Manpower Canada Selects Jobs2Web for Comprehensive Web 2.0 Recruitment Strategy

Employment Services Leader Cites SEO, Social Network Recruiting Capabilities as Reasons for Choice

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 12/02/09 -- Jobs2Web, a Web 2.0 interactive recruiting solutions provider, today announced that Manpower Canada, a world leader in the employment services industry, has selected Jobs2Web to develop a comprehensive interactive recruitment strategy. Using its award-winning technology solutions, Jobs2Web will enhance Manpower's ability to capture quality candidates from the millions of people using Google and Yahoo! to search for jobs.

Jobs2Web's interactive recruiting technology capitalizes on the changing ways job seekers are looking for work online and the ability to track recruiting source effectiveness. In Canada, more than 37,000,000 job searches are conducted each month using Google. In the U.S., that number is more than 250,000,000. With Jobs2Web, companies can tap into this ready-made source of candidates to build and manage a database of prospects, employees, and applicants to fill open positions.

Ken Holec, Jobs2Web's CEO, stated, "Almost 30% of our clients currently use Jobs2Web's solutions to fill non-U.S. jobs. We are gratified that Manpower Canada -- a leader in both permanent and temporary job placements -- has recognized our ability to source quality candidates at a lower cost. We look forward to being Manpower Canada's recruiting partner and further strengthening the company's position as a leader in the market."

In addition to search engine optimization, companies are looking for ways to leverage social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. More than 85% of Canadians over the age of 15 are using social networks and this is quickly becoming an important medium for passive candidate networking. Using Jobs2Web, companies can not only promote jobs through corporate and personal profile pages, but also can extend employee referral programs to these networks automatically and further incentivize employees to add jobs to their profile pages.

"We want to attract the best talent for our clients; therefore, we need to develop relationships with top prospects before they become active job seekers," stated Byrne Luft, Vice President, Marketing for Manpower Canada. "Leveraging social networks and search engine optimization enables us to engage candidates much earlier in the process -- long before they would consider posting their resumes on job boards. This gives us an advantage over our competitors and helps us deliver the high-level candidates our clients have come to expect from Manpower."
