Locals Band Together for Just Jobs
Recruiters may be accustomed to thinking globally and acting locally, as they consider the economies of the communities they serve. But perhaps there are resources that you have not tapped to help support your local economy.
Are there any local efforts that you can utilize as a recruiter? Although the praises of huge search engines can and should be sung, there may be something helpful to know about right in the region you serve. Niche job boards are an important tool to understand – all recruiters should understand their local job boards and know how to judge niche job boards.
On February 1, 2011, a new website was launched for the Hudson Valley. People who live there or have always wanted to live there and see the kaleidoscopic foliage in the fall can narrow their search to jobs in this area.
“Hudson Valley Jobs” is the new website for area job seekers that streamlines the job search process, making it easier and more efficient than ever before. The website provides a comprehensive list of job openings in the Hudson Valley area by aggregating results from employer websites, newspapers, and job boards.
Job seekers in the area are already utilizing the website to find both part time and full time work in thousands of clerical positions such as receptionist and administrative assistants, to truck drivers and warehouse labor.
“The Hudson Valley is a perfect region for JustJobs to adopt for one of our regional niche boards,” said company president, Eric Shannon. “Not only are there many qualified professionals looking for work, but there is also a huge variety of professional opportunities arising as the economy recovers. Our goal is to make the most of the job seeker’s time, and help them find the perfect job.”
