NetStart today announced Web-based job recruiting services and software to give human resources personnel the ability to manage all aspects of their recruiting efforts.

NetStart offers TeamBuilder application software and CareerBuilder, a career search Web site for job seekers where TeamBuilder companies can post job openings.

NetStart is targeting a growth market. Research firm International Data Corporation predicts that 96 percent of companies will be recruiting on the Web by the year 2001.

The CareerBuilder site lists jobs primarily in northern Virginia, but the company just opened a San Francisco office to add Northern California listings and expects to expand nationwide. CareerBuilder incorporates agent technology so that job seekers can enter their preferences and be notified by email of new openings that meet their criteria.

The TeamBuilder workflow software uses templates and wizards so that recruiters can create Web pages with job openings and corporate information, manage responses received on the Net, route resumes, and organize the entire recruitment process. TeamBuilder version 2.0 is due to ship in early 1997.

TeamBuilder was designed to model actual recruiting workflow processes, including posting job openings, receiving, reviewing, and routing resumes online, searching for resumes, replying to candidates by email and measuring results of recruiting programs. TeamBuilder allows companies to post and update job openings easily and dynamically.

TeamBuilder is a multiuser, client-server application. The TeamBuilder server resides on a Pentium PC running Microsoft Windows NT.

TeamBuilder software is available immediately for $4,500 to $6,000, depending on configuration. CareerBuilder subscriptions for TeamBuilder customers vary based on the number of jobs posted. Employers can post up to 25 jobs per month for $2,000.
