Wanted Technologies Offers Quick Job Search

Looking for a new job? Dreading the tedious process of finding the best one? Imagine if the search took less than five seconds.

Wanted Technologies Corp. can't get you an interview, but it's hoping to reduce the time it takes you to land one. An upgrade of Wanted's search-engine software now lets users search more than 150 online career sites in less than five seconds, according to marketing VP Tracey Lee Batsford. "The service saves time for the end user and helps our partners attract and retain eyeballs," Batsford says.

Wanted Jobs Online is a hosted service offered to E-businesses with career centers. Users enter job specifications, and the software searches through more than 3 million job openings posted on multiple sites. When users click on an entry in a list of jobs that match their needs, they are sent to the site where the posting originated.

Hoover's Online started using Wanted Technologies on its business site a few months ago, and the feature is already one of the most popular ones in its career-development section, says channel manager Clemon Goodin. Hoover's previously used downloadable software, but now uses the upgraded Java Applet that integrates the service into its site. "Roughly 40% to 50% of the viewed pages in this site consist of the job bank pages," says Goodin.

Available immediately, the online hosted service's average cost is $5,000, depending on the amount of traffic.
