NetHire is Canada's leader in Online Candidate Sourcing and Talent Acquisition.
NetHire started operating January 1, 2011 after a year of development by a team of Recruitment, IT, SEO and Social Media experts working together to build leading edge hiring technology. Out of the gate, NetHire was able to source better candidates than clients had been getting with single job boards or newspaper ads.
Our parent company was originally founded in 1988 with the first employment newspapers in Canada and the United States. The company then branched out into providing technology to job boards and corporate career sites. In 2010, seeing the change in how people were searching and being connected to jobs they took a huge leap of faith and formed NetHire.

The pie was fragmented into thousands of slices. NetHire was formed to reconnect employers with job seekers and reconsolidate a very fragmented pie. With over 30,000 job boards in North America no one job board was any longer singularly impactful, but as a group they were significantly important. Social Media could now be tapped for quality candidates even those not actively looking and search engines presented the opportunity to be the first job people searching would see
