Why use the Niche Network? [close]

Numerous Canadian and US research studies have demonstrated that industry-specific niche job sites provide unique access to skilled candidates, often whom are "pre-qualified" due to industry certification requirements set by their professional association (e.g. registered nurses, certified accountants etc). By partnering with these associations, we're giving you direct access to these highly qualified candidates and passive candidates that may otherwise not visit general job sites. The Niche Network allows you to target your recruiting and expand your reach to find the perfect qualified candidate.

What is the difference between purchasing from the association website and buying multiple Niche job postings? [close]

Purchasing NichePak credits offers employers the advantage of posting to more than 50 Niche Network association job boards from one location without having to register separately on the individual job sites. Your account can be used to manage all your job postings across the Niche Network. More information on these purchase options are available on the single-site posting and NichePak information pages.

How does the Candidate Matching online application system work? [close]

Candidates will be able to submit their "Profile" to an advertised job via the "Apply Online" button below the job ad. This will send a copy of the candidate's "Profile" to the email provided in the contact information section of your posting as well as to the "Review Applicants" section of your "Toolbox".

A candidate "Profile" contains a text version of their resume, their job match preferences, cover letter (if submitted) and skill information. All submitted Profiles are matched and rated against the criteria specified in your job posting.

What is the difference between an A-list or B-List candidate? [close]

The Candidate Matching system is designed to assist with candidate quality filtering. Candidates that match over 75% of your criteria will be designated as an A-List Candidate. All other candidates will be classified as B-List Candidates.
