Q&A

How do you find great candidates?

We crowdsource the search for talent. When you post a vacancy at TJS, everyone who sees it becomes a potential recruiter thinking about which of their social connections would be a good fit for the job. Our incentive structure encourages users to think who may know a good candidate as well as who may be one. This results in a wide reach similar to searching through 3rd degree contacts on LinkedIn. This wide reach allows identifying great candidates. Two other things come into play. Firstly, only the candidates who are interested in the job will apply, so you will not need to waste time on candidates who may not want the job. Secondly, the referrer is compensates for successful referrals only and we keep track of reputation assigning a lower score to candidates from referrers who have been unsuccessful too often. This discourages referrals of unqualified candidates.

How fast do you find candidates?

The search for the right candidate is a competition among referrers to suggest a qualified candidate before the position is closed. This encourages fast results. The motivation of the referrers is generally improved with a higher referral fee. Finally, getting traffic to your job post at TheJobStack through your own social media channels may be super helpful.

How do you screen resumes?

Each submitted resume is automatically analyzed to determine how well it fits the vacancy. Resumes with low match value can be filtered out. Additionally, we assign a score to each resume based on the reputation of the referrer. Candidates from referrers who have a high ratio of placements to referrals are assigned a higher score. Similarly, candidates from referrers whose candidates never get a job are assigned a lower scored. The candidates are sorted according to the score allowing you to see the best candidates without sifting through numerous resumes.

When do I pay?

You pay after you hire a candidate. You have 30 days from the hire date to make the payment.


Thanks for your interest! A quick intro to TheJobStack is below.

We crowdsource the search for talent. When you post a vacancy at TheJobStack, everyone who sees it becomes a potential recruiter thinking about which of their social connections would be a good fit for the job. We motivate such personal referrals by offering a referral fee that you set when you post a vacancy. This means you determine how much you pay for a candidate. There is no risk for you as you only pay after you hire the candidate, and you have 30 days after the candidate's start date to pay the referral fee.
