Hire.com Updates Recruitment Software

Businesses planning for the future are looking at recruiting technology now to build relationships with talented IT professionals.

Although the IT job market looks bleak right now, it won't always stay that way. Businesses planning for the future are looking at recruiting technology now to build relationships with talented IT professionals.

To help companies with recruiting, human resources software company Hire.com is rolling out a new version of its Recruiting Center software that will automate the recruiting and pre-screening process by letting recruiters and hiring managers screen and rate job candidates based on criteria necessary to fill a particular job. Recruiting Center is sold as a hosted application which resides on Hire.com's servers and can be accessed with a Web browser. It's priced at $8,000-$90,000 per month, based on the size of the company and solution sets purchased. Upgrades are free.

The software is geared to attract passive job seekers, those who are willing to change jobs if the right opportunity comes along. They're the type of job candidate that headhunters would be looking for, if companies had the money to hire headhunters, says Bob Tate, Hire.com VP of marketing. Passive job seekers want to be in control of the recruiting process, so Recruiting Center 7.0 gives candidates the option to be anonymous by simply providing an E-mail address. The software will alert them when a job that matches their interests becomes available. "Most competitive products require first name, last name, address, E-mail, and password," says Kevin Bethke, Hire.com's CEO. "If you're a passive job seeker you don't want to give that much information."

Businesses that aren't hiring or investing in hiring can face questions about the overall health of the organization and its ability to compete, says Meta Group analyst Maria Schafer. She expects that many companies will continue to invest in hiring and recruiting since the need for skilled IT professionals still exists. Says Schafer: "CIO's are getting worried about the lack of investment in staff."
