Largest e-media reach in the industry supports hundreds of healthcare sourcing destinations
NEW YORK CITY, NY— JUNE 23, 2011 — SmartPost, the innovative online job posting and sourcing product from Bernard Hodes Group, further extends its premiere position in jobs distribution and optimization by continuing to focus its e-media library expansion on markets where talent needs remain strong.
The demand for healthcare recruiting has stayed relatively consistent during this economic downturn while other industries have fallen flat. However, many healthcare organizations still struggle to find the “right” talent and experience to fill key openings. With so many individuals still unemployed, healthcare employers are looking for ways to maximize any job advertising they do in the most succinct way so not to inundate their recruiters with unqualified applicants—and who have the desired healthcare skillsets they need for mission critical job vacancies.
In support of growing client talent needs, SmartPost has focused its e-media reach and expansion in core industry verticals, healthcare being a top priority. Over the last several months, SmartPost has added numerous healthcare-related sourcing channels to better serve its growing client base in this marketplace. New sites center on a multitude of healthcare practices including nursing, allied services, biomedical and physician recruitment to those more targeted to regional specificity. Some recent additions include HireHealth.net, SmartBrief-AdvaMed, Denver Nursing Star, NurseTogether and Hospital Dream Jobs.
“Our healthcare clients still have aggressive hiring needs, but they too have been impacted by tightening recruitment budgets, requiring job posting activity to be clearly measured for ROI,” said Carmen Doherty, VP, senior director of SmartPost. “With our SmartPost metrics and benchmarks they are able to track which sites are producing the best candidates and conversions as well as any duplicate cross-over viewership to better streamline their sourcing strategies and spend.”
One site in particular, Hospital Dream Jobs, an online career resource for healthcare professionals, was recently listed on Health Nation’s list of “Top 40 Forums and Message Boards for Nurse Practitioners.” This type of recognition illustrates how healthcare professionals tap into industry-related resources to not only find jobs, but to also stay connected within their professional communities—many of which are sourcing channels that recruiters may not ever be aware of if not for the media recommendations engine and e-media depth inside SmartPost. Job seekers have also recently selected Hospital Dream Jobs as a 2011 WEDDLE’s User’s Choice Award Winner, an award given to the top employment websites.
As part of the SmartPost service offerings, healthcare clients can also tap into SmartPost’s expertise to receive:
• Best-practice sourcing recommendations
• Strategies on how to leverage Web 2.0 tools and social networking
• Expert media advice and contract negotiation skills
• Industry knowledge and thought leadership
