Simply Hired, a major job search engine of five million plus listings, just announced a new localized destination Web site for China. With more than 500,000 available local job postings at launch,, broadens SimplyHired’s presence in Asia and adds to its repertoire of localized sites in 16 other countries across five continents and in nine languages. AIM Group reported on the company’s profitability and new funding in August, 2009.

Without requiring membership, the new site will provide local job seekers a simple online job search experience in their native language. Simply Hired immediately shows returning users which new listings have been added since their last visit and offers an advanced search option to return job listings that match specific criteria. Job seekers will also learn about personal connections they may have within companies. 


“As we work to provide localized, language-specific job search opportunities for every major country in world, Simply Hired is excited to further expand our job search services in Asia with the launch of our site in China,” said Sachin Shah, director of international, Simply Hired, in the announcement. “Hiring managers are starting to find it difficult to fill open positions in China because the demand for workers rose more than 14 percent in the third quarter from 2008.”

For recruiters and direct employers, Simply Hired offers the ability to add their jobs into these international sites through a job feed. They can also advertise their recruitment brand via premium display ads that appear on relevant search result pages.  

Simply Hired currently supplements LinkedIn’s international job board with millions of job listings from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, India, Germany, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Mexico, Switzerland, China and Brazil.  It also powers jobs on over 5,000 network partner sites such as CNNMoney, BusinessWeek and The Washington Post. It is based in Mountain View, Calif.
