We’re delighted to see that SilkRoad, a leading provider of HRIS solutions, has released an objective source-of-hire study, showing the top online sources of hire for over 700 employers during 2011. It’s the first time we’ve ever seen a study like this: based on a large sample of US employers that use automated candidate source tracking.
Naturally, we are also thrilled to see that Indeed is the #1 source of external hires, with 72% more hires than the next biggest source. We reproduced SilkRoad’s chart here:

We have been dismayed that for years the only source-of-hire studies were based on inaccurate survey data. SilkRoad’s study is a breath of fresh air in an industry that often lacks analytical rigor.
We look forward to seeing what else SilkRoad finds in its data and hope it inspires other Applicant Tracking System providers to conduct similar studies.
We’re pleased to announce the opening of Indeed’s EMEA headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.
The Dublin office is an integral part of our international growth strategy, bringing Indeed’s sales and client services teams closer to our growing client base in the region.
More than 60 million job seekers come to Indeed each month from around the world and the new office will allow us to continue offering the best job search experience possible to EMEA job seekers.
Indeed co-founder Rony Kahan met with Ireland’s Minister of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation, Richard Bruton, in January to discuss the office opening and our plans to hire 50 new employees in Dublin this year.
The new jobs at our EMEA headquarters are in sales, client services, business development, finance and operations. For information about Indeed’s job openings in Dublin, go to http://indeed.jobs.
