Jobs Near Me - candidate geolocation

Recruitment Marketing Public

Introduction

Jobs Near Me is the candidate geolocation feature that allows candidates fast access to a collection of jobs the system recognises as being near their current location. Not only does it enhance the candidate experience by making it that much more personalised, because the location information also maps to the candidate's individual record in the CRM, this now allows for targeted marketing and communications based on location, too.

The feature is on by default, appearing alongside a job search field (below) or the full job search block:



When a candidate clicks on the button and opts in to sharing their location when prompted by their browser pop-up, they will then be presented with a collection of jobs near their current location. In addition, that candidate location information is sent to their CRM record as a recent location. The location is accurate to around 100 meters and is significantly more reliable than the IP geolocation process that occurred previously.
