JobOn Enhances Video Service With National Job ListingsNumerous Hourly Positions Loaded on Site, Ready to Receive Video Applications (January 12, 2012)
STEVENSVILLE, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/12/12 -- Just a few months after launching its video job board in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. area, JobOn has completed a build out of the website and now hosts nationwide job roles to which seekers can apply by video.
Job seekers have begun to use the site as an alternative to the typical process of submitting paper applications or online forms that contain only basic information. By recording video answers to interview questions via webcam, seekers get to showcase enthusiasm and other qualities that help them stand out among other applicants. Moreover, recording answers one time and using them to apply to many positions provides a significant convenience.
Employers also are embracing the site because it offers them a powerful tool that overcomes the limitations of the usual phone screen. They can see and hear applicants and quickly narrow the list down to the best ones to bring in for a face-to-face meeting.
Says JobOn CMO Chris Ourand, "Just as online job boards disrupted the classified ad business for print publications, we expect online video to change the way that seekers and employers find each other. We are essentially putting the interview as the first step in the process, which is a more efficient approach for everyone."
Seekers' videos are recorded, hosted and submitted to employers for free. Employers range from retail, restaurant and grocery stores to those needing customer service, administrative and technical help and sales.
JobOn combines employment roles with the ability for applicants to submit a video application via webcam or smart phone. This simplifies the job-matching process for the nearly 80 million employees and nine million workplaces that hire for retail, restaurants and grocery stores. The results are greater satisfaction for employees, and less turnover and lower costs for employers.
