It's a very exciting time for us at Red this week as we have just launched our shiny new website alongside our brand new CRM software provided by Firefish, an exciting Technology Start Up based in Glasgow.
That’s very nice but what does this actually mean for you as a candidate?
Well for a start it will mean that you will have your very own profile and you can see exactly where you stand at any point in the recruiting process. That means you can actually view when your CV has been submitted by one of our consultants to a client. No more waiting around after you have applied for a job to hear if it has been received, this transparency lets you know what's going on.
One of the functions we are most excited about is the fact that you can sign up to new job alerts that are linked to your chosen career path. Not only that but when you add in the salary requirements and the locations that you would consider your job alerts will be tailored to your exact requirements. When one of our consultants create a new job, suitable candidates will appear in a shortlist from that point on we can get in touch or if you receive the alert you can apply directly. It is worth noting that you can adjust your settings so that you don't receive any alerts when you are no longer looking for a new role.
Will the changes help me get a new position?
In a word...Yes! But it is important that you keep your profile up to date and attach your up to date CV. The changes we have made will prevent your CV falling through the gaps and being lost in a database, it has long been our commitment to give the candidates that come to us the best possible customer experience through both innovation and customer service.
Are there any other changes that have been made to the website?
Of course, here are two of the things that we are most proud of.
Our Blog
We have pulled together some excellent content for job seekers with advice in many areas from CV writing to planning the job search. Through our blog you will also be able to keep up to date with the global goings-on in many different sectors plus some good old fashioned motivational content that we all need from time to time.
If there is any specific advice that you would like to help in your job search please let us know.
