Earnest is using data science, smarter design, and exceptional service to rebuild financial services. Founded in 2013 on the belief that financially responsible people deserve better options and access to credit, Earnest’s lending products are built for a new generation seeking to reach life’s milestones.
Earnest is on a mission to democratize access to high-quality financial services by using more than just a credit report to evaluate applicants. Instead, Earnest uses data. They look at an applicant’s savings pattern, employment history, and expected career trajectory. The results are interest rates and terms uniquely tailored to each individual borrower.
Colleen McCarty, Head of People and Talent, knew that language alone had the power to make a job more inclusive. She was already using another job editor when she contacted TapRecruit looking for a solution that would help her hire new talent and seamlessly integrate with her current workflow. Colleen was thinking big. She wanted a new hiring process that would achieve not one, but three goals:
Speed up talent acquisition without adding more recruiters
A small hiring team with the right tools should be able to handle a fast-growing organization with significant hiring targets.
Reduce Earnest’s dependence on sourcing channels
Expensive job marketing solutions should be used sparingly, if at all. Most of their talent should be found via organic sourcing.
Enable her distributed team to draft jobs together
Business managers in each of the company’s geographical locations need to be involved in the hiring process.
Earnest uses Greenhouse as their applicant tracking system. That’s why TapRecruit’s integration with Greenhouse made it a perfect fit. Let’s take a look at how Earnest’s new, TapRecruit-powered hiring process is helping Colleen achieve her three goals:
Earnest now attracts 95% more candidates
When Earnest’s hiring teams work together to write a job description that scores 85+, they see a 95% increase in the number of candidates who apply. In a competitive talent market like San Francisco, often starved for candidates, Earnest used TapRecruit’s Job Title and Skills guidance to maximize their inbound candidate funnels.
Earnest attracts 75% more qualified candidates
What’s better than more candidates? More qualified candidates. The same jobs that scored 85+ also saw an incredible 75% increase in the number of candidates who were qualified enough to receive a phone interview. More qualified candidates also equals faster time-to-fill for Earnest’s high scoring jobs which are live for only 30 days.
“I love TapRecruit. It’s something the recruiting team and hiring managers use every day and on every job, because we see the significant positive impact that it has on our hiring.” – Colleen McCarty, Head of People and Talent
Earnest is seeing substantially more hires from organic inbound candidates.
Earnest quickly discovered that better job descriptions drive better quality organic inbound candidates. This enabled them to cut their dependency on expensive sourcing solutions by half.
