ResumePal as the Universal Job Application Standard
    (April 1, 2009) Human Resource Technology Leaders Introduce ResumePal as the Universal Job Application Standard

    Job seekers will be able to use ResumePal to apply for jobs at thousands of companies nationwide.

    A group of leading talent acquisition and human resource technology companies are introducing ResumePal as the recruiting industry's first - and only - universally accepted online employment profile. ResumePal revolutionizes the way job seekers and employers connect on the Internet.

    With ResumePal (, job seekers complete online profiles - one time - to apply to jobs at thousands of companies accepting the standard. ResumePal replaces the time consuming online forms process found on most major employer career sites and delivers better and more accurate candidate information to hiring companies.

    By using ResumePal to apply to a company, candidates are instantly routed to the jobs that best fit their profile - now and for future job openings at that company. No more guessing about whether a job is the right fit. No more exhaustive forms. No more job applications falling into black holes.

    "An unavoidable characteristic of today's highly mobile and social environment is the challenge of keeping information about ourselves up-to-date," said Lisa Rowan, Program Director, HR, Learning and Talent Strategies at IDC. "By making job applications dramatically simpler for job seekers and ensuring that the resume seen is the most current, Jobfox is easing this burden. ResumePal has the potential to quickly become a standard for both job seekers and employers."

    The companies behind ResumePal are the technology leaders in recruiting and the entire human resource management community. They include Jobfox, the Internet's first career site to bring precision matching to online recruiting; and the leading providers of applicant tracking solutions, including: ADP (ADP VirtualEdge Recruitment Services), Kenexa (Kenexa Recruiter® BrassRing), Oracle (Oracle® iRecruitment and Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise Talent Acquisition Management), SilkRoad Technology (OpenHire), and Softscape (Softscape Hiring Management).

    For employers, ResumePal benefits include:
    • Smarter matching. ResumePal routes the job seeker to all the jobs at the company that precisely match their skills and attributes.

    • Dramatically reduced job seeker abandonment. Before ResumePal, job seekers routinely abandoned corporate career sites requiring them to fill out exhaustive online job application forms. With ResumePal, job seekers can bypass those forms with one mouse click.

    • More comprehensive job seeker information. A job seeker's ResumePal contains a professional's detailed work history, plus a thorough inventory of skills, certifications, work samples, career goals and work-style assessments – all accessible by the employer.

    • Dynamic updates to job seeker information - any updates made to a candidate's ResumePal are automatically propagated everywhere that candidate has applied using ResumePal. Updates include changes to contact details, continued education, additional skills and the latest employment history.

    • Reduced advertising spend. By efficiently routing job seekers to their best job matches, employers are able to maximize their recruiting budgets.

    • Greater return on applicant tracking technology investments. ResumePal enables employers to gain even higher returns on their investments in applicant tracking solutions.

    • Faster results. Comprehensive candidate matching is brought straight to the employer's applicant tracking solution, providing match results for both employers and job candidates - instantly and continuously.

    Thousands of top employers will automatically benefit from ResumePal through their ResumePal-supported applicant tracking solutions at no additional cost. Other employers should visit ResumePal ( to learn how they too can begin accepting ResumePal on their careers websites.

    "The ResumePal concept is nothing short of revolutionary," said Ralph Doran, Talent Acquisition Manager at Black & Decker. "The talent management challenges that ResumePal is designed to address are very real, undoubtedly impacting the bottom line of every major corporation in America. We wholeheartedly support the movement toward this new standard in taking online recruiting to an entirely new level of efficiency and effectiveness."

    Job candidates can create their portable career profiles by going directly to ResumePal, a free service at, or by visiting any employer site accepting ResumePal.
