CareerArc Launches CareerArc 2.0 Social Recruiting Platform Designed for Candidate-Driven Job Market

CareerArc, a global leader in HR technology, today announced the release of CareerArc 2.0, the most significant update to its award-winning social recruiting platform.

This latest product release enhances both the CareerArc recruitment software suite—used by over a thousand enterprise SaaS clients—and candidate-facing digital products—serving millions of job seekers—to their most intuitive and advanced versions to date.

“CVS Health hires talent in both the health care and retail spaces, which currently represent two of the most significant opportunities for employment in the country,” said Kerry Noone, Director, Recruitment Marketing & Advertising at CVS Health. “During a time when job openings outnumber candidates, we need to expand our reach as wide as possible to support our hiring strategies. CareerArc delivers a real-time competitive advantage in recruiting on social media and an opportunity for us to promote our company values and culture. The release of CareerArc 2.0 allows us to stay on the cutting edge of HR technology and recruit at the speed of social.”

Richards, Chairman & CEO at CareerArc. “It is for this candidate- and attention-scarce era that we have designed and today proudly release CareerArc 2.0—our most advanced social recruiting solution to date. With significant investments in interface design, collaboration tools, and media sharing capabilities, CareerArc 2.0 was built to keep our clients’ employer brands in front of their target talent and ever at the forefront of social media innovation.”
