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?

Two options: You can either download the iOS app, or go here to set up an account. Create a short profile, provide us with your open positions and you'll be ready to swipe away.

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 email address, first and last name, headline (or title), location and job function when creating your account. And know that your profile won't be accessible to the candidate until there is a match and you give us permission.

How do I create a job posting?

Easy. Click here on your laptop or desktop, and follow the steps below:

  • After logging in, click on the fourth tab in the top menu, 'Postings'.
  • Click the 'Create new job posting' button.
  • Fill out the form, focusing on job function, location, salary, skills, and click 'Save' to confirm changes.

A Switch team member will review the position and publish it, and you will receive an email notification once the job is live.

How do I edit my job postings?

Easy too. Click here on your laptop or desktop, and follow the steps below:

  • After logging in, click on the fourth tab in the top menu, 'Postings'.
  • Click on the position name you want to modify.
  • Make the necessary changes and hit 'Save'.

From the 'Postings' menu, you can also perform a number of other tasks using the icons to the right of each posting. You can 'Share' a posting to any of your social accounts; 'Preview' the position to see how it will appear to candidates in the app; 'Duplicate' a posting if you have a similar position; 'Pause' a posting if you are making an offer on the position; and 'Expire' a posting if you are no longer looking to fill the position.

What happens when I match with a candidate?

You get connected! An email introduction is triggered after the match, notifying you and the candidate. At this point, you can view additional information about the candidate and get in touch with him or her directly - via email or chat. Just the two of you talking, no one else.

How do I communicate with the candidates I match with?

You have three ways to connect with the candidates. You can:

  • Use the Email Notification we deliver once the match is made through our private email server.
  • Use the 'Matches' tab within the desktop app. Scroll to the candidate you want to chat with. At the bottom of his or her job card, you will see an option to 'Message' within the app, or 'Email' the candidate directly.
  • Use the 'Messages' tab within the desktop app. All of your matched candidates are listed on the right-hand side. Select the one you want to chat with, and start a conversation here. You can also choose to email the candidate from this tab. Select the candidate, then select the envelope icon in the top right-hand corner.

Do you have candidates from all over the U.S.? From other countries?

Most of our job seekers are concentrated in major urban areas like New York, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago. We also have candidates from all over the U.S., and from multiple countries as well.

What are the costs?
