After over a year of testing with companies in various verticals, Google has released Google Hire - a recruiting solution meant for use with G Suite. Google Hire does everything other recruiting solutions do, but with one key feature - it seamlessly integrates with Gmail, Google Calendar, and every Google App your organization already uses. With its pricing structure, it is meant for use by larger small businesses and medium-sized businesses.

Google Hire has many features such as applicant tracking, candidate nurturing through email campaigns, and an easily searchable database of candidates that you can mine before posting a job. It helps you keep track of your “silver medal” candidates so you can come back to them at a later date, rather than inefficiently posting a job and sorting through resumes with each new job that becomes available. Google Hire has already received many accolades from its beta testers, and is a refreshing palate cleanser from the complex recruiting solutions that have been in-market for years.

Google Hire’s Not-so-Secret Weapon: Deep Integration with Gmail

While Google Hire can integrate with Google Sheets and other Google apps, its email integration with Gmail is where its power really shines. Any emails between you and candidates are automatically saved to their profile, and show up with a “Hire” label in your Gmail. See the video below for how it works.
