OCEANSIDE, CA February 8, 2011 — Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the maker of SmartSearch®, an industry leading talent acquisition system and recruitment business solution, adds capabilities for its users to leverage social media and engage candidates with new integration to TweetMyJOBS®, a comprehensive social media recruiting company and largest Twitter job board in the world.
With thousands of twitter accounts to choose from on TweetMyJOBS®, SmartSearch integration enables recruiters to select job category, geographic location, and other criteria to intelligently tweet job postings to a targeted audience of job seekers worldwide.
“We are excited to work with APS and enable the SmartSearch® applicant tracking system users to expand their social media reach with the new integration to our job posting management tools,” said Gary Zukowski, founder and president of TweetMyJOBS®.
“SmartSearch® has a long history of providing talent management software that centralizes sourcing, recruiting, applicant tracking, and hiring activities in an online database where all the pieces come together,” noted Doug Coull, CEO at APS. “We were an early adopter of social media integrations to our product, starting with RSS feeds and other Web 2.0 technology. SmartSearch leads the way in this hot industry trend.”
The new integration is part of SmartSearch Version 15 upgrade slated for release on in the first quarter of 2011, and is an addition to a number of social media resources already integrated to SmartSearch in 2010 such as ability to post jobs to user’s LinkedIn profile, Facebook page, or Twitter account, as well as share job postings to over 300 sites via AddThis.com.
SmartSearch® also supports networking and referral generation, by allowing employees and candidates to `share a job’ through links to their personal pages. In addition, the system incorporates powerful research tools such as the LinkedIn Company Insider that identifies people at a specified company, with a count of how many are already connected to the user’s LinkedIn account, and the ability to more easily capture and export information into the SmartSearch® database.
With the new integration to TweetMyJOBS®, SmartSearch® users can promote job openings on virtually any social media site. APS is hosting a free demo of TweetMyJOBS® for its customers on February 17, and welcomes prospective clients in the recruitment and staffing industry, vendor partners, and the media to attend.
