New option for employers provides a lower cost, responsively designed platform with award winning tools to improve the candidate experience.
Petaluma, CA, USA (August 20, 2014) — Cross-Post LLC announced today the launch of its new CareerPointe™ Recruitment Classifieds Platform designed for the newspaper industry. Cross-Post LLC, the leader in providing niche recruitment networks for ten years, serves nearly 200 newspapers in North America offering products that enable publishers to help employers recruit in specialty niche markets. Their SocialJobWorking® Network transformed the industry and other networks like Diversity, Veterans, Healthcare, Nursing, Trucking and others utilize some of the largest job boards on the web to deliver qualified talent at a fraction of the cost.
“We have listened to our customer’s needs for a stable, cost effective and responsive Recruitment Classifieds Platform. The key challenges they face with their existing platforms are mobile and social compatibility, flexibility, ease of use and most importantly tools to improve the candidate experience. We have responded with a comprehensive design that includes an award winning (ONREC 2014) technology developed by Careerleaf of Toronto Canada that puts control of a candidate’s careers back in their hands.” noted Carl Braun, Co-Founder and CEO. “The trend was a very important topic at the recent IAEWS Conference (International Association of Employment Websites) in Nashville,” he added.
Careerleaf founder Afifa Siddiqui agrees. “Careerleaf is very excited about being the technology behind CareerPointe. Our mandate is to create an exceptional candidate experience to empower job seekers with huge value while building loyalty with the platform.”
Careerpointe™ will be made available to existing as well as future potential clients with very competitive pricing and no long-term contracts making it both affordable and lucrative as newspapers and publishers will have several new options for earning additional, incremental revenue, but more importantly the candidate stickiness that other job boards lack which makes the revenue gains even more achievable. “Newspapers have a loyal, local audience. Once that readership realizes they can use the newspaper platform to manage all of their job search efforts, no matter what the site, they will respond accordingly.” Braun noted.
“Historically, job boards have placed primary focus on employer acquisition. The candidate relationship has been assumed. Essentially its been ‘If we build it they will come’ Today, there are so many options for passive and active candidates that they can be quite selective on which boards they work with and which companies they ultimately work for. Careerpointe™ is one stop shopping for job candidates. They can use the free tools to do everything from apply with a mobile device to search for free online courses to improve their resumes and their knowledge.” said John Fujii, Cross-Post President and Co-Founder.
The Newspaper Recruitment Classifieds platform was designed exclusively for the newspaper industry and helps them generate revenue easier from niche networks and other products not currently available in the marketplace. It connects seamlessly to all existing sales systems.
“I am TRULY amazed with CareerPointe™. As recruiting professionals, we try to make sure we are constantly evolving. Careerpointe™ adapts to new SEO requirements instantly and provides innovative tools to maximize revenue from an enhanced candidate experience.” noted Chelle Bize, former Manager of Recruitment Advertising with the Las Vegas Review Journal and Manager of Special Projects for the Technology Division of Southern Nevada Goodwill.
“Cross-Post has doubled in size in the last two years due to unique partnerships and an eye on the future of our industry. We have taken that growth and doubled down on new and innovative products for our customers who are intrigued about hire performing, lower cost options.” Said Braun.
