Job Search Organizer StartWire Eclipses 500,000 Active U.S. Users
StartWire, a game-changing Internet job search organizer, today announced it has surpassed 500,000 active U.S. users as of October 2012. The rapidly increasing user base is due to the company’s unique ability to successfully close the résumé black hole between job seekers and employers. Since the launch in 2011, StartWire has helped job seekers accelerate their job search process via automatic application status updates from a rapidly growing network of more than 7,000 employers.
“We are very proud of our growth, as it signals the need for and efficiency of our tools that offer job seekers automatic updates on applications from thousands of employers,” says Chris Forman, CEO of StartWire. “StartWire will continue to help open communication between applicants and organizations, without adding extra work for recruiters.”
StartWire also announced today thatApplicationConnect, their recently launched tool for employers, received the HR Product of the Year award from Human Resource Executive®. Employers are successfully using ApplicationConnect on their corporate career sites and/or Facebook recruiting pages allowing them to provide user-friendly updates on job applications. ApplicationConnect also allows applicants to provide feedback about their recruiting experience, offering HR managers insight into their recruiting process.
Each fall, the editors of Human Resource Executive® choose the HR and training products they believe represent the best of what vendors introduced to the market during the past 12 months.
“Human Resource Executive® has been evaluating HR products and conducting this competition for 24 years,” explained David Shadovitz, editor of Human Resource Executive. “Our goal has always been to identify products and services that clearly offer value to the HR community while demonstrating innovation.”
ApplicationConnect works with every major applicant tracking system (ATS), so recruiters simply need to update a candidates’ status in their existing ATS. For more information, visit StartWire.com.
