  • SimplyHired to replace Jobamatic, will add support for multiple sites under single login
    By on July 22, 2014 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Thanks to one of my readers (hat tip Jason Pedley) I was tipped off to new plans by SimplyHired to revamp/replace the venerable Jobamatic software platform. As of September 30th, Jobamatic will go away to be replaced by Simply-Partner. I’m also told by their PR department that they will finally be adding support for managing multiple sites under one account, a feature that has been long sought after by many Jobamatic users. Though the “parent/child” support as they refer to it, wont be available until probably the end of August.

    Existing Jobamatic users must signup under the new platform. Any balances under the old Jobamatic will be paid out. I have some additional questions waiting to be answered so I’ll be posting more on this story but I wanted to get this news out ASAP.

  • My thoughts on the Indeed.com acquisition
    By on September 26, 2012 | No Comments  Comments

    In case you were out of the office yesterday, the online recruiting space got a huge jolt with the acquisition of the biggest job site in the world, Indeed.com. They announced the sale on their blog.

    Terms of the sale weren’t announced but its a safe bet that it was around the billion dollar mark. I’m sure there are a lot of instant millionaires in Stamford and Austin right now. As a former client of Indeed, and one that was there in the beginning, I have watched them grow from a small start-up to the juggernaut they have become.

    This acquisition is clearly about location, location, location. Indeed is strongest in North America. Recruit Co is strong in Asia. It gives both companies a foothold in each other’s markets.

    Indeed is a giant sales machine which is mainly how they got here. They’ve got rows and rows of sales reps in their Stamford office doing nothing but cold calling employers, staffing firms and yes the occasional job board.

    Job boards were their bread and butter in the early years but now they seem to be focusing exclusively on employers. Staffing firms and certain job boards just dont make the cut anymore. They want ‘original’ jobs that seekers cant find anywhere else. And now that Indeed has resumes, its ironic because they’re more like a job board than ever before.

    But this is business and only the strong survive.

    And speaking of survivors what does this mean for the #2 job search engine, SimplyHired? I have long thought that they would be a great pickup for Linkedin since they are both in silicon valley and both are all about the technology. Since there have been several big sales lately (SelectMinds, Kenexa, JobMagic, Indeed) there is definitely an appetite for recruitment technology. I expect to see more activity for the rest of the year.

    Here’s a roundup of the articles about Indeed/Recruit Co;

    If your job board’s feed goes into SimplyHired, they have a cool badge to promote that fact. As I have mentioned several times in the past, you need to leverage the aggregators to your advantage, even if you consider them as a competitor.

    Badges like this help establish trust among employers. Use it or lose it.
