NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --, the leading recruitment solution for professional talent ($100K+), announced today that the company has enhanced the search functionality for users of "Passport," a free recruitment solution that allows employers and recruiters to post job advertisements and connect with a pre-screened pipeline of professional level candidates. Passport recruiters can now proactively search for and invite the right candidates to follow them on Pipeline™, a social recruitment platform that allows recruiters to manage and communicate quickly with their own network of qualified job seekers.

Passport is a solution that helps put recruiters in touch with quality candidates, as well as provides a powerful suite of recruiting and social media tools that make attracting the right applicants easy. This update will allow recruiters to proactively seek out qualified job candidates more quickly through a seamless process. In addition to this extended functionality of Passport, which allows limited keyword and radius search for free, TheLadders will continue to provide a number of recruitment solutions and paid services for employers and recruiters.

TheLadders Passport allows recruiters to:

  • Post their $100K+ jobs and get the attention of over 4 million professional-level candidates
  • Cultivate their own network with Pipeline, TheLadders' social recruitment tool, and attract top applicants
  • Manage, store, sort and access applicants on TheLadders from a single location to save time

The new feature is automatically available to Passport subscribers and allows recruiters to more easily access information on candidates who appear to fit the positions they are looking to fill. Now recruiters can more easily determine which candidates are the best fit for the jobs they post, and can invite those job seekers to follow them through Pipeline, creating a real-time communication platform to share updates on available jobs.

"By expanding this innovative channel, we are providing recruiters with tools to better connect with the right job candidates. These added features will enable recruiters to better identify applicants that fit their needs, as well as create a platform for recruiters to invite qualified candidates into their networks," says Alex Douzet, co-founder and president of TheLadders. "This is an opportunity for recruiters, employers and jobseekers to broaden their connections. We believe so strongly in our services and products, we are inviting recruiters and employers to try Passport for free."

Recently, TheLadders announced that its services will be expanded to include all professional careers beginning September 20th. The new search capabilities of Passport will allow a much wider range of recruiters and job seekers to benefit from the expertise and offerings of TheLadders.
