Vet Employment Candidates

Posted on 4.15.2008

Who you hire is an important corporate decision. Choose wisely and reap the many rewards. Choose poorly and start over at square one, hoping no long-term damage was done to your brand or your bottom line. Fetch technologies introduced an interesting technology this week dubbed Fetch Footprint which leverage the deep Web to vet employment candidates.

Using advanced artificial intelligence and deep Web extraction technologies, Fetch Footprint will access candidate data from public local, state and federal information sources and millions of social and professional network posts to make the most informed hiring decisions possible.

“While most employers routinely Google candidates as part of the hiring process, Fetch Footprint goes substantially deeper,” says Jerry Thurber, President of Fetch Footprint, a division of Fetch Technologies’ Employee Data Services Group. “Footprint automates what would take hundreds of man-hours to otherwise discover. For those involved with recruiting, contracting, screening or hiring decisions, the web provides a vast array of information – if you know what to look for. Footprint is designed to intelligently parse data relevant to hiring decisions.”
