Over the last few months I have been asked by several employers where our applicants and candidates are from. This is a great question, and the answer is important. Employers need to attract the best candidates, and they know that by extending their reach beyond the immediate area, they will bring in a larger group of qualified applicants…increasing their chances of finding the right fit.
At Masiello Employment Services we use a large array of recruiting and sourcing methods, but our most visible way of attracting candidates is through our web based job board. The Masiello Employment Services Candidate Portal has had over 80,000 visits from job seekers in 2011. By using our advanced applicant tracking system, we are able to post job openings that not only display on our website, but they are syndicated to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and to well over 10,000 job boards nationwide. Our jobs are also shown on Indeed.com and SimplyHired.com.
The results of our efforts have paid off in big ways for our clients. Below are screenshots showing where the majority of our candidates and applicants are from.
- Massachusetts – 28,000 visits – 35% of our visits are from Massachusetts
- New Hampshire – 26,000 visits – 33% of our visits are from New Hampshire
- Vermont – 12,000 visits – 15% of our visits are from Vermont
- Connecticut – 4,000 visits – 5% of our visits are from Connecticut
- New England – 90% of our 80,000 visits are from job seekers in New England
You no doubt noticed that our job seekers come from all over New England. This is a source of pride for our employees because they work hard to match the best candidates with our clients. Attracting this number of job seekers ensures that we are serving our clients and candidates to the full.
