Kwantek, a hiring solutions service, has partnered with large job portal Indeed to further streamline application processes for all parties involved. Kwantek expects their users to receive a higher number of applications and an easier recruitment process in the coming weeks thanks to this partnership. Kwantek's job listings will be posted to Indeed, which will then forward all responses to Kwantek users.

Indeed Resume has moved from a pay-per-contact pricing model to a two-tiered subscription model for recruiters, who can now earn credits for job candidates' responses.
