Are You Paying Too Much For Your Internet Recruiting Contract?

When recruiting for open positions today, most companies post their open positions on one or more of the leading Internet job boards. In fact, they are often one of the most cost-effective ways to recruit highly qualified candidates. However, to get the best value for your internet recruiting contract for any job site, you need to use a skilled negotiator who can consistently negotiate the best price. A skilled negotiator can also get additional “add-ons” for free, or at a significant discount, that enhance your candidate search results.

To get the best value from these Internet contracts, you need to make some informed decisions, and an experienced partner like Mary Pomerantz Advertising can be invaluable in helping you get them right. Some of the questions that you need to answer include the following:

  • Which job posting sites will work best for you?
  • What contract level is best for your likely usage?
  • Are there any “add-ons” that will contribute significant value?
  • What constitutes a “bargain” at different contract levels?

Don’t “go it alone” with Internet Contract Negotiations

There is a huge variety of Internet job posting sites – from broadly based sites that cover virtually any field to niche sites that focus on a specialized industry or profession. Many of these can be great options to use in recruiting candidates, but by working with MPA, you can be sure to find the right site or sites to fit your company’s individual needs. And, this is a critical first step, because one of the worst mistakes you can make is signing an Internet recruiting contract with the wrong site or sites. We can also identify which sites you can get posted on for free or a reduced price in conjunction with newspaper recruitment advertising, a choice that can often provide the best value. Below is a list of some of the most popular and effective job posting sites that we might suggest for you.

Determining What Sites Will Work Best for You

There are a huge variety of Internet job posting sites – from broadly based sites that cover virtually any field to niche sites that focus on a specialized industry or profession. Many of these can be great options to use in recruiting candidates, but by working with MPA, you can be sure to find the right site or sites to fit your company’s individual needs. And, this is a critical first step, because one of the worst mistakes you can make is signing an Internet recruiting contract with the wrong site or sites. We can also identify which sites you can get posted on for free or a reduced price in conjunction with newspaper recruitment advertising, a choice that can often provide the best value. Below is a list of some of the most popular and effective job posting sites that we might suggest for you.

CareerBuilder.com

One of the largest and oldest Internet job boards, CareerBuilder provides job listings, resume posting, and career advice and resources to job seekers. CareerBuilder populates their site with job postings directly from employers and also has extensive partnerships with many regional newspapers.

Dice.com

If you are looking to recruit workers in the “tech” sector, Dice might be a great option. In addition to being the leading site for tech job seekers, it also lets users upload resumes, get salary information, and even obtain career advice and the latest tech news.

Glassdoor.com

Glassdoor takes a somewhat different approach than many Internet job boards by providing in-depth user-submitted information on companies like ratings of employers, salary reports, descriptions of the interview process and more. As such, it tends to attract job seekers specifically looking for employment at companies with a good reputation among their current and past employees.

Indealist.com

Idealist focuses on jobs within the non-profit sector. It attracts candidates who are looking for a job, internship or volunteer position that serves a larger purpose in the community. Applicants can search for positions by the mission they serve in addition to more traditional criteria.

Indeed.com

Indeed is a perhaps the most popular job site with millions of job listings pulled from other websites, job boards, newspaper classifieds, professional associations, and more. Users can also upload resumes and research salaries, employment trends, and other information on the site.

Jobs.Google.com

Jobs.Google is a job search engine that compiles listings from many different sources, including other job search engines. Job candidates can use this resource by typing a job into their Google search bar as opposed to going to a specific job board. MPA can help you optimize your company’s career website so that your jobs always appear in relevant Google search results.

LinkedIn.com

As the largest professional network on the Internet, LinkedIn is a great place to place jobs, particularly when you want to reach passive job seekers who may not be looking on traditional job boards. LinkedIn offers unique features like enabling users to upload portfolio samples within their profiles that let you get an even better sense of candidates’ skills and talents before you bring them in for an interview.

Monster.com

As one of the first Internet job boards, Monster is still the site of choice for many job seekers. Monster set the standard for Internet job boards by offering users the chance to search and apply for jobs online, post their resumes, peruse company profiles, and get salary comparisons and job hunting tips.

US.Jobs

US.jobs is database of available positions compiled by a partnership of the Direct Employers Association and the National Association of State Workforce Agencies. It includes a Veteran's Job Bank and an easy-to-use schedule of in-person career events around the country.
