Hiring Managers Can Get 'Introduced' to Job Candidates

August 7, 2008 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - An Internet-based jobs site has unveiled a new functionality allowing employers to be formally "introduced" to candidates after being matched by the hiring service.

A news release from the McLean, Virginia-based Jobfox, said the site offers interactive online tools and staff members to introduce matched candidates with appropriate hiring managers via e-mail and text messaging.The site also helps employers build social networks made up of job candidates that are added to the employer’s My Jobfox Connections candidate network, which is dynamically updated with the most current candidate contact and career-progression information

The company said it can help employers hire for immediate needs and stay in touch with available candidates for future staffing requirements.

“With Jobfox Intros, high-match job seekers are immediately moved to the top of the resume stack,” said Rob McGovern, CEO of Jobfox, in the announcement. “Rather than submitting resumes into a black hole, qualified candidates are personally introduced by Jobfox, so they can skip directly to the interviewing step. Candidates want connections with highly matched employers, not just long lists of undifferentiated jobs.”
