My company sells a content monetization platform for online publishers. Last year, we were growing fast and hiring a lot of people, so my partner and I started looking for a streamlined way to recruit and track job applicants. That's when we came across a Web-based service called the Resumator.

Now, we log on to our Resumator account to create and publish job listings on our company's Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts. (We found our financial controller on Twitter.) We also embedded a widget on our website that automatically updates our Careers page when we add positions on Resumator. We can also post listings on free job boards, including Simply Hired.

For each job, we include a unique link that brings applicants to the posting on our company's branded job board on the Resumator site, where they can fill out applications and submit resumés. Then, my partner, HR director, and I can review everything online.

We use the Resumator's Grow plan, which costs $199 a month and gives us a branded job board, the ability to post up to 10 open positions at a time, and access to reports and analytics. For us, it's been a great way to organize job applications, wherever we advertise them.
