TalentBrew Adds Location-Based Job Functionality; First of Several Enhancements to TMP Worldwide's Industry Leading Recruiting Platform

First-to-Market Functionality in TalentBrew Recruitment Platform Improves the Way Job Seekers Find Relevant Jobs by Leveraging Location Information and Displaying Related Content

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) - TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications, LLC, a leading global technology-enabled talent acquisition company that leverages software, advertising and creativity to deliver award winning products and services, announced today details of the latest release of its TalentBrew recruiting platform. Recent enhancements include a first-to-market focus on street address and office locations, providing TalentBrew users with an improved candidate searching experience and the ability to view information beyond the job description on either a desktop or mobile device.

TalentBrew enables job seekers to do more than just find a job; it empowers them to concentrate on building their careers by matching them to the most pertinent positions. With the latest release of TalentBrew, TMP has further enhanced the way candidates are presented with job opportunities. TalentBrew can now include unique information related to the hiring employer's specific location such as maps, commute times and images that allow job seekers to see additional content about each opportunity before they apply. A key component of the new location features is that it does not require a client or their applicant tracking system (ATS) to send an address for every job description; using the latest technologies and drawing from its significant innovation, TalentBrew generates and delivers the address mapping.

The new release also empowers job seekers with an advanced search function that enables them to search for jobs based on their proximity to a certain zip code or city. Using TMP's updated global city and zip code database, job seekers can search for opportunities within a maximum distance of either miles or kilometers, ensuring they only receive results for positions within that designated radius. Such advancements save job seekers time, as they can consider positions only in their desired location and preferred commuting range. Employers also benefit, as they can be sure they attract applicants who already live in, or are willing to relocate to, their specific areas.

"TMP is dedicated to being at the forefront of the latest trends in technology and to offering the best possible candidate experience. We do this by continually enhancing TalentBrew to provide our clients with tools and improvements that connect them to a higher level of talent across the web," said Matt Lamphear, senior vice president of Interactive Products at TMP Worldwide. "Location information is not what is next -- it is now. Employers can improve talent acquisition strategies by leveraging location-based and location-aware tools more often, and this enhancement is a major step."

The latest version of TalentBrew is available now. More information about TalentBrew can be accessed at http://www.talentbrew.tmp.com
