Job search service for Caribbean professionals
Amidst seemingly never-ending news about the slow job market and the need for foreign companies to invest in the Trinidad and Tobago economy, one entrepreneur is delivering a dose of optimism and insight to Caribbean job seekers and employers. Subira Willock, Howard University alumnus and project manager at a leading global financial services company has partnered with CSO Research in Austin, Texas, to introduce CaribbeanjobLINK.com, a members-only job search engine and virtual talent acquisition office, designed to streamline online recruitment in the Caribbean market place.
“The biggest challenges facing employers and human resource managers in the Caribbean are the lack of viable on-line job advertising options and the absence of pre-screened, quality candidates from available sites” said Willock. “I developed the concept of CaribbeanjobLINK.com based on my experience in the on-campus recruitment office at Howard and as a recruiting assistant at a software engineering and consulting firm in Arlington, Virginia.”
CaribbeanjobLINK.com brings a customised and personal experience to the online recruiting business to address the fundamental concerns of this underserved portion of the HR market. Employers and HR managers that utilise basic on-line job advertisement services routinely get inundated with hundreds of resumes from unqualified candidates. The sorting and screening process alone occupies numerous man-hours before a candidate is even called in for an interview.
CaribbeanjobLINK.com has found a way to pre-qualify both job seekers and employers, enabling both to realise the benefits of on-line recruitment in a members-only setting. Powered by CSO Research’s Interfase system, this new site streamlines job-seeker and employer registration, resume submissions, document management, placement tracking, job posting and management and resume books. Employers can quickly and easily post jobs, set controls and qualifications and watch quality resumes come in via email alerts.
Most importantly, job-seekers are required to submit a profile of their qualifications which determines which types of jobs they can apply for. This means employers will only receive resumes from candidates that match their listed qualifications. Caribbeanjoblink.com, a trademark of the Corporate Pipeline Group Limited is a privately-held company offering on-line job advertisement and search services to recruiters and job-seekers in the Caribbean market. In addition to its primary member-based site, the company provides a cost-effective, flexible and easy to use platform for employers to connect with candidates actively seeking employment in the Caribbean. The company differentiates itself from other on-line job boards that lack applicant controls by implementing system controls that prevent unqualified candidates from applying for specialised jobs, ensuring all candidates are fully qualified before applications are published to employers.
