Selected is a must! We made our first hire within weeks of signing up. Every time I log in, I find a new batch of candidates ready for engagement. Each profile is succinct and clear. One click to get connected, most candidates respond within minutes! The staff at Selected is super responsive.
Selected/Greenhouse integration streamlines communication with candidates and cuts down on the back and forth between connecting with them and moving them through the hiring application process. It saves countless hours on the time I have to take to cultivate candidates!
In the past, we used Indeed, recruiting firms, teaching fellowship programs, and our online application system to find candidates. But Selected has helped us develop a much bigger pool of pre-screened, experienced, certified teachers than we ever have before.
I didn’t want to have to convince someone to take a job at our school; that’s insulting to our kids. Through Selected, we have successfully hired teachers, a school leader, and a reading specialist who want to work in the Bronx.
I know that candidates are opting into the system and are interested in receiving outreach (which isn't necessarily the case on other platforms, like LinkedIn) and have gone through the system's matching process to be identified as a preliminary fit with our school, so even initial messages I send don't feel like cold or unwanted outreach. Best of all, I am seeing candidates that I wouldn't normally see, regardless of how many hours I spend posting roles on job boards.
We found the candidates Selected had available to be qualified, mission aligned, and smart. Further, the smart and easy to use filters on the platform made going through candidates easy for my team and eliminated a lot of the complexity and stress from the process.
