Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 9, 2009
Following the January release of its Pointwing 1.4 recruiting software, VCG has scheduled a free Webinar on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. EST to demonstrate Pointwing Smart Match, its powerful new context-sensitive semantic resume search engine.
Pointwing is the first-ever recruiting software to integrate an advanced semantic search engine into its application, and it could not come at a better time for recruiters. In today's troubled economy success demands that recruiting and staffing companies re-double their focus on speed, efficiency and accuracy in candidate placement. The problem for many is the time and effort required to search through mountains of resume data to find the most elusive of candidates that best fits a customers' needs.
Pointwing Smart Match resume search is capable of reducing recruiters' time-to-find 100-fold. It gives recruiters the fastest, most intelligent and accurate means of finding the ideal candidate for every job requisition. That means that recruiters will spend less time and effort in finding the "just right" candidate.
Pointwing Smart Match goes far beyond first-generation keyword-based searching, matching and ranking used in all other recruiting software applications. Instead it uses sophisticated context-aware semantic matching of profiles between job orders or candidate profiles and candidate resumes. This artificial intelligence, when applied to resume searches, offers more speed and greater relevance in the results.
The free online Webinar will demonstrate the effectiveness and performance of Pointwing Smart Match on a database of more than 40,000 resumes. The demonstration will show how Pointwing Smart Match gives recruiters the ability to not only quickly and easily find candidates that match the requested career and experience profile, but to also weight their search for people who fit that profile today, not years ago.
Recruiters, staffing coordinators, as well as managers and owners of staffing and recruiting business operations can register to attend the free online Pointwing demonstration Webinar scheduled for Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
