Job portal Monster India has launched Magic Search, which will redefine the paradigm of how employers conduct resume searches. The new product combines the simplicity of the best in class search product and the accuracy that is demanded by the recruitment professionals to deliver what is an exciting innovation in e-recruitment.
Vikas Agrawal, Vice-President-Technology, Monster India, explained how the new product was different from the current resume search. He said, “In the current scheme of things, recruiters search by over 15 parameters, which are marked by fields. However, we learned from our research that over 80 per cent of the searches done by recruiters are dictated by keywords.”
He added, “This insight was the genesis of Magic Search, which is nothing but a simple keyword text box where the recruiter can type anything to get the most accurate resume results.”
Magic Search has been entirely developed in-house in India and took just 60 days to define and build. A result of an intense desire to push the product frontiers in e-recruitment, its launch is expected to change the way employers search for resumes.
Monster has been present in India since March 2001. Headquartered in Hyderabad, Monster India launched a complete makeover of the site in February 2006. It was also a platform to introduce cutting edge search technology yielding very accurate search results.
