New data from iCIMS, a leading talent acquisition software and Applicant Tracking System (ATS) provider, shows its clients hire more people from Indeed than from all other job sites combined. We’ve re-published their data below.
iCIMS reviewed a full year of data (August 2011 – July 2012) covering 46,800 hires made from external sources by more than 1,200 employers. The companies ranged in size from 10 employees to more than 100,000. “Traditional Job Boards” include CareerBuilder, Monster, and Craigslist. Indeed provided eight times more hires than the leading professional networking site, LinkedIn.
Two ATS providers have now published data that shows Indeed is the #1 external source of hire for nearly 2,000 employers. Earlier this year, SilkRoad published data from its ATS showing Indeed provided its clients with more hires than any other external recruitment source. Both reports provide highly accurate and comprehensive data based on automated source tracking.
Seven years ago we created Indeed to make job search and hiring easier. We’re delighted to see more evidence of how it’s helping people find jobs.
Indeed’s product development team is guided by asking one simple question every day: what is best for the job seeker? At SXSW 2013, Indeed’s VP of Product Chris Hyams and User Experience Lead J Christopher Garcia will share how we use data from 75 million job seekers and 2 billion monthly searches to answer that question.
They’ll show how Indeed uses A/B testing to make data-driven decisions for the products and features you see on our site today. The talk will include a detailed case study of how Indeed Company Pages grew from 300 employer reviews per day to over 6,000 reviews per day through a series of carefully designed tests.

About SXSW: SXSW Interactive is the largest gathering of technology enthusiasts in the world. From March 8-12, more than 25,000 people will converge in Austin, Indeed’s backyard, to hear from 2,500+ speakers on all things tech.

|In our previous post, Four simple tips for hiring with Indeed Resume, we showed you fast, easy ways to find your next hire on Indeed Resume.
Indeed Resume is also precise. Whether you want to use the advanced search page or create advanced search queries on the fly, here’s how to find exactly who you’re looking for.
Get specific with search operators
Say you want to hire a Program Manager with a degree from Stanford who has worked at Cisco. Using search operators, you can quickly find the right candidates.
Let’s start with the title: operator. Type title:”Program Manager” into the “What” box. This returns people with the current job title of Program Manager. If you want people who have been a Program Manager at any point in their careers, use anytitle:”Program Manager” instead. Note that search terms with more than one word must be enclosed in quotes, like “Program Manager”.
Then, use the anycompany: operator to find people who have ever worked at Cisco. Add anycompany:Cisco to the search. Just like title:, using company:Cisco instead will return only people who currently work at Cisco.
Finally, let’s filter to only those people who went to Stanford. Add school:Stanford.
Leaving us with the complete query: title:”Program Manager” anycompany:Cisco school:Stanford. Exactly who you were looking for.
You can also use these operators from the advanced search page.
Use Boolean operators to refine your search
But what if you are looking for someone who has been a Program Manager or a Product Manager? With Boolean operators, in particular the OR operator, you can find these resumes in one search. Try it: anytitle:(“Program Manager” OR “Product Manager”).
Or maybe you want someone who has worked as both a Program Manager and a Product Manager? In that case, use the AND operator: anytitle:(“Program Manager” AND “Product Manager”).
And if you want a Program Manager who isn’t currently working as a Product Manager? Add a minus sign before any operator to exclude the matching resumes from your results: -title:”Product Manager” anytitle:”Program Manager”.
Again, these same searches can be done from the advanced search page.
