Jobs.post-journal.com launched today to provide area residents looking for jobs more resources while at the same time offering potential employers more ways to find qualified workers.
The Web site features the ability to search current job openings in the local area as well as regional openings in which people also may be interested. The Post-Journal has partnered with other newspapers in the region to create the most locally centered job site available anywhere on the Web. Other newspapers joining The Post-Journal include the Observer in Dunkirk and the Times Observer in Warren. Job seekers have the option of expanding or contracting their search to any distance they wish.
Setting up an account on the site is easy and free to job seekers.
Once a job seeker sets up an account on the site he or she should establish a profile. Doing so will allow users of jobs.post-journal.com to upload resumes and cover letters to the site and apply for jobs immediately with one click. The job site also allows job seekers to sign up for e-mail alerts, which will notify them when new jobs are posted that match their profile. They can also save jobs that interest them and view the jobs to which they have applied over the past 18 months using the ''apply online'' feature.
Profiles of businesses are also available on jobs.post-journal.com. Every time a business has an open position, that job will be listed with their profile.
The wide exposure offered by the regional group of newspapers gives employers access to a huge pool of potential qualified and local employees and offers job seekers a wide range of available job opportunities.
''Jobs.post-journal.com is about creating a richer and more fulfilling experience for our employment advertisers as well as readers,'' said Michael Bird, publisher of The Post-Journal. ''We are combining our powerful print product with a new and exciting online product that will allow job seekers and employers more efficiency in making a crucial connection.''
Jobs.post-journal.com is part of an ongoing effort by The Post-Journal to serve the Chautauqua region.
