Smart pages & market scans

For the hard to fill vacancies convincing candidates is just as important as finding them. Therefore we would like to introduce to you the Smart Pages. A landing-page where you present your job vacancy and your company in a visually attractive way using photo and video material. It’s smart because of its responsive design on mobile and because we can analyse the behaviour of all visitors, and to know who to reach with smart pages we have a great way of showing you how to use market scans. Before you start the actual search, it can be interesting to research the number of potential candidates in different geographical regions. The Market Scan gives you an overview of, and insight in, the total amount of potential candidates, their educational background, work experience and current location
