Jobscience Mobile App Waves Goodbye to Paper Resumes

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO – Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference – Aug. 31, 2011 – Jobscience, a leading Talent Relationship Management provider on [Force.com](http://www.force.com), today announced Jobscience Mobile, the industry’s first mobile Talent Management app leveraging [Force.com](http://www.force.com), [salesforce.com](http://www.salesforce.com)’s social enterprise platform for employee apps. The first release of Jobscience Mobile extends the efficiency, personalization and compliance benefits of sourcing prospective employees to networking events, campus visits, and informal recruiting interactions in the field. The announcement was made today at Dreamforce 2011, the cloud computing event of the year. Jobscience will be in booth #315 in the Dreamforce Expo.

“Paper resumes are a thing of the past – top talent job seekers today expect companies to find and interact with them online,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “With Jobscience Mobile, job seekers can stop bringing printed, one-size-fits-all resumes to networking events and campus recruiting visits. Recruiters can start every application process out digitally – eliminating time consuming scanning and data entry processes.” Recruiters can use Jobscience Mobile from a smartphone (Android, BlackBerry and iPhone) or Internet tablet (Android tablet, iPad) to kick off the job application process by inviting just-met candidates to reply with their resume. Job seekers can personalize their resume and job application. Additionally, this communication thread helps recruiters track the quality of sourcing events in the field.

Resumes submitted to Jobscience Mobile are parsed into the Jobscience TalentCloud application, which leverages the Salesforce CRM best practices to enable companies to gain, retain and grow employees through the full TRM lifecycle for talent optimization. Hiring managers can also use Jobscience Mobile to quickly provide feedback on applicants after interviews – no matter where the interview occurs. HR professionals can use Jobscience Mobile to speed the on-boarding process by utilizing smartphone and internet tablet cameras to take photos of passports and driver’s licenses – required for citizenship verification on an employee’s first day.

“Customers coming to Dreamforce will have the chance to see some truly innovative approaches that partners like Jobscience have taken in leveraging the capabilities of the [Force.com](http://www.force.com) platform,” said Ron Huddleston, vice president, ISV Alliances, [salesforce.com](http://www.salesforce.com). “Apps like Jobscience Mobile continue to push the social, open, mobile and trusted capabilities customers expect from the [salesforce.com](http://www.salesforce.com) ecosystem.”

Global IT Service Partners Sell, Deploy and Support Jobscience in APAC, Europe and the U.S.

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO – October 17, 2011 – Jobscience, a leading talent relationship management provider on [Force.com](http://www.force.com), today announced that its TalentCloud solution is now being sold and supported by eight professional IT service partners in APAC, Europe and the U.S. These partnerships help multinational companies to centralize the recruitment, onboarding, training, and management of employees, while simultaneously leveraging the tremendous cost-savings and flexibility of [Force.com](http://www.force.com), [salesforce.com](http://www.salesforce.com)’s social enterprise platform for building employee-facing social apps.

“As companies expand their workforce into new regions, they face significant talent acquisition, employee on-boarding and training challenges,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “By embracing a CRM approach to human capital management and leveraging the power of Jobscience TalentCloud on the [Force.com](http://www.force.com) platform, they can turn global talent acquisition, development and management challenges into a competitive advantage.” Jobscience has partnered with professional IT service providers across the globe, including: 2cloudnine, Cloud Consulting, [ForceBrain.com](http://www.forcebrain.com), GlobalOne, ITBconsult, Nuage Group, WebResults and westbrook International to sell, deploy and support its TalentCloud applications. These companies provide business process consulting, data migration, implementation and maintenance services to TalentCloud customers.

“Many of our clients have offices in multiple regions and need insight into the performance of these business units as well as support for local requirements,” said Adam Edmondson, director 2cloudnine. “They need a Talent Relationship Management solution that can be centrally managed, but accessible to employees and managers in all regions. The Jobscience TalentCloud applications have the unique flexibility to configure country-specific business rules and user-specified language preferences with a few clicks. This highly configurable, cloud-based approach provides our customers with rapid business insight without the need to build complex IT infrastructure.”

