Austin, Texas – (The Hosting News) – July 23, 2007 – Rackspace Managed Hosting, will utilize the itzbig network, which offers technology companies and job candidates a private, interactive sourcing network, to assist in hiring procurement for new employees.
Bryan Powell, Director of Recruiting at Rackspace explained, ”itzbig is different in that it allows us to find high-performing employees who would otherwise not feel comfortable exploring jobs on the Internet. itzbig is attractive to these candidates because it offers privacy, security, and anonymity as well as the ability to see exactly how they match up against the specific job opportunity.”
According to the company, from the candidate’s side, itzbig is different than other available online recruiting services. itzbig’s networked approach gives prospective employees the ability to control their job search in that they determine what input they chose to provide for each respective position. If they’re unsure of what to emphasize in their profile, they can engage in an online dialogue with recruiters and hiring companies, who can provide more detailed feedback on the position.
Jim Hammock, CEO and Co-founder of itzbig remarked, ”More than 85 percent of today’s work force does not feel safe using Internet job sites. itzbig provides a secure environment making it OK for working professionals to look for alternative career opportunities. As a result employers have access to higher quality candidates. Users also benefit from a more accurate matching technology that saves precious time in connecting job seekers and employers. Early users like Rackspace are gaining immediate feedback regarding the availability of qualified candidates within minutes of entering open positions into the network.”
itzbig is a private network designed to allow working professionals to save time while safely exploring career opportunities. By focusing on quality and efficiency, the company’s goal approach is to ”rescue” job seekers and employers from large quantities of poorly matched data.
