Hirevisor is an online recruiting marketplace. Our Services allow you to connect with individuals seeking employment opportunities (each, a “Candidate”). We serve as intermediary between Candidates and Employers. Hirevisor is not involved in any contract of employment and is not bound by any contractual agreement arising between Candidates and Employers, whether or not Hirevisor receives some form of remuneration in connection with the transaction.
Upon registering as an Employer, you will be assigned a Hirevisor employee who will be responsible for the day-to-day management of your Employer account (“Account Partner”). Employers will be able to view the collection of candidate profiles on www.hirevisor.com/network (the “Talent Exchange”). If you are interested in initiating a contact with a particular Candidate in the Showcase, you will be able to initiate the contact through our Services by sending a connection request (“Connection Request”) to Candidates through the Services. Your interaction with a Candidate may result in an offer for employment (“Job Offer”). Candidates may, in their sole discretion, accept or reject a Connection Request and/or a Job Offer. Employers who wish to obtain our Services on a subscription basis may do so by entering into our Subscription Agreement. You may contact your Account Partner if you wish to obtain our Services on a subscription basis.REGISTRATION
In order to access and use Services, you must activate an Employer account. During the onboarding process, you will have to provide your name, email address, and company name, and you will be asked to create a password for your account. You represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate, and you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You are responsible for the confidentiality of your user account. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a user name or password. We reserve the right to delete or change your user name and/or password at any time and for any reason. We are under no obligation to accept any individual as an Employer, and may accept or reject any registration in or sole and complete discretion.FEES
