US job finder comes to town

Internet employment solutions company HotJobs.com Ltd has established an Australian office, HotJobs.com Pty Ltd (Australia).

The Australian operation is currently negotiating with human resources management and internal recruiters in corporate and

government organisations to list new job vacancies on its site at www.HotJobs.com.au

Director James Garvey said HotJobs decided to establish its first site outside the US in Australia as the country’s take-up of web-based employment services was second only to the US.

Mr Garvey said the Australian online classified space was growing rapidly with many new entrants in recent months.

“The majority of these organisations are best described as online lists of jobs or CVs,” Mr Garvey said.

“They simply do not offer the security, privacy or applicant-tracking tools large corporate HR departments of professional job seekers need.

“This is where HotJobs.com distinguishes itself – by effectively providing an entire recruitment solution for member companies via the Internet.”

The site features HotBlock, a security measure that lets job seekers block certain companies such as current and past employers from seeing their CVs on the database.

It allows job seekers to set up their own career home page

tailored to their specifications such as geographic preference.

HotJobs.com gained mass recognition when the company spent half of its 1998 revenue on a single 30-second television advertisement during the US Super Bowl in 1999, making it the smallest company in history to purchase Super Bowl airtime.

Mr Garvey said the company was recently named the sixth most-recognised e-commerce brand in the US and the country’s best-known job site – surpassing

monster.com – as a result of the marketing campaign.

“Our traffic went up 700 per cent the day after the Super Bowl,” he said.

Mr Garvey said on average, one major company was coming on board each day.

“Sausage Software, Clarendon Homes and Goodman Fielder have just joined,” he said.
