Snag A Job
Special Report: Snag A Job
"Right now we help between 12- and 15-thousand people a month," said Shawn Boyer, CEO of snagajob.com.
For Dina Qualizza and James Walsh - who run a junk removal business in the Boston area - the site has proved crucial to helping them find employees. "Spring, summer's our busy time of the year, so it seems that when we advertise on snagajob we get the kind of candidate we need," Walsh said.
A simple ZIP code search shows hundreds of available jobs here in the Boston area. But the site doesn't just help employees find job openings. It offers interview advice, answers questions about the recruiting process, and can even match employers with employees that fit specific needs.
"It also allows them to put in the types of hours they're looking for. If they're only available 2-3 days a week, only evenings, only weekends and that also helps us on our end when we’re going through the resumes, if we’re going to need extra help for additional days of the week," Qualizza said.
And for Dina and James - it's hourly employees that keep their business up and running. So for them - snag-a-job offers a resource that other job search websites do not. "If you're looking for part-time work or part-time as in temporary for a season or two, it's definitely the website to go to," said Walsh.
Walsh says just last week alone his company hired three new employees online.
