What is Workling?

Workling is the bottom-line boosting, career-building platform that pairs remote-work opportunities at top companies with the proven professionals who have the skills needed to make an instant impact.

Life’s short and we don’t believe in wasting time. So, if you are a hiring manager looking for another site to post an opening and be flooded with resumes that aren’t a fit, or you are a job seeker looking for another site to feed you jobs you’ll never hear back from, we’re not for you.

How does Workling work?

Workling is engineered to connect hiring managers at top companies with proven professionals whose skills will make an instant impact.

Here’s how it works for Companies:

  • 1. Create your company profile answering some standard informational questions about your industry, your company, locations, etc…
  • 2. Create your job openings. The more detailed each job description is, the easier it will be for our AI algorithm to search the candidate database for those demonstrating the skills you need and present you with a shortlist of perfect candidates.
  • 3. Based on their profiles and Workling Scores, you can send an invitation to any or all of the pre-screened candidates to apply for the job and participate in your hiring process. Candidates will receive a message with the details of the job opening and your invitation to apply.
  • 4. Additional candidates who found your openings through a search, will ask for your consideration. Each of these candidate profiles will include their background and Workling Scores, and can be invited to apply.
  • 5. Once candidates apply, the company will be able to communicate directly with them through our chat system and continue with the process.
  • 6. For each job opening, the Workling Recruitment Funnel is your dashboard to efficiently manage the communication with each candidate as they move through the process from initial contact to being hired.

What is the difference between an application and an invitation?

An invitation happens when the company creating an opening reaches out to a candidate from their Workling-generated shortlist directly and asks them to consider their newly-created opening. Candidates can either accept or decline the invitation.

An application is the formal submission of a candidate profile to the company for a specific opening. Applications can either follow an invitation, or can come proactively from a candidate interested in that same opening.

Does Workling protect candidates' privacy information?

Yes. Candidates can choose to keep their contact information private while still submitting their profiles for open positions, and maintaining their profile visibility for our matching algorithm

How can candidates find the job openings?

Workling is designed to match candidates with the jobs that fit them best. Workling suggests which jobs are a fit based on a candidate’s profile. Additionally, candidates can find the job openings that interest them through a simple keyword search, or by going to a company's profile where all its job openings are listed.

How does the Matching Algorithm work?

The Workling platform utilizes a matching algorithm powered by machine learning to cut through any human biases that can cloud the hiring process. It starts with the skills and experiences the company creating the opening highlights as essential to success, and searches every variable of every candidate in our database to identify the best fit. It scans for candidates with the appropriate skills assessment scores, experiences, and availability, and makes recommendations based solely on merit.

Does Workling hire the employee for the companies?

All hiring decisions are made by the company posting the job. Workling simply brings the candidates and company together, and makes the hiring process easy.

How can companies track the hiring process?

To make the hiring process easy to manage, Workling created the Recruitment Funnel, an intuitive tracking portal that shows which candidates moved through each step of the hiring process from the Workling Shortlist and proactive applications through the stages of interviewing, offer tracking and ultimately new hires.

What kind of candidates are on Workling?

Everyone is welcome on Workling, but we focus on professionals from the tech, sales, HR or business industries.

Can candidates leave the selection process in which they are participating?

Yes. Candidates can choose to withdraw from the hiring process at any time and stop receiving messages from the company.

Here’s how it works for Candidates:

  • 1. Create your profile with contact information, work history, skills, goals, etc… the more complete your profile the easier it will be for hiring managers to find you.
  • 2. Take a series of skills assessments. They aren’t long, or hard, they are simply designed to verify that your skill level matches your experience. The more assessments you do well on, the more likely a hiring manager will find you.
  • 3. Hiring managers will post openings, and search for candidates with specific skills, strengths, and experiences. They find you, they invite you to apply, and the process begins.
  • 4. When hired, you’ll have a great job where you are an immediate contributor, and you’ll get paid in your choice of US Dollars or your local currency.

I have 10 years of experience as a professional. Why do I have to take these assessments?

We are big believers in the idea of trust, and verify. Our platform works because companies trust that we will provide them with the best candidates for their open roles. We do that by verifying that each candidate has the skills they say they have with a technical assessment. You don’t have to take them, but it’s unlikely that our scoring system will be able to match your skills to those a company highlights when they post the perfect job for you without the scores.

Does Workling protect candidates' privacy information?

Yes. Candidates can choose to keep their contact information private while still submitting their profiles for open positions, and maintaining their profile visibility for our matching algorithm.
