Free Publicity for Small Businesses Who Are Hiring

Posted May 02, 2012 by

Smart Recruiters Got Jobs landing pageI recently teamed up with my friends over at SmartRecruiters, the free, web-based applicant tracking system, on their Got Jobs? initiative to help put America back to work.

The initiative is designed to help create one million jobs in the U.S. by simplifying the hiring process while celebrating the heroes who are hiring new employees despite today’s difficult economic times. More than 12.7 million Americans are unemployed, yet according to Bersin and Associates, 80 percent of businesses report difficulty hiring, and 3.5 million U.S. jobs are currently left unfilled. If these positions were filled, the unemployment rate in the U.S. would be an estimated three percentage points lower than what it is today.

“We live in an increasingly connected world. Hiring should be fast, easy and social; not lengthy, painful and expensive like it is today,” said SmartRecruiters Founder and CEO Jerome Ternynck. “Through the Got Jobs? Campaign, we and our partners are seeking to make it easier than ever before for companies to hire, grow their businesses and strengthen the economy. We are laser-focused on creating one million U.S. jobs. We welcome everyone to join our Got Jobs? crusade and the Zero Unemployment Movement.”

The Got Jobs? campaign honors the people, business owners and managers who are creating jobs. In recognition of those job creators, SmartRecruiters created the “I Hired” Badge. The “I Hired” Badge can be displayed on a company’s website or Facebook profile and represents to its fans and followers that the business has created a job in 2012. This social campaign encourages the public to consider whether a company is driving our economy forward by asking a simple question: “Got Jobs?”

As part of the campaign, SmartRecruiters has created a series of custom landing pages (see above) featuring business owners who have hired in the past year.  Visitors to the page see a changing series of business owners who have made hires, and invites the visitor to create an additional job right then and there.

Would you be willing to have your face/name/company name/number of recent hires included on one of these pages?  It will lead to some good exposure for your brand.  Post a comment below if you’re interested.

Best Regards,

Steven Rothberg, Founder and President
