WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 16, 2010—Staffing firm The Buzz Company has chosen Jobmagic as its social media recruiting platform to tap into the largest talent pool in the world.
The Buzz Company matches Web, multimedia, writing and other creative professionals with freelance and full-time placements in the Chicago area. Founded in 1995, The Buzz Company specializes in building long-term relationships with companies and organizations of all sizes.
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. 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.
The Buzz Company was looking for a way to create a greater social media presence. The company had a Facebook page, but it was not very active. “There was no real reason for people who `Liked’ us to keep coming back,” said Anne Sweeney, creative recruiter at The Buzz Company. “Jobmagic’s Facebook-native job postings are one element that keeps people coming back.”
The staffing firm now uses Jobmagic’s social recruiting platform to post social media optimized job openings to its Facebook page and automatically tweet those openings at times when people pay most attention. Candidates can apply for jobs without ever leaving Facebook—the world’s largest passive talent pool—search all job openings on the company branded microsite, and even join the company’s talent network if they are not yet ready to apply but want to be informed of new opportunities.
Sweeney has seen a modest investment yield definite growth in the number of candidates applying for jobs. “LinkedIn and some of the others online recruiting resources can be so expensive for corporate accounts. Jobmagic allowed us as a small company to expand our social media reach in an affordable way.”
“The Buzz Company’s story exemplifies what our platform is all about,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “We are committed to providing staffing firms of all sizes with the innovative yet cost-effective recruiting tools they need to be successful.”
