Job Search 2.0 -- Helping Candidates Find Their Dream Job
"Choosing a job is one of the most important decisions people face
repeatedly throughout their lives," said Gautam Godhwani, co-founder and CEO
of Simply Hired. "Our mission is to help people find their dream job in the
simplest, most effective way possible."
SimplyHired.com helps candidates search, sort and select jobs, utilizing
the latest cutting-edge technologies, including an advanced Ajax-based user
interface, proprietary technology for crawling the "Deep Web," and unique
"mashups" with other popular web services.
SEARCH All the Jobs, From All the Sources
With job listings spread across 5,000 job boards, thousands of newspapers
and company websites, candidates typically access only a small percentage of
job listings through a manual job search process. Using deep web crawling
technology, Simply Hired aggregates over 4 million jobs from thousands of
sources into one searchable index. Candidates can visit SimplyHired.com in
lieu of manually searching multiple job sites.
SORT and Track Jobs with Filters, Ratings, Ranked Lists

Users can save jobs as well as rate them using a five-star rating system.
The system then displays all jobs that have been rated or viewed, and a
"Suggestions" feature proactively makes recommendations for jobs matching the

searches can be saved as email alerts or RSS feeds, enabling users to track
their searches continuously and receive fresh jobs as soon as they appear in
SELECT and Apply for Jobs with Research and Referral Tools
With a short list of jobs, Simply Hired helps users evaluate opportunities
around key areas including salary data, company characteristics, and other
attributes utilizing popular mashups such as:
-- "Who Do I Know?" -- Recognizing that half of all hiring is done via
referrals, Simply Hired has worked with LinkedIn to provide a one-click
method for job seekers to discover who they know at any of the hiring
-- "Research Salary" -- With one click, users can see geography-based
salary ranges for job listings and related occupations. Salary data
comes via PayScale.com.
-- "Company Research" -- Adjacent to each company, a comprehensive company
profile is available with company details, financials and description.
-- "Map Jobs" -- Users can select a group of jobs, map them on Google Maps
along with their home address and measure their commute times.
-- "Apply Now" -- Once a candidate has decided that a job is of interest,
an Apply Now feature directly takes them to the application process.
"Simply Hired is committed to addressing each step of the job search
process and will continue to provide more and more integrated solutions to
improve the job search experience," said Godhwani.
