Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Most job hunting sites focus on serving the needs of recruiters and employers, but newly-launched Jackalope Jobs (http://jackalopejobs.com/) puts the job seeker first. Jackalope Jobs is a job search platform that intelligently searches millions of job openings from around the Web and automatically finds with whom the job seeker is connected that could assist in their job search.
Users can log into Jackalope Jobs quickly and easily using their social networking credentials on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Plaxo -- eliminating the time spent registering for yet another account. Unlike job boards, Jackalope Jobs doesn’t rely solely on a keyword search. Instead, the jobs returned are based on the number of connections you have to the open position, keyword relevance, recency of the job ad posting, and more.
“Today’s jobs are best found through networking connections,” said Sudy Bharadwaj, founder and CEO of Jackalope Jobs. “That’s why Jackalope Jobs puts such a heavy emphasis on your connections instead of just job titles.”
Job seekers can customize their search results, sorting them by job listings or the number of connections they have to a particular position. For each job listing, current or former employees that are associated with the company are included in the results. Job seekers also have the option of reversing the search -- looking at your connections and the open positions in which they can help.
To keep the entire search organized, job seekers have the option to “Reach Out” to their connections via their associated social media account or email all from the convenience of their Jackalope Jobs dashboard. Job seekers can also “Watch” jobs they aren’t yet ready to apply to, as well as utilize a powerful filtering system as they “Filter” their search results by connections, locations, companies, industries or education.
“With how difficult the hiring process is for job seekers in today’s economy we want to give job seekers a better chance,” said Bharadwaj. “Our goal for Jackalope Jobs is to enable job seekers to compete differently by leveraging your social connections.”
