Inspired by Product Hunt, Recruiter Hunt brings recruiters a list of the best new apps, tools, and websites for recruiters every Friday. It was created by recruiting expert Carmen Hudson, who claims she started it because she has such a bad memory. “For years, I’d wanted a way to catalog and share the many websites, apps, and tools used by recruiters. Despite the many helpful blogs, groups, and articles about recruiting tools, there was no way to keep track of all of the new tools without losing track of the old tools,” says Carmen.
In addition to getting the curated list in their inboxes, recruiters can visit the website to upvote apps and tools, helping recruiters more easily identify the best products.
