Since its launch in early February 2015, Quick Feedback has been used by over 300,000 mobile-based job seekers who are receiving over 2 million Quick Feedback instant messages daily from prospective employers. The number of daily subscribers following Zhaopin’s official account on Wechat has increased over 20 times since its launch, demonstrating the traction Quick Feedback is having with mobile users.
Easy Hire is a mobile-based product that provides employers with a user-friendly platform to track applications to their job postings and offer quick feedback through WeChat anytime anywhere. Since its launch in early February 2015, Easy Hire has been used by over 10,000 HR personnel through mobile devices.
"Quick Feedback and Easy Hire are two new innovative products which we are confident will help us in further expanding our market share amongst small-and-medium sized enterprises," commented Mr. Evan Guo, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Zhaopin.
