Having jobs included automatically from this integration will ensure that all OpenHire customers are taking advantage of Indeed’s massive audience of active and passive job seekers.
Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) February 18, 2010
SilkRoad technology, a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today the integration of the OpenHire job delivery platform with Indeed.com. With millions of job seekers and more job searches per month than any other job site, Indeed is the leading search engine for jobs.
SilkRoad's integration with Indeed will allow SilkRoad customers to expand their reach to potential candidates. Jobs delivered directly to Indeed from OpenHire will be included in Indeed’s organic results and its network of more than 10,000 websites.
This integration will allow SilkRoad customers to reach the single largest audience of both active and passive job seekers on the Internet. SilkRoad technology has existing agreements in place with Jobfox and Simply Hired.
Through this integration, OpenHire customers will benefit from implementing automated tracking for all jobs delivered to Indeed. By automatically populating the source when candidates apply to jobs from Indeed, more accurate ROI measurements can be made by recruiters wishing to track their online recruiting efforts. OpenHire customers can also take advantage of Indeed’s free Job Analytics™ reports, which contain information about how well a company's jobs are performing on Indeed. OpenHire customers can use this report to gain insight into what keywords candidates are using to find their jobs, what job titles are being clicked on most often, and how their jobs are performing compared to other companies on Indeed.
“We are excited to introduce SilkRoad’s OpenHire customers to the benefits of having their jobs included on Indeed,” said Samuel Fitzroy, Director of Alliances at Indeed. “Having jobs included automatically from this integration will ensure that all OpenHire customers are taking advantage of Indeed’s massive audience of active and passive job seekers.”
Companies have been using OpenHire to find and track top talent since 1998. Their patented job board integration, career site portals, intelligent searching, screening tools, and candidate communication tools make it easy to streamline workflow and lower recruiting costs, all while improving efficiency. These features, combined with Indeed’s reach, will allow SilkRoad customers to maximize the exposure of their jobs to candidates in the most efficient way possible.
Having jobs automatically included on Indeed also makes it even easier to sponsor positions and get additional targeted job seeker traffic.
"We are very excited to be working with Indeed," said SilkRoad Director of Product Strategy, Thomas Boyle. "They have simplified the job search process for job seekers, while building an incredibly cost-effective tool for companies to attract the best talent possible.”
