Bing & Careerbuilder.com deliver Applicant Explorer

Back at MIX09 in March, we talked about our work with Careerbuilder.com, and today we are pleased to report that at the annual Society for Human Resource Management Conference, Careerbuilder.com announced the availability of Applicant Explorer, a new application built on the Bing API that helps recruiters find qualified candidates in the fraction of the time it once took. Rather than manually sorting through applicant resumes and then searching the web for additional information to fill out a candidate profile, Applicant Explorer uses the Bing API to supplement CareerBuilder’s resume database with online results from public sites including social networking sites, blogs, corporate websites and forums.

 

CareerBuilder selected the Bing API because it enabled the company to help recruiters customize their search criteria and dynamically sift through large amounts of data quickly, providing a more complete picture of an applicant. The end result is great news for recruiters: hundreds of data sources at their fingertips and the ability to do thorough comparisons more quickly and easily. Click here for a video overview of Applicant Explorer or to read the press release here.

 

If you haven’t checked it out yet, we want to make sure you know that the Bing API is free, with unlimited queries, as long as you meet our Terms of Use.

 

We encourage you to use our forums and our newly introduced Bing Toolbox to access tools and resources, and don’t forget to provide your feedback to help us keep improving. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing what you’re doing with Bing!

 

Cheers,

Angus Norton, Senior Director, Bing
