LONDON, November 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Jobseekers looking to find a new job in a particular location now have a fantastic new interactive tool, offered by Totaljobs.com, to help them with their job search.
Totaljobs, a leading online job site (http://www.totaljobs.com/) attracting 2.9 million jobseekers every month, knows how difficult searching for vacancies can be, particularly for those needing a vacancy in a specific location.
To help simplify this process totaljobs has just launched a unique and highly visual proximity and maps feature (http://www.totaljobs.com/JobSearch/jobs-on-a-map.aspx), which takes the location of a job and overlays this on to a Google Map. This ground-breaking new feature is completely different to the typical flat, list view results pages found on other job sites, setting totaljobs apart from the competition.
The maps tool, which was introduced this month, not only provides users with a much more interactive and visual view of the jobs on offer but it also improves the efficiency of what can be a time consuming process, as it allows up to 200 jobs to be located on just one map. Previously this would have required jobseekers to look through up to 10 pages of results.
People searching for jobs in London (http://www.totaljobs.com/JobSeeking/London_l1621_t2.html), for example, will be able to bring up suitable jobs within a specified distance of their chosen location and see these highlighted by pins on a single image provided by Google Maps. The perfect location can then be selected by clicking on the most relevant pin, at which point the job title, key benefits and features of all jobs at that location pop up. Potential jobs can then be selected and dropped into a basket ahead of a later application. The added motivation of seeing all of the jobs available in the chosen area makes the new tool a great new addition to the website.
Totaljobs.com is committed to helping people find the best jobs in their area but this new feature is not only exciting to use for jobseekers, it is great for recruiters too. With more jobs being shown on one page, there will be a much higher chance of the advertised job being viewed. This will help to provide recruiters with a higher number of quality applicants to choose from.
Totaljobs has developed a great solution which makes searching for jobs easier, faster, and the only online jobs portal to do so.
