Social Recruiting Platform Bullhorn Reach Hits Milestone by Signing on More Than 35,000 Recruiters »

BOSTON, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Bullhorn, Inc. announced that more than 35,000 recruiters are helping put people to work by using Bullhorn Reach. Bullhorn Reach is a social recruiting platform that makes it easy for recruiters and candidates to connect through social media. Using the free Bullhorn Reach edition, corporate HR and individual recruiters can post jobs to their social networks, identify qualified candidates and increase their presence through their customized and search engine-optimized profile pages.

According to Bullhorn’s recently released job opportunity report, as of November, every region in the country has shown gains in new job openings since January 1, 2011. This holds true to the latest job figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as well, which indicate the unemployment rate is on the decline (8.6 percent). With the job market slowly showing improvement, the issue becomes putting the right candidates in touch with the right companies.

“Industry adoption of Bullhorn Reach happened at an explosive pace,” said Art Papas, founder and CEO of Bullhorn. “In just 11 months, more than 35,000 recruiters have signed up for Bullhorn Reach and this momentum has quickly raised the visibility of the entire social recruiting category as a whole.”

Two additional modules, Bullhorn Reach Team and Bullhorn Reach Referrals, were also recently released and contribute to the continued adoption of the social recruiting platform. Bullhorn Reach Team helps entire recruiting teams manage and evaluate the effectiveness of their collective social recruiting efforts, while helping companies build their employment brands. Bullhorn Reach Referrals boosts companies’ referrals by leveraging the aggregate social network reach of employees, company alumni, and other groups in an organized and measurable manner.

“Bullhorn has a keen understanding of the social media industry and recruiting in general. Since our employees play a critical role in our recruiting process, we wanted to make sure we chose a solution that was really focused on giving them a positive experience and an authentic voice throughout the process. Bullhorn Reach does just that,” said Sarah Knight, director of recruiting, Genscape. “I also have to say that the people I have worked with on the Bullhorn Reach team have been professional, energetic and passionate about the product and services they provide. I am very impressed with the attention we have received.”

“Higher One’s human resources department has had to become increasingly savvy at using social media for our recruiting efforts, but utilizing multiple social networks can be time consuming and tedious. We selected Bullhorn Reach as our social recruiting vendor because it allows us to be more productive at sourcing quality candidates and it is the most user-friendly product on the market,” said Erica O’Connor, talent acquisition manager at Higher One. “Also, the Bullhorn Reach Referrals product rocks! We already do a good job of hiring through employee referrals, but the Bullhorn Reach solution will make it even easier for our employees to participate, and it has great tracking and reporting features. I can’t wait to get our whole company on board!”
