At Jobvite, our company culture creates a wonderful learning environment. We pride ourselves on having a workplace that’s fun and engaging, and a smart and motivated team that loves coming to work every day and making the magic happen. Today, our Employee Spotlight series showcases Casey Astiz, who has worked as a Business Management Intern at Jobvite, and is currently a Marketing Intern. Her story highlights the growth a Jobviter experiences in as little as one year.
As a hiring manager, your goal is to bring new employees into the organizational flock. But it’s not enough just to fill open positions—you must fill open positions with the best and brightest that the job pool has to offer.To do this successfully, you need a tight talent acquisition strategy.
At Jobvite, our employees are the heart and soul of our operation. They dedicate themselves tirelessly to make our customers successful. No one knows this better than Mai Nakamura, web development manager on our Customer Success team. Mai is a Jobvite veteran. She’s been with the company for more than five years and when she joined, she was employee #43 out of 75 at that time! Over the course of her Jobvite tenure, Mai has witnessed some astounding changes in the company—tremendous growth that has brought more structure, more process, and new people in the necessary roles to grow each department. Mai’s role has changed as well. While she joined Jobvite as an individual contributor, she now manages her own team. Read on to learn.
In my recent series on social recruiting here on Jobvite’s blog, I’ve helped you with specific tactics and approaches to be more effective at recruiting on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. In today’s post I’d like to take a step back and talk more about the big picture of being successful on social media. Thinking back on my own experiences, I can think of specific things I’ve learned from Andy Headworth, Neal Schaffer, Stacy Zapar, Rebekah Radice, and Will Thomson that have all played a key part in making me more successful. By sharing them here, I hope they can help you in turn.

The second age of recruitment marketing is here. After years testing the original nascent ideas that came to market, the industry is now shifting to the prevailing models that have proved success, leaving less productive ones behind.
As CEO of Jobvite, I don’t just lead our company’s product and service innovation—I’m also responsible for understanding the challenges facing today’s workforce. And I take these challenges personally. Not only do they drive us here at Jobvite to develop more functional technology solutions, but they have a great impact on our society at large. In fact, what’s going on in our country with respect to jobs—how we find them, how we create them, and how we’re compensated for them—is increasingly influential to the global economy and the political landscape. That’s why I’ll be posting here on an ongoing basis. I’d like to bring some of the larger issues to light and provide others with a forum for contributing to the discussion.
Thousands of companies around the world rely on Jobvite to source the best talent, boost employee referrals, deliver incredible candidate experiences, and lower recruiting costs. Our customers’ standards are extremely high when it comes to attracting and hiring the best talent on the market.

It’s a hot job market out there and companies are laser-focused on recruiting and bringing in new talent. As the recruiter, you’ve found the perfect candidate, nurtured him or her through the recruitment process, and now you’re ready to close on the hire. Once that candidate is signed and sealed, is your job done? For many recruiters, the answer is yes. If you’re one of them, you’re certainly not alone. But I think you’re missing an important opportunity to connect the dots for your new hire and ensure a great candidate experience turns into a great employee experience. The best way to do that? Partner with HR to ensure a smooth and successful onboarding process.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve been named an Applicant Tracking Solutions (ATS) Category Leader by GetApp – a place to review, compare, and evaluate business software solutions.

In today’s competitive economy, your skilled employees are at the heart of your organization’s success. Competition for those employees is fierce, particularly in a robust job market. And inevitably, some of those employees will leave your company for other opportunities. In fact, in February 2016, 3 million people voluntarily quit their jobs. Are you wondering why your prize employee just quit? One of the best tools for figuring that out is often done totally ineffectively–the exit interview.
At Jobvite, our company culture is fueled by the enthusiasm of our employees. We pride ourselves on having a workplace that’s fun and engaging, and a smart and motivated team that loves coming to work every day and making the magic happen. Today, our Employee Spotlight series showcases Weijen Hsu, our Senior Software Engineer and Big Data Wizard who works hard, plays hard, and magically delivers great work with a smile.
HR professionals know the importance of company culture. It engages employees, boosts morale, and even helps with recruiting great talent—but only if that talent knows about the culture. And who can talk about your culture better than the employees who live it day-to-day?

The interview may very well be the most critical part of the hiring process. While the goal is to find the best possible fit for the position and your company, the interview process is also a chance for you to communicate about your employer brand. And the interview is often where your candidate forms a lasting impression of your company. It’s a chance to ensure your candidate has a great experience. In fact, our Job Seeker Nation study found that nearly half of candidates said that the interview makes the biggest impact on their impression of a job.
Any company looking for high-tech talent knows that it’s harder than ever to attract the highest-quality candidates. Old-school tactics no longer work, so companies need to learn how to fine tune the hiring process to attract and retain the brightest employees.
Over the course of the last three months, thousands of HR and Recruiting professionals attended 16 in-person events in the U.S. and the UK. Speakers from Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list shared their insights on employee engagement, talent acquisition and culture over coffee and bacon. With the help of our sponsor, Jobvite, the Glassdoor Roadshow brought together so many experts in the talent acquisition space and opened up the conversation for many organizations about how they can make their offices the best place for their employees to come to work every day.
From Uber to Airbnb, Instacart to Postmates (and beyond), more Americans than ever are active in the gig economy. Increasingly, this is becoming more than just a side project — 56% of those who have participated in the on-demand economy considered it their full-time job. And as the app-based service industry continues to grow, this number will likely only increase, indicating a significant departure from the traditional 9-to-5 job and a major evolution in the economic climate of the future. Learn more about the who, when, where, and why of the gig economy in our latest infographic below.
