Startwire is an interesting new company that has the goal of helping great people find great companies. This free service will allow partners to place job listings and target applicants based on specific profiles.
These targeted profiles can include things like: Previous job functions, last place worked, title, and education. Applicants can then be sourced based on this custom profile. Partners who use the service will be able to can approach qualified applicants with their opportunity.
There are no charges for setting up or using these custom profiles. Similar to the two stage opt-in advertising on Facebook advertising partners will not be charged unless someone who matches your custom profile says they are interested.
As this service matures they plan to add better feedback and convenience features to job seekers through functions like automatic updates. This innovative approach to connecting great companies to great people definitely looks like something to watch!
