There are many websites that help job candidates and companies with available positions come together. Hired Next is another option available to both sides of the hiring equation. Job seekers can create a profile on Hired Next that includes a resume to entice potential employers. Users can also upload a video pitch to stand out in the sea of available candidates. Employers have just as many options. They can locate suitable candidates by selecting specific skills required for the job. Custom filters allow employers to simplify the searching process and filter out anyone who does not qualify. User resumes are very professional looking, with a clean lay out that can help draw the attention of employers offering better positions.Show more screenshots »
HiredNext.com was created to help users find employment and employees that meet their needs. The Hired Next team wanted to create a tool that allows companies to find individuals who can become assets to their business while individuals improve their careers through better employment. The application was featured on Killer Startups and continues to grow.
Hirednext.com was shut down in 2012.
There are many job related websites out there and many offer very similar tools in their own way. Hired Next is not much different, however that is not to say that the application isn’t useful. A lot will depend on how much the site can grow its user base. All the basics are available, including attractive resume layouts, along with a few extras such as the ability to upload a video pitch.
The HiredNext website entices new users with a clean layout and gentle blue and white color scheme. The hues are kept light for an overall low key, yet stylish design that works very well for a site with a professional focus such as Hired Next. The profiles are very easy to update and the template designs help simplify the process of building an attractive resource to show to potential employers.
A new user can register as either a job seeker or an employer. A blue “create account” link can be found in each corresponding box along the right hand side of the homepage. The user can click the link that corresponds with their desired account type. Job seekers are asked to provide a username, password, email address, first and last name, address, zip code, date of birth and optional phone number. Employers are asked to provide much of the same information, as well as a company name, federal ID and optional primary, secondary and fax number.
Most job seekers and employers want to meet without spending a great deal of money in the job or candidate search. Hired Next caters to its users by allowing them to register for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges for creating an account. Anyone can stop by and register within minutes so they can begin searching for candidates or building their resume. This is a great resource and the free access may encourage some users to maintain their resumes on Hired Next. Hired Next is still in beta, so there is a chance that a paid membership may be offered in the future.
HiredNext is a great tool for anyone searching for a job or someone to fill a position at their company. The system is easy to use and relatively flexible so users can create attractive resumes that highlight their strengths.
