itzbig (http://www.itzbig.com), an interactive recruiting network funded by Dallas-based Sevin Rosen Funds (http://www.srfunds.com), announced today that Wayport, Inc., an international leader in the design and integration of applications and software over wired and Wi-Fi carrier grade networks, is utilizing the itzbig network to hire new employees in support of its growth initiatives.

We're a company that has established itself in the marketplace and we have tremendous opportunities before us that require the addition of high-quality key employees, particularly with the recent announcement of the expansion of our headquarters to Dallas.

    "itzbig is the perfect fit for a company like ours," said Rob Contois, Vice President of Human Resources for Wayport (http://www.wayport.com). "We're a company that has established itself in the marketplace and we have tremendous opportunities before us that require the addition of high-quality key employees, particularly with the recent announcement of the expansion of our headquarters to Dallas."

"What separates itzbig from the other sourcing networks is the way they attract working professionals that aren't actively seeking new employment. These 'quiet' professionals tend to be the most qualified individuals for the positions we are seeking to fill. And it's extremely efficient."

Such quiet working professionals do not search for jobs using traditional methods such as the job boards. Instead they need to keep tabs on the market in case their dream job appears, or a life change occurs, causing them to seek out a "Plan B." itzbig's interactive network allows working professionals to privately explore career opportunities while securely matching their skills, goals and experience to opportunities. Additionally, the itzbig network provides very accurate matching, scoring and ranking of candidates and jobs, saving time and money for both job seekers and employers.

"We're excited that emerging technology companies such as Wayport recognize the value that we can provide to their long-term growth strategy," said Jim Hammock, CEO and co-founder of itzbig. "Given the commitment we are receiving from companies like Wayport, Rackspace Managed Hosting and other technology companies, we are pleased with our progress in solving the major problems inherent in using today's online job boards."

Sevin Rosen General Partner Jackie Kimzey added that the arrangement is a win-win for both companies.

"Having itzbig as a resource means Wayport can fully leverage its growth opportunities," said Kimzey. "itzbig also benefits in partnering with companies like Wayport to attract top quality applicants to their network."
