Top job search site launches free resume search
STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Indeed.com today announced the launch of Indeed Resume, an open search engine for resumes. Indeed Resume provides employers and recruiters instant access to millions of qualified candidates on the #1 job site. Indeed Resume is free during beta and available at http://www.indeed.com/resume.
“Resume search on Indeed is as fast and simple for employers as our job search is for job seekers,” said Chris Hyams, Indeed’s VP of Product.
Unlike the subscription-only resume databases of job boards, Indeed Resume is an open search engine. Searching for resumes is free and unrestricted and does not require an account. Employers can contact job seekers for free during the beta period.
“With no up-front costs or per-seat licenses, Indeed Resume is for everyone from the small business owner looking to make one hire to the Fortune 500 company filling thousands of openings,” said Hyams.
Indeed Resume enables 1-click apply to select jobs on Indeed.com, and offers job seekers privacy protection that traditional resume databases lack. Initial contact is brokered by Indeed and personal contact information (phone number, email, and address) remains private until the job seeker chooses to share it.
Searching for candidates is made possible using familiar “what” and “where” search boxes. Instant Search suggests common search terms and automatically displays results as you type. Resumes may be previewed without ever leaving the search results page, allowing employers to quickly view the details of candidates. Employers can set up unlimited saved searches and receive daily emails with new and updated resumes matching their search criteria.
Indeed Resume represents a significant expansion of the company’s services to employers and recruiters, building on its leadership as the #1 pay for performance recruitment advertising network. For more information about Indeed Resume, please visit http://www.indeed.com/resume.
