Online job portal CareerBuilder has launched a free tool called hireINSIDER that helps to remove some of the guesswork from the application process by enabling job seekers to see how they stack up against other applicants for a job. By getting an inside peek into the qualifications of other candidates, job seekers are able to better assess if they are a viable candidate for the job and the likelihood of an employer contacting them.
hireINSIDER aggregates user-generated information from all applicants for a particular job listing, protecting the privacy of each applicant. The innovative technology produces a real-time Job Competition Report, summarizing:
- Current number of applicants for the job in ranges
- Level of education
- Years of experience
- Average current salaries
- Top college majors of applicants
- Top languages spoken
- Employment status
- How many applicants submitted a cover letter
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Premlesh Machama, MD, CareerBuilder India said,“hireINSIDER benefits employers who may not have the time or resources to respond to an increasing amount of applications, protecting candidate relationships and company reputation in the process. By providing the feedback that job seekers need, job seekers are able to better assess if they are a viable candidate for the job and the likelihood of the employer contacting them.”
Employers can also utilize hireINSIDER’s technology to gain a better understanding of the demographics of their applicant pool. Based on the findings, employers can adjust messaging and targeting strategies accordingly.
