Jobscience Offers IBM-Acquired Kenexa Customers a Fast Track to Social Talent

Nolan Gray News

**SAN FRANCISCO – Aug. 28, 2012** – Jobscience, the leader in Social Relationship Management for HR, today announced that Jobscience FastPass is now available to Kenexa customers who have been impacted by IBM’s acquisition of the company. With this program, Kenexa customers have a clear path to deploying best-in-class sourcing, recruiting, hiring, assessment and learning applications that leverage the latest innovations in Talent Management and take advantage of the world’s leading cloud platform.

“At no time in recent memory has the Talent Management space seen so much market share shift to Big Box vendors who lack the agility to provide true innovation in challenging times for hiring,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “Big Box software like Oracle, SAP and IBM may not be the right fit for companies struggling to be agile in a challenging recruitment environment where there are plenty of unemployed candidates, but very few applicants with the right skills. Recouping the costs of acquisitions as opposed to investing in innovation in sourcing, interconnectivity and mobility may leave corporate consumers stuck with products that are obsolete.”

“Since no one knows what will be the next popular social network that companies need to tap into to engage talent, it’s more important than ever for organizations to have the flexibility to choose agile applications that keep up with the rapidly changing Talent Management landscape,” continued Elliott. “We are extending our FastPass program to Kenexa customers so they can easily embrace our leading Social Relationship Management solution on an open platform where they can easily connect to the tools that will best meet their business needs.”

The Jobscience FastPass program is now available to all Big Box software customers forced onto Oracle, SAP and IBM. The program includes:

• Guaranteed 25% discount off a Kenexa, Taleo or SAP recruiting solution contract
• Free 20-day trial of Jobscience Team Edition
• Premier Phone Support for the first 90 days

To take advantage of this program, register at http://info.jobscience.com/KenxaSwitch.html or use http://bit.ly/RTbFPS.

Jobscience Offers First Mass Resume Parser for Talent Management

usernumberoneadmin News

**SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27, 2012 –** [Jobscience Inc.](http://www.jobscience.com), the leader in Social Relationship Management for HR, today announced Jobscience Resume Power™, the industry’s first high-speed mass resume parser integrated into a Talent Management solution. Jobscience Resume Power saves sourcing specialists and recruiters considerable time by avoiding manual data entry and eliminates the high cost of outsourcing bulk resume loads to a professional services organization. Data quality is dramatically improved as complete resume content, candidate engagement history and the originating channel is captured and tracked.

“The reality is that many resumes never make it into a Talent Management system because it can be such a time-consuming process,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “The popularity of social recruiting has added to the complexity of centralizing candidate data from disparate channels. But with Resume PowerTM, companies have a cost-effective way to upload, parse and track every resume, whether it came from LinkedIn, Facebook, a job board, email or a job fair. This improves the quality of their database and results in faster, better candidate placements.”

This breakthrough technology allows recruiters to upload and parse individual resumes or folders of hundreds or thousands of resumes in just minutes rather than days. Paper resumes collected from job fairs and networking events can be quickly loaded into the same system as digital applicants, avoiding inefficient data-entry processes.

“Capturing accurate data about candidates and where they came from is paramount to our business,” said Nicola James, Managing Partner at Thomas Brooke International. “We generate referrals and get resumes from a number of different sources, and it’s time-consuming but important to enter high-quality data into a centralized system. Jobscience Resume Power simplifies and speeds up this process. We can efficiently upload complete information into Jobscience — resume, source, specific job, application stage — where we can track each candidate’s engagement history, improving the quality and accuracy of our candidate information. This helps us know where our top candidates are coming from, so we can most effectively leverage those resources, and also helps us build and maintain meaningful relationships with candidates right from the start.”

## How It Works

Jobscience Resume Power allows users to easily upload individual resumes or folders of resumes from their hard drive into the Jobscience Recruiting application. Uploading is accomplished through a simple drag-and-drop interface that also allows users to select attributes that apply to a resume, such as job, disposition and applicant source.

Once uploaded into the Jobscience Recruiting application, the entire content of the resume is parsed and saved as structured data. Parsed resumes can be immediately searched using keywords or hierarchical position taxonomies to fill current job openings or begin new sourcing and recruiting projects.

Jobscience Resume Power can also help eliminate the challenge of getting information from paper resumes into a digital system. Paper resumes are first scanned with an OCR (optical character recognition) scanner and then uploaded into the Jobscience system. OCR-scanned resumes retain the drag-and-drop uploading, attribution-selection and parsing capabilities.

Jobscience Resume Power is a standard feature of Jobscience Recruiting and Jobscience Team Edition available now at no extra charge to customers.

Jobscience Delivers Facebook Job Board App Integrated with Award-Winning Recruiting Solution

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, 2012 – Jobscience Inc., the leader in Talent Management for the Social Enterprise, today announced a Facebook Job Board application for its Recruiting solution. This new social recruiting app enables corporations, staffing agencies, and executive search firms to post and manage job openings on their Facebook business page from within Jobscience’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Jobscience customers avoid the complexity and extra time needed to manage two separate job boards – one on their website and another on their Facebook page.

