vCandidates.com, the first subscription-based digital platform that connects recruiters with qualified and pre-screened candidates, aims to eliminate the need for recruiters to post jobs on boards or candidates to use them when searching for new opportunities. Says LT Ladino Bryson, founder of the Chandler-based company, “I created vCandidates after working as a recruiter for one of the largest firms and running my own small firm.”
A 51-percent woman-owned entity created by recruiters for recruiters, vCandidates.com offers a variety of unique features such as the vCan ManagerTM, which automatically tracks the search, screening, communication and presentation process for both recruiters and candidates.
For candidates, instead of being forced to present skills and personality in a box — also known as a résumé — the platform allows them to control how they present themselves in a completely confidential platform. For instance, they can use video messages to showcase skills and personality, and upload multiple résumés with personalized formatting. Candidates also have the opportunity to work with a vCounselor to optimize their profile.
There are also options available for background checks and personality tests. Additionally, employers may use vCandidates.com as an outplacement package for former employees to assist them with finding their next position.
