Madison, WI (PRWEB) October 17, 2007
With rising recruitment costs, many companies now routinely offer financial incentives for their employees to recommend candidates to HR. So many of these incentives go unclaimed because employees have a limited pool of candidates in their social and professional circles, or are reluctant to mix their personal and professional lives. On the other hand, job seekers looking to connect with quality jobs face a daunting task of searching internet job sites and being one of perhaps thousands of applicants for any one desirable position. Worse, they have to accept to have their privacy violated by posting their resume on some sites. Renata Dumitrascu, the founder and CEO of EmployeeBuddy.com, always felt there had to be a better way.
EmployeeBuddy.com was born out of a desire to re-humanize the recruitment process, which, with the advent of the internet, has become mechanical; resumes are parsed by software, employment flaws are magnified, the poisoned dart of insufficient or unfitting experience - a swift qualifier for the virtual delete bin. It is easy to forget in this frenzy that a real person is behind each resume, a hard working person with hopes and family responsibilities and potential. That is why EmployeeBuddy.com does not collect resumes; instead it allows job seekers to create a profile based on their skills, and augment that with a paragraph in their own words about where they are at professionally and what they are seeking. These profiles can then be searched by employees seeking a candidate to refer to their HR department. If a possible match is found, then a conversation initiates between the parties where they can discuss suitability.
EmployeeBuddy.com is based on the notion that people want to help other people find jobs. Employers already recognize the value in this notion, choosing to reward their employees for time spent qualifying and bringing a suitable candidate to them. Although HR and management continue to retain the last word in hiring, through EmployeeBuddy.com, employees are activated as knowledgeable, responsible recruiting parties for the teams of which they are part in their work life.
