Increasing numbers of automotive job seekers are opting to apply directly to jobs posted on the website career centers of automotive businesses rather than job boards and print ads according to Tony Radoci, president of Automotive Recruitment Systems, LLC, an online recruitment solutions consulting firm focused on the automotive world and operator of the recently launched AutomotiveEmployers.com
“At the same time, automotive employers are excited by this development as they become increasingly aware that their company’s website should be their most effective recruitment tool,” added Radoci.
As a majority of automotive businesses now have websites, they are realizing the importance of building their “employment brand” online and promoting their company as a desirable place to work. To successfully compete for talent, businesses must provide a quality job seeking and application experience for website visitors. This is particularly true for automotive job seekers finding employers through a unique resource like AutomotiveEmployers.com, which provides free searchable listings linking directly to the employer’s career center or jobs page.
These developments apply to businesses of all sizes in every segment of the automotive industry, including OEM’s, dealerships, suppliers, parts retailers, collision and service repair shops, business services, the aftermarket, and everything in between. “As a participant in and, an observer of, the evolution of the online recruitment space since 1997, I’ve spoken with hundreds of human resource executives, recruiters, hiring managers, and automotive business owners, all expressing a preference to have job seekers apply directly to jobs posted on their own websites,” said Radoci. “Conversely, automotive job seekers have voiced a sense of frustration in applying through “monstrous” job boards with no confidence their resume gets to the recruiters and hiring managers that matter.”
“While the automotive industry is always in a state of change, one thing remains constant – the need to attract and retain talent,” stated Radoci. “Even though many automotive employers prefer to hire candidates with automotive experience, they also realize the need to attract skilled workers and managers from other industries as the competition for talent grows globally. AutomotiveEmployers.com launches with a mission to lead in this crucial industry-wide initiative and will continue to evolve as a much needed automotive career resources portal with several exciting features and partnerships planned for the near future.”
