NGA.NET U.S. Public Sector Integrates Social Media Capabilities into eRecruit Platform to Streamline Job Posting and Application Processes

eRecruit SocialSmashed and Social Apply Leverage Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, Increasing Government Agencies Recruitment Footprint and Applicant Efficiencies

Arlington, VA – April 10, 2013 – NGA.NET U.S. Public Sector, delivering talent acquisition and management solutions to optimize workforce performance, today announced SocialSmashed and Social Apply, two new social media integration capabilities for its talent acquisition solution, eRecruit. With eRecruit SocialSmashed, U.S. federal agencies can easily post job listings on social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and generate in-depth analytics that report the effectiveness of government social recruiting initiatives. Through eRecruit Social Apply, candidates can submit an application to federal job postings by leveraging their LinkedIn profile.

“At its core, successful recruiting in the U.S. federal market relies not just on finding the best talent, but also providing a positive application experience,” stated Tim Enright, vice president of sales for NGA.NET U.S. Public Sector. “The methods today’s job seekers use to look for and apply to jobs are evolving and government agencies are looking for solutions that cater to the nuances of a broader talent pool. NGA.NET’s solutions allow federal organizations to cast the widest next possible to identify and attract elite talent, by the most efficient means possible.”

eRecruit SocialSmashed

eRecruit SocialSmashed enables federal agencies to quickly and easily post job listings on their established social media platforms, ensuring that jobs are posted online faster and to a larger audience, so that the recruitment process is more efficient.  With Facebook, jobs are posted to a branded job tab on an agency’s page that displays jobs and allows candidates to apply, share, recommend or like available positions. For Twitter, the available position is converted into a tweet with an associated hashtag to make it easily searchable. With LinkedIn, recruiters at federal agencies can automatically synch job opportunities to their own status updates, ensuring that opportunities are shared to the recruiter’s network of followers.

eRecruit Social Apply

Designed to compliment SocialSmashed, eRecruit Social Apply allows agencies to add an “Apply with LinkedIn” feature into job postings, speeding up the candidate application process. With eRecruit Social Apply, candidates’ relevant information is pre-populated from their LinkedIn profiles into the online job applications, saving time and reducing “double-handling” errors. In addition, candidates will be prompted to complete any missing data on the employment application that is not available in their LinkedIn profile, so that relevant information is not unintentionally missed.
