How did you first hear about MoBerries' Virtual Recruiters?
Through our longstanding collaboration with MoBerries, we had previously posted and successfully filled several positions on their platform. These included positions such as our Head of Project Management, Team Lead Product Management, Graphic / Visual Designer, and many more.
During a conversation with our account manager, we were introduced to MoBerries' latest product, the Virtual Recruiters. This solution was presented to us as a way to acquire candidates for hard-to-fill positions. MoBerries' Virtual Recruiters utilize active sourcing and match potential profiles with the requirements of the open position to address candidates individually. Since we were already aware that we needed to focus more on active sourcing in the future to continue finding new talents successfully, we decided to give MoBerries' Virtual Recruiters a chance.
What challenges did you face in recruitment before using Virtual Recruiters?
Before using MoBerries' Virtual Recruiters, we faced several challenges in recruiting new employees. The gaming industry is known for its high demand for specialized professionals. Finding and hiring suitable candidates thus became a time-consuming task. Due to the relatively small size of our recruiting team, there was limited time available for active sourcing. Additionally, the number of direct applications had consistently decreased over the years, clearly indicating that the job market had changed. According to current statistics, over 70 % of candidates in the market are now passive. Therefore, it was clear to us that we needed to focus more on active sourcing to continue finding the right talents in the future.
Thanks to the introduction of Virtual Recruiters, we were able to overcome these challenges successfully. The automated active sourcing support allowed us to target candidates effectively, resulting in an increase in the response rate by almost 30 %. Furthermore, the Virtual Recruiters relieved our internal resources, allowing us to concentrate more on personal interaction with incoming applicants.

This saves us valuable time and allows us to focus on building relationships with our applicants.
What experiences did you have while setting up MoBerries?
The MoBerries team worked closely with our HR department to understand our specific requirements and customize the process accordingly.

Subsequently, the campaign was launched within 48 hours. The implementation process was efficient and smooth overall.
