You’d expect that with over 50,000 job boards dedicated to connecting job seekers
and employers, life would be easier for both sides. Unfortunately this is not the
case. Instead, the online employment market has become highly fragmented, noisy
and very inefficient. Our mission is to connect job seekers and employers as efficiently
as possible. With this mission in mind, we have licensed the best technology available
in the market today and joined a vast network of sites called TheJobNetwork,
a partnership of thousands of job sites, giving employers and recruiters the highest
exposure to their job ads. Here are some of the challenges faced by employers and
our compelling solutions:
- With tens of thousands of unconnected job sites
operating on the web, job seekers and employers have never had a more difficult
time connecting. For example, a nurse in one location may find one of these job
sites and post her resume. A hospital from the same location may find another job
site and post its job. Because these two job sites are, in general, not connected,
the hospital and the nurse do not find each other, leaving both sides disappointed
and frustrated. Or site is a part of a network of over 1000 job sites, all using
a common database of both jobs and candidates
. In addition, our network
is affiliated with thousands of third-party job boards to which we sends jobs, resulting
in an unprecedented exposure for jobs and candidates. Our Job Network connects jobs
and people across hundreds of industries and locations throughout North America.
Now the nurse and the hospital can easily connect, while the two participating websites
that connected them benefit as well. Value is created for everyone – the employer
posting the job, the candidate looking for the job, and the websites that brought
each to the common network. By centralizing the online employment market, jobs and
people can connect. The network includes a variety of local, vertical and niche
sites, as well as a wide variety of social networks and blogs.
2. Separating active and passive candidates
– Traditional job sites force
employers to choose between posting a job and searching a resume database (with
each activity carrying its own price). In our experience employers want to reach
the most qualified candidates regardless of their job seeking status, so job sites
price these separately as a revenue generating ploy. Our site combines the process
of posting a job and searching a resume database into one seamless operation
After posting a job it is immediately and automatically matched with passive candidates
from our database of candidates from the entire TheJobNetwork. At the same time,
the job is also featured across the entire network and begins to attract active
candidates who apply for the job. Employers see these passive (matched) candidates
and candidates who apply to the posted position, all within the same intuitive employer
interface. Our combined process replaces the need to search separately or pay extra
3. Keyword Search Technology
– Keyword search technology was designed to
cross-reference large numbers of documents, not to connect job seekers and employers.
Oddly enough, the two-way matching technology offered by online dating sites more
closely emulates the dynamic needed to reciprocally match jobs with people. It’s
not enough that the preferences of one side be satisfied. Both side’s preference
must be met for a match to occur. This is the advantage of the RealMatch technology.
The RealMatch technology is based on a comprehensive taxonomy of job titles and
skills that is used by job seekers and employers alike to define their professional
credentials and job requirements respectively. The technology uses both information
entered by the users, as well as information found on the resumes and the job description.
Using artificial intelligence the system screens, ranks and grades the candidates.
The best candidates and applicants automatically rise to the top so you can concentrate
on recruiting and not on managing a tidal wave of unqualified applicants. The result
is a completely new experience for employers. Job seekers benefit from a similar
experience when they look for a job.
4. Pay to post pricing model
– The antiquated pay-to-post pricing model places
all the risk on the employer with no guarantee of results. The employer posts a
job and hopes (and prays) that the posting generates good prospects. Payment has
been made regardless of whether any qualified candidates respond to the posting.
This risky pricing model has left a wake of disappointed employers which causes
many small and medium size companies to be very selective where they post their
job openings – making it that much harder for candidates to find the jobs in the
first place. RealMatch and its partners don’t charge for this portion of the service.
All hourly and salaried positions can be posted on TheJobNetwork absolutely
free. Employers are then provided the matching candidate profiles (with contact
information removed) for them to review. When the employer is convinced that RealMatch
can deliver the type of candidates that meet their definition of qualified, it makes
the buying process easy. Employers can choose to purchase a Resume Viewing Package
and access all the resumes they like. The point is, if an employer doesn’t like
the candidates we present, they can walk away knowing they haven’t spent a dime.
In contrast, when an employer pays upfront and is disappointed, the money has already
been irreversibly spent. This risk-free model results in more jobs for candidates
to match against and apply to and a risk free pricing model for employers. Another
win-win. We thought the time had come for some fundamental changes to take place
in the online employment advertising market and we hope you’ll agree. We’d welcome
your feedback. Email us email@example.com
