SilkRoad Partners with Simply Hired
Partnership with World's Largest Job Search Engine Expands SilkRoad Clients' Reach
Winston-Salem, NC -- April 23, 2009 -- SilkRoad technology, a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today they have partnered with Simply Hired, the world's largest job search engine and advertising recruitment network, indexing more than five million job listings worldwide.
SilkRoad's partnership with Simply Hired will allow SilkRoad customers to expand their reach to potential candidates. Jobs indexed by Simply Hired through OpenHire™, SilkRoad's recruiting management solution, will provide customers the ability to distribute and include their jobs in the organic listings on Simply Hired's network of over 5000 new locations, including social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Plaxo. This partnership will allow SilkRoad customers to reach both active and passive job seekers in new and innovative ways.
In addition, OpenHire customers will benefit from the automated tracking integration with Simply Hired. By automatically populating the source code when a candidate applies for a job through OpenHire, this will ensure more accurate ROI measurements by recruiters wanting to track their online recruiting efforts. OpenHire clients can take advantage of Simply Hired's free Job Rank™ reports, which contain information about how well a company's jobs are performing in the Simply Hired searches, including the number of clicks for that listing, the positing of the listing within the search results, similar searches, and the names of competitors with similar titles.
"We are looking forward to working with SilkRoad's OpenHire customers to assist them in distributing their jobs to an even broader range of outlets," said Simply Hired's Tejas Saraiya, Director of Marketing and Product. "Simply Hired's integration with OpenHire will make it even easier for companies to reach not only active candidates, but also those passive candidates which are often times so hard to reach."
Simply Hired aggregates jobs from thousands of sources including major job boards, company websites, news outlets, and niche vertical sites, allowing job seekers "one-stop searching." In addition to helping people to find their next job in the most efficient way possible, Simply Hired provides a "Who do I Know™" function that allows searchers to look up possible contacts at potential new companies via LinkedIn; a venue to research salary information; links to maps to help determine commuting details and other job seeker tools.
Companies have been using OpenHire to find and track top talent since 1998. Their patented job board integration, career site portals, intelligent searching, screening tools, and candidate communication tools make it easy to streamline workflow and lower recruiting costs, all while improving efficiency. These features, combined with Simply Hired, will allow SilkRoad customers to reach the maximum number of candidates in the most efficient way possible.
"We are very excited to be working with Simply Hired," said SilkRoad COO, Brian Platz. "They have found an innovative and forward-thinking way of taking something that is typically an arduous task for job seekers, and making it simple and efficient. This is the same goal we work towards when providing talent management solutions to our customers."
