Strategy + Key Directives

Design

Starting from scratch, create a user-friendly platform connecting candidates, recruiters, and jobs.

Development

Set up and integrate all data with Client’s new CRM, ensuring data consistency and speedy loading.

Support

Deploy site to two regional servers while maintaining data integrity with original sources.

New account Onboarding Process

To help new candidates get registered as easily as possible, we designed an interactive onboarding process. The candidate’s account is saved immediately upon submission, allowing him/her to return later to complete their full extended profile.

Profiles for Candidates

7 sections, 57 total data fields including conditional logic. Candidates can save their progress, and return later to completely fill their data.

Instant Job Search for Candidates

Full list of available jobs, with dynamic updates by combination of filters. Registered and logged in candidates have access to more job info, as well as ability to apply for jobs directly.

Profiles for Schools + School Recruiters

In a separate section, school recruiters have their own profiles, affecting their access and data throughout other parts of the site.

Instant Candidate Search for Recruiters

By combination of 6 data fields, using information entered in candidate profiles. Only candidates with client consultant approval appear in the search results, ensuring all candidates are vetted and key info remains confidential.

Bullhorn CRM Setup + Integration

We configured 151 data fields across 4 object types in our client’s newly registered CRM (Bullhorn). All data is API-integrated between the website and the CRM, with updates reflected in real time on both sides.
