Why should we use EmployerApplication?

Why is EmployerApplication so successful?
Thanks to our direct search with potentially suitable candidates, you can reach applicants before they have worked through countless job offers and potentially come across your job advertisement.

Especially in-demand professionals and executives no longer look for job offers, since they are already regularly contacted actively by traditional headhunters. They are therefore just waiting for the right job offer. We can offer you this proactive service.

Thanks to our concept, you can canvass 2nd and 3rd-tier candidates as well as general employees. Traditional headhunters usually turn down such jobs, as the rate of commission is not appealing. 
How many candidates can be found in career network by EmployerApplication?
Over 24 million in Europe, over 80 million worldwide.
Do you use databases of job boards?
No.
From our experience, this information is not sufficiently up to date to meet our standards. Moreover, these are only one part of the candidate market. Through the business networks, we can see immediately if a candidate changes his/her status to “interested in job offers”. Candidates usually do this weeks before actively searching on job boards or placing CVs. This means that we can get to the candidates for you within a narrow time frame.
Do we have to pay an commission or extra costs?
No.
We offer to search and make contact with suitable candidates for you for a one-off fixed price. This means that there are no follow-up costs to be reckoned with and you can budget your expenses.
Why does EmployerApplication can identify more candidates then our own HR department?
Searching for candidates is our daily business. Manual searches and a knowledge of the individuality of each and every candidate profile make our results even more extensive. What’s more, we also have the capacity and the expertise to carry out this work. In addition, we draw on information that candidates have already sent us for similar positions. This means we can take an even more targeted approach.
Could you consider certain competitors in your search?
Yes.
We look for and contact employees of your competitors for you in a targeted manner.
How do you contact candidates?
The message functions of the various business networks are used for this.
How many candidates will apply for my vacany?
Based on regular customer surveys, we know that the number of applicants can fluctuate greatly. Essentially, the number of applications is determined by the attractiveness of the position and the company.
How do you define the word "candidates"?
Candidates are employees in other companies or university graduates (if these are required), who correspond to the qualification requirements that we have agreed with you. For this, we look for the highest possible coverage between your requirements and these candidates’ details.
What will happen, if you can not identify 20 suitable candidates?
We calculate our services pro rata, whereby at least a basic amount of 50% of the order value (net) is incurred. This basic amount covers our costs for the started search pro rata.
Are there any functions which can not be covered by EmployerApplication?
For positions in the commercial low-wage sector, caring professions, commercial professions such as heating installers, electricians, waiters. If you are unsure, please contact us by email or by phone. We will be happy to prepare a quick search for you free of charge.
