What is Switch? / What are the benefits for an employer to enroll on Switch?
Great questions. Switch is a recruiting app that is making hiring simple and straightforward. Upload open positions in minutes, and browse through qualified candidates Switch recommends based on your job description and keywords. Swipe right to "like" a candidate, and swipe left to pass. Once there is a mutual interest, Switch connects you directly with the candidate via email or chat. That's it!
How does Switch make candidate recommendations?
The simple answer is that we match your job description and keywords with the candidate's years of experience, background, skills and location. The magic really happens behind the scenes, where Switch powerful algorithm analyzes users' behavior and look-alike matching, for super accurate results - but that's the complicated stuff.
How do I set up an employer profile?
Why is my profile important? What's important to include?
Switch wants to make recruiting more human -- and put names and faces behind the companies who are hiring. Make sure to include your company’s email address, first and last name, headline (or title), location and job function when creating your account. We make sure that your profile won't be accessible to the candidate until there is a match and you give us the permission.
