RISMEDIA, March 8 — To promote the services of its real estate job board, the Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA) is giving a Blackberry hand-held wireless computer to one lucky person who simply posts a resume online.
Branded CareeRealEstate, the job board provides employers and employees with an electronic tool specifically for the real estate industry. It offers a cost-effective method of employee recruitment where job seekers submit their resumes at no cost. ORRA has teamed up with Brainhunterâ€™s Global Talent Network to provide this service.
“We have created this Blackberry promotion to get the word out that there is a place for the real estate professional to turn when seeking employment or employees,â€ says ORRA President Lydia Pisano. She notes that most other skilled disciplines, such as the medical and legal fields, have had their own job boards for years, and it was time real estate joined the fold.
The features of the system are abundant. For employers, candidates applying for jobs are automatically sorted into â€œA-listsâ€ and â€œB-listsâ€ depending on their qualifications and the position description. Employers can also search a resume database and are provided with a secure job posting tool that allows them to post, edit, and delete jobs, as well as screen candidates against specific qualifications. They are assessed a nominal fee for these services.
Both employers and career-seekers have complete control over the confidentiality of their information and are able to undertake customized job searches. Employees are able to investigate new career opportunities and receive electronic follow-up when a new posting fits their criteria.
To take part in the promotion or to sign on as an employer, visit www.orlrealtor.com, click on â€œReal Estate Services,â€ and then scroll to â€œReal Estate Job Board.â€ The promotion will run until April 30. 2005.
The Orlando Regional Realtor Association represents more than 8,500 professionals serving as real estate consultants throughout Central Florida.
