A new survey from Bullhorn Reach, a 13-year-old Boston company that makes technology products for employers and recruiters, shows LinkedIn still dominates as the preferred spot for recruiters to post job listings, and job seekers to find them.
The Northeast is the liveliest region in the country for social recruiting, according to a report out Tuesday by Bullhorn Inc., a Boston recruitment software company.
Bullhorn found that LinkedIn leads among the frequency of usage by recruiters and their effectiveness for sourcing candidates, followed by Twitter, with Facebook coming in third.
New bookings and revenue for the company’s applicant tracking and CRM platform grew 40% over 2010, while over 35,000 recruiters chose Bullhorn Reach for social recruiting since its February launch, one of the fastest-spreading applications in the industry’s history.
Recruitment platform Bullhorn Reach threw cold water on the hot topic of Facebook as a job-recruiting leader, saying LinkedIn and Twitter are better.
Boston-based recruiting software company Bullhorn Inc. will hire up to 60 new employees as it prepares to go public in the next two to three years. Founded in 1999, the company currently has 177 employees.
Most small business owners struggle to find and recruit great employees even when unemployment rates are relatively high. Bullhorn CEO Art Papas shares some insight on a few ways small businesses can take advantage of techniques used by professional recruiters.
Social media can increase the odds of getting noticed in the game of “resume roulette’’ that hiring managers play when sorting through endless job applications, said Art Papas, chief executive of the Boston recruitment software company Bullhorn. Employers, he added, are starting to shift their focus from job sites like Monster and CareerBuilder to sites like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
Bullhorn Reach CEO Art Papas helps us break down the numbers and look ahead to the new year. Here in Massachusetts, we continue to outpace the rest of the country when it comes to jobs. Where are the new jobs coming from in 2012, and how do you go about landing one?
Bullhorn Reach is getting good marks from users who have been testing it for a few months, but what’s most impressive is that it can give recruiters an early heads-up about their connections who may be preparing to “go active.”
Bullhorn Reach is one of the few systems in this category that I’ve seen that successfully adapts the recruiting process to include changes social media has had on the industry.
