Giving candidates what they want
With our new job search experience, candidates are able to remain in one window to browse jobs, quickly click through a list of openings and see job descriptions in the same window, easily save jobs for viewing at a later time, and finally, apply—giving candidates the tools they need to make smarter decisions about where to send their resumes. In turn, delivering more qualified and informed candidates to employers.
