Recruiting.com Gets Web 2.0 Facelift
SEATTLE — Sept. 14, 2006 — Jobster Inc. CEO Jason Goldberg announced Wednesday at the Electronic Recruiting Expo in Hollywood, Fla. a wholly re-engineered Recruiting.com that embraces user-generated content and user-rankings to feature the most interesting posts. He also showcased new Jobster employer service features and enhancements to Jobster.com, which include advanced tagging, user search and expanded user profiles.
A video podcast of the presentation is available for free online on the Jobster Web site (www.jobster.com/corp/erewebcast.jsp?source=PR20060914).
“Web 1.0 was about getting it online. Web 2.0 is all about making it work,” said Jobster CEO, Jason Goldberg. “Employers are rapidly embracing Web 2.0 technologies like Jobster and our Recruiting.com site to participate in the next wave of online recruiting.”
Since acquiring Recruiting.com in June, Jobster has helped increase the visibility of the site in Web searches through search engine optimization and Web site marketing. Already the leading recruiting industry blog site, Recruiting.com aggregates content from more than 70 recruiting blogs as well as drives industry thought leadership through original content created by Recruiting.com’s team of industry experts. The re-engineered Recruiting.com enables users to submit news articles and blog posts and most importantly organize the posts by relevance and importance through ranking the content.
“With the new Recruiting.com, the recruiting community has a system to better deal with the increased amount of recruiting related information being created daily,” said Recruiting.com founder and editor, Jason Davis. “Each story, whether it’s submitted by a user or written by a recruiting.com author, is just a starting point—readers can contribute at any time by adding comments to a feature or submission.”
In addition to announcing changes to Recruiting.com, Goldberg also discussed Web 2.0 technologies and the interactive web’s impact on recruiting. “Jobster is harnessing Web 2.0 technologies to help job seekers, employers and people inside companies come together based on common interests to make successful career matches.”
New Jobster functionality reduces friction in the system by making it easier for users to add information about themselves through the use of tags, makes connecting with one another as easy as leaving a sticky note and specific experience and personality questions for users to answer that make the user profiles even more appealing to hiring managers and recruiters.
Jason will be taking his presentation to the Web 2.0 community on Sept. 20 when he gives the keynote address at the New New Internet Conference (TNNI) at The Ritz-Carlton McLean, Virg.
