Q1: Why pay to join SeriousJobs.Com rather than a traditional job posting site?
Reason 1: These job posting sites are "free"; for the candidate and very expensive for you.
The traditional resume/job posting websites on the internet are very expensive, especially for small to medium size firms. You pay whether or not you are successful in hiring candidates. With SeriousJobs.Com, there is a small access fee and a contingency/per hire fee.
Reason 2: These other services are bloated with millions of outdated or unqualified candidates. It's very inefficient and expensive to use them.
Since candidates are not charged to post their qualifications, these services contain millions of resumes. These databases are full of resumes of entry level candidates, already placed candidates, and passive candidates just looking for a pay raise or a job in paradise. It creates a frustrating experience for employers contacting candidates who are not serious job seekers; it wastes a lot of valuable time in the recruiting process.
Reason 3: You're a serious player and everybody knows it. A SeriousJobs.Com membership gets you closer to the qualified "short list".
Q2: How does it work?
Step 1: Join SeriousJobs.Com and fill out our employer questionnaire. If you have a promo code, enter it in the box on the form. Subscriptions for access are annual.
Step 2: Once registered, you can view our resume database immediately. You can search our targeted databases using job positions, skills, geographic location, salary and travel limitations. You can contact the candidate directly.
Step 3: You can create job postings. We walk you through the process and make it simple to manage.
Step 4: When you hire candidates from SeriousJobs.com, you pay a low $1,500 contingency fee. That's it. It's a lot less expensive than 10-20% commission charged by traditional recruiters or staffing firms.
