Overall Satisfaction with Indeed Sponsored Jobs

I'm the recruiter for GulfSouth Autism Center we have 5 clinics around the Louisiana area. Our business is one that we continue to hire on a daily basis, simply because we hire students out of college with a bachelor's in psychology, communication disorders, speech pathologist, education, social work, counseling, and sociology. I have about 200 to 250 students that are continually moving through. They usually work about one year with us until they finish their master's. Indeed Sponsored Jobs has helped me recruit when I need a few, when I need them ASAP and when I need thirty. Is nice to be able to post a job today and start getting responses sometimes the same day or the next day. I use this 24/7 to find the most qualified candidates. There are features that I don't use, like setting up appointments through the platform, I need results immediately, I call or text the candidates. My market is 20-25 age group.
  • Immediate response, that's what I need. I post the job, there is no waiting one day or two hours to respond to the candidates.
  • Gives me better visibility, better ability to choose different candidates, I've tried sponsored jobs with deal-breakers and non-deal-breakers. Sometimes is best not to have a deal-breaker for certain jobs because I might pass on a candidate I wouldn't have thought to maybe take a look at.
  • I've also used the instant match, I'm starting to get better at qualifying those candidates and I had a few applicants from that.
  • I would like to keep the candidates that I'm working on the same list, next to them I would like to write short notes. Like 2nd interview on March 28 at 9:00. or waiting for review. I know there is probably a place I can write that flipping from page to page but I would like to have it where I can see the candidates I'm working for until they're hired. Once they're hired I would be interested in keeping a list of them on the same page, where I can get an idea of how many I've hired that month.
  • I currently do that in a spreadsheet with our 5 clinics, but it would be nice to have that on Indeed. All in the same place.
  • It has been a good ROI for a competitive position to fill. I think the longer a recruiter takes to reach out to the candidate, most likely you will lose the candidate. I see people that have issues finding candidates in Indeed but sometimes has to do with how quickly you can reach out to them, set up interviews, and hire.
We hire bachelor's in psychology, communication disorders, speech pathologist, education, social work, sociology, and counseling.
I had a few instances where I'm logged in and a resume comes in, I call the candidate immediately, the candidate tells me that they found another position with another company. How could that happen, I just got the candidate fresh from the press.
Many years ago I used to sell Japanese copiers and I had to compete with Xerox. Xerox had 98% of the market, they got so big that it would take them 1 to 2 weeks for the repair guy to show up. I venture to say that Xerox has about 30% of the market today. Why? Service. The reason I enjoy working with Indeed is that there are two people that I work with very closely, Randi Shelton and Ashley Duan, without them, you wouldn't have a business. They have the ability to connect with people on a professional and personal level, have strong people skills, are very supportive to us here at GulfSouth Autism Center, follow through with each of my calls, have great ideas on how I can be more productive with Indeed, they're trying to get me to do the mobile app, I like that idea but how do you sell it to a clinical person. If I was you guys I would give them a 10% raise.

Finding candidates with a high school education the jobs don't need to be sponsored. Whereas the hard positions to fill they would need ore visibility.
