#SocialRecruiting news: MyParichay and Shine.com tie up to launch social job board

In the boldest step yet, Shine.com the job portal of HT Media, has tied up with social recruiting app MyParichay to launch a solution called "Social Bar"

Using their online network of Facebook contacts, job seekers on Shine.com can now get their foot in the door or an interview with a potential employer and expand their professional network on Facebook. One of the main benefits of the MyParichay Social Bar™ is that Shine.com users are able to see which of their Facebook friends and friends of friends work in the company that posted the open job on Shine.com. Once they have this information they can forward their resume to these connections and increase their chances of getting an interview.

 Shine.com has been a follower in the job board market in India to Naukri, Monster and even TimesJobs. So it's interesting to see them trying out something innovative like social recruiting to break away from traditional job boards.
