Proven Craigslist Hiring (Free)

Proven Craigslist HiringWhat’s it about? Employers, use Proven Craigslist Hiring to track applicants and manage your job listings through classified ads service Craigslist.

What’s cool? Craiglist can often be a pretty great tool for people looking for jobs, as well as for people looking to hire new workers. The classified ads site makes creating job listings for specific kinds of occupations and in particular areas easy to do, but managing things after placing a listing can be difficult. Proven's new app, Craigslist Hiring, is specifically geared at helping employers keep track of the job listings they create on the site. You can alter your and post listings from the app wherever you are, and see who's responding and the information they send along on your Android device, rather than waiting to get back to a computer. You can also easily connect with candidates through email or phone calls, and sort applicants into yes, no or maybe groups as you read through them.

Who’s it for? If you're an employer looking to use Craigslist to find new hires, Proven Craigslist Hiring can help.