“Social networks have become essential tools for recruiting talent, but many firms still are struggling to figure out how to use them effectively for recruiting,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “Facebook is where millions of job seekers are – so companies need a simple and effective way to spread the word about employment opportunities within this popular network. Our new Facebook Job Board app simplifies the process so that companies can tap into the largest social network in the world – with very little extra effort.”

The next big thing in recruiting strategies is reaching a greater number of qualified candidates through social media networks, according to an April 2012 study conducted by Research Now. The research found that Facebook continues to gain importance as a recruiting tool as it is cited as the second most important social media network – after LinkedIn. The same study found that 36% of corporate recruiters expect to use Facebook more this year than they did in 2011.

“Team Member Referrals are our highest source for new hires. Facebook is a friendly place for team members to tap their personal connections,” said Concetta Lewis, People Team Lead, Daxko. “The Jobscience Facebook Job Board application provides an easy way for team members to let their Facebook connections know about employment opportunities at Daxko and direct them to not only our company Facebook page but also a page that contains information about our open positions where they can immediately apply.”

Online recruiting research lab Potentialpark found that HR professionals prefer interacting with students, graduates and early career professionals on Facebook. (Source: Potentialpark Online Talent Attraction & Communication Study, 2011). The report found that few students and graduates have accounts on business networks, such as LinkedIn, and they don’t update their profile and network as often as they do on their Facebook profile. The study surveyed more than 30,000 students and graduates worldwide and analyzed the online career presence of more than 500 companies in the US, Europe and Asia.

The Jobscience Facebook Job Board app is immediately available as part of the Jobscience Recruiting Spring ’12 Release. Current Jobscience Recruiting customers can use the app for no additional charge. Jobscience Recruiting is the 2011 winner of Brandon Hall’s Gold Award for Best Advancement in Talent Acquisition Technology.

Jobscience Survey: Facebook is a ‘New Essential’ for Social Recruiting

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO, June 25, 2012 – Jobscience Inc., the leader in Talent Management for the Social Enterprise, today announced the results from a survey conducted by Research Now, which found that 36% of U.S. corporations plan to use Facebook more for recruiting this year than last. Facebook was cited in the survey as the second most important social network for recruiting – following LinkedIn.

The research shows that social recruiting is here to stay, as almost 60% of respondents agree that the next ‘big thing’ in recruiting strategies is reaching a greater number of qualified candidates through social media networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook. More than half (57%) of the corporations surveyed expect to use LinkedIn more than any other tool for recruiting – more than job boards, email marketing and employee referral programs.

“Using social networks to find candidates for current job openings has become a common strategy for recruiters,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “But the real value of social recruiting is when companies continually engage with people through social networking – so when an appropriate job opens up – the person is familiar with the company and has a propensity to want to work there. It’s about social sourcing and building pipelines of talent – so your talent pool never runs dry.”

Social networks are not just important tools for recruiters; candidates are using them to research companies. This study revealed that 52% of U.S. corporations believe that social networks are an important venue for businesses to attract candidates.

“As Facebook becomes the most relevant place on the web – it is also putting a face on the ‘employment brand’ of companies,” added Elliott. “Information about a company is no longer solely controlled by recruiters. Candidates and employees are using social media to gather information about companies. If companies want to attract top talent, they need a strategy for their employment brand – which includes monitoring how their brand is perceived on social networks, facilitating a social dialog and giving compelling reasons for people to work at their company.”

Which Social Network is the most Important?

Within the Research Now survey, LinkedIn was cited as the social network that matters most with 86% of respondents giving it top bill, followed by Facebook at 51% and Google+ at 27%. Respondents found Twitter to be the least important social network for recruiting – at only 16%. But the gap between Facebook and LinkedIn could shrink, as 36% of companies plan to use Facebook for recruiting more this year than last year.

About the Survey

The data from this study was drawn from a nationwide online survey of more than 150 HR and recruiting executives, directors and managers. The survey was conducted in March 2012 by Research Now on behalf of Jobscience. The goal was to uncover attitudes and opinions about the use of applicant tracking systems, recruiting solutions and social networks to search for qualified job candidates.

usernumberoneadmin News

San Francisco — August 20, 2012 — [FinancialForce.com](http://www.financialforce.com/), the cloud applications company, today announced alliances with [Jobscience](http://www.jobscience.com/), a native Force.com Social Relationship Management solution for hiring, and [AccountAbility Solutions Inc.](http://accountabilitycorp.com/), a native Force.com fixed-asset and remote-asset tracking application provider. Jobscience and AccountAbility both offer best-of-breed, FinancialForce.com-ready solutions that take advantage of the power and accessibility of the cloud to offer industry-specific and specialized business applications. These alliances extend FinancialForce.com’s growing ecosystem of application and implementation partners, continuing the momentum the company created in the first half of the calendar year.

