With Web 2.0 technologies and online networking revolutionizing the career space, Career 2.0 is all about career advancement through online business networking, and enhancing one’s visibility in the business world with an online presence. PayScroll.com, an online Career 2.0 company is committed to empowering job seekers with a one-stop career site featuring a salary search tool, a job search tool and a business networking platform, to help candidates make better educated decisions in the pursuit of their dream job.
“The beta launch of PayScroll.com marks the beginning of our endeavor to provide a career-focused Web 2.0- based platform.” said PayScroll cofounder Geraldine Yong. “We recognize that the job search process involves a number of interrelated steps such as researching and exploring career options, networking, interviewing, and negotiating job offers.”
PayScroll.com differs from most traditional career sites which function primarily as informational sites that provide only salary information, job listings, or career advice. Developed as a seamlessly integrated platform, PayScroll users can search through PayScroll’s salary database which currently has about 1 million salary profiles, search for current job listings provided by Indeed.com, the most comprehensive search engine for jobs, and network with other professionals in the PayScroll CareerQnA community.
Compared with traditional career sites that require users to input information on numerous data entry pages before obtaining any results, PayScroll.com provides a simplistic yet effective search tool. Users can conduct quick salary searches by job title and location, or by company and location in a single click and instantly view the average salary and salary range for a specific position. Additional salary resources are also available, such as an innovative Salary Mapper which is integrated using a Google Maps API, and the PayScroll SalaryCenter which displays graphs of aggregated salary averages for various job titles in popular cities in the United States.
“We are excited to integrate Indeed‘s comprehensive search engine for jobs with PayScroll.com,” said Alfred Toh, cofounder of PayScroll. “As the leading vertical search engine for jobs, Indeed makes it easier for our users to narrow in on jobs that fit their specific requirements.” PayScroll’s job search feature allows users to save the jobs of interest to a job cart, continue browsing for additional jobs, and then return to the job cart to submit job applications.
Cofounder of PayScroll Alfred Toh explains, “PayScroll.com’s CareerQnA feature aims to serve both as a career advice sharing community and as an invaluable self-promoting mechanism which creates a space for PayScroll users to promote their online presence.”
PayScroll CareerQnA’s question and answer format is designed to encourage users to connect with others who share similar passions or experience and also to experiment exploring outside their comfort zone; for instance making a career switch. Employers and recruiters are also encouraged to utilize PayScroll CareerQnA to identify potential candidates or connect with professionals.
Through their specialized PayScroll profile, detailing their personality and skill set, PayScroll users can tag their skills, rank those skills and then interact with other folks in the community from similar or different professions and industries. Besides serving as a question and answer platform for career-related questions, PayScroll users can also build upon their professional reputation by drawing on their own knowledge and expertise to provide advice to peers.
