Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Are you sick of hearing the same old job hunting 'words of wisdom' during this economically-challenging environment? "It's tough out there; no one is hiring"; and "People are working 3 or 4 jobs just to survive," are among some of the more popular phrases being circulated by friends, family, and self-professed experts. The folks at Backpage.com, however, the online community's premier classified website, think it's time for you to tune out the bad mojo and log onto your computer.
More and more people are ignoring conventional employment naysayers, as evidenced by a 30% increase in Backpage.com's job-seeking traffic in the past two months. With a completely FREE, no-obligation, user-friendly template, for the past five years Backpage.com has been successfully placing applicants with the jobs they desire, whether it is registered nursing, massage therapy, reception work, nannying, bartending, driving, warehouse managing, serving, or any other hundreds of listed opportunities that are presently awaiting discovery.
According to Carl Ferrer, Backpage.com site founder, it's imperative that job seekers stay constantly active in their online pursuit of employment, especially when using such an efficient site. "Good jobs don't stay online for long, so job seekers need to reply to new postings the same day if possible," he explains. "Employers get enough applicants from their postings in just a few days and are removing the postings once they get enough applicants. It is common for our support department to get requests to find ads posted by employers that are no longer online."
What does this mean for the job applicant? It means that the good gigs are still out there, but that one has to work harder right now to stay ahead of the pack. And for the employer looking to isolate the cream of the crop, $1 ensures that the FREE help wanted posting will rotate to the top of the search screen every 3 days. Further, ads on Backpage.com are sent to well-known employment websites like Indeed.com and SimplyHired.com, allowing employers to further maximize their exposure.
Backpage.com's superior operational aspects- FREE postings, up-to-date listings, and a wide range of legitimate job titles- also mean that the online traffic is increasing by the second. With nearly 10 million unique visitors each month, Backpage.com is the online destination for both job hunters and talent seekers.
