San Jose, CA, December 12th, 2016, Today, GoHire, Inc., a recruiting solutions provider, launched GoBe, a conversational chatbot that helps job seekers find, view, and apply for jobs directly within Facebook Messenger. Chat with GoBe on Facebook Messenger here!
Employers can create customized pre-screening questions, for each job, making it easy for recruiters to prioritize candidates. Additionally, job applications can be routed to specific recruiters, or have their profiles “pushed” to an employer’s applicant tracking system.
“GoBe is a potential ground-breaking solution for both employers and job seekers,” states Jonathan Duarte, Co-Founder and CEO of GoHire, Inc.
Facebook Messenger is the fastest growing messaging app, with over 1 billion monthly active users—ten times the monthly active users on LinkedIn. “It’s clear! The global workforce is already using messaging to communicate, but employers aren’t. GoHire is going to change that,” says Duarte, a 20 year veteran of the HR technology market, and Founder of one of the first Internet job boards, GOJobs.com, in 1996.
“Messaging has one of the highest engagement and response rates, making it a perfect platform for employers who recruit in high-volume, time-dependent, and mobile-first environments,” proclaims Duarte. “What’s missing are the tools for employers and recruiters to leverage messaging platforms.”
GoBe will soon be available in cross-platform versions, for text/SMS, Slack, Skype, and others. GoBe can also be customized for individual brands for employer corporate career sites.
