New Candidate Search Technology Matches Open Jobs to Talent Anywhere on the Web and In Social Networks
BURLINGAME, CA, September 21, 2011 – Jobvite, the leading recruiting platform for the social web, today announced new candidate search technology that makes it fast and affordable for employers to discover the best-fit talent for open jobs. Hundreds of millions of resumes and profiles are available online, however until now it has been time-intensive to access multiple sites, compare results and reach out to prospects. Now with candidate search technology in Jobvite Source, employers can search hundreds of free and paid resume databases and rank the results from all sources – all from within one intuitive interface; Jobvite has also added Google+ to its previously supported social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter) for search.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that up to 85 percent of career opportunities go unadvertised. To fill these unadvertised positions, employers frequently canvas job boards and resume databases for prospective hires; research shows employers value these prospects highly because they are handpicked for specific skills and experience relevant to the job.
The new Jobvite search technology canvases the largest and constantly growing set of professional information on the web to find prospective hires for open jobs. Profiles and resumes are ranked against keywords and attributes unique to the position in order to return the prospects best suited for that specific job. Recruiters can use a multitude of criteria such as Boolean searches, education level, location and years of experience.
“Now recruiters don’t have to spend hours jumping back and forth between multiple sites and sifting through thousands of resumes to find prospective hires,” said Dan Finnigan, President and Chief Executive Officer at Jobvite. “With Jobvite Source, the best resumes are at the top of the list, ready and waiting for you.”
