The hire program is a joint effort of the Canadian Economics Association and Econjobmarket.org. The software is designed so that Academic Departments, Government Agencies, Banks or Consulting firms who have open jobs in economics can easily and cheaply process the applications they receive. For the software to be of use, you must have a job ad posted at Econjobmarket.org. The features of the software include sorting according to answers to custom questions, rating, comments. You can even use the software to schedule on line interviews or interviews at any of the professional association meetings you are attending.
The data used by the hire program originates at Econjobmarket.org. The data (including any ratings or comments taht you save) is stored locally on servers located in Canada at the University of British Columbia. This satisfies a legal requirement for many universities in Canada.
