Seek.com.au is a job-seeking, recruitment and career advice site. It matches recruiters and job seekers online using advanced technology. There are more than thirty job classifications (accounting, legal, construction, trades, etc.) and most jobs in all organisations fit under any of those categories. At present the website is exposed to 2.9 billion people in 18 countries, with 190 million registered job seekers and 900 thousand registered recruiters.
Employers can register for free and post job opportunities in their organisations. They can choose between three job listing payment options: Classic, Standout and Premium. Classic, the most affordable option, enables job postings to appear on mobile and desktop searches and in daily and weekly candidate emails. It also gives employers 1,000 talent search credits and free candidate management tools. Standout has more benefits than Classic and is more expensive while Premium has even more benefits and is the most expensive.
Job seekers can register for free and create profiles which can be viewed by registered employers. There are three privacy settings that help them to control who sees their profiles. Job seekers can view jobs available by searching by job type, area of interest, job classification, suburb, city and region. They also receive email notifications each time a new job that suits them is posted. When candidates come across suitable vacancies, they can apply online. Their searches and applications are saved by the website.
