WALTHAM, Mass., August 10, 2011— Information Technology contract and permanent recruiting company AVID Technical Resources has chosen Jobmagic as its social media recruiting platform to quickly post jobs and attract more candidates.

Based in Boston, AVID specializes in staffing for both applications development and infrastructure support. Its broad client base ranges from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies and stretches across numerous vertical markets, including biotechnology, construction, financial, government, and healthcare/medical institutions.

Jobmagic, one-stop social media recruiting platform, helps companies quickly and easily reach the best talent on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and 300 other social networks. To amplify the network effect and to reach a high number of candidates, all Jobmagic job postings are social media optimized. The comprehensive platform includes advanced technologies for referral hiring, social media native job postings, automatic job publishing to social media and talent network management.

Andrea Chong, AVID’s interactive marketing manager, was looking for a way to give clients’ job postings more exposure to bring in more qualified candidates. “We fill highly technical positions, and some of our clients are very specific in their requirements,” Chong said. This limits the number of job seekers who possess the necessary qualifications, making positions more difficult to fill.

AVID now uses Jobmagic’s platform to post job openings natively to Facebook Jobs Tab. Jobmagic is integrated with Bullhorn ATS which eliminates any manual job re-entry. The jobs are also tweeted automatically during peak Twitter hours and sent to AVID recruiters’ LinkedIn accounts. “Jobmagic saves us a lot of time, and it’s more convenient for candidates because they can apply for jobs without ever leaving Facebook.”

“Posting jobs within Facebook increases the number of applications by up to 50 percent,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “This increases the chances of finding just the right person, which is so important to specialized recruiting firms like AVID. We are dedicated to providing the best-of-breed social recruiting tools that help fill positions quickly with highly qualified candidates.”
