AURORA, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Digi-Me and iHire have formally partnered to offer iHire customers digital job videos to enhance their postings. Digi-Me’s job videos give 3x the SEO while also providing better visibility and conversion rates.
Search Engine Optimization is critical to any online recruitment strategy, given that 80% of job seekers start their search on Google and Google indexes video 53x higher on a search. Search engines instantly recognize Digi-Me’s video player as a valid content provider, which allows customers to rank multiple times on the 1st page of Google in less than a few hours. The relationship between Digi-Me and iHire allows hiring organizations to leverage iHire’s targeted, category-specific boards in combination with the power of video.
When a candidate watches a video about an opening versus just reading text, they learn and retain up to 60% more information about a position. This clearer understanding translates to candidates more accurately opting in or out of the application process based on fit.
Digi-Me’s mobile functionality allows candidates to view and apply for jobs directly from their phones by either pulling information from social media profiles to populate application forms or allowing candidates to upload résumés from online file storage sites, such as GoogleDocs.
“It is imperative for companies today to strategize their recruitment efforts in a way that is targeted to specific types of talent, which is what job seekers are looking for,” said Lindsay Stanton, Chief Client Officer of Digi-Me. “Digi-Me’s integration with iHire allows employers to create deeper brand recognition, improve candidate engagement, and drive higher-quality applicants.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Digi-Me to increase our customer offerings,” said Tim Hawk, iHire’s Business Development Director. “The Digi-Me videos will enable our clients to expand their reach while also enhancing their screening process and attracting more qualified candidates.”
