Jobvite Search Launches, Matches Job Listings to Facebook Profiles

Social Recruiting Platform Builds New Job Board to Help Social Job Seekers

BURLINGAME, Calif., October 8, 2012 – Jobvite, the leading recruitment platform for the social web, today launched Jobvite Search. Built specifically to help today’s social savvy job seeker, Jobvite Search matches professional content from Facebook profiles with its database of job listings. Currently Jobvite Search lists jobs from thousands of Jobvite customers, with listings posted and updated in real time. Users can access Jobvite Search’s innovative new approach to a job board through Jobvite’s Job Search Application, and can then find and apply to jobs using their Facebook profile, LinkedIn account, or with a traditional resume.

Jobvite Search’s key features allow job seekers to:

  • Find and apply to tens of thousands of jobs updated in real time, without ever leaving the application.
  • View and track the status for all job applications from one streamlined dashboard.
  • Easily share jobs with social network contacts.
  • Automatically see which Facebook and LinkedIn contacts work for the companies with jobs listed.
  • Join an employer’s “talent pool” by subscribing to their unique job feed.
  • Apply to jobs with their Facebook profile, LinkedIn account and/or traditional resume.

“Jobvite Search was created for the way people approach their job hunt today. Job seekers are more social than the overall workforce – in fact our 2012 Social Job Seekers Survey indicates that 88% have at least one social networking profile, and 76% use social media in their search. As seekers increasingly turn to social sites to find their next dream job, we’re making it far easier for that wide talent pool to find jobs that fit their unique skills and experiences,” said Dan Finnigan, President and CEO of Jobvite. “With Jobvite Search, a user never has to leave their favorite social network to find new opportunities, apply directly with the company and track their status. This is the future of job hunting and recruiting.”

Jobvite’s customers, including Starbucks, Whole Foods and Yelp, use the company's social recruiting solutions to harness the power of social networks and find the best candidates. Jobvite Search aggregates all the current job postings from its customer base (with the exception of employers that opt out) to provide a streamlined social networking resource for busy job seekers. Open to everyone, Jobvite Search also offers employers another social channel to promote their openings and expand their talent pool of potential candidates.

Jobvite Search can be accessed via the Jobvite homepage at www.jobvite.com. Users that don’t sign in with their Facebook account will still be able to view job listings, but won’t have access to the complete set of job hunting tools Jobvite Search offers.
