New Grad Filter to Provide Relevant Jobs to Recent Graduates
Mountain View, CA – April 6, 2010 – Simply Hired, the largest job search engine and recruitment advertising network, today announced the launch of its newest specialty filter for “New Graduate” jobs. This filter is designed to serve the thousands of expected college graduates entering today’s competitive workforce.
SimplyHired.com announces the New Graduate job filter just in time for students to begin their job search before graduation. This filter will allow job seekers, specifically recent graduates with limited to no work experience, to view jobs nationwide relevant to their experience level. It will offer recent grads an easy way to filter through the three million job listings on SimplyHired.com to find positions that are relevant to their majors and fit their skills.
“According to a SimplyHired.com poll, 78 percent of job seekers graduate without a job at the time of commencement, so we’re proud to aid new graduates in their job search with a relevant tool,” said Andrew Chen, Sr. Product Manager, Simply Hired. “Entry level jobs are out there; new graduates just need help finding them.”
Along with the New Graduate filter, Simply Hired also offers a “Share” feature which enables job seekers to share jobs through LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and email. By socializing job search, users can easily and quickly network and share jobs with their community, as well as receive referrals and find unknown connections.
The New Graduate filter further strengthens Simply Hired’s mission to personalize job search by giving recent graduate job seekers a comprehensive view of all the jobs available in an easy and efficient manner.
