OFCCP add-on module now available for Jobbex

On October 7th, 2005 the Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a ruling on regulations that require federal contractors and subcontractors to collect gender, race, and ethnicity information from job applicants. The OFCCP monitors federal contractors to ensure that they provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability and veterans' status.

According to the OFCCP regulations, the length of time records must be kept depends on the size of the company and the contract it holds. For contractors who has fewer than 150 employees or does not have a Government contract of at least $150,000, the minimum record retention period shall be one year. Contractors with more than 150 employees and a contract of $150,000 are required to maintain the records for a period of two years.

The Jobbex Job Board Software OFFCP add-on feature will enable our clients meet the OFCCP requirements by allowing them to maintain all activity associated with candidates and applicants and to generate a comprehensive report containing all the required information outlined in the EEO and OFCCP regulations.

The built in EEO/OFCCP tracking and reporting functionality will enable them to request EEO/OFCCP information from applicants and to proactively assess their compliance.

To obtain a copy of the Federal Compliance Contract Manual (FCCM) from the OFCCP website, http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/regs/compliance/fccm/fccmanul.htm.

Backfill Your Job Board with Jobs

Job boards are increasingly recognizing the value of backfilling their job board results with results from job aggregators and large job boards such as Indeed, SimplyHired, CareerBuilder, and others. The idea is simple. Your job postings appear first, but after that, relevant results are back filled with job postings from the partner you integrate with for the backfill, providing more content for your users. The large job boards and aggregators simply index more jobs than most niche job boards can manually post or even sell, so it makes sense, as a resource to their users to offer as many jobs as possible.

For many job board owners, backfilling jobs from another source helps them achieve their goals of providing content to job seekers and helping their job board stay successful. Although job backfill results may look different, depending on the source, they can each help job board owners populate their new or existing job board quickly and easily. Some backfill arrangements provide revenue streams for the job board owners, with the first few results being pay per click sponsored ads. Others offer revenue streams tied to the number of applicants a job board provides. Others simply make their jobs available and offer no revenues, but the job seeker stays on the job board owner's site throughout the process, even when applying for the job. Whatever your objectives for backfilling jobs to populate your job board, there are many options.

Jobbex job board software, by Avidweb Technologies, Inc., has been providing job backfill integration for job board site owners for many years. Most job board owners are extremely happy with results from backfilling jobs. However, when a job board owner has a very specific niche, such as a very specific location or industry, the number of relevant results indexed by even the job aggregators diminishes. In these cases, strategies for adding keyword, location, and even and/or statements to backfill queries to return the most possible relevant results for your backfill become important. Working with an experienced partner to sort through the revenue stream options available and integrate the results to maximize the number of relevant jobs returned from your backfill can make all the difference in making your backfill successful while adding to your job board's success.

Jobbex introduces Job Wrapping Service to Job Board Owners

Jobbex introduces job wrapping service to help job board owners automatically populate their job boards with job postings from employer’s websites.

Job wrapping is an automated process that scrapes an employer’s website, ATS or other Job Boards then parses and exports the jobs directly to the Job board where these postings will appear. This process does not require any changes to the employer’s website or ATS nor does it require any changes to an existing Job Board database where the jobs are posted to.

Benefits of this service to job board owners include increased job posting content, ability to provide a technical service that employers are looking for, and the ability to generate additional revenues by charging for job wrapping service.

Benefits of automated job wrapping for employers are increased exposure to targeted candidates that are aggregated by niche job boards, hands free publishing, and decreased costs compared to manually posting individual jobs

For a low monthly fee per website scrapped, Jobbex can now wrap jobs from your employer’s websites, ATS or other Job Boards and index them for you within your Job Board’s Database automatically, and without any intervention or changes to your database or your employer’s websites.

Avidweb Technologies, Inc, the developers of Jobbex Job Board Software for over ten years, has helped hundreds of clients launch an advanced and easy-to-use Job Board. Contact us for more information on how to implement job wrapping and start increasing revenues and content on your job board today.
