eQuest to Release Voice Activated Job Posting that will Enable Recruiters to Post Jobs via ...

November 3, 2020 GMT

SAN RAMON, Calif., Nov. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eQuest today announced that it will transform the way people post Internet jobs. Beginning Monday, November 16, 2020, customers with Amazon Echo or Alexa Built-in devices will be able to say, “Alexa, open job posting”. This key command will automatically connect the voice-user to eQuest – which holds the entire catalog of jobs for that customer to access for job posting. The user can then say, “post a job” or “check activity”.

Gartner predicts that, by 2023, 25 percent of employee interactions with applications will be via voice, up from under 3 percent in 2019. Voice interfaces free digital workers from having to use a mouse and keyboard when interacting with business applications. This freedom can benefit workers greatly.

eQuest announced earlier this year that much of its strategy for 2020 and 2021 will be focused on automating the greater percentage of its products. The voice activated release is one many planned for release in the next 18 months.

“We are very excited to bring new technologies to the Human Resources community,” said Bob Jaworski, in charge of eQuest’s ATS and CRM alliances. “Our goal is to automate much of the job posting process. Simplicity is the name of the game.”
