Questions we get asked often

How is Giraffe different from other job boards?

Job boards are often a pain to use. This is because once you post a job, you are flooded with hundreds of even thousands of applicants- many of whom are irrelevant or live far away from your workplace.

Unlike other job boards, Giraffe screens candidates so you don’t have to. Giraffe automatically passes or fails candidates as they apply. Giraffe also ensures that you only see candidates that live close by to your workplace. Giraffe even gets candidates to submit voice notes.

This means that you don’t have to spend hours screening through irrelevant candidates. Instead, you can quickly find candidates that meet your requirements- and even listen to how they sound.

Giraffe helps you find the best person for the job- faster and cheaper than any other way.

How does Giraffe work?

Unlike other job boards, Giraffe automatically screens candidates, so you don’t have to. Here’s how it works:

  1. Create your job post. Giraffe automatically makes candidate screening questions as you make your job post
  2. Giraffe has a database of over 1 million candidates nationwide. Giraffe will target relevant candidates that live close to your work location and screen them using your customised screening questions
  3. Candidates who apply for your post will have the option of submitting a voice note
  4. When you log in to your dashboard, you can review candidates that have applied to your job post
  5. Giraffe will have automatically identified the candidates that passed your screening
  6. You can simply look at the candidates that have passed, and listen to their voice clips. This saves hours of screening through irrelevant candidates!
  7. Shortlist the candidates that you like (Giraffe does not contact these candidates)
  8. Invite the best candidates for interview
  9. Once you’ve hired the candidates you want, you can close your job post
