Review of Jobvite

March, 2013

Rating: 4/5

In a word, Jobvite is focused. As a vendor, their offering is highly targeted, very good at social sourcing.

Jobvite provide social sourcing software - a way to discover potential hires and take them through your recruitment process. Their solution includes Referral, which uses social networks, Engage, a way to maintain your talent pool, and Hire, an applicant tracing system.

Before you choose Jobvite, here are the key things you need to know.

First, Jobvite are one of the real leaders when it comes to social recruitment software. They provide an industry-leading way to get referrals for job candidates, based on social networking. They help you manage and track talent, and hire the best people.

Second, great customer and industry engagement. One thing that we’ve found many industry leaders do is engage their customers well, understand their needs, and respond quickly. This is an area that we feel Jobvite really excels - solving customers’ problems, and developing new functionality that makes a difference to businesses.

Finally, through its social features, applicants and hiring managers alike may not understand who has access to what information through Jobvite. I recommend you get an understanding of how company information and applicant information is passed around, and who will have access to it, and make sure your organisation is well-informed.

If you’re looking for better ways to manage recruitment, I recommend you look at Jobvite.
