1. How does Purpose Jobs help amplify a company's employer brand?

There are many ways that we can help amplify your brand. We share your big news on LinkedIn, like recent funding, awards or innovations. We’ll tell your story, share your values and humanize your brand with a premium company page. We also post blogs featuring top startups, growing companies, benefit perks—you can be featured. And of course, we can craft a featured blog post to spotlight your company.

2. What is a featured blog post?

A featured blog post is an exclusive story about your company. Whatever the story is that you want to tell, we want to help you tell it. Maybe it’s about your company culture, like this piece we did about Dynatrace. Or maybe you want to introduce your company to the community, like this new Columbus startup, Tandem. Or maybe you really want to share some big news, like Guardhat with their latest funding round. We work with each company to help craft the stories that matter to you.

3. What is the Purpose Jobs matching platform?

The Purpose Jobs matching platform is a sourcing tool for employers to find top talent in the Midwest. As an employer, you can:

  • post unlimited jobs

  • search through our community database to find candidates—all of which are pre-vetted and ready to interview

  • easily integrate your ATS to receive and manage applicants

Your employer profile and open jobs are also available to candidates in the community. As they browse through open jobs and hiring companies, they can skip or apply for as many as they like. This is why we work hard to build and show off your employer brand. Because the more you're able to highlight life at the company and who you are as an employer, the more applicants you'll receive—and the better they'll be matched with your company.

What determines a match? We like to focus on culture contribution, and the key things that will make candidates successful—and happy—at the company. Things like strong relationships, support from leadership, and growth opportunities.
