STAMFORD, Conn. – March 28, 2005 – Indeed announced today the launch of Indeed.com, a search engine for jobs with a radically new approach. In one simple search, Indeed gives job seekers free access to millions of employment opportunities from hundreds of Web sites. In beta since November 2004, Indeed.com now includes all the job listings from over 500 Web sites – major job boards, the top 200 newspapers, hundreds of associations and company career pages.
“Indeed is the most comprehensive search engine for career positions and incredibly simple to use,” said Randy Stevens, President of R.L. Stevens & Associates, the nation’s leading firm specializing in executive career searches. “Indeed makes job searching more efficient, freeing up our clients’ time for other aspects of their career search. We are recommending Indeed to each and every one of our clients.”
In contrast to job boards that only display jobs from their clients, Indeed is putting job seekers first by allowing them to search jobs from hundreds of Web sites simultaneously. With 100,000 new jobs every day, Indeed has more fresh jobs than any other Web site, including every conceivable type of job, from skilled to unskilled, full-time to part-time and every level of pay.
“We’ve already received fantastic feedback from job seekers who are finding jobs they otherwise would not have found,” said Paul Forster, CEO of Indeed. “Indeed’s proprietary search technology was designed with the benefit of years of tracking job seekers’ online behavior. Our search algorithms ensure that job seekers are returned the freshest, most relevant jobs from any search.”
With the familiar look and feel of general search engines, Indeed makes it easy for job seekers to drill down by keyword and location to jobs that fit their requirements precisely. Advanced search options are also available, such as searching on a particular company name, a particular job title, or specifying a maximum commuting distance. Job searches can be saved as email alerts or RSS feeds, enabling users to track their searches continuously.
