Confidential CV's for top Employers

"Great new job, none of the old hassles! - Confidential CV's for top Employers"

23 November 2007

NZ unemployment levels have reached an all time low and have hovered around 3.5% for some time. New phrases such as ‘brain drain’ have been coined and become a common part of banter for employers, students and job hunters alike.

It’s a tough time to be an employer. The skill shortage list is growing and being constantly reviewed by immigration, which is reflected in growing numbers of international workers migrating here for lifestyle reasons.

The move towards more cost effective hiring mechanisms and the sharp increase in the use of internet sites and online marketing are becoming the norm. Generation’s X and Y have come to rely on online job posts as a key part of their job search and other generations have been quick to follow suit. Sites such as Seek, TradeMe and newly launched have experienced runaway success with job hunters and employers. Applications are faster; easily submitted and can be managed in their inbox.

Gone are the days of employers placing an ad and having piles of CV’s to consider. Employees are more often being headhunted as employers struggle to attract a suitable calibre of applicants. Passive job hunters have proven themselves to be substantially more cost effective to hire.

Newly launched stands out as a candidate-focused portal. It avoids the clutter of also being a job board and focuses simply on putting candidates in front of employers. With clean easy design and simple functionality its mantra is to provide Confidential Online CV’s for top employers. And it’s FREE for job hunters to upload their CV.

Recruitment agencies also suffering from a lack of available talent are embracing this technology. It allows them to search a database using criteria such as skills, experience, location and salary expectation. With the job hunter’s permission, they can purchase a copy of the CV to present to their client. Should they be uninterested, they simply decline access and their details remain secure.

It’s a brave new world for employers, job hunters and recruiters, but now it seems help is at hand.
