New posJobvite Review – Recruiting for Today’s Worldt
Jobvite is a web-based recruiting platform designed for the modern world of tech-savvy, mobile employees and their social networks. Comprised of several separate products that work together, Jobvite provides all the capabilities today’s recruiters need to be productive. These include:
- Employee Referrals that tap into the social networks and leverage your employee contacts to find top-notch candidates.
- Recruitment CRM to find and engage potential future employees even before a position comes open.
- Applicant Tracking and hiring tools for every step of the process.
- Video Interviews for fast early screening of candidates.
- Employer Branding to provide a consistent, engaging story to your candidates regardless of the platform they use to interact with your company.
We’ll look at the Jobvite platform and the products it supports next.
The Platform and Products
The Jobvite platform is a web-based system that hosts the individual services and enables them to work together. Because it uses the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, it doesn’t require you to install Jobvite software on your own computers. You are saved the hassles of hosting and supporting this recruiting software, leaving your team free to concentrate on finding and hiring the right people.
The services you will find on the Jobvite platform are:
- Jobvite Refer – A tool for sharing job openings through social networks.
- Jobvite Engage – Scan social networks and résumé databases for potential hires.
- Jobvite Hire – Manage the entire hiring process in today’s complex market.
- Jobvite Video – An on-demand video interviewing tool.
- Jobvite Brand – Share your company’s story with your candidates.
- Jobvite Mobile Career Sites – Let people apply anytime, anywhere, from any mobile device.
Now for a more in-depth look at each of the products, starting with Jobvite Refer.
Some of the best referrals for new employees come from your current employees. And your current employees each have their own contacts they interact with through social networks. With Jobvite Refer, you enable them to share your organization’s job openings with their social contacts.
But Refer is more than just a way for your employees to forward job listings. They can also set up automated broadcasts to their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter contacts whenever a new job opening appears. At the same time Jobvite Refer tracks their progress and turns it into reports you can use to identify the employees who contribute most to this effort. Custom Facebook applications allow you to identify potential candidates from among your employees friends list.
While Jobvite Refer of course integrates smoothly into the rest of the services on the Jobvite platform, it can also be integrated into any modern ATS (Applicant Tracking System).
Typically, companies only look for potential candidates when they have a position to fill. But with Jobvite Engage, you can find and engage candidates with promising skills in social networks and résumé databases even before you have an open position. This sets you up to fill opens faster and more efficiently since you already have a pool of potential employees to contact.
Engage’s CRM (in this case, Candidate Relationship Management) system lets you gather prospect information from all your sources into a single database. You can keep activity logs to show the history of your relationship with each prospect, then search for the ideal candidate in this system the moment a position needs to be filled.
Finding potential candidates is only part of the work for Jobvite Engage. The other part is keeping these people engaged until you need them. For this, Engage can publish Recruitment Campaigns and track the effectiveness of them. The campaigns you launch can be take the form of emails, or web pages, even social media message broadcasts to your potential candidate pool.
If this approach to finding candidates is new to you, you might want to download the free Jobvite ebook, “How to Build a Rich Talent Pool.” You can find it here.
This is your control center for hiring staff. Jobvite Hire’s Applicant Tracking System provides configurable, automated hiring workflows. These ensure that the proper hiring steps are followed while making the entire process more efficient. It also gives you the ability to search the database of candidates, parse resumes for relevant keywords, and process hiring requisitions and approvals by email. Two way calendar integration with both Microsoft Outlook and Google Gmail prevents scheduling mishaps.
Hire also leverages the most powerful social networks to help with your recruiting. You and your staff can distribute job postings manually or automatically on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. When your employees help you find candidates in this way, everyone wins.
With all that Jobvite Hire can do for you, it could be tough to keep track of everything. Hire provides you with a Home Page Dashboard where you can see all the key aspects of your recruiting process in one place.
Some powerful features of the Dashboard include:
- Role-based widgets. These widgets allow you to view the recruiting process from the perspective of the Recruiters, Hiring Managers, or Employees.
- Action-oriented displays. You can navigate from widgets down to the specific actions that need to be taken for Hiring Reqs, Req Approvals, and other tasks.
- Mobile-friendly implementation. You can work with the Dashboard from your mobile devices as well as from your desktop. There’s no need for the recruiting process to stall just because you are away from your desk.
Jobvite Hire also gives you a set of pre-built templates for reporting on your hiring processes and outcomes, such as social recruiting success, the progress of employee referrals, and much more. If the templates don’t fit your needs, you can create your own custom ones.
How much time do you spend doing the early screening of potential candidates? Jobvite suggests that it realistically takes about 45 minutes to set up and conduct a phone screen of a single candidate. Jobvite Video offers a better, more efficient way to do this preliminary screening. Automated video screening interviews can save you vast amounts of time and effort.
Video is integrated with Jobvite Hire, so it is simple to send out video interview requests to the most promising candidates. The candidate records their video, in a time and place of their own choosing. They simply have to respond to the questions that you selected within Video.
The interview session is recorded and available to the entire hiring team through Jobvite Hire. You’ll be able to screen out weak candidates with the help of your team in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take you to conduct a basic phone interview.
Presenting your brand to potential employees in the most effective way possible can help with your recruitment and retention efforts. Jobvite Brand helps you deliver a compelling story and provides consistency of branding across desktops, mobile devices, and social networks.
Brand builds on Jobvite’s advanced career site framework. With the help of Jobvite’s web development professionals, you will develop a career site that delivers not just lists of open positions, but an authentic branded experience.

Today’s talent is highly mobile. As part of the Jobvite Brand process, you can deploy a branded mobile career site that matches the look and feel of your desktop site.
The sites built with Jobvite Brand offer simple navigation and interaction. Filters allow candidates to quickly search for positions they might be interested in. Your candidates will be able to upload traditional resumes as well as social profiles to display their qualifications. And you can eliminate traditional login processes that drive away candidates before they even finish filling out some annoying registration form.
Jobvite Mobile Career Sites

Finding and hiring new talent is a never-ending job for every business. And the competition for top talent grows ever tougher.
