Recruiters, Corporate Hiring Managers and 5 Million Unique Visitors a Month Rely on ZoomInfo to Find Information on People and Companies
May 20, 2009 – Waltham, Mass. – With unemployment reaching an all time high, ZoomInfo™, the most comprehensive source of business information on people and companies, today announced new opportunities for job seekers to claim their profile (http://www.zoominfo.com/jobseekers), market themselves and be found by hiring managers, recruiters, and industry influencers.
"There are 4 million HR managers and 174,932 professional recruiters in America today. The 1st place these recruiters will go to find a potential candidate is ZoomInfo.com. If you're not there you can't be found - in fact you don't exist," said David Perry, author of the new book, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 and the blog Guerilla Job Hunting. "In addition to just being found, ZoomInfo allows job seekers to stand out in a crowded job market and gain control over their online presence."
ZoomInfo uses patented technology to scan millions of corporate websites, press releases, electronic news services, blogs, SEC filings and other public online sources every day. From these sources, ZoomInfo automatically builds a person's ZoomInfo profile. These deep and informative profiles provide detail on 20 different characteristics including: employment history, geography, industry, education, credentials, photos, user-posted biography (when available) and Web references. Today ZoomInfo maintains profiles on over 45 million people at 5 million companies that are searched regularly by the general public, recruiters, the media and others.
