    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- ICplanet, (www.icplanet.com)
 an e-recruiting internet exchange connecting businesses with professional
 independent consultants, has achieved staggering growth of 1150 percent in
 resume acquisition in only two months. ICplanet also logged an impressive
 763,000 unique visitors to the site during the month of September making
 ICplanet the world's #1 website for finding independent consultants according
 to PC Data Online. During that period, ICplanet increased its user base by
 118 percent, the biggest increase in one month ever recorded by the company.
     The San Rafael-based company launched the industry's most successful and
 noticed marketing campaign during the month of September. Consisting of radio
 commercials in four markets-San Francisco, Boston, Washington D.C. and
 Seattle, coupled with national online marketing, the campaign more than
 doubled the ICplanet user base -- while dramatically improving both the data
 quality of its candidates and search productivity of its end users.
     This ranking is not simply a result of clever marketing.  ICplanet relies
 on the ease by which independent consultants (ICs) can post resumes on the
 site.  Users simply cut and paste resumes onto the site, which are
 automatically converted to create a complete profile.  This process results in
 a robust database of high-quality candidates containing more useable
 information for employers to make educated hiring decisions.
     "ICplanet has come to the market with proprietary technology that is
 redefining the online recruiting space," said Jeffrey Walker, CEO of ICplanet.
 "We offer ICs and hiring managers better quality matches, faster than any
 other service.  The results speak for themselves."
