Northern Light Launches

Northern Light ( has introduced (, a new subscription-based online search tool that can identify "passive" candidates for executive recruiters. RecruitingShark provides executive recruiters with access to a custom database of premium sources that are rich in information on passive candidates—those who haven't posted resumes online and are not actively seeking new jobs. The service uses an algorithm that recognizes name, title, and company combinations in a selected subset of premium Northern Light documents to create the specially filtered database.

RecruitingShark allows users to search by keyword, job title, company, date, or individual name and provides information about potential candidates for middle management to executive positions, across all disciplines. Additionally, RecruitingShark offers an archive of information for delving into the job history of a candidate. RecruitingShark supports full Boolean capability (AND, OR, NOT), including parenthetical expressions, in all search forms. There's no limit to the level of nesting in a query.

"Access to quality recruiting talent has become a substantial stumbling block in corporations across America," said David Seuss, CEO of Northern Light. "Not only in the field of technology, but in most areas of business, the recruiting of senior-level employees is a daunting task. RecruitingShark is a tool that streamlines that process and enables executive and corporate recruiters to concentrate less on identification of qualified candidates and more on the actual brokering of a mutually beneficial deal."

The service is available to corporate customers for a flat fee of $24,000 per year for an unlimited number of users, or it can be added to an existing Northern Light enterprise account for $12,000 per year.
