NewMediaHire.com's recent site update offers the digital and new media job community a host of new features resulting in increased popularity and a significant bump in Alexa site ranking.
The underlying architecture of the new site has been revamped to enable job seekers, recruiters, and employers to utilize the same social media technologies in which they are experts.
"If you're a digital media professional, or are trying to hire one, it just makes sense that the job board itself ought to employ the technology," says Robin Owens-Wright, President of New Media Hire. "We want to be the one-stop shop for all new and digital media disciplines and this latest upgrade certainly shows our commitment to that mission."
The new site has exciting new features for job seekers, recruiters, and employers. Users can host their own blog, upload video and photos, read real-time industry news, participate in forums, respond to polls and search the new media job database for free. A recent poll hosted by the site reports, perhaps surprisingly, that 40% of social media related professionals seeking employment get most of their leads not from the Internet, but from friends and colleagues. One might think that this statistic would worry someone who runs a job board for just these people.
Owens-Wright says, laughing, "That's why we made all these changes! We understand our audience and we believe that if can help to build a cohesive community for these professionals then everyone wins." The upgrade has apparently worked as the site has experienced rapid advancement in its Alexa ranking.
NewMediaHire.com caters to a large international community of digital media job seekers, employers, and recruiters, offering valuable products for each:
- New/Digital media job seekers can upload their resume for free.
- Recruiters can search resumes and contact candidates for free. If the candidate is interested, a nominal one-time 'Pay-for-Prospect' fee is charged.
- Employers can post new media positions for just $199. NewMediaHire.com also enables posting to 100's of other broadly focused job sites like Monster, CareerBuilder, and HotJobs.
NewMediaHire.com's President, Robin Owens-Wright believes they've done good work but she'll be the first to tell you it's far from over. "Oh, we've got lots more to do," she says. "We plan on increasing our international presence by having a lot more listings overseas. We're going to provide more original video content and educational information too."
