| FEDERAL WAY, WA (Apr. 28, 1999) -- Hospitality Online
(www.hospitalityonline.com), the leading Internet recruiting site for hospitality
industry employers, today announced the addition of a technical requirements
database, which includes specific job requirements for over 350 hospitality
management positions. This new feature is available immediately to members
at no additional charge.
The enhancements to the online "ad builder" enable employers to quickly post job openings by choosing from a list of job titles. The user is then presented with a job listing form containing technical requirements specific to the position they are advertising. The client checks only the requirements they need, adds their own additional requirements, and the ad layout is created automatically.
Many job boards on the Internet offer employers online forms to post their ads, but Hospitality Online is the first to give the client a comprehensive ad builder. Hospitality Online provides much more detail with each ad, unlike the "newspaper-style" ads appearing on most other sites. The ad builder includes sections for the scope of the position, management and technical requirements, compensation package, benefits, and a detailed profile of the company or property. Using the online ad builder, employers can post jobs in a few minutes. Multiple job listings are even quicker using the "copy" or "renew" functions.
More about Hospitality Online
Started in June 1998, Hospitality Online was developed in direct response to a survey of over 2,000 top-ranked candidates in the hospitality industry. "We identified areas of importance to candidates, then worded employer requirements around those areas" explains Tom Ferree, President of Ferree & Associates, Inc., a 21 year old executive search and advertising company known for innovative solutions to employment problems. "The key to good ad response is to assure that the needs of both employers and candidates are met."
In addition, Mr. Ferree describes the technological innovations that make Hospitality Online unique. "The software system we developed is the most advanced in the hospitality industry. It provides unmatched detail plus job specific technical requirements. The Internet allows us to deliver much more than a typical newspaper ad, at a greatly reduced cost."
Hospitality Online offers employers free web pages for their hotels, free standing restaurants and clubs. These detailed profiles, complete with photos, company logos and maps, are designed to attract job candidates. Easy to use online forms let employers post their job openings in minutes using only a web browser. Membership and employer profiles are free and new members can advertise jobs free for their first 30 days.
Currently over 140 corporations and over 1,500 hotel, restaurant and club properties are profiled in the online Directory of Employers. This makes Hospitality Online the largest hospitality employment site on the Internet.
