Hirewall was created to simplify the hiring process for small to medium businesses from end to end. Especially now, with the current economy where you might have double or triple the number of candidates for a job, this can become a scheduling nightmare for an overworked HR department. Hirewall is an online tool that ensures the best candidates for a job are not only invited to interview, but seen by the right people every time.
At the core of the Hirewall service is an online workflow engine that breaks the hiring process down into simple, discrete steps. Roles can be created and delegated to team members to handle. The system uses email to make sure each step happens no matter how many team members are involved. In addition, it maintains a database of applicants that can be searched through by skill, tag or name. Hirewall will also work if the business uses agents or recruiters.
Having worked at a few small businesses, I know how much of a team effort it is to make sure a job hopeful is properly interviewed in a timely fashion. This sort of tool not only can change this process from an exercise in frustration to a routine matter, but can also re-assure the applicant that the business they are hoping to land a job with works with efficiency and professionalism.
If you find yourself faced with too many applications and too little time, you may want to consider checking out Hirewall. You may discover you have simultaneously solved a problem and spared your company a lot of stress and wasted time.
