Recruiting Solution Connecting Qualified Hospitality Management
Candidates with Quality Employers
LAUNCH LIVE JANUARY 15, 2005
(DENVER, CO) – January 10, 2005 – Problem: The hospitality industry is one of the largest in the world—a $480 billion industry with a staggering 25 percent average annual turnover rate at the management level. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by 2008, the number of hospitality industry jobs in the nation will increase by nearly two million, which equates to 150,000 new management level positions alone. What is the recruiting solution in the industry to fill the growing need to link qualified management professionals with quality hospitality management career opportunities? Solution: Introducing GreatHotelCareers.com, the premier online hospitality management recruiting solution that connects qualified hospitality management career seekers with quality employers.
Born from a collective industry sentiment that online recruiting options for the hospitality industry had become far too diverse to provide qualified, quality, management level candidates, the GreatHotelCareers.com team was formed to create a recruiting solution to share with the industry to alleviate the flood of resumes and immense expenses that overwhelm hospitality industry human resource departments. GreatHotelCareers.com is that focused solution, linking qualified, management level hospitality industry professionals with quality hospitality management positions at a fraction of the price of online competitors, while also using pre-qualifying criteria from both career seekers and employers to ensure a quality match on both ends. GreatHotelCareers.com targets candidates and posts management positions in the areas of hotel operations, sales and marketing, food and beverage, finance and accounting, human resources, development, purchasing and procurement and corporate level executives. GreatHotelCareers.com will be headed up by a team of industry experts and will be led by President Robert McAllister.
“Our team shepherded this concept out of our direct experiences with expensive recruiting options that were furnishing mountains of resumes without resulting in qualified candidates,” said Jennifer Macias, account manager and spokesperson for GreatHotelCareers.com. “GreatHotelCareers.com is cutting the red tape and is dedicated to its niche of bringing experienced, qualified candidates together with employers that offer competitive benefits and performance-based growth opportunities with an affordable, focused and user friendly online service. GreatHotelCareers.com is the place for employers to link with qualified hospitality professionals who are looking for a career, not just a job.”
GreatHotelCareers.com Benefits the Employer
GreatHotelCareers.com targets candidates through strategic direct marketing efforts directed at the hospitality industry’s best resources—hospitality colleges, trade publications and trade shows—in order to build a database of skilled and career-minded candidates. During the resume submitting process, applicants are asked pre-qualifying questions detailing their hospitality experience, including years and level of management experience, what hotels they have worked for and where those hotels were located, in order to provide employers with crucial information up front. This allows employers to quickly determine which candidates best fit their particular management staffing needs. Clients may choose their search criteria and options for transmittal of resumes and form of contact with potential applicants based on the organization’s preference.
In addition, GreatHotelCareers.com offers employers the ability to “mine” resumes—a passive resume search using key words—and conduct “out-of-office” searches, whereby the resume database uses key words to identify new resumes from GreatHotelCareers.com that fit the employer’s specific criteria. GreatHotelCareers.com features real-time statistics for each career posting so employers can see when and how often their career posting has been viewed as well as security features to keep their company’s identity confidential, if desired. Clients posting positions may also post logos for easy identification as well as an optional detailed company profile.
GreatHotelCareers.com offers competitive rates for its partners, with a variety of pricing options to choose from to suit each business’ needs. Introductory prices range from a single posting for $100, as compared to competitor average rates of $300 for a single posting. GreatHotelCareers.com will also offer packages including the Presidential Suite package that features unlimited resume database and out-of-office searches, a one-year employer profile page and three months as a Platinum Partner, providing homepage exposure to their company profile and career postings.
