CORAL SPRINGS, FL (September 25, 2008) – Hirebridge LLC, a leader in application tracking solutions software, has announced the integration of numerous functions that help its customers leverage their use of the nation’s largest online job site, Careerbuilder.

Customers now can post job openings directly from their Hirebridge platform to the CareerBuilder site using CareerBuilder’s DirectPost application submission service. They also can search CareerBuilder’s massive, premium Candidate Resume Database without first leaving the Hirebridge portal. Together, these new features streamline the candidate acquisition process.  Hirebridge and Careerbuilder are also pleased to offer an integrated application for candidates to speed the application process and ensure candidate source tracking.

“This is about improving efficiency and increasing productivity by reducing time spent on repetitive tasks,” said Jeff Kasten, Hirebridge Executive Vice President and Director of Business Development. “This relationship taps the inherent power of both partners. CareerBuilder reaches thousands of career-savvy companies and candidates, and we have the technology to help search firms and companies find candidates faster. Simply put, we make it seamless to interact with CareerBuilder.”

Hirebridge’s ability to interface with CareerBuilder is ideal for human resources professionals who subscribe to CareerBuilder’s candidate database for several reasons. First, those looking to fill positions can post jobs to CareerBuilder directly from within Hirebridge – and have them live on CareerBuilder in about 10 minutes. Second, candidates applying to jobs using CareerBuilder’s “Shared Apply” application can use  data already submitted to the CareerBuilder system, eliminating the need to re-enter personal content or credentials.
