More passive candidates with a longer lifetime value will improve the recruitment process for HR Professionals
Beyond.com, The Career Network focused on helping people grow and succeed professionally, has launched a series of tools for professionals to better manage their careers. As the traditional job search model continues to evolve and incorporate online job postings, email marketing, social media and mobile components, Beyond.com offers a suite of resources to help professionals market themselves and connect with career information and opportunities.
By providing professionals with a place to manage their careers—not just search for a job—Beyond.com is attracting more focused candidates and making it easier for them to connect with relevant opportunities. These career management tools will guide professionals throughout their career from start to finish—from the time that they start out as an entry-level employee, to an experienced professional, to a retiree.
“In a recent survey of more than 1,700 professionals, we found that about 78% of people admitted that they should spend more time managing their careers,” said Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com. “Based on our findings we recognized that there was a void when it came to career management tools and we took it upon ourselves to fulfill this need.”
Beyond.com has made the following enhancements to their suite of career management tools:
- Talent Communities: Grants instant access to the latest information on job opportunities, industry trends, salary information, companies that are hiring and other career content. With communities serving more than 500 professions and specialties,, professionals can join any community that piques their interest.
- Beyond.com Networking Facebook App: Enables candidates to search for jobs on the Beyond.com Career Network and to learn where their friends work from within the Facebook platform.
- Personal Home Page: Delivers a personalized stream of information from the communities the job seeker is following and the jobs they have indicated they are interested in—no searching required. Rather than having to sift through job postings and career news, a member can log in to their account and quickly keep tabs on what is happening in their industry, including new jobs.
These career management tools provide greater value to the professional audience while attracting even more quality candidates. Additionally, enhanced targeting will deliver the right jobs to the right people to improve the candidate pool and expedite the recruitment process. More enhancements are planned for this year, including updates to Beyond.com's mobile applications, which currently account for 7 of the top 25 job apps in the iPhone App Store.
