Workopolis introduces Social Job Share allowing employers to harness the full power of social media in recruiting

Toronto, Ontario - October 7th, 2013 - Workopolis announces Social Job Share, the latest innovative online recruitment tool from Canada's leading career website.

Social Job Share enables Workopolis customers to attract and hire high-quality candidates from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and hundreds of other social networks through one-click job distribution. It also allows companies to build their own online referral network by leveraging their current employees’ social connections to identify anyone with relevant skill sets.

With nearly 17 million Canadians on Facebook, and an estimated two-thirds of the country's population using social networks, Workopolis launched Social Job Share to help recruiters reach dramatically larger talent pools that they might otherwise have missed.

"Social Job Share marks the continued evolution of the recruitment solutions that Workopolis offers Canadian employers," said Workopolis President, Kelly Dixon. "We're thrilled to help our clients connect their job opportunities with the most passive and active candidates across the web on the popular sites that more and more Canadians are visiting daily."

Powered by iCIMS, the award-winning recruitment software provider, Social Job Share enables companies to leverage social media to recruit high-quality talent in an easy and cost-efficient way:

  • Social media optimized job postings reach large audiences on over 300 social networks across the web.

  • Fully automated, social broadcast scheduler optimizes publishing times to maximize the visibility of job postings.

  • Existing staff's social graphs are used to find 1st and 2nd level connections with relevant skill sets for a position. A powerful matching algorithm makes building a referral network more effective than ever before.

  • Career videos and links to all of an organization's social media networks to help reinforce an employer's brand.

Available as part of Workopolis' Talent Acquisition System or as a stand-alone service, Social Job Share is the ideal way to easily manage social recruitment and referrals. "The ways that people connect online are always evolving. That's why Workopolis is committed to constantly delivering ground-breaking recruitment solutions that are simple to use, social, and scalable to individual client's needs," said Dixon.
