By clicking on the Simply Apply button of a job listing on Simply Hired, candidates can submit a resume with the ease of one click. Candidates can also add a personalized cover letter or edit information directly from mobile devices. The simple user interface makes this process efficient and immediate.
“The world is becoming an increasingly connected place and consumers are demanding the ability to be productive on the go. With Simply Apply, job seekers can now apply for jobs instantly, whether they are in the backyard, on the subway or at the airport,” said Gautam Godhwani, Co-founder and CEO of Simply Hired. “With such an efficient way to apply for jobs, Simply Apply provides a streamlined way for employers to get more qualified candidates.”
Job listings with the Simply Apply functionality already receive more applications on Simply Hired than those without it. For employers who have job listings not yet enabled with Simply Apply, taking advantage of this functionality is easy. Employers can simply opt in to the new feature through the current Simply Hired user interface. In addition, Simply Apply enables employers to sponsor jobs on mobile devices, offering another way to target the growing and highly attractive pool of candidates using mobile technology.
“We work with hundreds of employers who offer job seekers mobile content, and traditionally it’s been extremely difficult to turn mobile traffic into meaningful conversions and actual job applications,” said Eric Holwell, Director of Interactive Strategy, Bayard Advertising Agency. “Simply Hired’s new innovative, yet simple technology enables mobile candidates to quickly and easily apply for jobs, making mobile traffic meaningful and measurable rather than just a number.”
