TO LEVERAGE THE POWER OF TARGETED, NICHE RECRUITING
July 17, 2009 – Hospital Executive Jobs, a leader in director and c-level search advertising solutions, announced today the launch of an “introductory” promotion to give Healthcare Executive Search Recruiters free access to post an unlimited number of healthcare executive job postings on their niche recruitment website www.HospitalExecutiveJobs.com as well as an opportunity to be featured in their corresponding HealthcareExecutive.us groups on several major social media websites including Linkedin.com, Twitter.com, Facebook.com, and many others. In an effort to introduce Healthcare Executive Search Recruiters to highly effective, targeted exposure for their available healthcare executive jobs, the company will continue the promotion through the remainder of 2009.
Also effective July 15th, Hospital Executive Jobs announced that job postings and access to resumes on the site will be available exclusively to Executive Search Firms. Healthcare Executives who visit the site are able to search job postings without registering, however many executives have opted to register and post their resumes on the site since their information will only be seen by the recruiters and job postings that they select.
“As a executive job website focused on director and c-level executive positions in the healthcare industry, we believe it is vital to do our part to provide beneficial, value-added advertising avenues that increase awareness of job opportunities; particularly in this challenging economy,” said Laurie DesAutels, Vice President of Marketing with Hospital Executive Jobs. “Specialized recruitment advertising solutions are more necessary than ever, and will help both employers and job-seekers succeed in 2009.”
In an effort to help more healthcare executive search firms to take advantage of their posting service, Hospital Executive Jobs will waive both the single and unlimited posting fee for all direct hire listings between now and the end of the year.
Hospital Executive Jobs is also offering executive search firms who specialize in working in the healthcare discipline will be eligible for a free company listing on their Employer/Agencies directory page, in addition to a variety of cost-effective, job posting pricing plans with single job postings starting at $99 per month. Because the website is highly trafficked and ranked in the top 10 ranked sites on major search engines including Google, Bing, and Yahoo for the keyword “hospital executive jobs”, listing on the site provides a unique opportunity for companies to directly connect with highly-specialized job-seekers.
Executives searching for jobs can continue to post their resumes for free on the site where they are viewed by employers and other decision-makers within the industry who have posted hospital executive jobs on the website. Through its sister sites, www.recruithospitalexecutives.com and www.healthcareexecutive.us, they also provide complimentary professional email addresses, updated industry news, and a regularly published newsletter to help job-seekers achieve their career goals.
Hospital Executive Jobs has also recently started to develop website solutions for mobile as well with its new mobile web address, www.hospitalexecutivejobs.mobi. Work has already begun in adding various connectivity and functionality similar to the .com address. More information will be forthcoming on these developments.

ting a month. (I think) or maybe one free posting. No candidate access just a posting. Ok, we all know that recruiters will do anything that's free. So what?
Here's the "so what". You hated the commercial, you thought it was disgusting, you don't like the whole Ladders shell game or the fact that they charge both the job seeker and the employer or recruiter, you wouldn't pay to be a part of it, you don't like it because they double dip and or charge job seekers, you wouldn't recommend them to a candidate because they misrepresent that they only have 100K jobs and candidates, you know that the jobs they have on the site are available to view for free on company pages, Indeed, Monster, Career Builder, Simply Hired and for God's sake even Craig's List. In the past you posted a job only to have it remain on their site for years after it was filled so you got to explain that it had been filled in 2007 to a candidate who applied in 2010. But what the hell, it's a free posting. You might even get a candidate or two.
Consider this. You use the free posting. The Ladders can now claim you as a customer so you just endorsed their service. Your name and your company name are now associated with their site. They have your website /email/ name ,to be added to their job scraping spider. You have just tacitly given them carte blance to pull every job off your site to flop on their job board which they can now justify because if you put one on there you became their customer and one of the ,"oh, so many recruiters or employers" whom they represent. So when a job seeker calls you about a job you didn't post you can spend your time explaining that you didn't post it, it's not 100K and it was filled a month ago or longer. You don't really use the Ladders, you just used one free posting. Is it worth adding your personal/company endorsement to a service you don't like for one free posting? I don't think so. I have worked hard to develop my reputation. I am not about to muddy it for the price of one free posting on a site i hate and think is a scam or associate my name or business with people crawling around rubbing themselves on desks.
One other caveat that crossed my pea shaped brain this morning. Recruiters are reporting that when they call The Ladders to find out exactly what the "Passport" really is they are getting a bunch of double talk or as Rebecca Sargent put it "A customer service mess". You will be told to go to the web site where it is explained. Great, you go to the web site. Ping their web site just got a hit. So now the web site hits go up because that is what they want. It validates that the commercial was a blazing success, just look at the increase in web site hits.
If one free posting is worth it to you, or you like the Ladders by all means use the free posting, endorse them, link your name/company to them. Not this kid. I won't endorse anything for a gimme or for money that i don't like or think is a scam. That's just my opinion. I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night. All of us can be bought i suppose but some of us are more expensive than others.…
