MALAYSIAN job-hunting startup SlingApp, a brand owned by Beneflex Sdn Bhd, has announced a new feature called Talent Search that allows recruiters to search and contact active job seekers who qualify for their job openings.
The fee to use the Talent Search feature starts at RM12.88 per Talent profile. In addition, SlingApp announced new and affordable job recruitment advertising packages of RM199 for Standard Post and RM399 for Featured Post, to replace its current introductory prices.
SlingApp plans to introduce the Talent Search feature as well as the new pricing plans in November. The startup has won a place in Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity's (MaGIC) coveted Global Accelerator Programme, in the third cohort that is currently running.
SlingApp chief executive officer Teh Tian Ji, says, “The Talent Search feature will equip recruiters and employers with a tool to quickly look for talent without having to wait for applicants to submit applications. This process is far more efficient and easily done.”
As of now, there are more than 50,000 active job seeker profiles available on SlingApp, and the startup aims at growing the number to at least 100,000 by year end. So far 240,000 jobs have been applied for since its inception in 2017. Job seekers can sign-up and use SlingApp to look for a job at no charge.
“We are a relatively young platform but already we have a proven track record where 240,000 jobs have been applied for using our app. SlingApp is a viable platform for recruiters to look for candidates to fill job vacancies. Recruiters, especially from SMEs, should take advantage of the new and attractive pricing plans when they take into effect in November,” Teh explained.
Unlike most recruitment ad platforms in the market, those who advertise on SlingApp will see their recruitment ads stay live for 60 days to allow more time to collect applications. For the Standard Post package, recruiters will get 20 guaranteed applicants and for Featured Post they will get 40 guaranteed applicants.
Recruiters who use Talent Search can get the applicant profiles or curriculum vitae (CV) of those who are looking for similar jobs. Details such as work experiences, skills and education are included for recruiters to make immediate hiring decisions.
SlingApp is a job-hunting application that instantly connects job seekers to jobs nearby. Applicants swipe right to apply for jobs and get interviewed.
SlingApp makes hiring more efficient by reducing screening time by up to 70% through the use of its Auto-Interviu feature, as well as, by giving access to a pool of talent on a single platform.
