FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JobsInLogistics.com Becomes the Largest Online Career and Recruiting Site for the Logistics Management Profession
Management Job Listings Outpace Major Career Sites
MIAMI BEACH, FL (January 12, 2001) – With its one-year anniversary in sight, JobsInLogistics.com (www.jobsinlogistics.com) is enjoying the success and recognition that other companies take years to develop. It is the largest recruiting Web site designed specifically for the logistics profession. The site caters to job seekers and employers in the logistics, supply chain, transportation, freight forwarding, materials / inventory management, distribution and warehousing fields. Furthermore, JobsInLogistics.com has become the preferred site for employers and recruiters wishing to access its well-organized database of skilled and experienced logistics candidates.
How It Works
JobsInLogistics.com provides a variety of services for job seekers at no charge, including the ability to post their resumes and search for opportunities online. The company recently launched the highly successful ‘Job Dispatcher,’ a powerful tool for logistics candidates that automatically notifies them of all new positions that meet their customized criteria.
Recruiters and employers are offered two streamlined means of finding qualified candidates through the site’s Job Posting and Resume Search options. Features include the ability to post jobs in over 60 categories within logistics, to fully customize the contact options for each job and to save Resume Search criteria for faster searching.
“Our staff of industry professionals operates as the first line of defense for HR departments and executive recruiters – protecting them from a potential flood of inappropriate resumes,” said Don Firth, founder of JobsInLogistics.com. “Employers are not looking to navigate through thousands of low probability resumes; they are interested in accessing a selective pool of qualified candidates. We pre-screen many of the resumes that we receive to ensure the candidates have the necessary logistics background.” Firth’s sentiments are echoed in a recent national story about online job hunting. Business Week reported that “many savvy job seekers – and even large employers – are eschewing the big online career sites and zeroing in on niche boards that offer more focused listings.”
JobsInLogistics.com also provides companies with personalized customer service. “We are always pleased to assist clients with their job postings to ensure that they will generate the best exposure to the right candidates. Most companies are amazed that we take the time to talk to them and use our industry knowledge to help them,” Firth said. He added that the phone number for JobsInLogistics.com is prominently noted on the “Contact Us” page, clearly relating the company’s interest in hearing from users. “Most Internet sites want to remain impersonal and anonymous, and do not encourage vocal interaction,” he said. “We look forward to hearing from our user base.”
Firth, who has thirty years experience in logistics management and has published two best selling books on logistics, found that no other job site recognized the logistics profession, and once JobsInLogistics.com came on the scene, its services were immediately embraced by employers, recruiters and job seekers.
Employers and Recruiters Are Talking
Industry professionals are turning to JobsInLogistics.com for greater precision when searching for applicants. “We’re looking for a particular class of candidate with specific experience in the logistics industry,” said Gina O’Leary, General Manager, The SearchLogix Group, an Atlanta-based executive recruitment firm. “The problem with the gargantuan job sites is they try to be everything to everybody and tend to get responses from seemingly everyone who can spell logistics. In contrast, our office could not be more pleased with the quality of candidates who are posting resumes on JobsInLogistics.com and with the responses we are receiving to our job postings.”
“JobsInLogistics.com has dramatically improved our ability to locate the best transportation and logistics talent,” said Rob Reich of Schneider National, who shares his frustrations about other well-known online career sites. “In the past, these sites have generated hundreds of unqualified applicants causing an administrative nightmare,” Reich added. “We consistently receive resumes from the type of candidates that we are looking for from our JobsInLogistics.com postings. We recently filled a VP role position from a candidate that contacted us through this site. JobsInLogistics.com is user friendly and very cost effective.”
Valuable Logistics Industry Links
In addition to its Job Posting, Resume Search and Job Seeker services, JobsInLogistics.com features industry association links, and boasts one of the industry’s most comprehensive list of links to universities offering logistics curriculum as well as a list of best selling books on the subject.
