Over 30,000 New Zealand Jobs from Hundreds of Websites in a Single Search: http://NewZealand.recruit.net
New Zealand joins the Asia Pacific Recruit.net network, which lists over 3million jobs
Auckland, New Zealand December 10, 2007 – Recruit.net announced today the launch of a new search engine for New Zealand jobs. In one simple search, the service gives job seekers free access to over 30,000 job opportunities from numerous websites in New Zealand.
Launched in 2006, Recruit.net is the leading search engine for jobs in Asia Pacific, with over 3 million job listings from across the region, including Singapore, Malaysia Japan, India, Australia, China and now New Zealand.
Applauding the announcement on the expansion into the New Zealand market, leading search consultant and HR blogger Mr Steven Kempton stated, “I believe Recruit.net adds a real difference to the NZ job board marketplace. The ability to truly search from one site provides several valuable tools for candidates. “It’s a real winner for candidates but it’s also very positive for employers who can now be confident that it doesn’t matter which board they advertise on it’s possible for candidates to find that job through Recruit.net. You’ll automatically have more coverage for your job without doing a thing or paying a cent.”
Recruit.net uses proprietary technology to provide the most comprehensive, relevant and fresh job search site in New Zealand that includes job listings from numerous websites, newspapers, recruitment agencies, associations, and companies directly.

Companies such as HP that venture deeper into the world of Web 2.0 technologies to find new hires may find themselves disappointed, at least initially. Despite the low turnout the company’s Second Life recruitment trial balloon yielded, however, HP’s Betty Smith is not deterred. She says she sees a lot of potential for using Second Life for recruiting.
In mid-May, Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) participated in a virtual job fair using Second Life tools from Linden Lab in San Francisco. HP had been invited by one of its external recruiters, TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications in New York. During the virtual event, recruiters and job applicants alike created avatars, or personas to represent themselves in the virtual world.
HP’s willingness to step into the Web 2.0 world for recruiting differentiates the company. In Computerworld‘s latest Vital Signs survey, none of the 233 IT professionals responding reported using Second Life for recruiting.
A scant 4 percent said they used blogs or social networking sites like Facebook to engage potential IT job candidates. Only 15 percent reported using professional networking sites such as LinkedIn. Moreover, 52 percent of the respondents said they don’t use any Web 2.0 tools for recruiting.
It seems that most IT organizations are missing out on a huge opportunity to connect — particularly with the talented twentysomethings who inhabit the virtual world. These Gen Yers are “tribal” and accustomed to the “very collaborative relationships” that Web 2.0 tools enable, says Tom Casey, senior vice president and workforce transformation leader at Kingwood, Texas-based consultancy BSG Concours.
