Recruitment-Industry Veteran Joins JobOn As EVP of Sales
Pete Steiner Led Sales Teams at Monster.com and Dice.com
ANNAPOLIS, Md., September 25, 2012 - JobOn, the site that matches employers with hourly workers using video enabled job application technology, has added Pete Steiner as executive vice president of sales to expand the company’s resources focused on capturing retail, hospitality and restaurant customers.
Steiner's experience includes his tenure at Monster.com, the online career and recruitment resource where he was the founding senior vice president of sales and grew annual revenue from $300,000 to $40 million in three years by building an industry-leading sales organization. He also restructured the inside and field sales teams at technology-focused job board Dice.com.
""Many organizations are stuck in a recruiting 2.0 world where they've taken their manual processes online, or worse, they still use paper applications," says Steiner. "JobOn is essentially a perpetual online job fair where managers scan pre-recorded candidate videos as a qualifier for a formal face-to-face interview. Our clients are telling us the time savings are incredible.""
With a free JobOn account, job seekers record video answers to common interview questions via webcam and thus get to showcase enthusiasm and other qualities that help them stand out. Then they click to submit their video profiles to the employers on the site. For the employers, the service provides a screening capability that drastically reduces the amount of time spent interviewing and hiring in high-turnover industries.
Web and video technology from JobOn simplifies and modernizes the process for the nearly 80 million employees and nine million workplaces that hire for retail, restaurants and hospitality. The results are less time spent on finding the right fit, reduced turnover and dramatically lower recruiting costs.
