BulitIn Adds Hybrid Support
As tech workers continue to seek more transparency into companies’ stance on remote and hybrid work, the tech recruitment platform Built In today has launched a new feature that empowers companies to deliver exactly that.
According to a 2022 Built In survey, more than half of the platform’s users aged 25 or older say they prioritize hybrid opportunities in their job searches. Currently, 38 percent of those surveyed professionals already work in a hybrid capacity. Of people who work in an office full time, one in five say they want hybrid work.
“At Built In, we’ve always helped companies recruit smarter by empowering them to show they offer what tech workers are seeking from employers,” said Adam Calica, Built In’s Co-Founder and VP of Growth. “In our research, 100 percent of the tech professionals we surveyed said they want to see information about employers’ hybrid policies when considering new opportunities. By allowing companies to show that, this new feature gives them a talent acquisition edge.”
Companies can now leverage Built In’s platform to share details about their approaches to work, denoting whether a given role is remote, on-site or hybrid, and providing a description of their hybrid culture.
Built In will continue to enhance the new setting, making changes in lockstep with evolutions in the world of work. Companies can activate their hybrid settings today by logging into their account.
OfferUp Adds Job Listings
The Seattle-area startup has added job listings to its popular peer-to-peer marketplace with the launch of OfferUp Jobs in the company’s mobile app. The service, which OfferUp has been testing in select U.S. regions, became available to all users on Thursday.
OfferUp Jobs allows job seekers to search by keyword, filter jobs by location, or browse jobs in the feed. Users can apply directly from their mobile device and all interaction or status of applications is handled by the employer. Users can’t post their own job offers — OfferUp is working with a third-party provider.
