The number of qualified job seekers is overflowing and companies are trying to find the right fit for open corporate positions. As the economy returns to pre-recession levels, the challenge also increases for HR and recruiters who have to weed out the chafe and find these nuggets.

Join a Blogging4Jobs.com technology webinar on June 14 at 11 a.m. CST to learn the 7 best search engine optimization and marketing strategies to attract the best candidates to company job openings and career pages.

Learn how targeted SEO optimized job descriptions, detailed career page content and other SEO job search strategies can yield positive recruiting results saving your recruitment, HR, and hiring managers time as well as money improving the corporate bottom line. The strategies during this session can significantly impact cost per hire and time to fill as we rely on candidates to use Internet search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing to search for job openings instead of the traditional job boards to search for work.

Speakers will pay special attention to the importance of developing a long term recruitment and SEO strategy working with senior business leaders as well as your Marketing department to help drive targeted candidates tapping into the power of web crawlers, social media, and the latest search engine and Internet technology.

“There are 226,000,000 million global searches for the word “job” each month,” says Blogging4Jobs.com Chief Editor, Jessica Miller-Merrell. “Job seekers are using internet search engines to search for available job openings because there are thousands of job boards, aggregators and career sites to choose from. They don’t want to miss out and neither do employers, which is why SEO is so important to target specific job seekers by keyword.”
