OneWire Releases New Candidate Interface

Improved Candidate Experience and Engagement, Overall Ease of Use Ensure Better Matches and Better Talent, Faster

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 8, 2012) - OneWire®, where finance professionals get hired, today announced the most robust update to its candidate application to date, including new design, process, and feature enhancements to better connect finance talent with relevant employers. The release simplifies the workflow for both candidates and employers, allowing candidates to create secure profiles in a matter of minutes and easily manage their applications, matches, and preferences. This enhanced user experience will allow both candidates and employers to engage more often and on a deeper level.

"Candidates are at the center of OneWire's ecosystem. We are thrilled to provide them with these new features to help them connect to the right finance jobs, faster. We've spent the past several months polling our community and have completely redesigned the candidate interface to deliver the enhancements our candidates are looking for," said OneWire President and Co-Founder Brin McCagg. "Not only do these features improve ease of use, but they encourage interaction between candidates and employers -- delivering a better experience for both."

The release offers a number of significant improvements:

  • A shorter sign up process brings applicants into the OneWire community faster. A new sign up form requires half as many data fields up front, reducing candidate frustration.
  • A completely redesigned profile layout helps candidates create their detailed profiles quickly and easily. The new design provides clear prompts to guide job seekers through the profile completion process, ensuring that individuals create relevant profiles and improve their matches with hiring employers.
  • Revised navigation, language, and a new style guide improve the user interface and ensure that users always have access to action items. Candidates can more easily review the status of their job applications, receive suggestions for similar positions, and join employers' Talent Communities, improving engagement with employers and connecting job seekers to relevant jobs, faster.
  • Integration and normalization of international data across licenses, certifications, board tests, GPA and the military allows candidates around the world to fully complete their profiles and be evaluated on a standardized scale.

"This release focuses primarily on the candidate side of the OneWire talent community, but both our constituencies -- job seekers and employers -- benefit," said McCagg. "We are continuously working hard to help our clients hire the right finance talent, faster, and connect candidates to the right finance job, now. We're excited about the progress we've made in this release to deliver on those promises and will continue to innovate going forward."
