WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 26, 2010—Contingent and temporary staffing firm Canon Recruiting Group has chosen Jobmagic as its social media recruiting platform to find and attract candidates outside of job boards.
The Canon Recruiting Group, based in Southern California, has been a leader in contingent and temporary staffing since 1980 and often staffs for executive-level positions. The firm staffs for a variety of industries, including insurance, banking and mortgage, entertainment, human resources and legal. Canon was recognized in the 2010 Inc. Magazine’s list of Fastest Growing Companies in America.
Jobmagic, the leading social media recruiting platform, helps companies quickly and easily reach the best talent on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and 300 other social networks—at a fraction of the cost of other approaches. Jobmagic job postings are native to social media, which triggers sharing within referral networks. This results in higher-quality candidates. 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 social media sourcing, social media optimization, automatic job publishing to social media, referral hiring, talent network management and semantic profile-based matching.
James Grayem, general manager of Canon, decided to try Jobmagic to enhance exposure to the vast talent pool represented by those who are active on social sites. Canon works with some of the largest organizations, such as Bank of America, to find professionals for hard-to-fill positions. Grayem said Jobmagic has been a great tool to reach people who are suitable for these positions— qualified passive candidates who are difficult to find.
“Jobmagic has been a great tool to reach people who are often not on big job boards,” Grayem said. “The quality of candidates is higher, and we get a bulk of qualified candidates per posting for our positions. That’s what Jobmagic delivers.”
“We are thrilled to continue working with Canon, one of the fastest-growing staffing firms in the country,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “Facebook represents the largest and the most engaged talent pool in the world, and we are committed to providing Canon with the comprehensive tools to quickly and efficiently tap into Facebook and fill demanding positions.”
Grayem admits that he hesitated at first to try what could have been just another recruiting tool-of-the-week. “I was reluctant at first to try Jobmagic, but it’s made us look good on a number of occasions because we can get results faster than anyone else.”
