Fisher Offers Online Job Search Platform
November 13, 2008 at 11:10 AM (PT)
FISHER COMMUNICATIONS is launching a new online employment platform across eight markets, which will provide job seekers, employers and recruiters who visit FISHER's online sites, such as www.komonews.com, with a superior recruiting experience. The platform offers no-cost job postings and a continually updating results page that grades, filters and ranks candidates according to how well they qualify for a job.
FISHER's new job marketplace uniquely allows job seekers to see precisely matched jobs within two minutes, and allows them to remain anonymous while exploring new career opportunities. Further, match alerts are sent to users in real-time when a new job matches their profile and preferences.
FISHER utilizes REALMATCH's pay-for-performance pricing model that allows employers and recruiters to post jobs for free. Posted jobs are immediately matched with qualified candidates from across the entire network. Employers may view, at no charge, the profile of matching candidates; they are charged a nominal fee only if they decide to reveal the contact information of the matching and interested individual. Employers are also provided a free applicant tracking system to manage candidates throughout the hiring process.
"FISHER INTERACTIVE serves nine markets and reaches some 2.7 million unique visitors every month," FISHER INTERACTIVE NETWORK VP/GM NANCY BRUNER said. "We chose the REALMATCH platform because it provides our audience with better technology and a more useful interface. It also allows Fisher to leverage and connect each of the FISHER INTERACTIVE media sites onto one employment platform."
"FISHER INTERACTIVE reaches and serves a large audience of working professionals," REALMATCH VP/Business Development RAFAEL COSENTINO said. "FISHER's professional audience now has access to matching technology which can connect them with the jobs and companies that match their skills and preferences."
