Jobvite kicks A$$ right? I think so. And today they’ve got some great news to share with everyone. Today marks the release of a free social recruiting tool to help recruiters with their sourcing activities. It’s different than your normal sourcing tool and really gives you an idea of the effectiveness of the full Jobvite experience.

I’ve used it this morning but I haven’t gone through a complete review just yet.  I will certainly do so this week and report back with my findings, but I can tell you it is different than the sourcing tools you are using today and certainly worth the try. It’s free!

Here are the key features of the new tool:

Anne Murguia, Jobvites VP of Marketing say: “It’s completely free, and makes it easy for anyone, at any company of any size, to use the social web to find the best candidates for job openings. Jobvite Share combines the exponential reach of social networks with real-time tracking to provide a targeted, analytical approach to online recruiting.”

Key Jobvite Share Features:

Share By entering a URL or job description, users get short, trackable Jobvite links to share anywhere on the social Web. Users can send Jobvites to individual contacts or post to social networks, blogs and job boards. The Jobvites are optimized for each social network, and the user can post to multiple networks at once, creating a far more efficient recruiting process.

TargetUsers can instantly select and target appropriate contacts to share a Jobvite in their social networks or email address books; Jobvite matching technology selects the most relevant profiles from the user’s network for the job. Those recipients can pass on the Jobvites to matches in their networks as well – quickly expanding Jobvites’ targeted reach across the web to find more qualified candidates.

TrackUsers can track and label multiple shortened links to see results for each source in real-time. Jobvite Share provides the metrics needed to see what works – and what does not – in job marketing and distribution, including views, clicks, forwards and clicks to apply; all metrics are tracked by individual channel (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, email) and can follow referrals as they spread across the web.

I’m sure we’ll see more free social recruiting tools announced in the near future, because there is so much interest in social networking. Social recruiting seems free at first, but of course there are a lot of considerations and it takes a lot of work. I expect more software to come out like this one that automate various aspects of social recruiting. We will be sure to write about any social recruiting services, but especially ones like this that are free for recruiters.

*Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, but rather a quick objective review of a new social recruiting tool. However, Jobvite has been a client at other times, so please know this and consider all your options when making a purchasing decision.
