Launched in November NowHiring is making a play for the job board space in Australia. How are they doing this? Offering FREE job postings, yes free, for their basic employer package. Now if you are an employer in Australia and recruit you should check them out.
If you just can’t help yourself and just have to pay for a job posting (because that is “how it has always been”) they will allow you to sign up for a month package at $198/mth for unlimited jobs and some very nice features. The package provides you with:-
- Unlimited Job Postings
- Online Applicant Management
- Applicant Screening and automatic ranking
- Your logo on your Job Ads
- Advertiser Directory listing
- Job Listings on your company web site
- Bulk job upload (csv, xls, web service)
- Unlimited resume access from the resume database
Not a bad package when you look at it.
No I don’t work for them, so why the glowing advertisement? Two simple words. Blog and RSS. The second is not really a word but it still counts.
Now Hiring have a blog which can be found at http://blog.nowhiring.com.au/, go check it out and subscribe. The first few posts provide some good background about how they ended up where they are today.
The second thing is they have RSS feeds on search results. This means you can set up a feed for your favourite jobs and have them appear in your RSS reader. Here is one I prepared earlier for HR & IT jobs in Melbourne.
2006 is shaping up for a great year in the online recruitment space DownUnder.
