The majority of employers and job seekers are looking to concentrate on their local job market. It just does not make sense for a job located in Edinburgh to be listed adjacent to a job located in Los Angeles where the respective employers are looking for local candidates. GeographyJobs.com would not be as effective a resource if we bunched all jobs around the world into one big site.
Toronto, On. (PRWEB) May 23, 2008
Geography Jobs International Inc. has announced the launch of GeographyJobs.com, a niche job site that focuses on jobs related to the field of geography. The President of Geography Jobs International, Robert Libera, explains his motivation to develop GeographyJobs.com, "As someone who studied geography at university, I found little guidance and few useful resources toward pursuing a career related to geography after graduating. I knew my situation wasn't unique and wanted to help the situation by creating an employment resource dedicated to jobs in geography so that others like me, looking to stay in their field would have a greater chance at succeeding." Interested job seekers may register at no cost to create customized email career alerts, upload resumes and apply directly for posted vacancies.
To succeed in helping geography job seekers, Mr. Libera understood that he needed to develop a high quality service for employers, "I felt I had to give interested employers a resource that was easy to use and included robust features offered by some of the larger, catch-all job sites. With GeographyJobs.com, employers and recruiters reach their targeted group of job seekers without sacrificing functionality." GeographyJobs.com allows registered employers to post or edit jobs and update marketing media in real-time. Employers can accept applications in the manner that best suits them, by email, through the site or by redirecting applicants to an external site. Should applications come directly through GeographyJobs.com, employers can pre-screen and manage candidates within their member area. Employers may also proactively search for candidates in the resume database.
GeographyJobs.com is dedicated to jobs within the United States. Geography Jobs International has several sister sites dedicated to geography-related jobs in the following countries and regions: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia & New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, East Asia, and India. Mr. Libera explains the logic behind the structure of the network of sites; "The majority of employers and job seekers are looking to concentrate on their local job market. It just does not make sense for a job located in Edinburgh to be listed adjacent to a job located in Los Angeles where the respective employers are looking for local candidates. GeographyJobs.com would not be as effective a resource if we bunched all jobs around the world into one big site."
GeographyJobs.com organizes job postings into the following categories: Urban Planning Jobs, GIS Jobs, Environmental Jobs, Economic Development Jobs, Housing Jobs, Remote Sensing Jobs, Transportation Planning Jobs, Research & Analysis Jobs, Emergency Planning Jobs and Academia & Education Jobs.
