If there’s one thing we know from talking to our customers, it’s that every staffing firm has unique needs. Even more so, your firm’s needs might look drastically different a year or even a month from today. Maybe you’ve decided to enter a new market. Perhaps you’ve grown rapidly over the last three months.

Or maybe you’re just starting to feel the burn of the talent shortage in a way you haven’t in the past. That’s why it’s so important to be able to customize your staffing technology to meet your specific demands. Our recruitment-centric open ecosystem is designed to let you do just that. Whatever you need, we have it covered. Where should you start? Here’s an overview of some of the many types of solutions offered by our Bullhorn Marketplace partners, based on your unique business objectives:

Source Talent

You need to: find great candidates, get them into your ATS efficiently, and make sure your team has a single source of truth for candidate information

  • Job Board: The “job board” space now spans far more than your traditional collection of job ads. Job Boards offer additional value to candidates themselves (think professional networking sites and services like resume creation) as well as advanced job marketing solutions (targeting specific types of candidates, sponsoring more timely ads, etc).
    Multi Poster: Simplify your posting strategy by working with a solution that can post out to multiple boards and locations. Some of these solutions offer more manual options where you still decide which boards to leverage when, while others take over the strategy for you, dispersing your ads and budget to the best locations.
    Job Board Analytics: These solutions automate the process of measuring your job posting success and helping you to design a cost-effective strategy.
