Personalized experiences make potential employees feel special. From relevant jobs to tailored content, personalization is key.

Engagement – Click, Connect, Converse

Compliance and Accessibility:

Ensuring accessibility for all candidates is more than a legal requirement; it's a sign of respect and inclusivity. Our Carees Sites are WCAG and ADA compliant.

We live in a globalized world. Multilingual support breaks down barriers and opens doors. We have a wealth of experience building multi-ligual careers sites. Take for example which is English and Spanish. We support hunders of languages/locations. 

Social Reach – Share and Shine

Social Media Integration:

Your career site should be connected to social media, letting your jobs go viral (in a good way!). And by that we mean clear CTA to your social channels. Integrating their APIs into your site isn't always a good thing. It can slow your page load down and hurt your SEO page experience.

Employee Advocacy Tools:

Let your employees share and celebrate the brand. They're your brand ambassadors, after all.

Security – The Unseen Shield
