Second-generation job-matching service launches; CEO Blair Heavey to Speak at the ONREC 2008 Conference.

We have created a patent-pending common language process that matches candidates to jobs and companies to candidates with an in-depth, industry-specific knowledge of the exact skills sets required for the position

Together with a network of leading employers, job candidates and high traffic content sites, My Perfect Gig, Inc., announced its new online recruiting service that transforms the way companies and candidates define, search for, and connect with each other.

My Perfect Gig, Inc. officially launched its second-generation job-matching service and technology, proven in beta test over the last year. Several large corporate partners have converted to paying customers and are successfully using the service. Established by recruiting and online services veterans, including the founders of BrassRing, My Perfect Gig represents a new "knowledge-based" environment. It provides job candidates insight into the value of their unique skills and identifies employers' "must-have" skill requirements, along with highlighting the corresponding talent supply and demand throughout the country.

Now speaking a common language, companies and candidates can quickly find and connect with each other, according to Blair Heavey, chief executive officer, who will be presenting the new knowledge-based approach at ONREC 2008 in Chicago on September 10, 2008.

"The recruitment industry is a multi-billion dollar market that hasn't progressed much beyond the days of classified advertising," said Heavey. "Employers and candidates are still 'posting and praying' using inefficient job requisitions, resumes and endless searches. Both need a more efficient recruiting process, where they speak the same language to easily and conveniently interact and find a quality match."

Heavey will discuss the new frontier of knowledge-based recruiting. Its employer site, SourceView, automatically analyzes employer requirements to distill essential skills for positions, and delivers to recruiters and hiring mangers the profiles of candidates who match these skills. Likewise, its MyPerfectGig.com site provides candidates an insider's perspective about requirements for open positions and then facilitates a direct, private and secure connection with companies.

"We have created a patent-pending common language process that matches candidates to jobs and companies to candidates with an in-depth, industry-specific knowledge of the exact skills sets required for the position," said Mark Dane, founder and vice president of engineering.

My Perfect Gig is leading this new recruiting approach with an initial focus on the engineering industry, Along with its corporate partners, the company is partnering with qualified engineering candidates from a broad array of disciplines including Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical and Chemical engineering, and specific high-traffic content sites such as EE Times.com.
