COMMUNITY BRANDS LAUNCHES CAREER PORTAL
Community Brands announced the launch of Career Planning Portal, a new hub of member-focused career planning resources, within its YM Careers solution.
The new Career Planning Portal is the first of its kind in the association job board industry, transforming career centers from transactional websites where employers and job seekers connect, to dynamic career destinations where professionals research, plan and develop their careers based on data, trending and forecasting insights. Career Planning Portal is launching across all the nearly 3,000 YM Careers job boards and will help associations further drive member engagement, attract new members, and increase job board traffic and revenue.
“Many associations lack the resources to provide valuable niche career planning content to their industry’s professionals, and in doing so miss a critical opportunity to recruit, engage and retain members,” said Tristan Jordan, General Manager, YM Careers. “The Career Planning Portal, integrated with YM Careers, delivers associations a turnkey way to offer this information to members and prospective members, and solidifies their role as the premier career growth resource for the professionals they serve.”
Today YM Careers powers nearly 3,000 niche association career centers, more than any other provider in the industry.
New Mom Powered Talent Community
Prowess Project, a platform connecting employers with professional women re-entering the workforce after a pause, now offers an online networking destination connecting them during the largest exodus of female talent in modern-day history. The “Community”, in addition to Prowess’ confidence training, upskilling, and job-marketplace, creates a clear path for women to go from full-time caregiver to hired.
Prowess’ new Community offers a safe place for self-nicknamed, “Prowess Pros” – educated, experienced women interested in flexible or remote work – to share thought-leadership, expert advice and best practices – all with the goal of lowering the barrier to re-entry back into the workforce.
The site builds a clear path for workforce re-entry through confidence training, upskilling, building a network and access to flexible, female-friendly jobs. Our emotional intelligence-based job-matching tech provides a better candidate/role fit cutting the interview & ramp-up time in half – saving employers time, money and headaches.
GigSmart Adds Job Listings
While they’ve focused more on temporary job opportunities in the past, GigSmart is now working to fill permanent positions as well with their new Job Board feature. This new functionality allows “businesses to post and advertise part-time and full-time positions to a user base of over 260,000 active job seekers.” The job board will include postings from a wide variety of industries and skill levels, from part-time jobs in the service industry to full-time trade positions. The current economic difficulties due to the pandemic are only inspiring GigSmart to keep expanding and helping the workforce. “With unemployment at record high levels, our mission of helping people get jobs has never felt more important,” said Oakes. “We are excited to give this capability to our business users across the country to provide access to available jobs as soon as possible.” (link)
