JobJunction serves a variety of businesses and candidates
throughout the U.S.A. We assist our clients in finding the best talent for Executive
Management teams, designers, manufacturing personnel, Engineering and
teams. Positions we are currently recruiting for may be viewed from the menu
selection above. However, even if you don't see the job of your dreams posted,
be sure to let us know
about your career goals by registering with our "Personnel File." We store
your information in our own database and when a position becomes available that looks like
a possible good match, we contact you and discuss it with you. We do not sell your
information or distribute it to employers or other businesses, and employers do not have
access to our database.
FAQ: Why should candidates and
employers use your service when there are services like Monster.com?
From the employers perspective, our services have a
broader appeal to mid-size and smaller companies. Annual subscription fees
charged by on-line resume databases can be in the tens of thousands of
dollars. In addition, job boards such as Monster.com have millions of resumes on file.
A job posting very often
buries an employer in resumes from all over the world that are a poor match for the position.
Furthermore, if a good candidate is identified through resume search, the
company finds itself in competition with several other companies for the
same candidate. Therefore, many employers feel the cost of
the subscription fees and the time spent handling
thousands of job post responses are not worth the poor results.
From the employee perspective, two issues are most
critical - 1) Exposure to the right hiring Managers and 2) keeping their
personal information private- inaccessible to their current employer or to
other third parties.
FAQ: Why is privacy an issue?
Pam Dixon, an investigative reporter and research fellow at the Privacy
Foundation and author of many reports and books, including Job
Searching Online for Dummies, warns that people who use the major
job boards should know that those who get access to resumes may also include
people bent on identity theft and fraud. "Essentially, what you're doing is
you're giving them data for free and they're making money from it," she
says. "Some of this changes when you go to the smaller niche sites. There
are some excellent sites out there."
CorporateWeb sites often have "private label"
arrangements with companies such as Monsters. Candidates visiting a
company's web site may think they are submitting their resume directly to
that employer without knowing that the website is actually managed and
controlled by Monster. Resumes submitted through this arrangement are
captured by Monster and made available to anyone willing to pay the
subscription fees. The loss of control
over who has access to your information can have undesirable consequences.
It is not uncommon for employers to discover their employee's resume in an
on-line database. Employees have reported that employers cancelled a
pending promotions or terminated the employee after discovering the
employee's resume on the internet.
Additionally, online resume databanks like Monster sell your contact information
to multi-level marketers or companies hawking
products or services to the newly unemployed. In all fairness to
Monster, they have no ability to control who has access to your resume.
At JobJunction, we do have that ability. Your privacy is imperative to us.
