At Vouch, we believe in the power of people and our services are tailored to empower candidates and employers. By putting employment references at the front of the process,
candidates are able to have collegues vouch for their skills, yielding highly qualified applicants. Our goal is to improve hiring for everyone.
And we do that in a number of ways:
Candidates: When you get a job using traditional recruiting companies, they get paid for finding you. They keep this fee, even though you do all the hard work of gaining experience, interviewing, and showcasing your skills. They are also usually not deeply knowledgeable in your field, and don't give great feedback on your resume or interviewing skills.
Employers: When you farm the candidate search out to traditional recruiting companies, they will often present candidates who aren't good fits because they don't deeply understand the technology you employ. They also don't have access to the high quality talent pool that Vouch does. And we know as well as you how often they nag with emails and phone calls, stealing your precious time.
Candidates: When you get a job using Vouch, you walk away with money. We recognize that you are doing the hard work, so we give the candidate 40% of the placement fee paid by the hiring company to Vouch. And if you were recommended by someone in the Vouch network, they get paid part of the fee too! We also offer qualitative feedback on your resume and interviewing skills. Additionaly, we offer a matching donation* if you choose to donate a portion of your fee to a qualified 501(c)3.
Employers: When you use Vouch to find candidates, you're tapping into a network of deeply connected professionals. We have personally developed apps with many of the technologies you use, so we understand them. Since the recommendation model is moved to the beginning of the hiring process, we start with higher quality candidates, and don't waste your time. We provide a list of who recommends the candidate, and why they think the candidate is a strong choice.
