Oak Park, IL (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
On April 1, 2015, the state’s leading newspaper launches a new platform to boost employment with unmatched local coverage, with plans to incorporate participating newspapers throughout the state.
The Charleston Gazette-Mail, West Virginia’s leading newspaper, introduces WVJobfinder.com, a new job board that connects the full span of job seekers and employers. Featuring the most up-to-date employment opportunities from the state’s leading employers, it provides job seekers with unmatched local coverage, allowing them to search for positions solely in the areas where they live.
Going live on Wednesday, April 1, WVJobfinder.com offers employers many different features to make their recruitment efforts more convenient and effective. These include automatic print uploads to WVJobfinder.com when companies advertise with WVJobfinder.com-affiliated newspapers. Other features include online job postings, company profiles, banner ads, and more.
Of course, job seekers benefit as well. Each candidate has the ability to create a professional profile, and enjoy such convenient features as resume-writing tips, automatic job-opening email alerts, and access to employer profiles.
“We feel that the large national job boards such as Monster and CareerBuilder are not tailored to the needs of West Virginians,” said VP/Advertising John Kelly. “WVJobFinder.com focuses exclusively on the needs and opportunities within the state of West Virginia. We are working with the West Virginia Press Association to roll this statewide solution to all West Virginia newspapers that wish to participate.”
WVJobfinder.com was designed, developed, and supported by Shaker Recruitment Consultants (SRC). SRC is widely respected for facilitating career sites, and has extensive experience in creating job boards and in establishing the networks of local publishers essential to their success. Charleston Gazette-Mail Classified Advertising Sales Manager, Jennifer Starsick, expressed her enthusiasm for the dynamic new venture. “This is truly a promising new day for the employers and job seekers of West Virginia, as well as the Gazette-Mail. Our entire team believes WVJobfinder.com to be the most significant development on West Virginia’s recruitment scene.”
