New Talent Exchange Release - February 2010

We will be releasing a Talent Exchange release every month. Our February 2010 release was released on Thursday, March 4th at 10:00 p.m. EST. The release did not require any downtime to employers and job seekers.

The release had the following key enhancements:

• Search Engine Optimization – We worked to increase search optimization for employers that are posting jobs to the Talent Exchange.  Improving our search optimization in search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing) will cause more employers to use our site giving job seekers more exposue to these employers. 

• Job seekers can now import their LinkedIn profile during the Universal Profile creation process.

• Job seeker Dashboard messaging - We will now be able to post out useful messages to our job seekers that will help them with their job search process. 

We spent the majority of this release working with or Smalll to Medium size employers to ensure they are able to utilize the Talent Exchange product directly from their employer career site.   We plan on releasing all of this functionality in our March 2010 release.   Once this is released it will provide our job seekers with even more exposure to employers.
