Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from WetFeet

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- WetFeet,
 a comprehensive recruiting solutions provider, today announced that Bravida
 Corporation, People Solutions, DraftWorldwide, Fallon Advertising, JWT
 Specialized Communications, People Solutions, and The Document Company, Xerox
 have chosen WetFeet Recruiter to streamline their recruitment efforts and
 enable them to more effectively attract, hire and retain the right people.
     WetFeet Recruiter is a comprehensive web-based recruitment management
 system that streamlines the recruiting process to measurably reduce time to
 hire. WetFeet Recruiter consists of four tightly integrated components:
 
     -- Career Website Hosting -- provides a cutting edge recruitment website
 with a look and feel consistent with each client's corporate site. Site design
 allows recruiters to create, edit and remove jobs immediately without the need
 for IT resources.
     -- Candidate Screening -- screens candidates against recruiter generated,
 position specific criteria, pre-qualifies and ranks candidates, and routes
 their resumes to the appropriate recruiters.
     -- Private Talent Database -- creates a database from which candidates can
 be retrieved and matched for current and future positions.
     -- Talent Management System -- expedites the hiring process by allowing
 recruiters and hiring managers to access the most current information on
 candidates and facilitates internal and candidate communication
 
     WetFeet Recruiter also automates the process of posting positions to a
 myriad of job boards and offers reporting tools to measure the effectiveness
 of clients' hiring initiatives as well as report on EEO and affirmative action
 data.
     "WetFeet Recruiter solves a basic problem in today's market:  it helps
 recruiters achieve better results with fewer resources," said Steve Pollock,
 president of WetFeet. "WetFeet Recruiter is based upon our years of
 recruitment consulting and research and is designed to be easy to use and easy
 to implement. In a few hours a company can set up, launch the product and
 transform its recruiting process. Because WetFeet Recruiter is so easy to
 understand and use, it allows recruiters to spend their time building
 relationships with candidates rather than with their systems people."
 
     Bravida Corporation
     Bravida Corporation (www.bravidacorp.com) is a developer of next
 generation data communications infrastructure for the emerging Optical
 Internet. As a rapidly growing technology organization, Bravida's HR team is
 constantly challenged with the urgent need to hire new staff. In order to
 accelerate the company's recruitment efforts, Bravida turned to WetFeet
 Recruiter. Because WetFeet Recruiter is a hosted solution, WetFeet and Bravida
 were able to implement the company's online recruitment site in just a matter
 of days. Having used WetFeet Recruiter for almost three months, Bravida's HR
 department is seeing immediate results, finding themselves much more
 responsive to a growing influx of resumes.
     "Recruiting in the competitive high technology sector requires quick
 turnaround time from initial posting to final hire. WetFeet Recruiter has
 helped us manage our recruiting process in a more intuitive fashion. I can now
 activate a new job requisition in minutes. Before WetFeet Recruiter, it would
 have taken me days to turn around the same requisition," said Francine Mills,
 human resources manager, Bravida.
 
     DraftWorldwide
     As one of the world's premier integrated global marketing agencies,
 DraftWorldwide (www.draftworldwide.com) is known for its creative array of
 marketing solutions and services. DraftWorldwide's recruitment strategy
 centers on building a stronger online presence. The company identified a need
 to drive more job seekers to its website, reduce time to hire and increase
 overall online recruiting effectiveness.  After a thorough review of the many
 recruiting tools and services on the market, it was determined that WetFeet
 Recruiter provided the best technology to help meet the company's goals.
     "Recruiting, like marketing, is all about getting to the heart of your
 target to build lasting relationships and WetFeet understands that. Their
 customer support and response time is impressive. They went out of their way
 to learn the intricacies of my business, so the services we use seem almost
 tailored, from candidate sourcing and management to marketing support and
 research ...  all within my budget," said Eric Bacolas, senior vice president
 and director of human resources for DraftWorldwide New York.
 
     People Solutions
     People Solutions (www.people-solutions.com), one of the Inc. 500's fastest
 growing companies, is a full service provider of human resources management
 consulting and outsourcing services. In preparation for a major recruiting
 project, People Solutions was looking for a robust technology that combined a
 front-end career portal with strong back-end functionality to track,
 prioritize and pre-screen applicants. Flexibility was also a concern because
 People Solutions needed the application for both its internal hiring efforts
 and outsourced hiring efforts for a number of high profile companies.
     "WetFeet's recruitment application was the perfect combination of back-end
 and front-end functionality," said Steve Kakos, People Solutions' manager of
 technology. "WetFeet Recruiter was the only application we found that could
 meet our demands and give us the flexibility we needed."
