Boston (PRWEB) May 15, 2006
Bullhorn, the global leader in On Demand staffing and recruiting software, today announced a partnership with CareerBuilder.com to create, in real-time, the sourcing of candidates and the posting of jobs between Bullhorn and CareerBuilder.com. The partnership will include joint development, marketing and sales. Bullhorn will make two technologies, codenamed Jobcast and Dragnet, available as part of the partnership, in early Q3 ’06 (please see today’s related announcement, Bullhorn Advances the Sourcing of Candidates).
“Bullhorn and CareerBuilder.com are delivering on the vision to dramatically decrease the time to search and match high quality candidates to job orders, creating a compelling competitive advantage for our customers,” said Barry Hinckley, president and co-founder of Bullhorn. “By combining Bullhorn’s On Demand, integrated front office, which provides 360 degree visibility into all candidate activity, with the extensive employer and job seeker reach of CareerBuilder.com, our companies are delivering the right solution to significantly increase the productivity of recruiters.”
Bullhorn’s Jobcast, an integral component of Bullhorn, will enable the real-time posting of jobs between Bullhorn and CareerBuilder.com, which will also include the parsing of applicant responses directly into Bullhorn. Staffing professionals will be able to add, update and delete jobs on CareerBuilder.com through Bullhorn’s user interface. By providing recruiters with the capability to create candidate search agents to search and harvest resumes against open job orders in Bullhorn, Dragnet brings a great deal of innovation to the sourcing of candidates through CareerBuilder.com. Dragnet will then automatically parse the highest ranked candidates into the Bullhorn database. As a result, recruiters will have 360 degree visibility into all candidate activity, including up-to-date information that includes notes, activities and a history of client interaction. Through the use of Jobcast and Dragnet with Bullhorn, staffing and recruiting professionals will achieve higher placement rates, greater customer satisfaction and stronger growth and profitability.
“Forty-two percent of hiring managers say they will hasten the hiring process in 2006 in the face of increased competition for top performers,” said Eric Waldinger, Strategic Services Director of CareerBuilder.com. “Our partnership with Bullhorn will help drive the productivity of recruiters, and lead to faster and higher quality placement of candidates.”
