Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
QuietAgent today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Harris Connect, the USA's leading high school alumni social networking and community provider, to promote its unique online jobs solution to over 20 million USA high school graduates.
The partnership will promote QuietAgent's safe and anonymous Job Offer Agent to alumni from selected high school online clients of Harris Connect. Alumni who opt to use the Offer Agent will ensure they are always in the market for a better job. QuietAgent CEO Jason Kerr explains that QuietAgent "targets the 90 percent of internet users who aren't interested in looking for a job right now, but would love to be notified if the right job opportunity comes up."
Harris Connect, an organization that has spent over 40 years enabling educational institutions and alumni to forge stronger connections with and among each other, is introducing this trusted careers partner to selected high school partners, offering employers and recruiting agents the exciting prospect of connecting with those alumni who participate in this new service.
"Over the past ten years we've been approached by many different companies who were interested in partnering with us to solely gain access to these users," said Bill Harris, Chairman & CEO of Harris Connect. "Rarely did a company offer to provide a service that would be of value, while maintaining the high security and privacy standards we require." He explained that in considering an online job partner, privacy and security of members' information was paramount. "When we talked to QuietAgent we realized we had found the right partner - a company that takes privacy and security as seriously as we do," Harris said.
Harris Connect will first introduce QuietAgent to the alumni of its selected high school partners through a very personalized online marketing program. From May 15, 2007, recruiting agents (QuietAgent's highest volume users) will be able to join QuietAgent and use the specialized Recruitment Agency Edition to search for anonymous talent, under an 'all-you-can-eat' flat monthly service fee. Employers, on the other hand, join and search QuietAgent for free and only pay if a suitably matched short-listed person agrees to talk to them.
As the market leader providing integrated solutions to colleges, universities, private and independent schools, membership associations and other organizations, Harris Connect will also consider enabling these partners to offer the QuietAgent opportunity to their alumni and members in the near future.
