(PRWEB) April 3, 2007
On April 2nd 2007 The Jobs Search Engine allthetopbananas.com will launch in the UK.
The site, with its revolutionary approach to the job search engine market, is intended to be the UK's most helpful and comprehensive jobs search; for both job seekers and recruiters.
This is not another jobs board joining the thousands of existing jobs web sites. Allthetopbananas.com offers an impressively new approach to jobs searching, which is widely beneficial to today's job seekers.
"Today the UK has approximately 12 million online job seekers and thousands of job boards. Searching for a new job is far from a simple or enjoyable experience. Our mission is simple; to be the most helpful job search available. Our website contains no unhelpful and distracting banner advertisements. Everything we create on our site is created around this basis."
Allthetopbananas.com uses custom written software to index company and agency websites to give the user a vast selection of jobs to choose from. This is achieved through the configuration of 'Boris the job spider' which is an advanced internet spider created by allthetopbananas.com to visit participating companies' sites and extract all the job information. This eliminates the necessity for employers to have to re-key jobs into the jobs search engine site; saving both time and money. 'Boris' uses breakthrough technology enabling him to fill in search forms and recognise closing dates, salaries, job titles and even the town name where the position is based. This technology has a very high degree of accuracy in Geo-coding jobs, which enables 'Boris' to work out the exact location of a job enabling a more accurate radius result for job searches.
The site moves away from the conventional job site model as each job displays links directly back to the recruiter's website. This is directly beneficial for the employer as it increases the return on the investment a business has already made through the construction and maintenance of their own website. By using this link strategy the site does not just introduce the job seeker to a job, but also the company they may potentially work for. The job seeker is equally rewarded through the elimination of numerous form filling tasks and the ability to apply directly to the desired company; with quicker results.
The wide range of features that are available to the user from the launch includes keeping track of recent searches and favourite jobs; e-mailing users about jobs they may be interested in according to their user profile; accurate mile radius searching replacing searching by counties and also the option for the user to upload their CV to a database. This enables employers to subscribe to the database as a bolt-on service to browse candidate's CVs. This process offers a different approach to most other job sites as employers do not have to pay per CV. This allows more employers to have access to the database which effectively gives the job seeker access to a wider range of job prospects benefiting both the employer and the potential employees.
Allthetopbananas.com will provide job seekers with an advanced search of an initial 60,000 jobs which will increase from the end of April. It will uniquely expose all of a company's vacancies; not just those positions individually paid to be promoted on job boards. This service means that users are not restricted to searching only for jobs that an employer can afford to advertise, but an unlimited amount at low cost to the company. The introductory prices for 2007 allow companies to place an unrestricted number of vacancies on the jobs search engine for a low monthly subscription of £500. Instead of standard, per-job advertising charges there are a range of recruitment service subscription packages; all of which include monthly reports which show the traffic individual recruiter's jobs have received through the site. A director for allthetopbananas.com stated:
"Staff turnover fluctuates across industry and markets costing businesses a great deal of disruption and money! The cost of recruitment has been spiralling upwards and out of control for too long. We aim to bring things back down to earth by providing a new type of service delivering high results at a realistic fixed cost, making it easy for companies to budget."
To help job seekers to receive the most current and accurate information, jobs are automatically removed from allthetopbananas.com on their closing date or on the same date they are removed from the company's own website. Although this could reduce the number of vacancies the site holds, it is more accurate information in comparison to many job boards that keep jobs online for 60 days without removing filled positions before this period. Allthetopbananas.com provides a more helpful service to both the job seeker and the recruiter. With the same objective, duplicate vacancies are identified and removed from the site.
The initial beta release of allthetopbananas.com has had a very positive response from the 15,000+ beta users. For the company however, this is only the beginning. Long term plans for the site include the ability for users to subscribe to e-mails and RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of their favourite searches, pragmatic job searching, a training search engine and job seeker networking features.
The launch of the site is backed by a large marketing campaign and sophisticated search engine optimisation which will see the number of visitors in the first months of the site's launch reaching over 100,000.
Allthetopbananas.com job search engine is committed to creating an easy, usable and enjoyable job searching experience that benefits job seekers and employers alike.
