With more than 430,000 live available job listings and the facility for candidates to create optimised online resumes in seconds, LoveMondays is rapidly becoming a recruitment website to watch.
Its unique integrated job matching software pulls together candidates’ skills and aspirations to suggest suitable available job opportunities. This week, LoveMondays.com has also launched a new service which can automatically convert paper based CVs into an online resume, taking less than a minute to create.
After hearing numerous post-graduate stories from university students who could not find work despite being qualified, LoveMondays.com was born out of the desire to introduce qualified candidates to employers who are looking for specific skills. Rather than sending off countless resumes for positions which only fit some of the jobseeker’s requirements, LoveMondays.com enables jobseekers to create an online profile with the option to include a video resume and/or upload work examples, an emerging trend which is proving particularly popular with post-graduates and recruiters. This then finds positions which are most suited to that particular candidate.
“The best candidate is not always the individual with the most experience” says Simon Thompson, Director of LoveMondays.com. “It’s about creating that first impression to stand out from the crowd and providing a professional platform in which to get a foot through the door. Those taking advantage of the latest tools available to help in their job search are the ones making the greatest impact.” he adds.
As a free service for both job seekers and recruiters, with no restrictions to pay to view candidate profiles like other portals and no obligation to create an account to view jobs, LoveMondays is on a mission to liberate the recruitment process. By giving candidates and employers more freedom to promote themselves and a greater understanding of each other’s qualities through a transparent and interactive application process, it aims to help both parties make more informed decisions.
