Experience, Inc. Launches Proactive Post for Effective, Entry-Level Talent Recruitment

New Technology Provides Faster, More Efficient Way for Employers to Identify and Onboard Entry-Level Workers

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - Experience, Inc., the nation's leading provider of career matching services for college students, recent graduates and over 37,000 employers, formally launched a new product today aimed at helping employers recruit entry-level candidates with greater efficiency and effectiveness. Proactive Post delivers top-notch, entry-level candidates based on specific employer requirements, including geographic location, undergraduate major, job experience, diversity requirements, leadership ability and GPA. In addition to the targeted on-line job postings offered through Proactive Post, an "invite-to-apply" service is included which helps to easily eliminate unqualified candidates before employers invest more recruiting time and resources.

In today's economic climate where millions of young college graduates are out of work, it is all the more difficult to find the best matched candidates in a sea of applicants. Moreover, according to National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the average cost of recruiting a new college graduate for a full-time position was $8,947 in 2010, up more than 50 percent from the year before. 

To date, over 160 companies have successfully beta-tested Experience's Proactive Post. This technology addresses the problems that frequently occur with traditional online recruiting. When hiring entry-level talent, frequent hurdles include a lack of candidates, receiving too many unqualified candidate resumes, not enough candidates in the right geographic location, and not enough diversity in the candidate pool. Proactive Post helps employers avoid these common challenges by providing them with the ability to set specific criteria and expectations when combing through potential candidates. In essence, Proactive Post "matches" employers with pre-qualified entry-level college graduates.

"Proactive Post allows an employer to develop and handpick talent in real-time from our database. This helps ensure that candidates meet their specific requirements in order to avoid the costs and headaches associated with entry-level employee turnover," said Jenny Floren, CEO of Experience. "There's value in providing employers with access to the candidate information they need, while also eliminating candidates which do not meet the employers' criteria, in order to make educated, smarter decisions on talent the first time around."
