January 21, 2020 – San Ramon, California – Today eQuest announced its annual candidate performance results for its popular BLAST! Network. The network is a group of job boards, career sites, search engines, and other unique sites – rolled into one – where eQuest customers can post jobs. Each posted job is delivered to the entire network to increase job visibility and to increase candidate resume flow.
eQuest is the only company offering this type of service that monitors the effectiveness of each site in the network, adds and replaces as needed, and manipulates each job prior to delivery to increase rankings and viewability. The process is patent pending and does not affect the look of the job.
For a 12 month period over 6.7 million candidates read jobs posted through the Blast! network while approximately 950,000 candidates completed applications. Many customers reported a 300% increase in candidate volume after putting Blast! into production.
Candidates responded in greater percentages to jobs in the following employment functions:
• Retail/ Business Support
• Merchandising / Loss Prevention
• Sales and Sales Related
• Truck Drivers
• Administrative Support
• Customer Service
• Operations and Logistics
• Finance and Banking
• Human Resources
• IT Related / Software Development
• Maintenance / Mechanic
• Life, Physical and Social Science
• Marketing, Media and Advertising
• Bookkeeping, Accounting, and Auditing
• Restaurant / Food Services
• Construction and Related Workers
“Our users have been most successful when utilizing BLAST! as a job board strategy enhancement,” said Jeff Stoia, eQuest’s sales account manager for the mid-west region. “Although some companies use it as a single candidate source more and more companies and staffing agencies use it to cover all possible candidate contact points – added to their existing job boards. At one hire it pays for itself.”
eQuest’s Blast! is available in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
