JOBADX LAUNCHES SWITCHBOARD
JobAdx, the programatic ad solution has just launched Switchboard, our Inventory Management system at the recent TAtech event. It’s an SSP that allows users to manage multiple feeds from one platform and additionally applies our programmatic technology to those feeds – whether or not those feeds are coming from JobAdx itself. In our industry, most job boards & publishers work with multiple vendors to absorb feeds, many of whom aren’t offering the benefits of programmatic. Switchboard makes it easy to implement real-time bidding, candidate profiling, dynamic delivery, and data visibility.
FIND MY FLOCK IS A NEW WOMEN FOCUSED JOB SITE
How does Find My Flock work for job-seekers, companies and for you? How do you make money?
We don’t charge technologists anything. We only charge companies.
The whole idea is that anyone can post a job to our normal job board but there are also these special elevated vetted jobs. Those are companies that we have vetted. We’ve gone in and talked to developers off the record. If they say no, or if we find some reason that they’re not an inclusive company, we turn that company down. If we do support that company, then we’re sure that this is going to be a positive place for everyone to be sent to work.
CASINO CAREERS UPGRADES TEHNOLOGY
Casino Careers has had quite the year when it comes to assisting both employers and job seekers. The company created a free electronic job feed process for annual clients, saving them thousands of dollars in annual ATS fees, and the salaries and time associated with manual job posting.
“Our electronic feed automatically lists our clients’ opportunities on our job board,” said Dan King, IT Manager. “Our focus on creating an efficient system for employers to post jobs, review applicant resumes and communicate with qualified candidates, has resulted in the 90% retention rate we have with our annual clients.”
In July, Casino Careers announced a partnership with TopResume, one of the largest resume-writing service in the world. Job seekers who upload a resume to the Casino Careers website now have the option to have their resume reviewed for free by TopResume.
“We are delighted to partner with an organization that has the same goal — to help others present their expertise in the best light, so as to attain opportunities to advance professionally and care for their families,” said Beth Deighan, president of Casino Careers.
