Read Time2 Minute, 4 Second

Recruit Rooster, a leading provider of talent acquisition technology and solutions, has recently announced a suite of new recruitment solutions, including a new website that reflects their comprehensive approach to serving companies’ recruitment marketing needs. Since 2017, Recruit Rooster has assisted HR teams in building their employer brands, providing positive and seamless candidate experiences, and establishing and maintaining relationships with job seekers.

To further empower recruiters, they’ve recently unveiled innovative new product features, including:

  • Text engagement: easy-to-use text recruiting to engage with job seekers efficiently and effectively
  • Marketing automation: custom email and SMS campaigns that can be scheduled and sent to segmented lists of candidates
  • Talent profiles: robust candidate data that’s easy to search and categorize into talent pools and provides useful information for sending personalized communications
  • Data and insights: an analytics dashboard that provides teams with important information to help optimize and improve efforts

General Assembly (GA) today announced the launch of GA Apprenticeships, Powered by Interapt, a tech apprenticeship solution designed to fast-track high-potential, overlooked talent into careers in software engineering, data, and cybersecurity. In light of growing labor market challenges and ongoing skill shortages across a range of industries, this new model will provide employers with a derisked opportunity to onboard entry-level tech talent while also enabling apprentices to earn a salary as they learn alongside senior-level developers.

In partnership with Interapt – a skills development firm that is registered with the U.S. Department of Labor to deploy registered apprenticeship programs – GA Apprenticeships will provide candidates with GA’s industry-leading training along with Interapt’s one-on-one coaching, mentorship from experienced technical managers, and a growing virtual community of peers and mentors for future job opportunities. Apprentices not only develop foundational tech skills and gain experience working in teams with more experienced colleagues, but also build a support network that enables relationship building, long-term job satisfaction, and career mobility — all without the outsized financial burden of other training models or degree programs.

For employers, the General Assembly model presents an opportunity to hire newly trained workers into full-time roles at the end of their apprenticeship, creating a stronger and more diverse talent pipeline at a time when demand for tech talent continues to grow. Companies also have the added benefit of knowing that apprentices were trained on-site for the specific functions and roles they need, reducing onboarding time and boosting retention.
