In 1995, GeoSearch became a pioneer of on-line recruiting and was forced into developing rudimentary but effective web-based applications and resources. After some trial and error, eventually the business developed a solid foundation for communication and data capturing. Today, GeoSearch has a robust online database system and the home page is global landing spot for anyone looking for “GIS Jobs” or “GIS resumes”. For users, the back office technology offers easy Profile/Resume management that supports one or multiple profiles/resumes per user account. To meet the needs of this technologically savvy demographic, the architecture supports resumes as text (keyed or pasted) or uploaded attachments (.pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt). Everything is customizable.
“We have seen it all. In the early days we used a phone and fax machines. Today, it’s all about email and social media plug-in's that engage the geospatial community we serve.” said Senior Recruiter Ty Touchard. Excellent geospatial specific traffic is responsible for the success of this on-line business. Connecting employers with job seekers is a tricky match making process that takes experience to navigate properly. Sixteen years on-line is certainly an accomplishment worth celebrating.
