OrlandoJobs.com constantly evaluates how the ever changing world of technology will affect our online recruiting business model. One thing is for sure; if our services do not source and produce talent you need to make hires, our business model can’t sustain itself.
We will not let that happen.
Our latest release is the largest in our history. We have spent the last year talking with talent acquisition managers, internal and external recruiters, human resource professionals, Central Florida job seekers, developers and search engine marketing and optimization companies. Our goal was to find out what employers really wanted in a niche city job board that would help not only support their talent sourcing but also their employment branding. For job seekers, they wanted to easier access to the site, a faster and more effective application process and wanted to do all of this on their mobile devices and tablets.
While the new OrlandoJobs.com has numerous new features, here are four features that you should know about that will increase your applications that meet the job requirements.
1. Resume Search Agents. You can now set up powerful “resumes by email” alerts that will notify you immediately when a candidate joins the OJ Network and their skills fit your open jobs or future job openings.
*The resume alert can be set up using numerous parameters. Don’t miss out on great local candidates!
2. “Knock Out Questions”. For those of you who are not using an applicant track system, we now have filter questions that will help you sort your applications based on job seekers response to these “yes” and “no” questions. If your job requires a four year college degree, you can ask all applicants before they apply if they completed a 4 year degree and they have to select an answer before submitting.
3. The GreatJobSpot.com Network. We are building a network of job sites that will power your job posting. For employers, it means more traffic, more applications to your job postings and more exposure for your employment brand. Our technology will allow you to post your job to our network of sites including GreatJobSpot.com, GreatFloridaJobs.com and any of our niche sites that are relevant (Like TBJobs.com and GreatJaxJobs.com).You get access to all sites automatically and our technology features your jobs accordingly.
4. Mobile/Tablet Responsive Website Design. Mobile/tablet recruiting is very important in the recruiting process. The new OJ works on any device automatically. Job seekers can search, read and apply to your jobs right from their cell phone. Over 30% of our website traffic is already is using the site via mobile or tablet and this is why we have invested to have the best mobile recruiting technology.
We built the new OrlandoJobs.com website with tools that employers and jobseekers actually will find relevant and made them much easier to use. We have been live for three weeks and we have had tremendous feedback and suggestions. We are really looking forward to the future.
