WALTHAM, Mass., January 11, 2011—Canada’s number one short-term lender, Mogo, has chosen Jobmagic as its social recruiting platform to source candidates on Facebook and enhance their employment brand on social media.
Mogo aims to revolutionize financial services in Canada by offering consumers convenient access to small loans and short terms. The company has a significant online presence in addition to 11 stores throughout Canada. Mogo’s blog offers everyday money advice and a listing of money-saving deals across Canada

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.
Mogo was looking to expand its social media recruiting efforts on Facebook in a way that would exemplify its company culture of openness. Philipp Postrehovsky, Mogo’s online community manager, and his team discovered Jobmagic while researching social media recruiting tools. “We signed up for the 30-day free trial and were hooked,” Postrehovsky said.
Mogo Facebook fan page now features social media optimized job postings which are automatically published to their 11,000+ fans. The Facebook native job postings are packed with high engagement features such as embedded videos, talent network signup and one-click-simple sharing buttons to reach deep into referral networks of Mogo friends and their friends-of-friends. In addition, Jobmagic powers Mogo’s Twitter account and automatically publishes jobs at optimum time throughout a day for maximum exposure.
“Mogo shows how a fast growing company can realize substantial financial savings by leveraging Jobmagic for social recruiting,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “We are dedicated to continue providing Mogo with the innovative, best-in-class capabilities for recruiting on Facebook and Twitter.
All of Mogo’s applications—and therefore, their hires—now come through Jobmagic’s Facebook platform. “We no longer only rely on traditional job boards,” said Postrehovsky. “Jobmagic is driving the results we want.”
