-Leading SaaS provider introduces part one of a two-part research eBook series for today's job seekers-
MATAWAN, N.J., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, introduces the first in a two-part series of research eBooks designed to provide dynamic data insights on both job seekers and recruiters to assist today's candidates in their job search. The first research eBook in the series, "Start a Successful Job Hunt & Set Yourself Apart: Secret Tips & Tactics for Landing Your Dream Job" is now available for complimentary download on the company's thought leadership site, the Hire Expectations Institute™.
Earlier this year, iCIMS conducted a survey of 700 job seekers and found that more than half were either actively looking for a new job or open to new opportunities. With the percentage of job creation also consistently growing since 2011, those job seekers are in a strong position to find employment, providing they approach the process strategically. By accessing the rich data available within 2,200+ customers' use of the company's flagship Applicant Tracking System, iCIMS Recruit, the Hire Expectations Institute research team was able to analyze more than 1.3 million jobs created in 2013 and survey more than 450 recruiting professionals to provide a better understanding of their hiring practices.
"With the steady growth of job creation in recent years, candidates are now in an ideal position to find and obtain their dream job if they go about their search in the right way," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "The purpose of our research is to give candidates an insider's view of the world of talent acquisition so they may tailor their approach to catch the attention of recruiters in a sea of potential candidates."
According to iCIMS' research eBook findings, 55% of all available jobs are not being actively advertised. This study takes an in-depth look at these "secret" jobs as well as the challenges, needs and mindset of today's recruiting professionals to provide candidates with the information they need to unlock the hidden job market.
Below are a few excerpts from the "Start a Successful Job Hunt & Set Yourself Apart" eBook:
"In addition to this research, iCIMS develops candidate-friendly technology, such as mobile-adaptable online career sites, video screening technology, and progressive social recruiting tools, which allow job seekers to set themselves apart from the pack. Combining these insights with modern recruiting technologies will give both candidates and employers their best chance at finding the perfect match," Vitale concluded.
iCIMS' thought leadership site offers the latest information about industry trends and best practices for employers along with related content specific to job seekers, including the iCIMS research eBook series.
