Waterloo (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Jobs in the mining industry are outpacing the availability of skilled workers to fill them. To help bridge the gap, ACareerJob will put its innovative job recruiting and video resume app in front of more than 30,000 mining industry professional next week at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) annual convention.
The ACareerJob job finder app and video resume is a new solution to connecting skilled workers and hirers for mining jobs in the US and Canada efficiently and in real time. The app’s built-in video resume feature allows hirers to see candidates quickly and up close, eliminating paperwork while the ticker feature guarantees job postings and interested candidates are up to date and relevant.
A recent report by Deloitte describes a “chronic skill shortage” in the mining industry and the Mining Association of Canada predicts a shortage of up to 90,000 skilled workers by 2017.
“The mining industry desperately needs qualified workers and we offer help sourcing quality talent and speeding up the hiring process,” said John Francis, managing partner of ACareerJob. “Our job app allows companies to efficiently manage job postings, see the best candidates and then connect with them in real time—a simple and streamlined approach to the hiring process.”
Unlike other career-matching websites and services, the ACareerJob emphasis is on quality not quantity of candidates presented to employers. This is particularly important in the mining industry where very specific skill sets are required, Francis said.
Plus, ACareerJob.net is the only job-matching app to offer a video resume feature in addition to a candidate profile and traditional resume attachment. When job seekers create a video resume summarizing why they’re qualified for a job it adds value and increases their chances of being noticed and contacted by employers.
The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada will host its international convention and trade show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre March 3-6. For more information, visit http://www.pdac.ca/pdac/conv/.
