Feature Comparison: Yello & WayUp vs. iCIMS

Yello and WayUp are designed specifically to support the unique needs of campus recruiters, and they offer robust functionality you won’t find in iCIMS.

While iCIMS applicant tracking system allows talent acquisition specialists to engage talent and achieve high-volume hiring, Yello’s best-in-class early talent solutions allows organizations to build scalable talent pipelines while tracking HR performance and measuring recruiting efficiency. Yello allows recruiters to showcase employer branding at on-campus and online events, with mobile recruiting tools, interview automation, and concierge DEI sourcing from WayUp’s 7M+ candidate database. 

“Before Yello, we weren’t able to get back 
to our candidates or managers as quickly — there was a lot of follow-up and other companies could move faster.”

Hit Campus Goals Faster with Yello

While other solutions offer a simple resume drop for events, Yello provides advanced functionality including:

  • Offline mode: Capture candidate info, engage, and evaluate on Yello’s mobile app without an internet connection
  • Device shipping: Let Yello handle device rental, shipping, and setup – so you can focus on engaging candidates
  • On-the-spot scheduling: Quickly move candidates to interviews while they are at your booth
  • Immediate follow-up: Select candidates and message in seconds after the event

Yello integrates with tools you use like Zoom & Microsoft Teams for virtual events. Attendance is tracked automatically, helping you save time and follow up with top candidates quickly. 

Campus and diversity recruitment are so much more than just executing events. To truly be successful you need to build relationships with schools and organizations — and be able to track results and candidate demographics year-to-year to continue to improve your strategy. Yello offers Campus Profiles to track key campus contacts and details, as well as built-in student demographic reporting to help you find campuses that support your recruitment goals. 

Yello is school agnostic and supports in-person and virtual events – so you can meet and hire candidates on your terms.

Yello & WayUp are uniquely able to support campus and DEI recruitment goals — WayUp offers a diverse talent pool, dozens of self-reported and compliant candidate data points, and robust DEI analytics to uncover and correct unconscious bias in your recruiting process.

Yello’s Event Scheduling supports in-person and virtual interview events (like on-campus interviews, coffee chats and more) with back-to-back time slots. Invite candidates to schedule on their own, or schedule the interviews yourself on-the-spot during events. This scheduling technology tailored to campus teams is critical for moving high volumes of early-stage candidates down the pipeline – and without built-in functionality, your team will have to do manual work to build a similar event-specific interview process.

Yello evaluation forms are completely customizable to capture any information you need to make better decisions.

Yello supports compliance with key regulations (GDPR, CCPA, and more) and privacy best practices, so you can focus on sourcing and recruiting quality candidates. Also, WayUp is 100% OFCCP and EEOC compliant because candidates self-report their information.

As a Yello customer, you’ll have access to a dedicated team of support and success professionals. From ATS integrations to implementations and business reviews, our team’s expertise in DEI and early talent recruitment will help you achieve goals and work more effectively.

with Yello

After events, we’d have a large stack of 200+ event forms and then we had to sort through the stack... Now, everything is entered in Yello, and what used to take us an hour now only takes 15 minutes.
