How one summer camp operator does high volume seasonal hiring at scale
Founded in 2002, Galileo operates more than 70 imagination-sparking summer camps for children from preschool through eighth grade throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Chicago each year.
Galileo’s success depends on its ability to find and hire more than 2,800 university and high school students, recent graduates, and teachers as operations coordinators, instructors, counselors, and interns. Galileo has a very short timeframe to do this. To open on schedule each year, Galileo needs a ready pipeline of qualified candidates to source and hire from.
Galileo has used iCIMS to find, hire, and onboard staff since 2009. iCIMS’ Candidate Relationship Management enables the company to capture and stay connected with interested candidates who didn’t quite fit an open position initially.
This helps build a large pool of qualified candidates throughout the hiring cycle, year after year.
iCIMS helps us source within our own platform. It’s so important to our mission to find all of those qualified candidates quickly – 2,800 people – so moving fast and efficiently is crucial.
