among the most exciting things you ever read.
PASADENA, Calif.—(Business Wire)—Harrison Barnes, the CEO of EmploymentCrossing.com, a website that consolidates jobs on its site from employer websites and other job boards, says there is not a crisis in the employment market as reported by the Department of Labor on Friday. Instead, Barnes believes jobs are getting harder to find because they are moving so rapidly away from local newspapers to the web—to so many websites that job seekers can no longer find the jobs that are available.What I Discovered in 10+ Years of Researching the Design Job Market and Getting Tens of Thousands of People Jobs.
"The jobs are disbursed among too many websites," says Barnes. "It used to be you could pick up one or maybe two local newspapers when looking for a job. Now you need access to the web and most job seekers are visiting only a few sites when searching for a job. We visit over 10,000 websites a day to find jobs for our site. There are jobs out there for everyone. Not surprisingly, the job losses being reported by the Labor Department are also largely confined to professions like manufacturing where people do not have access to the web."
According to Barnes, people looking for a job simply cannot find the openings out there. With over 10,000 job sites and even more employer career pages, Barnes believes that the jobs out there are distributed to so many sites that it is getting harder for people to find jobs.
Barnes believes that his EmploymentCrossing.com site is "a good first step" towards solving this problem because it consolidates every job it can find. In addition, EmploymentCrossing.com is research company. While it does charge employers to post jobs, it balances out these paid listings by continually researching jobs from every other source it can find. It also remains an unbiased source of listings because it clearly shows you which listings are paid.
"A main part of EmploymentCrossing's business model is to consolidate every single job on our site. I view the number of Internet sites out there with jobs on them as a crisis and job seekers should too," says Barnes.
Very few people know about the jobs that are on employer websites and small job boards and other "out of the way" locations. Because so few people know about these jobs they typically receive few if any applications. (Contrast this with jobs that appear on big sites like Monster, CareerBuilder, HotJobs and so forth.) Due to the jobs on DesigningCrossing receiving fewer applications, you are likely to receive far more interviews and offers. Additionally, DesigningCrossing limits access to the design jobs on its site to people who are DesigningCrossing members and this keeps the applications to jobs on our site down even more.DesigningCrossing is Not Perfect and Does Have Some Limitations.
Only DesigningCrossing consolidates every job it can find in the domain and puts all of the job listings it locates in one place.
