A Word on Part Time and Hourly Job Search Online for Employers and Job Seekers

The demand for hourly and/or part-time employees has increased significantly with the improvement of the economy. Companies are continuously recruiting for these positions across all industries - from administrative to transportation to restaurant positions - and it will continue to grow as companies utilize more online recruitment options in addition to local newspapers. And, as the average American changes jobs 10 times and switches careers three times over the course of a lifetime, there will always be a large group of job seekers searching for part time jobs and hourly job opportunities.

Employers and job seekers should feel comfortable using the Internet for recruitment purposes, so it is important that job boards offer the most effective recruiting tools. Hiring the most qualified part time employees has never been more important, and there are tools for both employers and job seekers to use that better help in the selection process.

Online resume databases, for instance, allow job seekers to immediately apply for part time jobs that interest them. If job seekers choose to activate their resumes, then additional prospective employers will also receive their resumes for other positions. As a result, employers receive qualified resumes and job seekers increase their exposure. In addition, employers may also have access to the entire resume database to continue searching for qualified candidates for part time and hourly jobs based on the specific requirements for their part time job openings.
