Simply Hired : Job Search Sites Review

 

Simplyhired.com is quickly becoming the leading search engine for both job seekers and employers. With over five million jobs and counting, this site pools employment listings from numerous job boards, company websites and on the Internet around the world. In 2005 Simply Hired partnered with LinkedIn to allow users to network and find inside connections at hiring companies. Unlike other job search engines, this company has expanded its networking abilities for both recruiters and job seekers by integrating services with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The effort to make the job searching process more effective has not gone unnoticed. In 2010, Simply Hired was named the “Best Employment Site" by the Annual Webby People’s Voice Awards.
