E-Cruiter Introduces Real-Time Net Recruiting

[Ottawa, CANADA] E-Cruiter.com
has made an agreement with netPCS
Networks
that will allow its clients to use Web consoles,
telephones, and wireless devices to connect live with candidates
interested in their job postings.

E-Cruiter.com is an application service provider offering Internet
recruiting solutions to corporations.

This is the first time that corporations will have access to a
service that empowers them to make or receive multimedia calls with
candidates the instant they enter the company’s career site.

Based on flexible business rules, the E-Cruiter.com netPCS service
will “ring” the recruiter’s computer, cell phone, or PDA, alerting
them that qualified talent is currently visiting their career site.

Using the E-Cruiter.com netPCS console, the recruiter can invite the
candidate to engage in a real-time conversation by phone or text
chat, plus allow the real-time exchange of resumes and other
multimedia materials.

This enables the corporate recruiter to quickly set-up face-to-face
interviews with the best candidates, speeding the hiring process,
reducing job vacancy costs, and improving competitiveness.

“The bottom line in the war for talent is that candidates are hot
commodities and they quickly get snapped up. Companies need to find
new ways to maintain their competitive edge and quickly initiate and
demonstrate their interest in qualified, in-demand applicants,” said
Gerry Stanton, the E-Cruiter.com chief executive officer.

“The integration of the netPCS service within E-Cruiter Enterprise
recruiting portals will provide our clients with the power to respond
immediately, significantly reducing their time and cost to hire.”

The E-Cruiter.com netPCS service is completely Web-based. There is no
hardware or software to install by either the browsing candidate or
e-business customer.

E-Cruiter.com and netPCS will pilot the enhanced version of E-Cruiter
Enterprise recruiting portals during the fall months and release the
capability to market in the first quarter of 2001.
