Avjobs is flexing its muscle in aviation recruiting with more ways for business to promote aviation job listings. The new Hosted Careers Mini Site feature gives companies another way to attract top talent to current openings. These Mini Sites also help companies to market their products, services, news and announcements to connect with more followers on social networks and promote themselves with the Aviation Ad Network to get their open position in front of more candidates.
All employer accounts come with the new Hosted Careers Mini Site feature, and Avjobs is experimenting with a slew of new recruiting features tied to mini sites. Based on the traffic and behavior behavior we’ve seen on Avjobs, we’re running tests on job postings and applications from candidates to improve the overall effectiveness of the process.
Another new feature allows companies to formally share a job opening with related details like job title, company name and location. The special delivery and formatting could differentiate job postings from other content and attract eyeballs in the crowded job availability market and applicant pool.
Company job postings show up on the Hosted Careers Mini Site, creating a dedicated landing place where companies can send job seekers. Companies get the added benefit of potentially gaining new followers whether or not someone applies for the open position, compared to a relatively static Careers page on a company’s website.
Job postings include an “Apply Now” button that launches a standard job application flow, but pre-populated with information from a user’s profile. That helps people quickly apply for jobs without typing in redundant information.
Submitted applications are received by companies as an Avjobs Message (job application) sent to the email address of the company’s recruiter, website or ATS.
Businesses are also able to pay to show their job postings to more people with Aviation Ad Network ad offerings. Avjobs opportunity here combines its ubiquitous reach, personal data and engagement.
Avjobs added personalized RSS Feeds for company jobs last year, which provide additional syndication in the aviation industry.
Avjobs applicant profiles, are filled with extensive information about their past jobs titles, employers, education and interests. Recruiters can target job posting ads so they reach people with the right credentials in preferred locations. And because people browse Avjobs and the thousands of Aviation Ad Network publisher sites constantly, those users are likely to eventually see the ads.
Most Avjobs users visit when they’re updating their profile about a new job, or are actively looking for one. But Avjobs can reach people not even thinking about a job, yet could be convinced to apply for the chance at a higher salary or better job title.
That’s the same reason Avjobs has been able to build giant brand and performance advertising businesses. Avjobs offers demand generation, drumming up interest people didn’t know they had. [More]

Understanding the Hiring “Funnel” can Help You Gauge Your Chances Understanding the Hiring “Funnel” can Help You Gauge Your Chances
In recruiting, we have what is known as a “hiring funnel” or yield model for every job which helps recruiting leaders understand how many total applications they need to generate in order to get a single hire. As an applicant, this funnel reveals your chances of success at each step of the hiring process. For the specific case of an online job posting, on average, 1,000 individuals will see a job post, 200 will begin the application process, 100 will complete the application, 75 of those 100 resumes will be screened out by either the ATS or a recruiter, 25 resumes will be seen by the hiring manager, 4 to 6 will be invited for an interview, 1 to 3 of them will be invited back for final interview, 1 will be offered that job and 80 percent of those receiving an offer will accept it (Talent Function Group LLC).

Why do some companies post jobs as confidential?
A "Confidential" posting means that the company chooses to remain anonymous. This typically happens for one of a few reasons.
Some companies don't want it to be publicly known they are hiring. Perhaps they haven't advertised it even to their own employees.
Sometimes they are going to replace a person who doesn't know it yet and they don’t want them mistakenly finding out they are interviewing for the position.
Perhaps they don't want their competitors knowing what sort of skill set they are looking for.
Perhaps they don't want their stock prices to drop when the public realizes the star employee with the brilliant ideas' is retiring and needs to be replaced.
Someone is about to get fired and the company is looking to find a replacement without tipping them off
The company doesn't want to deal with the sea of people wanting to follow up via the phone. Yes when it says, "No phone calls" they are serious. It is not a test to see if you really want the job and so you will call. Keep in mind that the average posting gets about 1000 people looking at it and so they would have to hire someone full time just to field the phone calls about the job or the calls of "I just want to make sure you got my resume"
We get a lot of posted jobs from a lot of "big shots" and what people want is normal professionals applying to jobs, what they don't want is a John Travolta/Seattle Seahawks/Garth Brooks fan applying to a job that they don't have any business going after.
We manually screen each posting and run a check on all new employers using the site so the reality is that a confidential posting can really be one of the "better" jobs that we have on the site.
Unfortunately we cannot reveal to anyone who the company is.
We realize that for some job seekers who are currently employed you don't want to apply to a confidential job at your own company (this has happened) or otherwise get outed to your employer that you are looking.
This industry is filled with go getters, if you are looking and you get "caught" congratulations, you are just like everyone else.
If you are not happy in your job or if your employer isn't challenging you enough then by all means get out there and find a new job. There are plenty of legitimate reasons why they might want to be confidential. Our advice is to apply, you really have nothing to lose. [More]
