GE Corporate, American Express, and Kellogg Company.
SimplyHired integrates their own HRIS, which offers employee onboarding, time and attendance tracking, document signing and storage, benefits administration, and reporting. A zapier integration is also available but still in beta.
Employers can post job listings on SimplyHired for free, but they also have a pay-per contact pricing model. This starts at $9.99, depending on the job title, industry, and market competitiveness, and only requires payment after you’ve reviewed a potential candidate’s resume or application.
SimplyHired is best for SMBs that need access to additional features, such as candidate screening, job description templates, and salary tools. It’s also great for connecting candidates with temporary or entry-level jobs.
Because SimplyHired is an online platform, employers can create a free account and start posting jobs immediately.
SimplyHired has a comprehensive knowledge base with helpful and informational articles. If further help is needed, customers can submit a request to their support team.
SimplyHired was founded in 2004 as a way of connecting employers with qualified candidates. It’s currently available in 24 different countries and in 12 languages. Owned by Recruit Holdings Ltd., the same company that owns Glassdoor and Indeed, SimplyHired has quite a bit of internal support and guidance as an online job board business.
Not only does SimplyHired aggregate its job listings from 100+ online resources, but it also distributes any job listings made on their site to various job boards within their distribution network – including Indeed. This ensures the maximum amount of exposure on some of the internet’s largest and most popular sites.
