Equest is now distributing to Facebook Jobs

The Blast! Network is a group of FREE job boards and career sites where you can post an unlimited amount of jobs without having to pay a penny to the job boards to publish your open requisitions.


Equest announced this week that Facebook is now part of that network for its clients. This is a great move for a job distribution tool like equest, the more sources they can add to distribute the jobs the better value it provides. Employers will be able to track candidates through facebook messenger or their ATS since Equest has those hooks enabled. The service launches Oct 1st.

This week on we published a comprehensive list of employer branding tools.  From DIY video solutions to review sites and candidate experience tools you can get a full list and download right here:


Onshift announces Text2hire

OnShift® today announced easy-to-use text-based recruiting and candidate engagement software. OnShift® Text2Hire™ automatically engages and communicates with job candidates to schedule interviews, dramatically reducing time-to-hire, minimizing no-shows and increasing the number of new hires. Onshift is an applicant tracking system specifically for the healthcare industry


Good to see ATS vendors launching text features, jobvite also recently integrated Canvas into their software.


Shaqs new job board

On-demand workforce assistance startup Steady has raised $9 million in a Series A funding round led by San Francisco-based Propel Venture Partners with participation from Omidyar Network, the impact investing firm established by the founder of eBay. Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal also contributed to the round and will be joining the team as an advisor and advocate for the startup’s customer base.

Steady’s platform connects prospective workers that want to find on-demand or contract work with opportunities tailored to fit their qualifications, interests, geography and availability. Roseman says it’s a fit for anyone who works an additional job other than their 9-to-5.

The mobile platform also allows workers to manage all these gigs in one place


AllyO, the end-to-end AI recruiter, this week announces the latest advancement to its recruiting solution: AllyO New Hire Check-ins. While AllyO has traditionally assisted organizations and candidates through their entire hiring funnel from “Hi to Hire,” the addition of New Hire Check-ins allows AllyO to be the single point-of-contact for everyone involved across hiring and retention – including recruiters, talent acquisition leaders, hiring managers, candidates, and current employees.

This latest generation of AllyO’s platform enables HR professionals to check-in with new hires several times within their first 90 days on the job by asking customized questions like: “How happy are you in your new role?” and “Do you feel you are well-trained for the job?” The responses provide hiring teams with actionable feedback to improve retention. This new functionality also increases efficiency among HR teams by eliminating the need to manually check-in with candidates on their opinions about the hiring, onboarding and training processes.
