Frequently Asked Questions

When I post jobs with HiringThing, how do candidates find my job?

To raise the profile of jobs you post using your HiringThing account, we’ll help you purchase advertisements on major job board sites — guaranteeing your position is seen by the best candidates. With a single click, you can raise the profile of your job online by posting to Craigslist, TalentZoo, StackOverflow and other job boards. You can also choose to have it syndicated on free job board sites.

Candidates are directed to your HiringThing application form, and when a candidate applies for a position their resume and other key information will be added to your HiringThing account – keeping them out of your email inbox and in our easy-to-use software that helps you easily review, process and rate applicants. Additionally, you can connect HiringThing to your website to ensure all your candidates apply via the same process.

Referrals are a huge part of successful applicant searches so be sure to use HiringThing to broadcast your open positions across social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. And consider starting your own employee referral program, using the tools provided by HiringThing.

How do I connect HiringThing with my website?

Many companies find that their number one source of candidates is their website, so it’s important to connect your HiringThing account. It’s easy! Most of our customers simply link to their HiringThing URL from their website directly, and then customize HiringThing with a logo, company description and color scheme.

For developers, we’ve also provided an easy to use API that allows you to pull a list of jobs for display on any page. Using the API, you can always be sure your website is up to date with the latest information from your HiringThing account.

We are also working on a new widget that allows you to embed your jobs quickly on any website simply by including a snippet of code. Coming soon! Drop us an email if you’d like to be one of the first to try it out.