“As the last few years have shown us, companies need to plan for change,” said Ambrose McGinn, CEO at westbrook International. “We’ve seen companies start workforces in new regions, upsize, downsize, reorganize and acquire other companies. All of these changes put pressure on the HR and operations processes within an organization. But because the Jobscience TalentCloud applications are built on the [Force.com](http://www.force.com) platform – finding, on-boarding, training or managing dozens, hundreds or thousands of employees quickly in multiple regions – becomes manageable and consistent.”

Jobscience Delivers Winter ’12 Release of Jobscience Recruiting

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO – November 8, 2011 – Jobscience, the leading Talent Relationship Management provider on [Force.com](http://www.force.com), today announced the availability of the Winter ’12 Release of its award-winning TalentCloud Recruiting application. This new version helps companies expand qualified candidate pools by searching the entire work history and education of each candidate, expanding address validation internationally, leveraging industry leading social recruiting capabilities and improve data tracking to ensure effective EEO data collection.

“Today’s high unemployment doesn’t mean that employers are quickly and easily filling open positions,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “In fact, it’s quite the opposite. HR is buried in resumes from unqualified applicants and struggling to meet the increasing requirements to remain EEO compliant. The reality is that the Tech Talent Wars and the Baby Boomer Skill Gap are keeping many jobs unfilled as more companies tap into the global marketplace to attract top talent.”

“The overwhelming need for superior employee quality is driving a rethink in HR,” said Denis Pombriant, managing principal at Beagle Research. “This new version of TalentCloud Recruiting is a great example of a solution that hones the targeting in both the application and recruiting processes on a global scale by applying a CRM-style approach to hiring. By putting the candidate at the center of the process rather than using a transactional approach for each application area, companies and applicants save time and that often means money. There’s a lot to like here because Jobscience leverages the [Force.com](http://www.force.com) platform to deliver one of the most reliable and scalable solutions in the industry.”

“There is definitely a talent war going on and qualifying candidates is our biggest issue,” said Jody Hilton, CEO of Strategic IT Staffing. “We are excited about this Winter Release – particularly the Extended Candidate Record Search and the new social media functionality – which we expect to help us efficiently expand pools of qualified candidates for our clients and in turn, place people in roles at companies where they can be successful.”

Key new capabilities within TalentCloud Recruiting include: Dynamic Job Application, Extended Candidate Record Search, EEO Compliance Engine, Global Recruiting and Apply with LinkedIn.

Dynamic Job Application – Candidates are often limited by the number of positions they are able to apply for at a company, either because the job board doesn’t allow it or the process is too tedious to answer the same questions repeatedly. It is also a liability for employers to have inconsistent answers from applicants. The Dynamic Job Application function using artificial intelligence to look up all past applicants from candidates and determine what information they have already provided, considering the date freshness rules from the employer. This makes the system smart enough to never ask a candidate to answer the same questions twice, which makes a positive impression on the candidate and improves compliance requirements for the employer.

Extended Candidate Record – The challenges of the recent job market have more candidates relying on parttime, temporary and contract jobs. But in order to get an accurate view of an applicant, all past work history, job titles and education should be considered. TalentCloud Recruiting now parses an Extended Candidate Record and ensures that recruiters have a complete picture of each applicant, which improves the accuracy of candidate searches and increases the total pool of candidates.

Global Recruiting – As more companies expand into new markets and/or tap into emerging markets for top talent, they need a worldwide recruiting solution. New globalized functions allow hiring managers to duplicate or clone job orders and have their postings automatically update. Additionally, global address validation ensures that companies are looking at a real candidate and that their address is valid. Apply with LinkedIn – Jobscience TalentCloud was one of the first Applicant Tracking Systems (ATM) integrated into ‘Apply with LinkedIn’, which now comes standard with the Winter ’12 Release. For the first time, companies can offer job seekers the speed and simplicity of applying for a job using their LinkedIn profiles and uncover relationships within an organization to help make an introduction with hiring managers.

EEO Compliance Engine – As the number of requirements and applicants rise, EEO compliance has become an increasing challenge and legal liability for large companies. In order to remain EEO compliant, companies need to track potential candidates across race, gender, age and veteran status in addition to their reason for rejection.

