Live Recruit Launches New Version of Its Virtual Hiring Event Platform

A game-changer in the recruitment event space, Live Recruit recently launched a new version of its virtual hiring event platform, making it easier for recruiters, headhunters, and staffing agencies to engage candidates and increase employer brand awareness all on a simple and easy-to-use interface.

The event space exploded with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic when many hiring events were forced onto a virtual stage. However, recruiters and candidates have been finding the existing technology clunky, outdated, and hard-to use.

By incorporating Live Recruit into their recruitment strategy, employers are reducing their cost-per-hire, sourcing diverse talent, and shortening time-to-hire, all while providing a world-class candidate experience.

“We knew the industry needed a great virtual hiring platform. Like others in the recruitment industry, we were searching for hiring event solutions and couldn’t find anything that fit our specific recruitment needs,” said Richard Kaskel, Co-Founder of Live Recruit and CEO of Katon Direct, a recruitment marketing firm. “As a result, the team decided to use our 19+ years of recruitment experience to create a virtual event platform that enables talented professionals to work at organizations where they’ll thrive.”

The newest version of Live Recruit provides recruiters with the ability to:

  • Create customized registration pages that show off organizations’ employer brands
  • Engage candidates with an intuitive sign-up process and easy scheduling options
  • Access comprehensive, real-time analytics, giving recruiters a big-picture overview of their talent pipeline
  • Push all data captured to an Excel document or directly into an ATS
