Major Rollout of Job Postings and Search

Although we do a new build almost every week, today we have rolled out major new functionality.

We believe heartily in the process of “finding the company first and then the job”. But it is swimming upstream against an industry that is built around the job posting.

Candidates look for jobs and Companies want to post jobs. So instead of fighting against this fact, we have released job posting capability.

Now companies can register with Genotrope and manage their company record, post news as well as create and edit job postings.

The difference is that now when Candidates are viewing the list of job posting the Genotrope Icon logomarkwill be present in the job listing to indicate companies where the candidate also has an affinity match through their professional graph. These jobs will be the better fit matches when compared to matches done strictly by position or industry.

Along with the new job postings, we have added major new search functionality.  Both Browsing greeniconbuttonbrowse2and MyGraph greeniconbuttonmygraph2 mode on the FindJobs page can be searched by zipcode proximity, Industry and Company Status. This means you can slice and dice the company database to find very specific matches, such as all B2B companies with a series A investment that are 25 miles from my home town.

One last thing, registered users will notice the new home page not only displays All Recent Job Postings, it also shows the New Jobs from Companies in your Graph.

These changes reflect the fact that the job market is picking up and Genotrope’s increased focus on helping People and Companies connect.

Thanks to Ganesh and his team for a release well done.
