Applicants for past jobs can opt-in for their resumes to be found and viewed by all employers who use the system. (This gives ZipRecruiter instant volume of candidates already in the database.) New applicants can opt-in when uploading a resume.Resume search looks like this; I…See More

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?
