Wayup Message

Embracing the power of technology with candidate matching and AI

Innovative candidate-matching technology coordinates with your target candidate profile and diversity goals to source the most qualified candidates. Leveraging automation results in filling your candidate pool with top, diverse, and qualified candidates that meet your requirements. Think of this as the perfect compliment to your sourcing — an algorithm that’s constantly working in the background for your team.

Hit Diversity Goals Faster with WayUp & Yello

With 7M+ qualified, diverse candidates in WayUp, you’ll be able to reach more underrepresented candidates — at more schools — than in Ripplematch.

In RippleMatch, candidates can’t see your opportunities unless they’re a match for that specific job. The problem is that AI can be biased or skip over candidates with non-traditional experience that could actually be qualified — especially for early-career roles where that experience is transferable. In WayUp, any candidate can find your role via search and there are automatic screening questions to ensure only qualified candidates move forward.

Automated concierge sourcing promotes your opportunities to your target audience, surfacing the right candidates for your roles. With concierge, you can achieve quick and ongoing recruiting success without more work. WayUp’s experienced candidate marketing team is dedicated to growing and engaging the candidate database so you get the right applicants at the right time.

With RippleMatch, you can only message 250 candidates at once. In WayUp you can message 10x more at once — up to 25,000 candidates at a time.

Unlike Yello, RippleMatch doesn’t integrate with Zoom & Microsoft Teams for virtual events. That means attendance is not tracked automatically — and recruiters must enter it one-by-one after every event. Yello integrates with both platforms, helping you save time and collect accurate information.

Yello offers Event Scheduling to support interview events (like on-campus interviews, coffee chats, and more) with back-to-back time slots. These interview events are critical for moving early-stage candidates down the pipeline — and without built-in functionality, your team may have to do manual work to build a similar event-specific interview process.

While RippleMatch only allows you to give candidates a thumbs up or down, Yello evaluation forms are completely customizable to capture any information you’ll need.

Campus and diversity recruitment are so much more than just executing events. To truly be successful you need to build relationships with schools and orgs — 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.

Candidates on WayUp self-report their information, so it’s 100% OFCCP and EEOC compliant. Yello also supports compliance and privacy best practices, so you can focus on sourcing and recruiting quality candidates.

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.
