SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS: Simply Hired joins forces with LinkedIn and Twitter

Job search engine and recruitment advertising network Simply Hired has teamed up with LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to enhance its search capabilities.

Job hunters can now discover business connections at the organisations returned in Simply Hired's search results via LinkedIn. As a user's network grows, their search results will always reveal the most recent and relevant connections.

The new feature is an evolution of Simply Hired's Who Do I Know? tool, which allowed users to connect to LinkedIn from a job listing to find out if they had a contact within the organisation.

A new "share" feature enables job seekers to post job openings with their friends and followers on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter as well as via email, helping users locate relevant opportunities.

Simply Hired say the new function will see employers and job boards benefit from increased visibility and traffic when a job posting goes viral.

"The job search process can be incredibly time consuming, with some job seekers spending the equivalent of a full-time job on their search," said Francis Larkin, senior product manager, Simply Hired.

He added, "Our goal was to help increase the exchange between job seekers' personal networks and our job search engine to provide a faster, more efficient job search experience."
