Candidate sourcing

Where do candidates come from?

We bring candidates to the Hired marketplace through a variety of methods:

  • Because candidates love the experience they have with Hired, most of our candidates come as referrals. We started in 2012 and have seen 3M+ candidates come through on the platform.
  • Our marketing team does a really good job building a candidate community through thought leadership webinars, in-person events, newsletters, and advertising campaigns.
  • We also have a Hired rewards program that uses points and gifts to incentivize candidates to refer their friends to the Hired platform.

Additionally, in order to supply our marketplace with millions of highly qualified tech candidates, we make use of a large variety of channels, both paid and unpaid, including (but not limited to):

  • Google Search and Display
  • Facebook + Instagram newsfeed and stories
  • YouTube videos ads and content
  • LinkedIn Ads
  • Twitter
  • Reddit
  • Software Engineering and Tech Industry Newsletters + Sponsorships
  • Podcasts
  • Partnerships with a variety of non-traditional education organizations, professional communities & networks, career services, and upskilling organizations
  • Co-Marketing with large, household name customers to use their name and ours to drive interest
  • SEO and organic online ranking
  • Job board online sites 
  • PR, Blogs, and other content
  • In-person events, including sponsoring large national conferences and small intimate meet-ups 

...and much more
