|Toronto, Ontario - Jan. 11, 1999 - David Curry,
President and Director of Hospitality Careers Online, Inc. of Toronto,
leads a North American Investment group of hospitality professionals with
many years of industry experience with a site that caters specifically
to the global hospitality industry. Mr. Curry states that "what is unique
about this website is that unlike most of the large employment sites on
the net, hcareers.com will cater only to one industry! Using state-of-the-art
Oracle database technology, we will actively attract professionals from
the hotel, restaurant, cruise, club and spa sectors worldwide." Curry further
noted that "excitement has been building as several major companies like
Interstate Hotels, Hooters, and Tim Hortons have already committed to the
website, and have been eagerly anticipating the ability to attract top
quality professionals online in this hyper-competitive job market."
"We are confident that the time has come for a hospitality-specific recruitment site," notes Hospitality Careers Online Director Eden Slegr. "Unlike many other industries, the hospitality business has no real borders, and professionals with expertise are in high demand both in North America and internationally. Until now, advertising in traditional media to find the right executives, general managers, top chefs, and other key players has been extraordinarily costly and time-consuming. Hcareers.com is the first website to specifically address the needs of this diverse industry with the same sophistication of the mega employment sites on the internet, but with more comprehensive targeting abilities for hospitality positions worldwide!"
Slegr further noted that "hcareers.com will vastly improve the ability of employers to reach out and market their opportunities to job seekers directly online. Job seekers will also be directed to reply online to employers. This site offers a unique virtual employer mailbox system for employers to screen responses in an orderly and efficient manners, resolving the difficulties encountered by Human Resources departments frustrated with floods of email from poorly qualified applicants.
Months of design, planning and programming have resulted in a site that is sophisticated, yet simple to use. Unique "agent" features such as "Job Detective" for the job seeker, and "Resume Detective" for employers, permit users to search for jobs or resumes while the user is off-line! "We addressed many other issues as well, including local recruiting," according to Curry, "with more regional solutions already programmed for the United Kingdom, Canada, U.S. and Australia. This site has been painstakingly designed by hospitality professionals. We intend to quickly become the pre-eminent portal for hospitality professionals anywhere in the world. We have set our sights to be not only the first, but the best - and we aim to deliver the highest standards in this new venture."
