Frequently Asked Questions at Ladders

About Ladders

What makes Ladders different from all other job sites?

Ladders is the only job site that is dedicated to connecting employers with experienced professionals looking for $100k+ positions across a range of industries. Over 90% of our candidates have a Bachelor's degree, and 45% have a Master's degree or higher.

What is Full Access?

Full Access is our annual premium seat license which allows you to be more efficient as a recruiter. To learn more click here

What is Third Page?

Third Page™ is Ladders' proprietary solution for learning more about candidates than is typically shared in a resume. While the typical candidate answers around 125 Third Page questions, any candidates who have answered at least one question will have the feature enabled on their profile. You'll be able to see whether a given candidate is willing to relocate, their preferences for working on teams or working remotely, and learn a lot about the candidate's likely culture fit with your organization. It's information you can find exclusively through Ladders.

What are CityHire emails?

CityHire emails allow you to promote multiple job openings you may have in a specific city through a customized email. They are great for both company branding and for increasing job applications. For more information, please contact our sales team at [email protected]

Our Candidates

How do you ensure applicants are qualified?

Ladders is the leading career and recruitment site for $100K+ jobs, and 90% of our users have a Bachelor's degree or above. We show your jobs only to candidates who have indicated that they are in your industry and salary range. In addition, the average income of our premium members is $145k, and 75% have at least 15 years of work experience.

How do you come up with suggested candidates?

Our algorithms are constantly being enhanced to suggest candidates based on the criteria specified in your search. These criteria are mapped to details in each candidate's profile, resume, and when applicable, their Third Page responses and other similar jobs.

How do I know if a candidate is actively or passively looking for a new job?

Ladders offers full transparency into how recently a member's resume was posted, as well as the member's last activity on the site. We periodically ask members with older resumes to update them. "Last active" is an indicator that someone who might not have recently updated their resume is starting to consider a career change.

Why can't I see candidate contact information?

Candidate contact information is available exclusively to our paid Full Access users. You can learn more about purchasing a Full Access license here.

Where can I view my applicants?

After logging in, you can access all candidates by going directly to 'Manage Jobs' and clicking on the number of 'Applies' to be directed to all applicants for your position.
