JobsMiner, the pioneer of social job search engine across all social media platforms, announced today the launch of JobsMiner.com, the first search engine enabling users to find hidden job postings on all social media outlets including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google Plus, blogs, and forums. JobsMiner.com gives job seekers access to all job opportunities that appear on social networking platforms, in one place, without the need to be part of a specific social community. In the last month alone, JobsMiner’s listings grew by 700,000 US job postings.
According to a recent industry survey, one in six employees used social media to find their current job and about 54 percent of all job seekers use Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to find jobs. However, many job offers listed on social networks are informal listings and hidden from users that are not connected with the poster. JobsMiner unlocks the closed circle of friends and expands it by finding all job postings on the social media sites, even wall postings on Facebook (posted ‘public’) or blog and forum posts. This allows job seekers easy access to many more hidden postings they would normally not find in their regular social media job search. Many of JobsMiner’s listings are found before the position is even posted on a company website or job board.
“We are extremely excited to be launching our one-of-a-kind job search tool,” said Ran Enoch, co-founder of JobsMiner. “With our extensive background and experience in providing real-time social media information analysis services and the fact that over 20 million people used online social networks to find their job in 2011, we recognized the need to unlock the wealth of hidden jobs across all online social media. JobsMiner aggregates the unstructured job postings and organizes them into a structured list search engine style interface which makes the job search faster and more effective. The system's algorithm continuously teaches itself and improves in order to ensure the validity and accuracy of the job openings it presents.”
The JobsMiner development team led by CTO Shlomi Noach, a renowned MySQL expert who recently received Oracle’s “Technologist of The Year 2011” award, developed the monitoring and analysis solution that provides JobsMiner with its ability to continuously monitor and expose the latest job openings on all relevant sites ahead of any other job board. JobsMiner’s search capabilities are used to analyze unstructured text posts and, using the algorithmic technology, present them to the end user as a viable job offering with a link to the original post. This technology was developed based on years of experience with Makam, a leading service provider of online monitoring and research utilizing patent pending contextual technology.

JobsMiner, currently in the Beta phase, was established in 2010 to provide job seekers with a free search tool to find jobs using the social media networks they already use on a daily basis. JobMiner’s unique characteristics make it the first, and only, social media search engine for locating job postings. Currently the service is only available for jobs located in the United States. Based on its multi-lingual capabilities, the service will be extended soon in additional markets.
