Studies have shown that candidate fall-off rates exceed 50 percent for resume posting services that require more than a field or two of input and a cut-and-paste resume. Simultaneously, it seems the candidates most likely to fall-off are desirable applicants who are still employed and highly skilled. TempWorks Job Board gives candidates the ability to submit their resume and search for jobs in a fast and efficient manner, significantly reducing the risks of fall-off and increasing staffing for the company’s pool of qualified candidates.

This .Net-based applicant portal is the latest addition to TempWorks’ suite of web-based products. From a job board on a staffing company’s Web site, an applicant can quickly complete an online application and submit a resume, automatically creating a record within the TempWorks core system. The Applicant Portal also allows prospective employees to search the staffing company’s database of open jobs that may fit their qualifications. Applicants then have the option to view further details, submit an email to alert the staffing company, add it to their job card for further review or mail it to a friend.

“As the economy picks up there are more and more opportunities for new job seekers, staffing agencies are looking for new ways of enticing those job seekers,” explains Gregg Dourgarian, CEO of TempWorks.

The Applicant Portal is built on top of the .Net framework introduced with TwX, TempWorks’ new Web-based front end application. It allows for faster application development by using existing business logic and data layer .Net assemblies. Predefined pages can be added and removed from a wizard-style state engine without recompiling the Web applications.

“Increasingly, job seekers are turning to the Internet for their next move, we have responded with our Web-based Applicant Portal which enables staffing companies to have a more aggressive approach to recruitment without the large investment,” Gregg says.
