Lantana, FL − October 7, 2008. HireMeNow.com, LLC,
an online temporary employment marketplace and pioneer in multimedia recruiting, today unveiled the AudioIntro, a new service for job seekers and hiring managers that incorporates many of the benefits of a video resume without the video itself.
The AudioIntro is the compilation of an audio recording and a still photograph of a job seeker (or a standard silhouette). It is a free service offered to all HireMeNow.com job candidates and can be used to help obtain a job with a HireMeNow.com client company, or any employer who receives a password protected link to view that candidate's profile.
Allen Bornstein, president of HireMeNow.com, said, "We understand that not everyone will be comfortable creating a video resume, or as we call it, a VINTRO or video introduction. The AudioIntro mimics what a VINTRO does, while eliminating some of the main barriers associated with creating a VINTRO, namely camera shyness and being uncomfortable with the technology behind video cameras and video files."
"The AudioIntro, like the VINTRO, should be a maximum duration of one minute and the content should get across to the hiring manager what makes a person stand out over and above all the other candidates. The medium reveals the job seeker's enthusiasm, energy and attitude − all important attributes in the hiring decision. We feel that when a written resume or profile is combined with our AudioIntro, the hiring manager has enough information to reduce a lot of the traditional work, time and cost involved in the recruiting process. Of course, posting or viewing an AudioIntro is free to HireMeNow.com job candidates and hiring companies."
HireMeNow.com (www.HireMeNow.com) is the new, multimedia model for recruiting in the 21st century. It is an innovative combination of a self-service online temporary staffing firm and a professional and secure place for job candidates to post personal profiles, including VINTROs™, or video resumes, and AudioIntros. At HireMeNow.com, companies seeking temporary help connect directly with workers seeking temporary or contract assignments. Unlike typical job boards, HireMeNow.com fulfills the traditional role of an employment agency, placing the temporary workers on its payroll, and handling all taxes and insurance. Clients do not have to pay to post jobs; they only pay for hours actually worked by the candidates they find on HireMeNow.com. HireMeNow.com believes it can bring the temporary staffing industry completely online, in a model that replicates the success of online travel booking − hiring companies can simply plug in their candidate criteria, execute a simple search, find the temporary or contract worker that fits their job posting and hire them − quickly, easily and efficiently.
