Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 2008/10/28 - TheJobMagnet announces partnerships with Retail BC and BC Restaurant and Food Services Association (“BCRFA”) to launch a recruitment program aimed at providing job seekers in both the retail and food service sectors with access to holiday jobs.
Retail BC and BCRFA have enlisted the innovative online and mobile recruiting solutions offered by TheJobMagnet, a Vancouver trail-blazer in social media-based recruiting, to provide to their memberships of over 3000 BC retailers and 3000 BC restaurants and food service businesses.
“Our partnership with leading organizations like Retail BC and BCRFA will see the entire process of securing seasonal work become easier than ever before.” explains Divesh Sisodraker, TheJobMagnet CEO. “We know that our candidate base will be looking for work leading up to, and during the holiday season, and through these programs, we will be able to provide them with access to thousands of potential employers looking to hire.”
Members of TheJobMagnet will be tapped into the employment needs of retailers and restaurateurs across the province through TheJobMagnet’s online and mobile recruitment process. TheJobMagnet works to engage potential candidates where they currently frequent online, and offers them a quick and easy, 60-second application process that can be completed via email, Facebook or mobile messaging. Prospective candidates can be matched with jobs based on location, preferences, and availability.
“What we are offering candidates through the use of TheJobMagnet is a completely innovative approach. There is nothing faster or more effective available. Instead of heading down to the mall to collect, fill out and submit applications, a candidate can apply for a job using a mobile phone while walking down the street, or at home in between checking their Facebook messages.” comments Sisodraker.
As many job seekers look to supplement income in preparation for a particularly expensive time of year, TheJobMagnet, in partnerships with Retail BC and BCRFA, will provide candidates with targeted access to retail outlets and restaurants looking to expand staff volumes in preparation for bustling holiday crowds.
The recruiting techniques offered by TheJobMagnet are ground breaking in North America and have quickly attracted attention from top brands and Gen Y candidates alike. These partnerships clearly exemplify a shift in recruiting style and a move towards bridging the gap between old recruiting methods and new preferred modes of communication.
