Gurgaon: Shine, the job portal from the house of HT Media, has just announced the revamp of its entire website, offering significantly enhanced product features, aiming for a better end user experience for both recruiters and candidates. The re-launch has been timed to coincide with its 3 year anniversary, with Shine.com hitting the landmark of over 70 lakh candidates in its database, and also with the relaunch of its Tuesday job supplement with Hindustan Times, ShineJobs.
Amit Garg, Business Head – Internet, HT Media, said, “Shine.com continues to be one of our most important internet ventures as a group. In the last 3 years, we’ve made significant progress and have successfully got on board many candidates and recruiters – we’re now at well over 70 lakh candidates and more than 40,000 jobs. However, from this year on, starting with this product revamp, we are expecting Shine to take off on a completely different growth trajectory, because it significantly enhances our core differentiator of better relevance of results, delivered through our unique Matching technology. This is what helps candidates find the jobs they deserve, and helps recruiters hire faster. Another strategic advantage that sets us apart is the large print reach that we have through ShineJobs, the Tuesday Job Supplement with Hindustan Times, which has now been strengthened in terms of more job and great content- this makes us the only Recruitment player with an integrated online and print offering’.
Shine uses a unique 2-Way Matching Engine to provide candidates with the most relevant jobs, based on their profiles as well as preferences. Apart from better job matches, Shine also provides candidates with career-related information and industry updates. The new revamped website significantly enhances the matching algorithm and therefore showcases even better results to candidates, and also provides a smooth experience when it comes to navigation through the site, updating profiles, and many other features.
With this re-launch, Shine is enhancing its portfolio of recruiter offerings, with a set of unique solutions not available with other job portals. Garg said ‘We have an all-new portfolio of simple but powerful solutions, including SmartMatch – which uses our 2-Way Matching to give recruiters the most relevant and interested candidates, ensuring they hire faster. It’s not just a regular job posting or database access, which are standard solutions, but something far more powerful and time saving’.
With this product revamp, which has been achieved with in-house product and technology capabilities, Shine aims to become the recruitment solution of choice in the Indian market, and promises to help career-conscious job-seekers in their quest to move up their career path.
