The Resumator is a recruiting platform for small to medium sized businesses that provides a robust suite of features to help employers hire more confidently. The Resumator is an innovative company founded in January 2009 and based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. DreamSimplicity had the pleasure of interviewing Don Charlton, Founder and CEO of The Resumator, at the All About the Cloud conference in San Francisco (video below). Don made such a great impression with us that we caught up with Laurie Barkman, The Resumator's Marketing Director, to learn more about their product and what makes them unique in the recruiting market.
You do not have to be an HR professional to use The Resumator. The platform was designed to be simple and easy to use, so companies that might not have a dedicated HR employee on staff can still hire with confidence. And it looks like their design worked, with The Resumator being the recruiting platform of choice for some high profile companies, like Mashable, HootSuite, Klout, Bit.ly, Atari, Pinterest and a whole lot more.
When we say robust, we mean it. The Resumator covers every angle you can think of and even those you haven't. Here are our favorite features we think you should know about.
We have all seen the dull and confusing recruiting platforms from companies like Taleo. As an applicant, maneuvering around the site to find job openings and actually apply can be a bit frustrating. With The Resumator, you can easily build an attractive customized hiring portal for your website. Take a look at Swrve's job site. You can post images and videos, and your job openings are front and center so people are not deterred from applying. Even better, applicants don't have to create a login to apply! When people upload their resumes and cover letters, The Resumator portal organizes all the applications online, so you are not bombarded by emails in your inbox.
A lot of recruiting takes place on social networks. The Resumator makes it easy to promote job openings on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook and track those efforts. Go one step further with The Resumator's Employee Referral Program, increasing social job referrals by the people you already work with and trust. Through The Resumator you can provide each employee with their own tracking links to monitor how often job openings are being shared and whether they are bringing in actual applicants. If these social features aren’t enough, The Resumator has its own Facebook application to create a custom Facebook page for promoting your jobs and accepting resumes. And don’t worry, The Resumator has got all angles covered with job board syndication, posting listings on free job boards across the web with one click.
Maybe your interviewer took notes, maybe they didn't. How do you keep track of everyone's evaluation of each candidate? The Resumator makes it very easy with post interview surveying that tracks all results in one place. When all interviewers take the same survey, evaluations are streamlined, making it easier to compare candidates. With The Resumator’s integration with Smarterer, you can evaluate the skills of each candidate to make sure their skillset matches their resume. Aggregating interviewer perceptions and skillset test results allows any professional to hire with more confidence.
The Resumator has all the organizational and collaboration tools to keep you and your company on the same page during the hiring process. The platform also features recruiting analytics to gain insight into the effectiveness of your recruiting campaigns. The great thing about The Resumator is that you can use it when you need it. This is perfect for small and medium sized businesses that need the flexibility of an application that matches that of their hiring schedule.
