Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 9, 2006
With the arrival of GreatOrlandoJobs.com, Central Florida job seekers and human resources departments alike now have a dynamic tool to help meet their goals. With its debut on January 9 and the fast-approaching second quarter conclusion, the site can boast strong numbers, with an average of 800 new visitors daily, over 500 listings, some 3,100 resumes posted and nearly 300 clients.
The site’s early success is likely the result of its robust selection of features supported by an experienced staff of recruitment professionals and an in-house team of site developers on hand to customize features and solutions to meet specific client needs.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in 20 years in the recruitment profession, it’s that no two job applicants are alike, nor are any two human resources departments exactly alike,” said Roger Lear, president of GreatOrlandoJobs.com.
Partner Scott Kotroba concurred, “We know there’s more to successful recruitment than providing the link between a prospect and a company. Our goal is to offer the local job market a number of benefits and tools all on one site.”
The locally focused Orlando job site uses a proven blueprint. In 2001, Lear and Kotroba founded GreatInsuranceJobs.com, which has since become the nation’s leading insurance niche site with over 42,000 insurance candidates and more than 2,000 job postings. The same technology platform developed for the insurance site now drives GreatOrlandoJobs.
Job seekers using the easily navigable site have access to quick job search agents, indexed job postings, and the distance to and location of posted jobs. A blog provides articles and information on topics ranging from interview tips to local business news. Candidates can also use the automatic job match feature that will notify them any time a job in their preferred field is posted and doesn’t require registration.
Because the site’s postings are limited to the Central Florida market, candidates are able to view more pertinent information than is available on nationwide job sites while still enjoying the benefits of cutting edge technology. “Whether you live here or you’re looking to relocate to the area, you’ll find local jobs on the site without trying to filter out positions that aren’t geographically desirable,” said Kotroba, who also serves as president of GreatInsuranceJobs.com.
Human resources departments can benefit from site solutions such as results management tools, resume search agents, automated job posting and applicant tracking systems. The site also has the ability to offer complete compliance with larger companies. Another advantage large companies see is affordable packages that make it feasible to advertise every opening on the site.
In addition to solutions, GreatOrlandoJobs.com has a staff of experienced recruitment professionals to help clients design the ideal message to attract the best possible employees.
Citing the company’s experience in every recruitment aspect from direct recruiting to cost of hire and metrics, Kotroba said, “We are one in a very small community of employment professionals who understand the challenges of recruiting outstanding people for open positions. Marrying this understanding with technological capabilities, we attract candidates through both the website and a strong network.”
GreatOrlandoJobs.com’s network grows stronger daily as more clients and partners team up with the site. Partner sites feature links to GreatOrlandoJobs.com, resulting a significant number of entry points. Search engine optimization such as the site’s link to HR Marketer also drives candidates to the site as do career fairs, local events, and advertising and marketing efforts.
Further networking and partnership inroads are made through the company’s involvement on the applicant tracking systems committee for the International Association of Employment Websites, of which GreatOrlandoJobs.com is a charter member.
“I’ve been based in Orlando since 1987, recruiting on a nationwide basis,” said Lear, whose firm Lear & Associates is listed among the nation’s 20 largest permanent placement agencies. “This area’s growth and the opportunities offered here have drawn a pool of candidates who are more skilled, more experienced and more qualified than ever. Our goal is to be the leading liaison between these potential employees and local companies.”
