Boston, MA October 28, 2009 - The next-generation recruiting platform Jobmagic today announced its new social media application, which expands recruiters’ reach by leveraging the power of social media outlets such as Facebook®, LinkedIn® and Twitter.
Jobmagic’s application enables recruiters not only to efficiently attract qualified candidates through their many referral networks but also to grow their networks. Job postings feature one-click buttons to recruiters’ Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter profiles, making it easy for candidates to immediately connect and stay in touch. Networking is a key success factor in recruiting, and the social media-enabled job postings give recruiters a strong competitive advantage above plain text job postings.
“Jobmagic puts a recruiter’s social media brand one click away from millions of job seekers 24/7,” says Jindrich Liska, founder and CEO. “It brings recruiters closer to their candidates and allows them to engage in an immediate dialog.”
Jobmagic’s new application fully automates job publishing on Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook, each job is automatically published to a recruiter’s network news feed, where it can be shared and further virally distributed. In addition, a recruiter can specify a frequency at which jobs are automatically re-published or re-tweeted.
The application has been successfully used by recruiters across the entire spectrum of the industry, from executive search firms to staffing agencies, from healthcare to technology.
“Many recruiters are already using social media by manually publishing jobs through their status updates, job notifications or tweets,” says Liska. “Jobmagic improves efficiency by automating those processes.”
Additional features of the application include:
– Post jobs to LinkedIn Groups.
– Send jobs to LinkedIn contacts.
– Publish jobs to friends’ news feeds.
– Add full-featured, keyword and location-searchable job board to recruiter’s profile.
– Enable fully automated job re-publishing.
– Send jobs to Facebook friends.
– Show featured jobs directly on recruiter’s Facebook profile.
– Use Facebook Connect for one-click login from the Web.
– Tweet jobs to the company Twitter account.
– Enable fully automated job re-tweeting.
