How to Build a SaaS Recruitment Software

Once a business grows past it’s first 20 or 30 employees, they’re going to need a way to speed up the recruitment process. America just hit the lowest jobless rate in years, and companies are facing labor shortages across the board. If you want to build a SaaS recruitment software, then now is a better time than ever, as companies will pay big money to get connected with valuable employees. 

What are the Advantages of a SaaS Recruitment Software?

Traditional recruitment methods cost lots of money. They require the company to pay money for advertising, often involve paying potential candidates’ plane flights, hotel stays, and more. They also have to keep several hiring managers on-hand to handle all of the new recruits.

Needless to say, it can become quite a headache, especially for large companies.

A recruitment program helps by automating many of these simple processes. It allows job searches and hiring companies to connect with each other, view each other’s profiles, upload resumes, and set up meeting times. Automating all of the processes greatly reduces the businesses overhead costs, and makes finding good employees a lot easier.

This article was originally published by Common Edge as "The Genius, Heart and Humility of Indian Architect B.V. Doshi."

I’m sitting in a busy suburban coffee-and-donut shop with the quiet, grandfatherly Indian architect, Jitendra Vaidya. When I started my life as an architecture intern in the late 90s, Jitendra was one of the most experienced technical designers I knew. Equally comfortable weighing the relative merits of various flashing details as he is discussing abstract design concepts, Jitendra is an old-school, universal architect. After more than half a century in a profession famous for grinding deadlines, Jitendra still maintains a joyful twinkle in his eye when he talks about architecture. So it’s no surprise that Jitendra is visibly animated today as he tells me about his teacher, the man who was just recognized as one of the world’s greatest living architects, B.V. Doshi.

Star Man Underground: David Bowie Takes Over Manhattan Subway Station

[ By SA Rogers in Destinations & Sights & Travel. ]

David Bowie lives on in many ways and in many places, but at the moment, his presence feels particularly acute while passing through the Broadway-Lafayette Station of New York City’s subway system. The music legend has completely taken over, from lenticular portraits looming over the heads of commuters to posters replacing the typical advertisements and even keepsake Bowie-themed MetroCards. He might have been from London, but Manhattan was Bowie’s home, and Spotify is celebrating that fact with an immersive exhibition acting as an extension of the ‘David Bowie is’ show over at the Brooklyn Museum.

Much of the work seen in the station is Bowie-inspired art, including fan art and reproductions of the pieces on display at the museum. Each piece is paired with a statement of Bowie’s that reflects his love for New York City and how it affected his work.

Commissioned by the Equal Justice Initiative, the scheme is America’s first memorial dedicated to “the legacy of enslaved black people, people terrorized by lynching, African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence.”

Canned Heat: 12 Folk Art Painted Residential Propane Tanks

[ By Steve in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ]

Those popular home propane tanks that look like colossal cold capsules or dry-docked mini subs can be unusual showcases for unique folk art creations.

Ranging in capacity from 250 gallons up to 500 gallons, residential propane tanks typically sport white finishes or are left unpainted because, y’know, dark gas tanks under bright sunlight and all. Not all propane tanks are so exposed, however, and their sizes and shape invite an unlimited range of creative solutions. One of the most popular, it would seem, is turning the tank into a Beatle-esque Yellow Submarine.
