Web 2.0 – New Features for Recruiting

comp.JPG We all know how stressful job hunting can be, settling for any mediocre job doesn’t seem to cut it in the long run. Hiring an individual for a company is not an easy task as well. Although attractive on paper, a candidate may not be the best fit once you meet him in person. A simple search for job titles and criteria does not mean that the position may suit you the best. As popular online sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn started helping recruiters find top talent, there are improved recruiting tools now offered, which can change the way companies hire potential job seekers. Kevin Wheeler from ere.net lists the hottest trends for 2008, including interactive websites that allow companies of any size, the chance to build a great recruiting website. Standout Jobs created Reception, a suite of web-based tools to power companies’ online recruiting efforts. A company can showcase its culture and team through videos, blogs, pictures, and other applications. Aside from marketing jobs and company profile, Reception also features an applicant tracking system. Instead of sending a resume to a database, an intimate relationship is built between you and the job seeker.
