ACTA Launches New Careers Website --Careers In Travel

 The Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) has launched a new service on its website (www.acta.ca) to provide employers and career seekers with an electronic recruitment tool specifically for the travel industry. Careers in Travel offers a cost effective method for employee recruitment where employers pay a small fee to post jobs and job seekers submit their resumes at no cost. ACTA have teamed up with Brainhunter.com Ltd. to provide this service.

Careers in Travel is designed to help employers solve their staffing needs and assist employees seeking new opportunities. Employers will be provided with a secure job posting tool that allows them to post, edit and delete jobs as well as screen candidates against specific qualifications while career seekers will be able to investigate new career opportunities and receive electronic follow up when a new posting fits their criteria.

For employers, the applicant tracking software enables candidates applying for jobs to automatically be sorted into "A-lists" and "B-lists" depending on the extent their qualifications match the position description. Employers can also search the resume database specifically focused on travel industry candidates.

Both employers and career seekers will have complete control over the confidentiality of their information and are able to undertake customized job searches.

"ACTA is always looking to increase its value proposition to its members,"declared Marc-André Charlebois, ACTA President and CEO, "and we found in Brainhunter a good fit between our objectives and their services. We do hope that our agency members will make good use of these extended professional services."
