WALTHAM, Mass., August 31, 2010—Boutique executive recruiting firm Sand Hill Search has chosen Jobmagic to be its social media recruiting platform.
Sand Hill Search works mainly with venture-backed software startup companies, partnering with clients in a consultative approach to find the executives and key individual contributors who are crucial to the success of these new ventures. The firm, based in Woodside, California, uses Jobmagic’s Facebook-native, social media optimized job postings to attract and recruit tech-savvy candidates.
Jobmagic, the leading social media recruiting platform, helps companies and recruiters to reach the best talent across 300+ social media networks and the Web. The comprehensive platform includes advanced technologies for social media sourcing, automatic job publishing to social media, referral hiring, talent network management and semantic profile-based matching.
Recruiters at Sand Hill Search can now quickly and easily publish jobs to all social media destinations: Facebook tab and wall, LinkedIn® status, and Twitter accounts. With Jobmagic’s Intelligent Scheduler™, job postings are automatically published during the time slots that people are most likely to see them.
“Because we specialize in software start-ups, the people we’re looking for are those who use social media,” said Bill Schultz, managing partner at Sand Hill. “Jobmagic enables us to easily reach our target group.”
“Being able to reach talented professionals on Facebook, the world’s largest social network, is a powerful competitive advantage for recruiting firms,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “We’re looking forward to continuing helping Sand Hill get high-quality results from their social media efforts.”
The company receives a steady stream of candidates by using Jobmagic’s tools, but it’s the quality of the candidates that has impressed recruiters. Sand Hill has been using a well-known technology-focused job board, but although they get more candidates from that service, the candidates are not as well-suited to the job postings. “It’s a quality versus quantity issue,” Schultz said. “We are looking to replace job boards and LinkedIn with Jobmagic as our first choice for job postings.”
