ATLANTA, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Employrium redefines job search by plugging into the largest source of jobs -- the hidden job market. According to Employrium, the hidden job market is responsible for over 60 percent of job openings that convert to new hires. Coupled with the recognized trend toward social networking, getting hired is akin to climbing mountains. With Employrium's Job Search Tweets, now savvy job seekers have the advantage, i.e. ability, to connect with recruiters and other job seekers -- in real time. Now Employrium's Job Search Tweets App supports advanced local job search features linked to Google Maps. Employrium's Job Search Tweets App is available in the Android Market.

Clearly, the evolution of social networking represents a shake up in legacy job search. "While the hidden job market itself is nothing new, the expansive nature of participants via Job Search Tweets is definitely ground breaking," says Employrium Founder Darryl Carter. With job search real time, Job Seeker Blog, and Job Search Tweets for Android, job seekers spend less time searching. For job seekers that means landing the next job faster. Moreover, from a recruiting and placement perspective, less time searching means shorter cycle times and higher margins.
