SmartPost's E-Media Recommendations Engine Maximizes Recruting Budgets

New sites extend reach and combine expert recommendations to ensure sourcing success

NEW YORK, NY— April 14, 2010 — SmartPost, the innovative online job posting and sourcing product from Bernard Hodes Group, continues to set the standard for best-in-class metrics and sourcing options with the addition of several new job board destinations to its ever growing e-media library.

SmartPost has added several new sourcing channels to support industry niches including gaming, healthcare and quality assurance, as well as many specialty sites that address unique audience profiles including individuals transitioning from the military or who may be disabled, to those focused on MBA careers.

SmartPost continues to make it easier for clients to not only reach an incredible number of job boards, but be more successful, at a lower cost, by providing targeted options in various industry segments. However, as the number of job boards and sourcing channels increases yearly, SmartPost also offers the industry’s leading e-media recommendations engine to help customers find the right sites for their open positions. SmartPost allows recruiters to save time and money by automatically identifying the most appropriate sites based on several criteria including job title, industry, function and location.

“Our e-media recommendations engine reaches into our extensive library of over 12,000 destinations and brings back the most appropriate sites in many categories including niche, association, diversity, geography, free, college, and mainstream job boards, as well as some of today’s most talked about social media outlets,” said Carmen Doherty, senior director, SmartPost.

The options inside SmartPost range in price from free postings on smaller or lesser known boards to those more recognized or major boards. They also offer heavily discounted bundled media packages only available to SmartPost customers. SmartPost can also manage your contracted inventory and media subscriptions.
Determining a job board’s authenticity, credibility and relevancy is a time-consuming and arcane process. “A recruiter could spend a lifetime becoming familiar with all the job boards available to them that the SmartPost system scans and extracts from…and then spend even more time determining which sites are the most optimal to use based on performance. SmartPost does it all for them,” adds Doherty.

On top of the combination of expansive reach and fine-tuned recommendations, SmartPost’s capabilities make it easier for an ATS/TMS that needs a posting component to prove the value it brings to its clients’ sourcing efforts. Metrics reports and recommendations target the most relevant sites, which mean the ATS obtains more accurate posting measurements and benchmarks on source of hire through the entire talent acquisition lifecycle.  With access to thousands of job boards in the most in-demand niches as well as exclusive values and coverage, SmartPost is changing the definition of a sourcing management tool.

SmartPost, from Bernard Hodes Group, optimizes any organization’s recruitment marketing investment with a software solution that uniquely combines innovative job posting and sourcing technology with customer service and strategic consulting. The thousands of options inside SmartPost’s job distribution channels offer the greatest reach in the industry, including posting opportunities only available to SmartPost clients through strong media partnerships.
