Google has officially launched its job listings app and LinkedIn competitor Hire, a few months after its website was first spotted.
The company designed Hire to integrate with G Suite apps in order to make the hiring process easier for small to mid-sized businesses.
Hire makes it easy for you to identify talent, build strong candidate relationships and manage the interview process end-to-end. It integrates with G Suite apps like Gmail and Google Calendar, which more than 3 million businesses use, many of them to drive recruiting efforts. With the introduction of Hire, customers now have a hiring app alongside G Suite's familiar, tools that can help them run a recruiting process.
Hire and G Suite are made to work together. For example, you can:
- Communicate with candidates in Gmail or Hire and your emails will sync automatically in both.
- Schedule interviews in Hire with visibility into an interviewer's schedule from Calendar. Hire also automatically includes important details in Calendar invites, like contact information, the full interview schedule and what questions each interviewer should focus on.
- Track candidate pipeline in Hire, and then analyze and visualize the data in Sheets.
Hire is the latest product offering from Google to address the talent marketplace. In May, the company unveiled Google for Jobs, Google's initiative that's focused on helping both job seekers and employers, across our products and through deep collaboration with the job matching industry.
Now, all U.S.-based businesses under 1,000 employees that use G Suite can purchase Hire. To learn more, visit http://hire.google.com or request a demo at http://hire.google.com/request-demo/.
