“Big Data” Program Big Hit with Customers
San Ramon, CA — June 26, 2012 — eQuest today announced that its “Big Data” program is collecting One Million job board data records per day. eQuest consultants utilize this highly prized data to develop more effective recruitment strategies, reduce spending, and target candidates faster for their customers. The program provides companies a clearer understanding of candidate viewing and response habits.
In March of this year eQuest announced that it had surpassed One Billion total records in its database.
“Our consulting division is being utilized more and more based on the sheer breadth of our collected analytics,” said Harold Levy, Senior Vice President at eQuest Interactive Media Group. “Many customers are beginning to preset and automate job posting deliveries based on strategies learned from our metrics. In many cases it literally eliminates the need for recruiters to select job boards for job delivery. It’s certainly a departure from what eQuest and its customers have been doing for many years.”
eQuest targets various demographics, then assembles statistical models providing a rendering of where candidates view and respond to jobs — by job board, by job classification, job title, location, and skills — by day and hour – worldwide. In its TRAQ24 application, customers can download data directly into their Applicant Tracking System to provide a full spectrum of candidate behavior – from initial view to the eventual hire.
eQuest is the global leader in job-posting delivery and job board management services, including candidate sourcing metrics and job board evaluations, job board consultation and planning, job board negotiating, and billing control. Thousands of job boards are supported in the eQuest network reaching over 180 countries and territories worldwide. eQuest is one of the most recognized and admired brands in the human resource industry. eQuest can be reached at www.equest.com.
