Mortgage lender LoanDepot to host virtual job fair for 3,000 openings – Orange County Register

Orange County-based lender LoanDepot will host a virtual job fair on Thursday, April 23 to help fill an expansion of 3,000 workers.

With mortgage rates falling and lending activity increasing, the company says it needs help dealing with what it expects will be a rush of borrowers. The online job fair will take place on the company’s LinkedIn channel at 3 p.m. Pacific time.

LoanDepot granted $45 billion in loans last year, ranking second among non-bank mortgage lenders in the country.

The hiring is part of the Lake Forest-based company’s evolution into a more internet-focused lender in an industry known for its mountains of paperwork.

The company says the knowledge eased its transition to a remote workplace when the pandemic hit. LoanDepot says its current 7,000 employees are all now working remotely. This technology also enables virtual hiring practices.

“We’re in for a new normal – but it’s a normal we were prepared for,” said company founder and CEO Anthony Hsieh. “Our team has created a process through which candidates can apply, register and train entirely virtually.”

Hsieh says the company uses technology to ensure that employees at home can always be connected and able to perform functions critical to the health and growth of the business, “like research and hiring. new candidates, exceptionally well”.
