February and March were busy months at JobsInTheHunter headquarters. Site growth continues to be strong (as you will see from our stats). Connection with an ever-increasing number of people on Facebook also continues to be strong and we are finding the social media platform to be an effective and popular interactive communication tool for both employers and job seekers.

We Welcome a New Hunter Partner

We are pleased to announce that SIMFIN Financial Planning is now on board as a new Promotional Partner for the Hunter region. SIMFIN, led by Simeon Levin, is part of the Fitzpatrick Dealer Group and is regarded as a leading team of experts in financial planning and wealth management within the Hunter region. The company has a particular interest in the healthcare and medical sector (the largest employer in both the Central Coast and Hunter regions) and we look forward to their assistance and support towards connecting more regional jobseekers with local employers.

The Numbers

We are pleased to report the following comparative statistics based on Google Analytics data (comparison between February 2012 and February 2013):
Site Visits – 44.23% increase
Unique Visitors – 41.29% increase
Page views – 77.21% increase
Bounce Rate – 23.06% decrease (the goal is a decreased bounce rate) welcomed

Our presence has been strongly welcomed by the business contacts we have made so far in the Hunter region where the employment market and business community is extremely dynamic. We recently met with three significant recruitment businesses in the Hunter who each told us they see the service as a great initiative that will allow them to connect more effectively with the local workforce.

Showcasing our Regional ‘Skilled & Available’ Workforce

Following a suggestion from NSW Trade & Investment we intend to roll out a new initiative supported by the state government. The plan is to showcase specific profiles of ‘Skilled and Available’ candidates in both local regions via (Central Coast and Hunter sites). We also plan to adopt a strategy to actively promote the ‘Skilled and Available’ workforce to employers. This initiative will help to fill a gap in the existing jobs board market, which was clearly highlighted to us by the state government.
