Louisiana-Based Non-Profit's Innovative Job Assistance Program Expands To More Than 200 Faith-Based Charities

MATAWAN, N.J., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It was an innovative idea that took shape just two years ago, a faith-based non-profit utilizing iCIMS' Recruitâ„¢ Applicant Tracking System (ATS) as a job placement database, allowing the state's unemployed to have access to a listing of available jobs through local ministries in the area. Now, iCIMS is proud to report its customer, Faith Employee's Employment Data (FEED), is expanding its program.

"The response has been amazing. Our church participation has grown by leaps and bounds, from just 13 churches when we first started to nearly 250," said FEED CEO, Bill Stanton. "The iCIMS Talent Platform has helped us provide a strong and robust job placement database to churches and businesses throughout Southern Louisiana. Local businesses love the idea. By the end of 2013, we expect to have a total of 480 businesses in our network! Our goal is to cover most of Louisiana by summer and possibly expand to other states."

FEED worked with iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, to create a uniquely configured Talent Platform that acts as a job placement database. The database connects the unemployed and underemployed of FEED affiliated faith-based organizations with participating businesses that post job openings.

"Thanks to the success of the program and the number of new churches signing on, we predict job fulfillment will increase by more than 400% this year," said Stanton.

Each participating employer organization is given system access to post job openings as well as filter through the pool of candidates who have applied for positions. In turn, the unemployed and underemployed can search and apply for jobs by submitting resumes, employment applications, and cover letters through an online career portal.
