A new employment community in Australia – Insidetrak.com.au – recently launched. The service links job ads and workplace reviews by employees with the aim of helping Australians find the jobs that fit them best.
The combination of tens of thousands of live job ads with answers to the big question, “what’s it really like to work there?” makes a convenient location and information-rich experience for people considering a change of employer.
“InsideTrak will give job seekers a more complete view of a potential workplace and also allow employers to participate in the conversation about their company,” said founder, Mike Larsen. “Ultimately, we see InsideTrak helping to achieve an Australian workforce better suited to their place of work and reducing staff turnover.”
InsideTrak’s founding principle is anonymity – a safe place where anyone can give their honest, no-holds-barred opinion of their current or former employer.
“We see InsideTrak as a community, since we ask members to provide a review before they can see everyone else’s. We want people to feel comfortable about giving their honest opinion and we are asking people to think about how they can help others to find the workplace they deserve, and that fits their specific needs.”
Employers and recruiters are encouraged to join the conversation. “We are looking for candidates to socialise with employers and recruiters directly – we don’t recycle jobs from traditional job boards, rather we connect them directly to the advertiser’s own site,” Larsen explained.
And, naturally, InsideTrak can accept the RSS 2.0 feeds that PCRecruiter offers, thereby allowing InsideTrak to automatically update its site with the current job listings from any PCRecruiter database. PCRecruiter users can ask their trainer or consultant for info on setting up the feed.