In addition to the new partnerships, the company also announced that Eric Moreau, formerly with SAP, has joined the company in the newly created position of partner success manager. The role was created to nurture FinancialForce.com’s growing partner ecosystem, which also includes implementation partners such as Baker Tilly, Centerstance, CLD Partners and IconATG, as well as a rapidly growing list of ISV partners, including Docusign, Rootstock, Scribe and Xactly.

## Jobscience-FinancialForce.com Alliance to Optimize HR Processes

Staffing and professional services firms can now use the combination of FinancialForce.com and Jobscience to find the best people to staff projects, to capture time entered and to invoice customers for services delivered. Since both solutions are built on the Force.com platform, the apps are inherently integrated, sharing a common data model, security model, workflow engine and reporting tools. Jobscience’s agile Social Relationship Management solution brings a unique combination of social, mobile and CRM processes to talent management, keeping corporations and staffing agencies connected with and attracting top talent. For the past four years, Jobscience has been awarded the AppExchange Customer Choice Award in HR and Recruiting by salesforce.com customers.

“Many of our customers are staffing firms who are recruiting and placing personnel at a client’s location,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “By coupling Jobscience and FinancialForce.com, they can seamlessly track hours and bill the client in an ‘order-to-invoice’ end-to-end solution that is highly flexible and scalable. Being a FinancialForce.com partner has greatly enhanced what we can offer our customers.”

## AccountAbility-FinancialForce.com Alliance Enhances Asset Management, Integration of Depreciation Journals

By integrating with FinancialForce Accounting, AccountAbility’s growing customer base has an easy, cloud-based way to manage and record the appropriate depreciation journal entries for assets. Fixed Asset Tracker from AccountAbility Solutions is a complete fixed and remote asset-tracking application. It tracks assets assigned to or on loan to users, accounts, contacts or other locations. In addition to tracking assets on loan to employees, it tracks additional business-critical information such as warranty expiration dates, warranty service organizations, insurance policy information and more. For just a few cents a month per asset, AccountAbility allows companies to track the fixed assets they give to employees or contractors, saving thousands in missing fixed assets.

“We are excited to be a FinancialForce.com-ready partner,” said Gordon Derk, president, AccountAbility Solutions Inc. “Through our association with FinancialForce.com, we are able to offer completely integrated asset tracking to our joint customers with a 100% cloud-based solution that is completely integrated with FinancialForce Accounting. Not only does Fixed Asset Tracker generate and post depreciation transactions, it tracks the location and supporting information for expensed or capitalized assets.”

In addition to the inherent integration of a common platform, AccountAbility has been an early adopter of FinancialForce ClickLink™ to provide point-and-click configuration of posting rules used to push asset-related transactions into the General Ledger. ClickLink provides a “clicks not code” approach to the definition of field mapping and document posting rules, dramatically reducing the effort required by Force.com ISVs to integrate with FinancialForce.com’s applications.

## Expanded Internal Support for the Growing FinancialForce.com Ecosystem

To better serve and support this growing partner ecosystem, FinancialForce.com also added SAP veteran Eric Moreau in the new role of partner success manager, where he will help partners best take advantage of their FinancialForce.com relationship from both a technological and marketing perspective. Moreau’s appointment follows numerous new partnerships that have already been announced in the first half of calendar year 2012, including partnering with Scribe, Zuora, Rootstock and Baker Tilly. Moreau has 14 years’ experience working in the partnership space, including nine years at SAP as a senior solution advisor.

“The rapid growth of our ecosystem is great validation for the power and potential of the cloud,” said Jeremy Roche, CEO, FinancialForce.com. “We have come a long way from the old ERP approach.

Jobscience Acquires Atomkeep to Help Job Seekers Control Their Social Identity

Nolan Gray News

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6, 2012 — Jobscience Inc., the leader in Social Relationship Management for Hiring, today announced the acquisition of Atomkeep, a pioneer in social profile management. Atomkeep helps users sync their profile information on social networks, job boards and other Internet sites. Users gain a streamlined way to validate and control their social identity across multiple sites. Accessing user-validated accounts helps recruiters and employers avoid cases of mistaken identity and potential liability issues.

“It has become common practice for employers and colleges to request access to social media sites and use the information to screen applicants,” said Jobscience CEO Ted Elliott. “Job seekers need to control their social identity and validate what they are willing to share with employers.”

On June 26, 2012, the California Assembly Judiciary Committee unanimously approved Senate Bill 1349, which seeks to prohibit California colleges, universities and businesses from requiring a student or prospective student to disclose their username or account password to social networking sites. A U.S. congressional committee is considering the Social Networking Online Protection Act (SNOPA), which would forbid employers from requiring job seekers or workers to hand over their social networking passwords as a condition of employment.

“Employers want to rely on validated social information, and job seekers need the tools to control their public identity. Atomkeep is a first step for Jobscience in bridging the candidate’s needs with an employer’s request to understand the social graph of future employees.”

Atomkeep helps users easily ensure that all of their social network profiles from sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Monster, Yelp and YouTube are accurate and up to date. Users simply build a profile on a single website and then publish it to all of their accounts. Users can then give potential employers or universities permission to access their validated and updated social profiles — which improves the accuracy of the information and eliminates potential mistaken-identity situations.
