The iHireÂ health care market sites are unique in the online job world in many ways:
1. Proprietary technology provides superior job-to-candidate matching, giving employers higher quality resumes. Resumes overall come in at a lower volume because many unqualified candidates are weeded out.
2. Resume database search service is not available. Most iHireÂ candidates are currently employed and are unwilling to have their resume public. Also, the matching technology makes resume searches unnecessary; they are seen as contrary to the timesaving aspect of the sites.
3. The health care industry is serviced with multiple niche target sites. This market segmentation is the primary step toward truly focusing on an industry and its recruitment needs.
As reported on March 8, 2001 by Cyber Atlas, a Harris Interactive study, "Computing in the Physicians' Practice," finds that 93% of physicians access the Internet either from the clinical work place, a personal office, home, or a combination of the three.
Forrester Research of Cambridge estimates that $411 million was spent for online recruiting in 1999, compared with 182 million in 1998. That number is expected to continue to grow in coming years. Forrester surveyed 50 large, Internet-savvy U.S. employers who expect 44% of total recruitment spending to be on the Internet by 2004.
