-- Free Services, Mobile App Included in New Product Suite --
NEW YORK – October 17, 2012 – Today at The Onrec Global Recruiting Summit 2012, the annual international recruitment conference featuring top thought leaders and industry experts, online job-matching service TheLadders announced a new business model, along with a suite of innovative products designed to optimize the candidate sourcing and hiring process. During his presentation at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on “The Value of Information: Strategies for Innovation (Beyond a Tweet, Check-in or Status Update),” TheLadders’ COO and co-founder Alex Douzet unveiled the company’s news to corporate recruiters, recruitment agencies and suppliers.
Effective immediately, recruiters and hiring managers can enjoy an unrestricted search of TheLadders’ database, and post an unlimited number of positions, all with the free Passport product. Additionally, to deepen the level of engagement between recruiters and job seekers, recruiters can now send targeted alerts about their open positions, as well as receive fresh leads and communicate with candidates on-the-go with TheLadders’ free mobile app, Recruitable, available at the Apple iTunes™ App Store.
“High unemployment rates and the proliferation of mobile have dramatically changed the job-seeking landscape, which means that our sourcing techniques must shift, as well,” said Douzet. “Since launching almost a decade ago, we have re-envisioned our business with a mobile-first lens to seize the mobile disruption.”
Based on the premise that mobile recruitment is only in its nascency, Douzet asserted that the next three years present a tremendous opportunity for TheLadders to win a significant share of the mobile market. With its recruiter app, Recruitable, already in-market, the company will apply the same logic to the development of its consumer-facing mobile app, expected to launch in early 2013.
With more than five million members, TheLadders has been committed to finding the right person for the right job since 2003. With a unique suite of personalized products and resume services, this career-focused online service helps job seekers connect with employers and recruiters more effectively and efficiently. Given its heritage as the leader in the $100K+ job search, TheLadders is dedicated to the science behind the job search and optimally positioned to help all career-driven professionals in finding the right jobs. Expanding services to include sub-$100K+ positions allows recruiters and employers more options when looking to hire professionals at other stages of their careers. TheLadders is headquartered in New York. For more information, visit TheLadders Blog and theladders.com. Your career is our job.™
