JobSquared.com has taken a fresh approach to the market of services for job seekers by turning the focus on networking and relationships rather than a laundry list of jobs – enabling employment seekers to sell themselves more effectively and efficiently.
The company is so confident in its approach that it even provides a “Confidence Guarantee” that job seekers will get hired within six months.
In a release, Benjamin Vivo-Wachter of Park Hudson International, a recruiter with more than 15 years experience in the industry, said that, “JobSquared is poised to be the root of all my hires, it is a service that truly understands the delicate interplay between job seekers and employers.”
He continued, “JobSquared seamlessly integrates the needs of all the parties involved. It is hands down the most efficient, user friendly service available. It was about time somebody created a product like this.”
The company boasts online training – including phone scripts and elevator pitch fields for initiating communications with contacts – which it says teaches job seekers the crucial techniques and tactics necessary to best prepare and sell themselves when networking for a job search, especially in the current ultra-competitive job market where companies receive thousands of resumes in a few hours in response to a single position.
JobSquared, which promotes the personalization of a candidate as a differentiator, says it addresses this with a unique on-the-fly professional resume creation tool, combined with a sophisticated tracking system that ensures that job seekers come across in the best possible light to potential employers.
Integrating everything from personal e-mail, contacts, calendars, tasks and even social networks, the system generates personalized, professional resumes on-the-fly in addition to pulling together jobs from all the major Internet job boards and corporate web sites – organizing everything into an easy to use Web 2.0 interface.
