Job Seeking Sites – The CareerONE Story
The CareerOne Story
CareerOne is ranked number four across Australia for site visits. CareerOne was established in 1999. It is a joint venture company between Australia’s biggest publisher News Corp Australia and the global employment platform Monster Worldwide.
This website offers visitors a unique job-hunting experience and innovative corporate solutions for candidate sourcing, talent management, and employer branding. It is an extremely comprehensive website that goes beyond providing job adverts. It also offers advice for CV and resume writing. Users are also able to browse through career advice and online courses.
Their areas of speciality now run to recruitment advertising, resume database, behavioural targeted display advertising, re-marketing display advertising, international recruitment, virtual environments, virtual fairs, and talent management technology.
As a general resource to enable job seekers to climb up the career ladder, it is one of the country’s market leaders.
How It Works
Like many job sites that have a significant number of positions available, there are numerous methods of drilling down to the position that interests you. From simple keyword searches down through role positions, industry type, location, salary range, and date posted you can then get down to business. Each job is then flagged by its job and contract type (i.e. permanent, full time, etc.), with a clear, concise entry highlighting the employer, the role, the requirements, the rewards and how to apply.
Whilst this is common, CareerOne lays out this essential information in a clear, informative way that gives job seekers a quick overview without having to delve too deeply into a position that may not be suitable.
CareerOne also offers a free resume evaluation to ensure your current document is at its peak capability. With this service, you get your resume evaluated by a professional resume expert, and you will receive specific suggestions for improvement within three working days.
Diversification is the Key
CareerOne realised that in a crowded job seeking market, add-ons to its offering are essential to staying relevant. CareerOne Education gives you access to courses through a range of leading education providers. Whether you are looking to kick-start your career, up-skill for a promotion, or chase your passion, a course found on CareerOne Education can help get you there. This section of their site helps you to find the right course and enquire to make the next big step. As with their job advertisements, this section allows you to search by various criteria including industry type, location, study mode, course type, and provider.
They also offer loan option advice from VET student loans, Fee-Help – the Commonwealth Government loan scheme that offers assistance to eligible students studying higher education qualifications by enabling them to take out a loan through the Commonwealth Government to pay for all or part of their tuition fees, and other payment options such as up-front payments.
CareerOne also maintains an up-to-date blog with pertinent articles, news, op-ed pieces, and free resource links to such subjects as psychometric test samples, cover letter advice and legal information, all to give you the best suggestions and guidance to help you along your career path.
CareerOne one has maintained its high ranking in job seeking sites by remaining, vital, engaging, diversifying and adding to its services and listening to its customers. It is a site that certainly is not coasting on its reputation and strives to be a truly appealing, useful and successful resource for Australian jobseekers.
