Child care and senior care employers need a more efficient way to fill open positions with qualified caregivers. We're excited about providing the first dedicated solution for connecting caregivers with caregiving companies.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) March 24, 2009
Today Care.com (http://www.care.com ), the premier source of trustworthy care options for families, announced the launch of Care.com for Recruiters, the first online employment resource of its kind. Exclusively serving the child care and senior care communities, Care.com for Recruiters is a targeted job posting service that helps companies nationwide fill their care provider hiring needs by connecting them with pre-screened candidates seeking caregiving careers.
Care.com for Recruiters helps employers fill hiring vacancies in child care jobs and senior care jobs. This exciting, new offering serves child care centers, nanny agencies, senior living facilities, home care agencies, and other health care organizations by allowing them to post job openings and to review applications and résumés online. Care.com for Recruiters enables these companies to find qualified employees faster by directly targeting their desired applicant base. And it does so at a lower cost than catch-all job sites.
Caregivers looking for career opportunities can search for full- and part-time jobs by ZIP code and position type, which helps them locate local employment openings that are the best match for their skills and experience. Care.com for Recruiters will connect classroom teachers and assistants to child care centers, nanny candidates to agencies, and geriatric care managers, certified nursing assistants, and in-home providers to elder care organizations.
"Now, more than ever, our country needs to create jobs and help committed workers find employment," said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com. "Child care and senior care employers need a more efficient way to fill open positions with qualified caregivers. We're excited about providing the first dedicated solution for connecting caregivers with caregiving companies."
As an added feature to help companies find the highest-quality employees, all caregiver profiles and job applicants on Care.com for Recruiters will be pre-screened by a specialized team of mothers with experience evaluating caregivers (the Care.com Mom Force), to prevent the clutter of unqualified applicants that is so common with general recruiting sites.
Founded in 2006, Care.com provides a trusted place for families and care providers to easily connect, share caregiving experiences, and get advice. The company addresses the unique lifecycle of care needs that each family goes through -- including child care, special needs care, tutoring, senior care, pet care, housekeeping and more. The service enables families to find and select the best care possible based on detailed profiles, background checks and references for hundreds of thousands of pre-screened providers who seek to share their services. Through its Care.com for Recruiters service, Care.com also enables companies to find high quality caregiving employees. For more information, visit http://www.care.com.
