New Confidential Job Search Site Connects Recruiters and Job Seekers.
Came across a interesting new job site: ExactJobMatch.com today introduced a free service that confidentially connects job seekers with recruiters through a proprietary matching algorithm. Unlike traditional job boards, ExactJobMatch.com keeps member identities hidden from recruiters, only releasing details once a candidate has reviewed an opportunity and approved the connection. More than 200 recruiting firms are participating in the project at launch, and the site is actively recruiting new members.
“Until now, professionals had few efficient ways to search for a new job without the risks of revealing their search to their employers, or maintaining online privacy while unemployed,” said Mike Springer, President of ExactJobMatch. “ExactJobMatch enables professionals to look for jobs without risking the one they have. Recruiters, in turn, find hidden job candidates who aren’t active on social networks or job boards. It’s a win-win.”
Professionals starting a confidential job search use a system of check boxes to build a personal profile around qualities that recruiters find essential to their searches. Professionals then enter their career goals such as making more money, receiving equity or moving to another city. Recruiters search on these qualities and ExactJobMatch.com’s proprietary matching technology cross-references the recruiter’s search with the professionals’ career goals yielding mutually beneficial connections. Recruiters then email potential candidates about positions, while ExactJobMatch.com keeps member identities hidden. Only when professionals are interested in a position do they release their full profile and contact information to the recruiter.
“ExactJobMatch is really exciting and long overdue,” said Stephanie Spatz, Principal of Spatz Staffing and Recruiting. “I’ve been a recruiter for more than 10 years and have long been frustrated with the existing set of tools out there. ExactJobMatch finds me better caliber professionals for my searches in a fraction of the time it takes using other tools. It provides access to people a recruiter would otherwise never find. I find highly-qualified candidate leads with my searches, enabling me to avoid 80 percent to 90 percent of my usual cold calling. And, when I do reach out to candidates, they respond much faster than with other systems. It’s like a confidential online matchmaker between recruiters and professionals. It’s simple, effective, and has tremendous potential.”
“We have a better, more direct approach than traditional job boards and social networks,” added Springer. “By focusing on what matters most to recruiters, and cross-referencing recruiter searches with our members’ professional goals, we enable professionals to be found by more recruiters for more and better job opportunities than any other system in the market. Because we offer complete privacy to our professional members, coupled with our proprietary matching system for a confidential job search, recruiters get access to top-quality hidden candidates with less work and less waiting.”
