StayReadyPro ACCESS Launched As Unemployment Returns to Pre-Recession Levels

Share Article

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the economy and labor market show tremendous progress, prompting many out-of-work Americans to resume their job search. StayReadyPro recently launched ACCESS to help HR teams and job seekers create a more successful search.

“We’re seeing upward movement in the labor market and the economy as a whole...which means companies are hiring. [StayReadyPro ACCESS helps to] find that elusive “right” fit without investing massive amounts of time or money.”

At the start of April, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said that the labor market and U.S. economy have demonstrated “tremendous progress” in the wake of the financial crisis and the Great Recession.

Yellen went on to say the country is nearing its goal-level of maximum employment as she spoke in New York on a panel of three Reserve Chair predecessors. According to Yellen, based on most measures of unemployment, the labor market is “vastly improved.”

The unemployment rate has been at or below 5% since October 2015, down from a peak of 10% in October 2009. Yellen also said most members of the Federal Open Market Committee believe unemployment will continue to go lower. As a result, the Labor Department recently reported the people re-entering the job market grew in March, a strong indicator of confidence in the direction of the economy.

A representative from StayReadyPro, a Texas-based career platform, believes these trends will continue and as a result StayReadyPro ACCESS was launched. ACCESS is a unique way to simplify the recruiting and job search process for both HR professionals and potential employees. It works by offering potential recruits and job applicants the chance to view video Career Profiles highlighting the ins and outs of available positions from real employees in these positions.

It’s advantageous for HR professionals because it allows them to narrow their candidate search to only those applicants who are serious and have a real understanding of what an open position entails. The result is a streamlined hiring process that reduces turnover and problems associated with disengaged employees.

At the same time, it’s ideal for job seekers because it gives them a real world “day-in-the-life” glimpse of job openings, so there isn’t a discrepancy between expectations and what they encounter when hired.

“Now is a really exciting time to launch ACCESS,” said Marcus Jordan with StayReadyPro. “We’re seeing upward movement in the labor market and the economy as a whole, and we’re finally returning to pre-Recession levels, which means companies are hiring. They’re looking for top talent and ACCESS offers them an element to sift through applicants and find that elusive “right” fit without investing massive amounts of time or money.”
