Recruiterbox, a cloud-based résumé management and applicant tracking system built with the small business owner in mind, announced the launch of its Hospitality Jobs Hotspot database. The database, which maintains nearly 1000 qualified candidates, provides restaurants and hotels in the New York City area with viable applicants seeking part-time and full-time employment – eliminating the need for companies to conduct the exhaustive, time-intensive process of building their own talent pools.
Restaurants and hotels in the area can benefit from the pool of candidates collected by Recruiterbox, especially with the busy summer season approaching and bringing with it a slew of tourists: data shows that New York City’s leisure and hospitality sector added over 8,000 jobs from March of 2013 to March of 2014. Furthermore, TravelClick North American Hospitality Review indicates that hotels remain poised to experience healthy growth in 2014, citing that individual and group bookings should rise over the next 12 months.
“Hospitality franchises and small businesses alike experience difficulties in hiring and recruiting – particularly during busy seasons – and these findings show the need for a systematic, centralized area for collecting and maintaining candidate information,” said Raj Sheth, CEO and co-founder of Recruiterbox.
“We created this database not only to provide hospitality hiring managers and recruiters with a pre-vetted, free list of potential hires but also to allow them to experience the benefits of an intuitive, turn-key solution to manage it all in the cloud.”
Recruiterbox posted job openings over the course of the past month for positions including servers, hosts/hostesses, managers, line cooks, laundry attendants, bartenders, food runners, front desk clerks, and housekeepers while specifying job opportunities for restaurants and hotels in New York City. Additionally, the team vetted candidates to ensure their résumés and cover letters meet the criteria set by the job postings. Those interested in reviewing the Hospitality Jobs Hotspot database and its candidates can visit this site and obtain a free two-week trial of Recruiterbox.
