MyHometownJobs.com is a state-of-the-art job board designed to address the needs of local employers and job seekers. This new employment website was developed by Online Advantage, Inc. http://osadvantage.com and licensed to WDBJ7 TV, CBS affiliate serving 25 counties in Southwest and Central Virginia. The main objective for MyHometownJobs.com is to bring together employers and job seekers in Roanoke, Lynchburg, New River Valley, Danville, Martinsville and Smith Mountain Lake.

"WDBJ7 is proud to offer MyHometownJobs.com to our viewing area and to further our commitment to the continued economic development of the region," said Ray Sullivan, General Sales Manager of WDBJ7. http://wdbj7.com "This site is a great resource for Roanoke and the entire Southwest and Central Virginia area because of its focus on local companies and local job seekers."
MyHometownJobs.com offers a unique concept for both employers and job seekers. “Our goal is to serve and aid Employers and HR Managers with a simple but technically advanced job site” states Ira Kaufman, President of Online Advantage, Inc. Employers can feature their job opportunities and work environment through videos showcasing their company, links to their company website and individual job postings. Through the Power Resume Search, employers can screen candidates, target resume searches and identify perfect matches for their employment opportunities. Human Resource Managers can benefit from various tools, including an Advice Center and career fair listings.
The easy to use site allows job seekers to browse jobs within the entire local area or limit their search to one specific location. Registration is free to job seekers and they can post resumes and apply online. Their customized briefcase allows them to manage their job searches and applications. Each job seeker that posts a resume will be entered into a monthly drawing for $100. Seekers can search for full-time, part-time, and contract employment opportunities in more than 100 categories including healthcare, engineering, sales, IT, customer service, and construction. There is also a Latino job search. Persons relocating to the area benefit by viewing the relocation area, where in addition to employment opportunities they can find links to city statistics and school information.
Tom Fraticelli, WDBJ New Media Manager, said, “The results have far exceeded our expectations. During the first 45 days we have 95 local employers registered and 250 jobs posted on MyHometownJobs.com. Through our television advertising, we have also attracted nearly 800 job seekers with over 300 resumes posted. The results demonstrate the need in the Roanoke Valley for a site of this kind.”
