Symplicity Partners with Yello to Connect Fortune 500 Employers to its Network of Early Talent Candidates
Industry leaders partner to create early talent marketplace and candidate resources for virtual recruiting
Symplicity Corporation, the global leader in student employability, today announced a partnership with Yello, the leader in early talent acquisition software, to connect the largest university recruiting companies in the world to Symplicity’s network of early talent candidates. The new service, the Yello Sourcing Marketplace, provides employers with diverse resources for finding millions of early talent candidates to facilitate virtual connections and faster hiring.
As higher education institutions struggle with the challenges of COVID-19, most universities have cancelled in-person career fairs and on-campus interviews and are opting for fully virtual recruiting programs. Symplicity and Yello leadership saw an industry-first opportunity to marry Symplicity’s network of more than 1,000 career centers worldwide to hundreds of the world’s leading brands such as EY, Toyota, Adobe, eBay, Johnson & Johnson, Phillips 66, Marriott and many more—all seamlessly integrated in the new Yello service.
“In an unprecedented recruiting season, the new Yello Sourcing Marketplace breaks new ground by helping employers easily find millions of candidates for virtual recruiting,” said Yello co-founder Dan Bartfield. “Our customers already use Symplicity’s technology and this new initiative expands that access. And it aligns two companies with the same philosophy – keeping customer needs front and center.”
The partnership will expand access to more quality and meaningful opportunities for millions of Symplicity student users, while bringing a more diverse candidate pool to Yello’s customers. Companies can also shape their recruiting efforts with targeted candidate pools, while engaging candidates in one integrated platform, rather than siloed recruiting software.
“Yale is thrilled about the Symplicity and Yello partnership,” said Yale University’s Director of Strategic Initiatives and Public Service Careers Robyn Acampora. “As someone who has worked closely with both Symplicity and Yello, I trust that this partnership will provide incredible opportunities for our students to expand their reach by allowing them to fully utilize both systems and connecting them with even more top-tier employers.”
“Now more than ever, Symplicity is committed to supporting and empowering our university partners, and we feel this strategic partnership will do just that by providing more quality opportunities and connections for students, while giving employers a seamless virtual experience,” said President & CEO of Symplicity Matthew Small. “We are elated to partner with Yello to create the most powerful early talent recruiting network in the market.”
