Ascendify emerges from private beta and launches its new social recruiting platform at NACE show in Las Vegas June 12, 2012 and SHRM show in Atlanta June 24, 2012 and aims to improve the way job seekers and hiring managers connect by leveraging their social connections.
Ascendify builds private-label, back-end talent communities for enterprise corporations, university career centers, and government unemployment offices. It’s the only talent community solution of its kind with defined roles for job seekers, hiring managers, recruiters, career counselors, and staff, where everyone has a role in the community to help people connect.
“At Ascendify, we completely reimagined the hiring process and built a community platform that connects people together in a way that’s more social,” says Matt Hendrickson, Founder & CEO. “Ascendify was born social. We built a new platform that makes the hiring process fun for employers and creates a better experience for job seekers. By leveraging Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks, we show how people are connected, making it fast and easy to ask for a referral and network into a new job.”
For enterprise corporations, Ascendify drives down recruiting costs and improves the quality of hires by leveraging referrals from existing employees. For universities, Ascendify increases placements rates for graduating seniors by connecting them to employers through their social networks. For government agencies, Ascendify puts unemployed workers directly in touch with hiring managers.
Ascendify (ascendify.com) is a new social recruiting platform that's transforming the candidate’s experience by improving the way job seekers connect with hiring managers. Ascendify dramatically reduces the time and effort involved in hiring by helping organizations build talent communities that leverage social networks to help job seekers and hiring managers connect.
