Medical Device niche job board takes on Monster
October 6, 2004
...back to list

Scotssdale, Ariz. -- MedDeviceJobs.com recently launched a niche job board in reaction to the premise that too many medical device HR professionals are searching in muddied waters and wasting time with larger job boards. MedDeviceJobs.com is the first secure niche job board of this size designed exclusively with the medical device company and candidate in mind.

The medical device industry is a highly specialized field. The Chief Technical Officer of MedDeviceJobs.com, Jeff Griggs, compared using a larger job board to fulfill your staffing needs to hiring a "more expensive general practitioner to perform open-heart surgery rather than a specialist."

"Statistics show the odds of success in finding the right candidate on larger job boards are slim,” says Griggs. “There are more than 5 million resumes on the CareerBuilder system alone competing for about 300,000 posted jobs. And Monster is even more of a risk with almost 26 million active resumes and 800,000 active jobs."

In today's job market, niche job boards are becoming increasingly popular. Research indicates that employers have some major complaints with larger job boards such as Monster and CareerBuilder. Many employers find that they have to search through thousands of unqualified resumes to find competent candidates. In addition to this, employers are flooded with calls from recruiters. By design MedDeviceJobs.com makes it easier for employers to find qualified candidates and does not allow recruiters to search resumes.

Another feature that adds value to using MedDeviceJobs.com is their web spider software. Many high quality candidates passively look for work by posting their resumes on homepages that are frequently overlooked by search engines and other job boards. MedDeviceJobs.com has engineered its own web spider software that allows employers to find these unnoticed candidates.
