Monster ®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW) and Kforce Inc. (NASDAQ:KFRC), today announced they have entered into a multi-year agreement to deploy Monster’s industry leading Power Resume Search ®, using 6Sense Semantic Search technology, across Kforce's entire organization. Expanding their existing Monster contract, Kforce, a professional staffing and solutions firm providing flexible and permanent staffing solutions in the skill areas of technology, finance & accounting and health information management, will be providing to its entire recruiter base access to 6Sense semantic search for all of its sourcing needs on Monster.com. Kforce joins a growing number of companies turning to Monster’s 6Sense semantic search, powering products like Power Resume Search, helping recruiters make precise talent matches that traditional search engines cannot uncover. “We are excited to fully integrate Power Resume Search and 6Sense across our entire organization. We believe that the precision offered by Monster’s 6Sense Semantic Search, coupled with Kforce’s National Recruiting Center (NRC) strategy and proprietary technologies, will provide an additional advantage for Kforce in the identification of great talent for our clients,” said Randy Marmon, Kforce’s Chief Customer Development Officer. Marmon added, “PRS & 6Sense should provide a great platform for additional partnering initiatives between our organizations.” Monster’s Power Resume Search, fueled by 6Sense semantic search technology, enables employers to find the best candidates quicker by analyzing resumes as a hiring manager would, by reading resumes and evaluating skills, while understanding the depths of an individual’s experience in seconds instead of hours. Semantic search technology goes far beyond traditional keyword search, saving time and increasing productivity, allowing recruiters to see resumes in less time with unprecedented hiring efficiency by providing faster access to better qualified candidates. In side-by-side comparisons with competitive sites using standard keyword search technology, 97 percent of recruiters reported they found qualified candidates faster when using Monster’s 6Sense search technology.
“Monster is proud to partner with Kforce in its deployment of our 6Sense technology and is confident that PRS will become the ‘must-have’ solution for staffing firms in an increasingly competitive environment,” added Matthew O’Connor, Senior Vice President, Staffing and Software Solutions for Monster.For more information on Monster’s 6Sense semantic search technology and full suite of Monster technology solutions, visit http://findbetter.monster.com/.
