Dice released a Recruiter Profile feature that it said is designed to bring transparency to the candidate’s career management process while helping recruiters increase their visibility.
Dice Recruiter Profile allows employers and recruiters to create enhanced profiles and link them to posted jobs. The idea is to encourage the building of long-term relationships with candidates who want access to information about the companies or who want recruiters to contact them..@Dicedotcom launches Recruiter Profile to "bring transparency" to tech's career management process. Helps showcase recruiters, too. #HR #HRTech #Recruiting Click To Tweet
From the recruiter’s point of view, the profile provides a place to showcase their strengths and expertise, present a photo and highlight their technology focus by posting new, hiring needs and upcoming events.
Art Zeile, CEO of Dice parent DHI Group, said technology candidates want more detail about potential employers as they consider their career path. “By adding this layer of personalization to our recruiter profiles, employers will be able to grow their talent pipeline and recruiters will have the best opportunity to stand out among their peers,” he believes.
The recruiter profile is designed to help technology employers with:
- Recruiter Branding: The personalized profile and job links are meant to tell candidates more about the recruiter and the employer, which Dice hopes will open up dialogue between organization and tech pro and lead to better matches for both sides.
- Candidate Trust: Employers can post information about their company, helping candidates to feel informed, supporting transparency and encouraging long-term relationships.
- Tech Highlights: Dice is a job board focused on technology, of course, so the profile helps showcase the tech specialties of each employer and role, helping candidates make more informed decisions about which positions to pursue.
In April, Dice added an anonymous email feature so that candidates and employers can keep their identities private as they reach out to each other toward the high end of the funnel.
Dice Private Email automatically hides candidate’s personal email addresses when they make their profile visible, and allows them to unsubscribe from messages they deem irrelevant. Over time, the system uses feedback about why they unsubscribed to refine which opportunities users see.
