SAN FRANCISCO – February 25, 2014 – Jobscience, the leader in CRM-based Recruiting, today announced that Teach For America, winner of ‘Fortune Magazine’s 2012 100 Best Companies to work for,’ has selected the Jobscience Recruiting application to manage its sourcing, recruiting and applicant tracking company-wide. Teach For America has used Jobscience’s innovative CRM (Contact Relationship Management) solution to hire 750 full and part-time people since going live with the solution in May 2013.
“Baby boomers are starting to retire, which has caused talent wars in many industries, such as education, where there are not enough people with the right skills to replace them,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “This phenomenon and the demand for specialty-skilled workers are making recruiting talent more difficult. But organizations like Teach For America are approaching talent acquisition like customer acquisition and applying a CRM methodology to the recruiting and hiring process. This approach creates key relationships that generate a pipeline of the top talent in their industry – even before there are open positions, which gives organizations a real advantage for acquiring the best talent.”
Teach For America works in partnership with communities to expand educational opportunity for children facing the challenges of poverty. Founded in 1990, Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of outstanding individuals of all academic disciplines to commit two years to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the movement to end educational inequity. Today, more than 11,000 corps members are teaching in 48 urban and rural regions across the country while over 32,000 alumni work from across sectors to ensure that all children have access to an excellent education.
