NowHiringTeachers.com, powered by the Center for American Jobs, is a new recruiting solution that integrates the web and the telephone to provide employers with a comprehensive skill assessment of job candidates. The web site is intended to provide a fast, easy, and cost-effective way for employers to find pre-qualified candidates that meet their minimum hiring standards. The heart of NowHiringTeachers.com involves the pre-screening and pre-qualifying of prospective employees, using state-of-the-art Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone technology and the internet. Responding to recruitment advertising, candidates can call 800-NOW-HIRING or go to the web site to answer a series of job-related questions designed to pre-qualify them to the employers’ hiring standards. The site’s proprietary system compares the candidate’s answers to employers’ individual hiring criteria, and, where there is a match, automatically eMails or faxes an enhanced resume to employers. The site also allows candidates to record a special message to prospective employers, allowing them to listen to those messages at any time via the internet or the telephone. Use of the service is fee-based for districts, but free to the job-seeker.
