McLean, VA (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
Jobfox, the nation’s fastest growing online job site, today announced 'Break Through' – a powerful new online service matching job seekers to hundreds of thousands of previously hidden and unadvertised jobs located on company websites, twitter posts, social networks and major job sites.
85 percent of available jobs are not advertised to the general public, which means job seekers who rely on traditional online job sites expend a significant amount of time and energy chasing a small fraction of available jobs. Break Through unlocks that hidden ’85 percent’ of opportunities by matching individuals to relevant openings posted on 14,000 company home pages, 100,000 daily Twitter job postings, and more than 1,000 major online job sites – all from a single location.
“It would take more hours than job seekers have in the day to track down all of the jobs from all of the online sources that Break Through places at their fingertips,” said Rob McGovern, Chairman and CEO, Jobfox. “Backed by powerful search and matching technology, Break Through, in just a few short months, has proven to be a true ‘breakthrough’ for the thousands of users getting hired 72 percent faster than the national average, and we believe it will be game-changer for the market.”
In addition to delivering virtually every available job on the market, Break Through also empowers individuals to:
- Identify LinkedIn, Facebook Connections With Links To Vacancies– Most job sites’ answer to integrating social networks forces job seekers to plod through thousands of vacancies to find any useful connections in their network. Break Through flips this process on its head by allowing the job seeker to confidentially view all available and relevant job openings with employers connected to their LinkedIn and Facebook contacts – eliminating countless, frustrating hours from the job search process.
- Optimize Their Social Network Presence – 79 percent of employers conduct online searches of candidates before scheduling an interview. Break Through lets each user create a social network ‘About Me’ page where the job seeker can selectively show employers contacts that can be used as references, sales leads, etc. As importantly, this page is highly visible to employers conducting online searches with Google and other search engines.
“Traditional sites and strategies are failing job seekers in a stagnant labor market with nearly five jobless workers per opening,” added McGovern. “By putting virtually every available job on the market at a job seeker’s fingertips, Break Through helps a candidate become that ‘one in five’ who lands the job. More than that, Break Through is about hope and helping those on the verge of giving up turn the corner to find that great job.”
Break Through pricing varies, but can start as low as $10 per month. For additional information on Break Through visit http://www.jobfox.com/breakthrough.
