Why should I use Blitz?

Do you want more and better applications for your vacancies? Screen and score candidates faster, as a team? Make instant decisions on who to invite to an interview? Build an employer brand as a responsive, accesible company that is quick to respond and truly takes time for interested applicants? Then give it a try, we bet you will love it. We call it "real time recruiting" and it will be the best thing you ever did to your employer brand, give it a try and let the results convince you.

What does it do?

Blitz adds real time messaging to your recruitment efforts and enables you to use that popular channel to communicate with candidates. It gives them a low-barrier, direct communication channel to you and their future collegaues, on Slack. You can use it in job postings, direct search and on your career site. It also assists you in screening and evaluating those candidates, all within Slack, no need for new tools.

How does it work exactly?

For each opening on your career page, you can create a Blitz link or Button with a few clicks. Then use this link on the apply button on jobboards, as a "chat now" button within your job postings, in your direct search communication (e.g. on linkedin) or on your career page. When a candidate clicks on the link, he gets to a (mobile optimized) landing page where he can choose between 2 options: directly get in touch with you via chat or use one of the "classic" application methods (email, application form, etc - whatever you want him to use for that specific job). If he choses to chat, he will be pre-screened and forwarded to a private chat room within your existing Slack interface. You can decide who from your organization should be invited to that chatroom, depending on the job the applicant is interested in.

Won't my team get seriously distracted by all those chats with applicants?

We know about this and specifically designed Blitz to solve this very challenge: offering real time access to your team for candidates whithout distracting this team from their actual work.To learn more about features like automatic pre-screening, candidate scoring and many more, please get in touch.
