You know a product is powerful when it’s hard to imagine performing without it. How many recruiting “solutions” have you used that left you wondering what work life was like before using it? For me, Jobs2Web is that product.
Just over a year ago, I attended my first Jobs2Web user conference in Minneapolis. At that point, we had yet to implement the product. My excitement was very much so based on the feedback of the many clients I encountered and the possibilities seemed endless. If they could do it, surely we could.
In November of 2010, I went through the implementation process and with the help of their amazing team, brought the product online on December 2nd. Yes, I remember the date.
Over the course of the following six months, we’ve seen some outstanding performance. Traffic has more than doubled and we can finally make decisions based on objective data – which sources actually perform. What a breath of fresh air 😉
Last month, I attended my second user conference and Jobs2Web continues to knock my socks off.
From great speakers like Michael Marlatt, Lou Adler and the Jobs2Web founders to a variety of informative break out sessions, the conference was packed with knowledge and collaboration. If I can count on one thing from the Collaborate user conference, it’s to learn something new from companies that are pushing the envelope.
So, as you may have guessed, I’m a Jobs2Web fanboy. But, I have good reason.
Pointless spend is down and effective spend is on the rise. The product is pushing quality candidates from organic sources and our talent community is growing very quickly. Recruiters have the ability to be nimble with the community and, as a new feature, they can even be
notified when a targeted candidate comes through the process.
Since launching, I’ve been able to test theories with Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Adwords and other non-traditional advertising routes. The best part… I know which ones work. What a relief 😉
So, how does a great product keep innovating? They listen to their clients.
Jobs2Web continues to create new and innovative ways to leverage the Internet for recruiting. With some of the largest corporations in the world now on board, the wealth of metrics and source effectiveness information is overwhelming. In addition, they work with their clients to create custom solutions. For me, that will come in the form of sharing dynamic content with job seekers.
Waiting for effectiveness metrics from sales people seems like a distant memory. Jobs2Web has and seems equipped to continue impacting the standards that vendors are held to and it’s a really great shift for all of us.
Keep on truckin’ Jobs2Webbers!
