In today’s labor market, the battle for talent has never been fiercer. As summer approaches, the scramble for hires, particularly among the younger demographic seeking internships, becomes increasingly competitive. We, at Wirkn, faced this same challenge as we sought to recruit our Summer 2023 team of brand ambassadors. And so, we turned to our own platform and ate our proverbial dog food.
I’m thrilled to share that, in a matter of days, we’ve successfully hired four brilliant interns, using our own platform to ensure a fast and smooth hiring experience.
We designed Wirkn to make the hourly hiring process straightforward, and it proved its worth. Wirkn accelerates hiring by reaching out to a broader audience, streamlining the hiring process, and cutting down on the time typically spent sifting through countless applications. And guess what? Our new hires, having applied via Wirkn, already have firsthand experience with the platform.
Wirkn’s innovative candidate video feature is a game-changer. As the applications rolled in, the videos allowed the team to triage the numerous qualified candidates we received quickly. Being able to see and hear from candidates directly helped us gauge their communication skills and overall personality fit with the company culture.
Our new intern, Hannah C, shared her experiences with the platform. “Wirkn is a breath of fresh air for retail and restaurant job seekers—refreshingly easy, intuitive, and stress-free. I never knew applying for jobs could be as simple as scrolling through social media and using my video. I’m telling all my friends about it!”
But here’s the kicker. We achieved all this across just two locations in two cities! This success story points to the massive opportunity that lies ahead for businesses of all sizes. By leveraging Wirkn, companies can transform their field recruiting processes and deploy tools across their multiple locations that attract, engage, and convert more candidates.
Imagine the potential for businesses to hit their KPIs faster and more effectively by transforming their hiring processes. With Wirkn, you’re not just recruiting; you’re building a community of like-minded individuals ready to drive your company forward.
Our vision at Wirkn has always been to revolutionize the hiring process, creating an environment where the right talent meets the right opportunity. Our recent hiring success serves as a testament to this vision and has ignited our zeal to keep transforming the frontline hiring landscape, one business at a time.
