Snaptalent has used Daylife’s API platform to build a more complete job ad for a new type of online recruiting. The unique format of Snaptalent’s job ads stems from our effort to provide each candidate as much information about the company as possible. Rather than the traditional job-board format, our ad widgets allow companies to include videos, a photo gallery, text descriptions, and now with the help of DayPI, quotes and news stories about our advertisers from all over the Internet.
Like any good tool, the DayPI does precisely what it is supposed to do and then gets out of the way. We began integration by writing a small module to fetch data from Daylife. This we coupled with a small Django template to format the information in a pleasing and useful way. We soon discovered that some of the companies advertising with us were so young as to not yet have any press coverage; not a problem at all, as we simply consult the DayPI periodically on behalf of these companies and add new stories and quotes as they appear.
For some examples, see:
DayLife’s technology is an essential part of what makes our ads unique and successful. Unbiased news and quotes aggregated from the web gives candidates a well-rounded and truthful look at the company in question. DayPI allows Snaptalent to build a revolutionary recruitment format that brings the best talent to the best companies.