The EEO Compliance Engine allows companies to record, audit, report and display their hiring decisions based on EEO compliance needs. The engine allows ‘rollover’ which keeps track of candidates in similar jobs and across multiple applications. Jobscience TalentCloud Recruiting Winter ’12 Release is immediately available. Pricing is based on the number of users and usage types.

usernumberoneadmin News

SAN FRANCISCO – January 18, 2012 – Jobscience, a leading Talent Relationship Management provider on [Force.com](http://www.force.com), today announced that the company has appointed Erin Jacobs as Vice President of Marketing and Jason Gasper as Vice President of Sales. In order to accommodate the demands of a 75% revenue increase in the past year, the company has also doubled its U.S. office space in New Hampshire, which houses its research and development team as well as professional services and customer support.

Jobscience’s client and revenue growth accelerated during 2011 with a 75% revenue increase compared to 2010, and [Force.com](http://www.force.com)-based license annual contract value more than tripled. Interest from new markets also increased, with international revenues accounting for 20% of total revenue. The company’s international success has prompted professional IT service providers across the globe to ink strategic partnerships with Jobscience. Partners such as: 2cloudnine, Cloud Consulting, ForceBrain.com, GlobalOne, ITBconsult, Nuage Group, WebResults and westbrook International now sell, deploy and support Jobscience TalentCloud applications.

“Surprisingly, the unemployment numbers are not an accurate reflection of the difficulty of finding great talent in the marketplace,” added Elliott. “Many companies are struggling more than ever to find qualified candidates within an overwhelming pool of unqualified applicants. Jobscience TalentCloud enables corporations and staffing and recruitment agencies to lower recruiting costs and secure more top talent by creating a pipeline of highly skilled candidates.”

As Vice President of Marketing, Erin Jacobs drives all marketing activities – including branding and lead generation for the company. Jacobs brings 15 years experience leveraging cost-effective marketing tactics to find prospects and nurture customer relationships. Jacobs has been a vital marketing leader for Cloud companies such as Mindjet, SlideRocket and Demandbase. She guided the marketing teams at VerticalResponse and launched successful demand generation campaigns for Informatica, InQuira and Nortel Networks.

“Jobscience has a unique opportunity to change Human Capital Management – by empowering businesses to treat talent acquisition like customer acquisition and by helping companies build relationships with great people who define the future of their enterprise,” said Jacobs. “Applying a CRM approach to hiring puts relationships with people at the center of the process rather than treating hiring as a transaction.”

As Vice President of Sales, Jason Gasper oversees sales strategy, management and operations for Jobscience’s growing sales team, which more than doubled in 2011. Gasper is a proven sales leader with 15 years managing sales and training functions at Merck, Procter & Gamble and Datascope. Most recently, Gasper served as Director of Sales, Western U.S. and Canada for Solta Medical.

“HR is the next significant business application that CIOs and CFOs want serviced from the Cloud – but they want it on a proven, highly scalable and reliable platform they can trust,” said Gasper. “Jobscience TalentCloud is built on one of the most trusted platforms enterprises use today. It’s one thing to put HR in the Cloud – but Jobscience has put HR within an Integrated Cloud Infrastructure that is truly enabling the social enterprise.”

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](http://http//www.researchnow.com/en-US.aspx.com/), 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.”

Since 2003, Hargis has served as the Adjunct Professor of Organizational Development at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachutes. Hargis has a M.S. in Human Resource Development from Northeastern University and a B.S. in Business Administration/Management from Northern Arizona University.

“Large companies are starting to experience the effects of the ‘Baby Boomer Skill Gap,” said Hargis. “Despite the fact that unemployment continues to be high – finding, training and retaining top talent in many industries is becoming much more difficult. Companies need to take both a broad and long-tail view of recruiting and employee referral programs. Jobscience has the only TRM system on the market that approaches talent acquisition like customer acquisition and has the flexibility to easily tap into public and private social networks.”

## 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.

“Strategic sourcing using a CRM system to build and cultivate relationships is how companies are going to continue to find top talent in their industry,” said Rehder. “Jobscience takes a relationship approach to recruiting, which enables companies to build pipelines of potential candidates – even before they have an open position. This is the technology necessary for leadership in TRM.”

Hargis has 15+ years experience in Workforce Management, which he leveraged as a contributing author to Elements of Successful Organizations, recently published by The Workforce Institute™ at Kronos Incorporated.
