)-- A new online job search site, On the Way Resume, gives job seekers and employers an innovative new way to find each other – and a summer promotion to save them some money. With unemployment approaching 10%, unemployed or underemployed job seekers are seeking innovative ways to be seen by potential employers. At the same time, businesses are downsizing HR departments and taking a closer look at the effectiveness of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars posting jobs on the big online employment sites. On The Way Resume is the answer.
“Why should employers continue to pay exorbitant fees for posting these jobs,” asks Ken Nielsen, Managing Partner of On The Way Resume. “And why should serious job seekers get lost among the millions of people who posted their resumes on a site for free without any commitment who may not be actively seeking employment?” On the Way Resume gives both parties in the job placement search a better way to find each other – partly by ensuring that candidates are serious. “Employers have the opportunity to post job openings for free and job seekers gain visibility and credibility by being part of a much smaller candidate pool,” says Nielsen.
The most unique aspect of the On the Way Resume service is the Resume Snapshot. Job Seekers list their key job qualifications and On the Way Resume turns these attributes into a sticker or magnet for the Candidate’s vehicle. Employers then use the reference number on the sticker to find out more about the candidate and contact them through a secure website portal. “Companies have been using vehicle graphics for years to promote their businesses with what is basically a moving billboard,” said Nielsen. “We are using the same concept to help job seekers stand out from the crowd. How else would a potential employer know that the person in the car next to them is not only looking for a job, but is serious enough about that search to invest in our service and innovative enough not to just wait around hoping that the right job will come their way.”
“In today’s economy, job seekers have to be willing to stand out from the crowd and make it simple for potential employers to find them,” says Shawn Hermanson, Founder of On The Way Resume. “Having an On The Way Resume sticker on your vehicle shows a level of initiative that potential employers like to see and helps employers quickly determine if your qualifications are a fit with a current opening at their company.” The Summer Promotion allows Job Candidates to sign up for the service at a reduced rate. Employers who sign up for On The Way Resume during the summer promotion will receive a lifetime membership allowing them to post an unlimited number of jobs for free. “We are encouraging employers to take advantage of this opportunity to help find the right employees for their business,” said Hermanson. The promotion will begin in August and will only last for a limited time.
