How many times have you set in an interview and wondered how the candidate in front of you was invited to be cross-examined for a position with your company? How often have you wished you could have a say so in who was eligible to be interviewed for a vacancy without feeling as if you were being set up for a blind date with destiny and your company’s success? Better yet; what would the people that work for you consist of if you knew more about them before you ever met them in person? These questions of professionalism and your curiosity can both be satisfied as Gild’s smart recruiting software looks to revolutionize the way we find the candidates we feel will fit in.
Upon hearing about Gild’s platform and its ability to open doors of communication between companies and potential job candidates, I wanted to know how and who I could talk to. Last month I was granted the opportunity to have my questions answered by Luca Bonmassar, one of Gild’s cofounders who serves as the chief product and technology officer. Bonmassar was very transparent in his responses regarding the development and I am excited to share the eye-opening information he endowed me with as the Gild software platform just may be a dream come true for Human Resources departments worldwide.
Both founders (Sheeroy Desai and Luca Bonmassar) have experienced hiring as hiring managers in very large corporations. They have experienced first-hand how inefficient the entire process can be and they firmly believed automation could change it all. Step by step, they started automating all the most repetitive activities, freeing remarkable amounts of time from the sourcing to the interview process.
The two entrepreneurs developed a software platform that automatically scans the open web, finding digital footprints of every candidate in order to discover the best potential prospect. Their entire web portfolio is linked and can detect duplicates and associations for different profiles. For example; if the same person has multiple Twitter accounts, the software can collectively gather the findings to decipher the person helping users (most likely headhunters or Human Resource representatives) understand not only where they are located but possible conclusions regarding their personality. This data ca play a key role in whether to further pursue a candidate based on the role the seeker looks fill. The data is also continually refreshed so recruiters can have an accurate picture of every prospect they interact with.
Unique video features
Gild’s program suite has an integrated video platform that works in any browser without the need for the candidate to download or install any software. The integration allows companies to video interview remote candidates, have them collaborate with the hiring manager through a real time text editor and even share files. The platform also allows the usage of third party video tools.
Why you want it
Because of seamless integrations of searching capabilities, remote interview accessibility, and more, recruiters and hiring managers can have the best-in-class hiring solution that brings them remarkable data intelligence for every aspect of the hiring process. With Gild, recruiters will receive machine-generated recommendations for potential candidates, discover candidates that are actually active in the job market, and quickly filter applicants who are a great match for the positions they have open. From there, The Gild Platform empowers recruiters to engage with, interview and evaluate candidates effortlessly. Other hiring software like Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) do exist, but they are incredibly limited in their scope and capabilities. No other platform manages every part of the hiring process from start to finish or uses so many advanced technologies to streamline the process like Gild’s.
