Path.To, the "eHarmony for Jobs," Supports Growing Demand for Tech Talent by Expanding Job Service to New York, Boston and ChicagoNew Features Help Businesses Find the Best Tech Employees and Create Online Visual Social Portfolios for Candidates (June 19, 2012)
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/19/12 -- In response to the growing demand for tech talent in the country's top markets, Path.To has announced that its online job service is now available in New York, Chicago and Boston.
Path.To now features jobs from more than 200 companies in the major technology markets including Vimeo, Gilt, OkCupid, The Onion, GiveForward, Leaf, ByteLight and Gemvara.
An "eHarmony for jobs," Path.To helps determine compatibility among businesses and interactive design, software engineering and IT professionals. Distinct from traditional job services, Path.To is focused on IT professions and features the "Path.To Score," a ranking system that analyzes the unique characteristics of each applicant, business and position to determine compatibility.
In addition to launching in New York, Chicago and Boston, Path.To also made available these new features:
- Visual Social Portfolio: For professionals, Path.To now offers a visual portfolio showcasing their contributions and engagement on communities like Behance, Dribbble, Forrst and Github. The portfolio is included on their public profile pages as well as their job applications.
- Candidate Recommendations: Within minutes of posting a job, Path.To will provide businesses with a recommendation of the top candidates, based on compatibility, for the available position. To streamline the recruiting process, companies can reach out to these candidates proactively rather than waiting for them to apply for the position. For the 30 days the post is live, the company will receive weekly notifications of new Path.To users who rank highly for the position.
- Company Profiles: Businesses can now create a gorgeous public business profile page to visually display company culture through videos, photos and social content (like Twitter, Facebook "likes," blog posts, etc.), as well as feature all currently open job positions. Additionally, current employees can post testimonials about the professional and social environment to provide further insight for candidates.
"Our expansion into New York, Chicago and Boston is driven by the high demand of designers and software engineers in these markets," said Darren Bounds, Founder of Path.To. "The early adoption we've seen and feedback from users over the last few months have been very positive. It's shown a real need for a way to offer deeper insight and understanding of candidates, companies and positions early on in the recruiting process. By focusing on compatibility, Path.To is offering a more comprehensive view of opportunities which will lead to smarter, more targeted recruiting."
Path.To is armed with a deeper understanding of potential candidates by taking into account their social graph (engagement on Twitter, Facebook, Behance, Dribbble, Forrst and Github), personality (incorporates information about what is important to each user in their next position) and their skills and experience. The "Path.To Score" then ranks compatibility based on each applicant, business and position posted.
In the past few months, Path.To has experienced rapid user adoption and currently boasts a roster of more than 200 businesses and more than 10,000 interactive design, software engineering and IT professionals as members. Path.To is free for consumers and businesses and will continue its expansion into other major markets in the coming months.
Path.To connects the right people with the right job opportunities through personalized recommendations that deliver the best and most compatible matches for talent and businesses. Through a deeper and more meaningful understanding of each applicant and business, Path.To surfaces only the most relevant job opportunities -- making the job search more effective and targeted, and saving everyone time.
