For job seekers, there is really only one simple step; they sign-in and apply for a job in minutes via the Web or using text messaging, through a simple, ad-free mobile platform. This is done regardless of whether the job was posted on a job board, Craigslist, Facebook, an online classified ad, seen in a printed flyer, or any other location.
Jobaline's bilingual approach and multi-digital platform process opens doors for hourly workers, who are widely under-served by existing hiring solutions. "There is a critical 'digital divide' that we are addressing with Jobaline," Salazar said. "Many candidates for hourly jobs lack access to desktop computers or smartphones, making the current job search technologies unavailable to them. When businesses embrace mobile recruiting solutions, they both gain access to a greater talent pool, and play a powerful role in bridging the digital divide."
A Solution for Small and Large Businesses
Small employers can use Jobaline to replace manual processes and time-intensive advertising approaches to recruitment. Large employers can use the platform to supplement existing enterprise recruiting systems by extending their recruitment process into the mobile realm, and integrating their own unique pre-screening criteria that is enabled within the Jobaline platform.
"Most people today use mobile devices as their primary means to access the Internet, yet only 13 percent of employers have a mobile-friendly recruiting solution. We want to be sure we are able to reach out to the best workers, whether they use smart or not-so-smart phones, tablets, or desktop computers. With Jobaline, we can gain rapid access to a bigger and higher quality pool of applicants, while reducing the internal costs associated with pre-screening," said Bill Shaughnessy, president and COO of eHealth.
While Jobaline currently focuses on the greater Miami and Seattle areas, the company has committed to an aggressive plan for roll-out nationally in coming months, based on demand from both employers and workers.
