Recruiting Software Firm Gets on GSA Schedule

Personic Inc., a Brisbane, Calif., provider of recruiting software and services, today announced it has been placed on the General Services Administration schedule. Getting on the schedule makes Personic a preferred vendor for government agencies and streamlines the contracting process.

Getting on the schedule will help the company grow its year-old public-sector business, said Barry Prokop, director of public sector for Personic in Fairfax, Va. The company joins two other firms providing similar services through the GSA schedule, Prokop said.

"Our plan is very aggressive this year in trying to attract public sector organizations to Personic," Prokop said. "We see the GSA [schedule] as not only a real benefit to our customers, but a strong competitive advantage for us in this sector."

Personic software allows agencies to automatically post job openings on multiple Web sites, accept applications in various formats, schedule interviews, scan resumes for key words and incorporate information such as pre-interview questions into candidate rankings.

The company won its first federal contract in August 2000 with Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, N.M., Prokop said. He did not disclose the terms of the deal. Personic's software at Los Alamos will streamline the hiring process and allow managers to find, qualify and hire employees via the Internet in a highly competitive job market.

"Personic's special features and functionality designed specifically for public sector organizations were important factors in our decision to partner with them to help us attract key employees," said Brian Hughes, deputy project leader at Los Alamos.

Personic's state and local work includes contracts with the states of Nebraska and Washington and the University of Maryland.
