Press release from: Hound

/ PR Agency: hound
March 7, 2012 - Pasadena, CA - Even though job numbers have been on the rise in recent months, people are still hurting and unemployment is still a real problem. In fact, Ben Bernake, the Federal Reserve Chairman, recently noted that the unemployment rate wouldn't continue to drop unless new jobs were created and more companies hired employees. While many companies are afraid of taking the risk, others just can't find quality prospects.

Hound.com seeks to solve the latter problem by putting employers in direct contact with potential employees. The site is subscription based and requires that job seekers pay a fee to gain access to jobs that are listed directly on employer's websites. These are positions that aren't widely publicized and often receive far too few applications, leaving employers grasping at straws when it comes time to hire someone.

By widening the potential employee pool, Hound.com allows employers to ensure they're getting the best quality applicants possible. Regardless of how the economy is doing, Hound.com ensures employees have access to the best job listings so that, in turn, employers have the best pool of applicants to choose from. It's simple, really.

Currently, Hound.com has 1,187,996 jobs from employer sites posted directly on their site organized by industry and location. The company's thinking is that applying for jobs is hard enough without having to scour for job listings. And in an economy like this, having access to every open position is necessary to find employment.

Hound.com launched in 1995 and was purchased by the Employment Research Institute in 2005, which was founded by Harrison Barnes. Based in Pasadena, CA, the site was named one of the top 20 job sites by PC Magazine in 2009.
Hound has been named one of the Top 20 Best Job Sites by PC Magazine, the #1 Job website by Applicant.com and+ among the 10 Best Online Job Search Sites by geeksugar. Hound is a company owned by Employment Research Institute, one of the world's largest conglomerates of job search-related companies.
