Job seekers now have a powerful new job search technology available to help showcase their true skills during the job search process. Up until now, employers have run resume keyword searches only to find themselves having to manually read through hundreds of resumes to find qualified candidates. SkillSniper has solved resume keyword search issues by focusing directly at the job skill level. This allows employers to quickly connect with the best qualified job seekers in minutes. After only three months of operation, thousands of job seekers have brought their best job skills to SkillSniper.com from every U.S. state and 58 other countries. "We created a way to help job seekers and employers connect faster than ever before by targeting actual job skills. It is exciting to see how rapidly our new skill-based job search technology is spreading," says Gary Hicks, founder and CEO of SkillSniper.com.
SkillSniper.com is a unique employment website that introduces a brand new approach to job hunting. Instead of focusing on resumes like existing job sites, SkillSniper dives down further to target actual job skills, certifications, software experience, state issued licenses and many other job qualifications. A major benefit for job seekers is the ability to assign years of experience and a skill level to every skill. All criteria can be quickly searched by employers and recruiters at a local, national, or global level.
Imagine a specialized employer looking for a Web Developer with over ten years experience, including over five years using Adobe Dreamweaver software. To highlight the power of cross-industry skill matching, this health care web development candidate also needs to have supervised a nursing staff for over two years and have been a Registered Nurse in New York. Finally, they must live within 50 miles of New York City and be available to work within the next three weeks. What was impossible with a resume keyword search can now be executed in a matter of minutes.
SkillSniper is free for job seekers to use. Currently employed job seekers that are looking for a better job opportunity can turn on a job seeker privacy option and personally approve all businesses that wish to look at their contact information. For employers and recruiters, it is the perfect place to start every candidate search. Unprecedented skill-level candidate searches can be executed without incurring any fees. That means no more paying large up-front fees without guarantees. There is no need for employers to settle for unqualified candidates when it is easy to search for the exact candidates they wish to interview. Due to massive time and money savings, SkillSniper is positioned to become the first place where businesses and recruiters start their candidate search. This is great news for job seekers with great job skills. It also provides more hope for talented unemployed job seekers that are not being found in the large online candidate pool.
