Frequently Asked Questions

Is HireSphere an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?

HireSphere sits somewhere between job boards and an Applicant Tracking System. HireSphere takes resumes from your job boards sites like Indeed, Dice, Monster, etc through the uploading of resumes or by your forwarding the resumes to HireSphere. We are pursuing integrations with popular job boards sites to further simplify the process of getting resumes into HireSphere.

There is flexibility in how resumes will go into your ATS. You can upload the profiles to your ATS which you find promising, based on the ranking we provide.

Does HireSpere have Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)?

When creating the job in HireSphere, we provide a field called Job ID so that you can easily match HireSphere records to your ATS.

HireSphere is investigating integrations to popular Applicant Tracking Systems to further simplify the process for you.

What makes us different from other recruitment software on the market?

There are two major types of recruitment software: job boards and applicant tracking systems.

Job boards such as LinkedIn, Dice, Indeed, Monster, etc include the resumes of active candidates and in the case of LinkedIn both Passive / Active candidates. These services provide bulk candidates.

Applicant Tracking Systems helps improve the efficiency of the recruiting process by helping shepard applicants through the hiring process. This includes basic filtering out of candidates who don’t meet basic requirements, acting as a place to store notes on candidates, accept / reject candidates, aid with setting up interviews, etc.

HireSphere is building extensive profiles on candidates, far more in depth compared to what any individual job boards company or Applicant Tracking System collects. With this information we can understand more about the person to evaluate them thoroughly. Using our sophisticated algorithms we will compare each person to the specific job requirements you have. And, as you use our tool over time we will further personalize to your specific needs.

Where is HireSphere available?

HireSphere can be used throughout the world, but is supported for United States clients only. Be sure to follow local regulations when using HireSphere.

Is a credit card required to create an account?

Nope! We want to give you the opportunity to use our tool with ease and without the frustration of having to enter in payment details. Go ahead and use HireSphere for free!

Is my information secure?

Your information is secured using the latest encryption technologies.

We will never sell your data to 3rd parties.

How does the algorithm work?

The algorithm uses an ever expanding list of data points about the applicants being considered to compare against job requirements. This list of data points includes the person's resume, Q/A sites that the person contributed, technical repository sites, social media, and more to get a full picture of the person you are considering hiring.

The algorithm continues to get smarter by continually adding more criteria to define what a good candidate is: qualifications, cultural fit, willingness to move jobs, etc.

The algorithm also gets smarter as it learns what types of people you chose, so future resumes are sorted to your preferences.

Can I upload resumes from LinkedIn?

We accept any type of resume in either Word or PDF format. LinkedIn allows you to download the profile into a resume format. You can then upload that resume to HireSphere.

Is there a sign-up or monthly fee?

At launch there will be no sign-up fee or monthly fee. As we add more functionality, features, support options, etc we will have a tiered pricing model.

How do I find resumes to put into the HireSphere tool?

Most recruiters use many sources to find resumes including job boards like: LinkedIn, Monster, Indeed, Google searches, etc.

We are looking into integrating with job boards to streamline this process

Are there any limitations on usage?

At launch there will be no limitations on usage for the free tier.

What jobs can I rank candidates for?

At launch we have a focus on Technology roles. This is because Technology roles are in high demand, and it is hard to find great talent in these roles. Also, we have to train the algorithm for each role, so specializing on a subset of roles allows us to keep accuracy high. We then will expand into other areas over time.
