Social recruiting solution Jobfox announced recently the release of new features that further enhance its innovative career networking platform. The addition of an automated skills-matching “Network Builder” plus LinkedIn and Facebook integration to the company’s already powerful candidate referral tools will help recruiters more easily find the best talent in the market, and increase job seekers’ chances of landing the perfect job.
Founded in 2005, and re-launched in February 2011, Jobfox is a career website that connects employers with professionals who want to work at their company. Jobfox takes the legwork out of networking for both recruiters and job seekers by automating the process of building networks and developing mutually beneficial connections. Using its “high-volume, high-speed” social recruiting solution, Jobfox Boost, recruiters and talent acquisition professionals are able to source the best talent in the market quickly and efficiently via private talent networking, and can start leveraging connections for recruiting and referrals virtually overnight.
“Our networking tools are producing impressive results in the market, and the company is picking up a lot of steam,” said Robert McGovern, chairman and CEO of Jobfox. “Our networking activity has experienced 500% growth in the last two months, with a quarter of a million job seeker requests per week already. This new product update will enhance activity among employers and candidates who are hungry for a better talent/job finding solution.”
NEW & ENHANCED FEATURES MAKE IT EASIER TO RECRUIT THE RIGHT PEOPLE
Network Builder. This new feature utilizes Jobfox’s patented Match algorithm to automatically recommend the best talent in that marketplace that employers should network with based on skills and experience. The addition of this intuitive recommendation engine to Jobfox’s automated process of building networks cuts the time in half for recruiters to build a high quality talent network.
LinkedIn Integration. Now employers can invite all of their LinkedIn connections into their Jobfox network with one click, right from their Jobfox dashboard. This new feature allows recruiters to leverage the connections they’ve already formed on LinkedIn, and use the enhanced recruiting and network communication tools that the Jobfox Boost solution provides, which are built for high-speed and high-scale.
Facebook Integration. When members of a recruiter’s network receive a job referral (“Boost Request”) from a recruiter, the member can now post it to their Facebook wall or send a Facebook message with one click to friends who might be right for the opening. This new feature will encourage more Boost activity, and result in higher levels of referrals for recruiters who subscribe to Jobfox Boost.
Resume Advice Network. Over the past few years, Jobfox has become the largest professional resume writing service on the Internet. Adding to its offering, the company is now providing free resume advice to all members of the Jobfox career networking community, and anyone who opts in for free at http://www.jobfox.com. The new network offers tips and advice from Jobfox’s top certified resume writers, as well as expert interviews with recruiters from top companies around the country.
“This new product update is just the beginning,” added McGovern. “Jobfox will continue to release new and unique features based on market needs. We work closely with Recruiting professionals to develop solutions that help them innovate, and are committed to building a product that is a step ahead of everyone else.”
