NEW YORK — March 21, 2013 — Jibe, improving the mobile and social hiring experience for job candidates and employers with innovative SaaS solutions, today announced a new partnership agreement with iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses. The partnership will enable iCIMS’ customers to optimize mobile access to their job search and apply capabilities on iCIMS-powered career portals.
With the dramatic increase in the dependence upon mobile technology, more and more job seekers are engaging with potential employers through their smartphones or tablets. Jibe has embraced the trend and developed the first solution that allows candidates to search for jobs and submit a complete application from any device — smartphone, tablet, or desktop. The cloud-based solution can be configured and implemented in less than 8 weeks and involves little in the way of technical resources from the customer.
“Companies are losing potential candidates simply because they are not equipped to receive candidate submissions from mobile devices. Astonishingly, 90% of the Fortune 500 do not have a mobile-ready career site”, said Mike Pauletich, SVP of Alliances & Business Development at Jibe. “Jibe’s mobile job search and apply solutions rectify this problem quickly and cost effectively.”
The new partnership will give mutual customers the ability to display jobs on mobile-friendly pages and receive job applications from a candidate’s mobile device. While iCIMS’ Talent Platform already allows for candidates to search and apply for jobs on their mobile devices, bolting on the Jibe services alongside the platform allows for a more powerful mobile experience, including mobile-optimized employment application forms, screening questions, and more.
“At iCIMS we believe if you want to win the war for top talent, you have to take advantage of the latest tools,” said Susan Vitale, Chief Marketing Officer at iCIMS, “This means making your job search and application process social and mobile. By partnering with Jibe, we are giving our customers the ability to do just that.”
