Jobmagic Delivers the Industry's First Social Media Optimized Job Postings

Any company or recruiter can now dramatically increase their social recruiting ROI with social media optimized job postings

Waltham , Mass., July 20, 2010— Jobmagic, the largest social media recruiting platform, today made available the industry’s first social media optimized (SMO) job postings. Companies and recruiters can now instantly optimize all their job postings and dramatically increase their return on investment.

Until now, companies have had to experiment with social media recruiting strategies in a hit-or-miss fashion without a comprehensive solution. Jobmagic now offers a systematic, standard-setting approach to social media recruiting. The approach is defined by seven essential components which are simultaneously optimized by the Jobmagic platform.

During the beta testing phase, the social optimization delivered a dramatic increase of unique candidates from the social Web, whom recruiters could not find with other tools. The optimization is currently available on the Jobmagic platform in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.

“Our customers’ social recruiting ROI is on average less than two months and in many cases only a few weeks,” said Jindrich Liska, chief executive officer and founder of Jobmagic. “This is a breakthrough in social recruiting which finally enables companies and recruiters to leverage the full potential of social media.”

Jobmagic’s seven components of SMO job postings are:

Social Media-Native Postings — Job postings show natively in Facebook®. This increases the rate of candidate applications by 30—50 %.

Time — The fully automated Intelligent Scheduler™ publishes jobs at times when people pay most attention.

Content — Rich content encourages sharing into referral networks. Job postings optimized through Jobmagic’s platform feature a complete company social media footprint, private career micro-site, talent network sign-up and deep employment branding.

Sharing — One-click sharing enables high sharing rates across 300 social media networks.

Engagement — Embedded interactive features such as a company’s YouTube channel and blog increase engagement and make the employment brand memorable.

Visibility — Jobmagic publishes jobs to all social media destinations (e.g. Facebook tab and wall, LinkedIn® status, Twitter account). In addition, the platform uses semantic matching and advanced filtering to send automatic job notifications to well-suited candidates.

Personalization — Personalization gives recruiters powerful competitive advantage in attracting the right talent. Jobmagic’s job postings feature recruiter’s social media profiles and a blog, area of expertise, personalized micro-site and a direct messaging link: “Ask the Recruiter™.”
