“The ability to email through Hiretual is probably also one of the biggest time savers because having to send emails through LinkedIn Recruiter was really time-consuming. Being able to shoot out 30 emails at once on Hiretual is probably the biggest differentiator.”

About First Entertainment Credit Union
Founded in 1967 by employees of Warner Bros. Studios, First Entertainment Credit Union has become the leading financial resource for members of the entertainment community. Since 2019, First Entertainment manages over $1.5 billion in assets, serves over 83,000 members, and partners with 400+ companies, guilds, unions, and community/industry organizations.
Hiretual understands that many recruiters are often swamped with job requisitions, and instead of dedicating hours into sourcing, recruiters must juggle other tasks that make the candidate experience a memorable one.
“The current job market is pretty tight, especially for the more technical or senior-level roles, so we were looking for a solution. I’m the only Talent Acquisition professional here, so I don’t have a ton of time to go in and just do a bunch of sourcing,” said Matthew Vandegrift, Talent Acquisition Partner at First Entertainment Credit Union.
Credit unions are in need of talent in specific niches, and Matthew needed a software that would widen the net and help him find more qualified candidates.
“There are certain software only credit unions or small banks use, so if we’re looking for a candidate who has experience with that specific technology, there’s a pretty small candidate pool,” said Matthew.
Why First Entertainment Chose Hiretual
Hiretual’s AI-powered technology can be easily implemented into recruiting teams of any size. Hiretual, a user-friendly hiring software, can augment your recruiting workflow and save you countless hours in sourcing for the best candidates from over 38 platforms (i.e. Linkedin, Facebook, GitHub, Stack Overflow) while you prioritize your time in creating the best candidate experience possible.
“I want a solution that can find a bunch of passive job seekers for me rather than just have me rely on candidates who apply. I recently did a search for one of our controller positions and found a couple people we’re interviewing,” says Matthew.
Aside from creating new sourcing projects within Hiretual, Matthew also takes advantage of the email sequence feature.
“Hiretual has been really helpful in helping me set up a couple email sequences, so I don’t have to keep manually doing that,” shares Matthew.
Matthew also notes that Hiretual offers solutions to issues that have not been addressed by LinkedIn.
“[Hiretual] does a lot more of the work for me compared to what I was doing before. I used to manually source candidates on LinkedIn by doing a bunch of boolean searches and going through hundreds of resumes to find the right people. The ability to email through Hiretual is probably also one of the biggest time savers because having to send emails through LinkedIn Recruiter was really time-consuming. Being able to shoot out 30 emails at once on Hiretual is probably the biggest differentiator,” explains Matthew.
Hiretual cares about its customers, and every customer can expect first-class support from a member of our Training Adoption Support (TAS) team.
“Everytime I reach out to Fei [Customer Success Specialist at Hiretual], she is really responsive. The onboarding process was really fast and very seamless. Fei’s been awesome,” says Matthew.
Plans for Using Hiretual in the Future
“My biggest goal would be to use it more and have it work for me in the background as I do other things. Historically, we’ve been very applicant heavy whereas I’d like to get more passive job seeker heavy in our candidate pool,” says Matthew
Hiretual is every recruiter’s best friend because we empower our customers to be at the top of their game. To fulfill that promise, Hiretual uses AI technologies to help recruiters and sourcers build a robust pipeline of quality talent to enable them to achieve their hiring objectives.
