WizeHire announced a $7.5 million Series A round of VC for its SMB-focused applicant tracking system (ATS). For $199 per month or just under $2,000 per year, employers can create an unlimited number of jobs, have them “optimized” by WizeHire’s team of “hiring strategists,” and post them to job boards. The site includes integrated DISC personality assessments, screening questions, candidate matching based on DISC profiles, and hiring workflow tracking. Expanding beyond two users, adding geographical markets to hire from, and posting to “premium job boards” are all “upsells” that increase the monthly or annual fees.
Investment in talent acquisition was slow through 2020, attracting only $940 million in global VC investment. Get the full report, here.
