This concept makes sense and is now technically viable
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 11, 2006
Web2Corp (OTC BB: WBTO), a leading web 2.0 technology company, has announced that it will be launching a new member to its extensive network of sites, a video job matching service, JobMatchPro.com.
JobMatchPro.com is similar to well-known online resume hosting services Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com, and HotJobs.com, but it offers a unique improvement. It will allow users to post resumes and search for job openings world-wide, but also both job seekers and employers can post video to accompany their resumes as well as the job openings published on the site. By including video along with the traditional text resume profiles, job seekers will be able to give potential employers a better sense of who they are, demonstrating their creativity or sharing their skills by live example. Employers who post positions will be able detail the job offering with specific interview questions while sharing the environment, workspace, or location of a specific job.
“This concept makes sense and is now technically viable,” says William Mobley CEO of Web2 Corp. “Not only do millions of internet users have web cameras or disc cameras, but anyone with a video-capable cell phone can make use of this -- a lot of people have already adopted the technology needed to participate in video interviews.
“This allows employers and potential employees to really get a feel for each other. Every employer can relate to the tedious nature of the interview process: job posting, resume scanning, and scheduling actual interviews makes for a lot of repetitive tasks and wastes a lot of time and labor. Even after all of that effort, once you’ve gotten people in for interviews, it’s still hit or miss.
“With JobMatchPro.com, employers will be able to show the position with video. That will open the potential job candidate’s eyes to what the position offers, showing them the actual place they will be working. On the other hand, the employer will see just what the potential candidate has to offer and make the determination if that person could fit within their company.”
JobMatchPro.com will offer keyword searches for all resume and job posting profiles using the same powerful web-crawling technology that powers popular technologies developed by Web2 Corp. JobMatchPro.com is free for both job posters and job seekers and will also provide free hosting for resumes and videos.
JobMatchPro.com will launch this innovative video resume service in January of 2007.
