Employers are looking for creative and effective ways to recruit
Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
CareerTours (http://www.careertours.com ), a Web 2.0 recruiting tool that allows career seekers to “experience” their next career, announces the launch of over 1,000 new job boards. The company, which launched in 2007, features interactive video postings and a unique viral marketing system that connects the right careers with the right candidates. The new job boards will consist of city-specific boards, industry-specific boards and hundreds of partner sites that are “powered by” the CareerTours proprietary technology.
“CareerTours is expanding like wildfire as we’re adding literally hundreds of career videos a day for companies in every industry,” said Aaron Bare, CEO of CareerTours. “By launching these new city and niche specific boards, we’re not only providing a more streamlined system for job seekers, we’re giving our partners new options for reaching those hard-to-attract candidates.”
Every career that is posted on CareerTours is cross-posted throughout the largest online network in the recruiting industry. This network includes Google, MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Jobster. In addition, CareerTours uses a viral marketing tool to send job postings to potential candidates. Postings are emailed to employer networks and passed along by friends and colleagues to reach “passive” candidates who may not be looking for a new job but may be a right fit. Active job seekers can easily search the main CareerTours site or any one of the thousand new job boards specific to their city or industry.
“Employers are looking for creative and effective ways to recruit,” adds Bare. “CareerTours has the technology to attract career seekers from Generation Y to executive level. It’s not just the video components that are attractive to this vast workforce, but also the online networking tools and viral marketing tools. We have truly taken Web 2.0 into recruiting.”
CareerTours supports over 2,000 clients including Club Med, Microsoft, Shell and Capital Group. Their proprietary platform is scalable, allowing a variety of organizations to use the technology to power their own online recruiting programs.
CareerTours™ is a web 2.0 recruiting platform that offers video career postings and a unique viral marketing strategy. CareerTours cross-posts with the leading networking Web sites to ensure that the right careers reach the right candidates. See more at http://www.careertours.com.
