NEW YORK — February 25, 2013 — Jibe, improving the mobile and social hiring experience for job candidates and employers with innovative SaaS solutions ( https://www.jibe.com), today announced a partnership agreement with DirectEmployers Association, the leading nonprofit HR consortium of global employers. With this partnership, DirectEmployers members will receive preferential pricing on Jibe’s award-winning products, “Mobile Apply” and “Get Referred”, as well as other Jibe products.
With mobile device usage increasing dramatically, more and more job seekers are engaging with potential employers through their smartphones or tablets. In early 2012, Jibe identified a void in recruiting technology, specifically that ATS’s and ERPs were not able to handle the increasing number of mobile job applicants. At that point, potential applicants were unable to apply for a job from a mobile device.
To combat this, Jibe developed the first solution that allows candidates to submit a complete application from any device — smartphone, tablet or desktop.
“Mobile device usage is on an incredibly steep growth trajectory, now accounting for 13% of all internet traffic worldwide”, said Mike Pauletich, SVP of Alliances & Business Development at Jibe. “At many companies, over a quarter of their job seeking traffic originates from a mobile device. Jibe’s goal is to convert those mobile job seekers into applicants for our clients.”
Through this partnership, DirectEmployers members will be able to provide a superior candidate experience for their mobile job applicants by adding the Jibe Mobile Search & Apply to their .JOBS website or corporate career site. Jibe’s solution allows a candidate to log into or create a new ATS account with the client company, prefill an application from an online profile or cloud-based resume and answer company and job specific questions directly on a mobile device. In addition, Jibe’s solution delivers the application directly into the enterprise’s ATS, CRM or ERP, ensuring that employers convert mobile job seekers into applicants.
“We are always looking for ways to enhance our member benefits and offer access to the very latest recruitment technology. We are excited to partner with Jibe in an effort to provide a superior candidate experience for mobile job seekers,” commented Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association.
