ExactJobMatch takes a better, more direct approach than traditional job boards and social networks

According to the United States Department of Labor, underemployment reached 16.5% in September 2011. ExactJobMatch.com, a Bay Area startup company, is doing something about it by connecting recruiters to job seekers while still maintaining member confidentiality, enabling underemployed professionals to look for jobs without risking their current employment.

“There are too many stories out there about talented people losing their jobs because they’ve been caught looking for a new one. We specialize in connecting top professionals to recruiters without the risk associated with job boards or social media,” said Mike Springer, President of ExactJobMatch. “Times are obviously tough right now, and our private job search site is a best of class solution both for professionals that have jobs but want better ones, and for the underemployed that want to maintain online privacy. Whether they’re looking for more money or moving to a different city, ExactJobMatch.com helps our members accomplish their career goals, with a minimal 10 minute time investment, without risk of their job search being discovered, and we’re a free service.”

“Unfortunately it is generally legal to fire someone for looking for a new job,” said Garry Berger, Principal of Berger Legal LLC. “And in those situations that don’t allow it, it’s usually difficult for an employee to make a case against the former employer. I really like what ExactJobMatch is trying to accomplish. It’s amazing to me that nobody’s done this before. Great idea! Great new service!”

With ExactJobMatch, professionals starting a private job search use a system of check boxes to build a personal profile around the key qualities recruiters find essential to their searches. Professionals also enter their career goals such as making more money, receiving equity, or moving to another city. ExactJobMatch.com's proprietary matching technology suggests mutually beneficial connections to recruiters by cross-referencing recruiter searches with professionals' career goals. Recruiters then email potential candidates about jobs through ExactJobMatch.com so that professional member identities stay hidden. Only when professionals are interested in a position do they release their full profile and personal contact information to the recruiter.

“Obviously it’s possible to get a job using traditional job boards or social networks,” said Mike Springer, President of ExactJobMatch, “but the reality is, even if you’re not worried about losing your job, odds are you’re working long hours which doesn’t leave most people with the time or energy necessary to conduct an effective private job search. ExactJobMatch takes a better, more direct approach than traditional job boards and social networks,” said Mike Springer. “The idea is that by focusing on what matters most to recruiters, and cross referencing recruiter searches with our members’ professional goals, we enable professionals to be found by more recruiters for more and better job opportunities. And, because we offer complete privacy to our professional members, coupled with our proprietary matching system, recruiters get access to top quality hidden candidates with less work and less waiting. I don’t need to tell anyone how tough the economy is right now, but we’re doing our part to make a difference.”
