Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
Media Staffing Network, the first media-specific, full-service staffing company has launched a free job site to promote all jobs across all media. The site, http://www.mediajobsandmore.com, launched in mid January within the Media Staffing Network site to help bring together job seekers and media companies.
According to Laurie Kahn, founder/CEO of Media Staffing Network, consolidation and multi-platform selling in the media industry created more opportunities and needs for talent with varied backgrounds and expertise. There was no media-specific site where professionals could converge to view opportunities across all platforms. The new site makes it easier for employers to reach a larger audience and gives job seekers a wider variety of jobs to view.
The job board allows media companies to post jobs for free, but does not allow job seekers to post resumes due to confidentiality. Many passive job seekers are afraid to visit job sites on which it is required to register or post a resume.
Job seekers do have the ability to enter a database where they can be contacted confidentially if a job search arises that matches their qualifications. The choice is theirs on whether to pursue the position or not. Job seekers contact the hiring managers directly for any posted jobs.
In addition to the job board, there are numerous free tools to assist both the employer and job seeker including resume and job description templates, interview questions, tips, etc. designed to make the hiring process simpler and more effective for all involved.
"Our business model is to help companies hire so we offer several solutions that range from assisting a company in screening resumes on an hourly basis, strategizing on developing a recruitment plan to full executive search. With our new site, we hope to expose people to the level of service and quality that are clients have grown to respect," says Kahn. "For us to be able to give something back is very rewarding."
