jobmedic.co.uk – CV search using criteria feature

We would like to let you know about our new CV search feature.

CV search using criteria filter

This filter allows you to search CV titles with exact keywords. For example, if you would like to find registered nurses and not see any other CV titles, this is a great filter to use. Please kindly note that this filter will exclude all the candidates with a different CV title out of your search result (some excluded candidates might still be qualified for the role).

Here is a guide how to use this filter:

  • Please open the criteria filter by clicking “0 criteria”

  • Next, add in the keyword wanted to see in the CV titles.
  • Finally click on “search”

jobmedic.co.uk – What counts as a CV Database credit?

 

We would like to let you know about our latest changes on our website. We have changed our CV Database to accommodate your needs and part of that is how we count the credits used.

What counts as a CV Database credit?

  • Selecting multiple CVs on the search results page and forwarding those to selected email address.

When you choose multiple CVs at once and forward those (performing “bulk action”), this will count as credits. For example, if we choose three CVs and forward these, you would use three credits.

  • Downloading CVs on the main results page.

If the candidate has uploaded a CV for their profile, you are able to download that from the main results page by clicking the download icon. This action will use up one credit per CV.

  • Unlocking chosen CV.

This is our newest feature that will allow you to have a closer look into our candidates without using a credit. Only once you click “Unlock CV Info”, you will use up one credit. By doing this, you will be able to perform actions to this candidate and view their contact details for the next 24 hours without spending more credits.

  • Creating tags no longer uses a credit from you.

If you would like to save some candidates in the search results list for later, you can do so by selecting the wanted CVs and clicking “Tag Selected CV’s”. You may name this tags as wished and by pressing, ‘enter’ you have successfully created a tag. You will find these candidates later under the “Tags” section. Please note that this action will no longer use up any credits from you.

jobmedic.co.uk – How to unlock a CV!

We would like to let you know about our latest changes on our website. We have changed our CV Database to accommodate your needs and part of that is how we count the credits used.

Please be advised that we have changed the way we show the candidates on your CV search results. As from this month, you are able to look into the candidate profiles without using a credit. Only once the CV is “unlocked” you will spend a credit and see the following details:

– Candidate last name
– Candidate contact details
– Candidate full CV
– Action buttons

How to unlock a CV

Once you enter candidates’ profile, you will find only a small summary of their details:

To reveal candidates’ full information, you will need to unlock the CV:

Once unlocked, you will be able to download and forward the CV and contact the candidate.

Unlocking a CV will cost one credit and it will be unlocked for 24 hours.

Moreover, further actions for the unlocked CV will be free of charge for the next 24 hours.

If the same CV will be unlocked again after 24 hours, that action will cost another credit.

 

You will find more details about the cost of every action in the CV Database Search in the following post  “What counts as a CV Database credit?”

Boolean Searches for Health Care

Boolean 101. Here’s your quick guide to understanding the basics of Boolean.

AND SEARCHES

AND searches require that all of the terms you have listed are found in your results. AND narrows or decreases results.
The result would be everything in the green area: the solutions that contain both blue and yellow.
For example: design and html — The results would be everyone who had “design” as well as “html” listed somewhere in
their resume.

OR SEARCHES

OR searches require that your results contain any one of the terms being searched. The OR operator can be used to
broaden or increase your results.
In this case, the result would be everything in the blue, yellow, or green area: the solutions that are either blue or yellow!
For example: mechanic or diesel — The results would be everyone who had either “mechanic” or “diesel” listed
somewhere in their resume.

NOT SEARCHES

NOT (or AND NOT) Searches — NOT (or AND NOT) searches mean that a term or terms can be excluded from your results.
In this case, the result would be everything in the blue area only — nothing that contains any yellow!
For example: pharmaceutical and not sales
The results would be everyone who had “pharmaceutical” in their resume, but would automatically exclude everyone
who had “sales.”

Here are some examples to give you an idea of the Boolean search. You may amend and add filters relevant to your needs.

 

Medical Assistant
(“medical assistant”) (“medical equipment” OR “medical devices” OR “medical device” OR “med device” OR
“stryker” OR “abbott” OR “boston scientific” OR “depuy” OR “j&j” OR “kci”) (“medical instruments”) (“lab

devices” OR “pharmaceuticals” OR “device” OR “medical device” OR “chemical” OR “health” OR “hospital”)
(“medical supplies”)
(medical OR med OR surgical OR GP OR “doctor’s” OR doctors OR clinical) (assistant OR ass OR asst)

Practitioner OR NMC)

(technician OR tech OR otc OR wbt OR “ward-based” OR “ward based” OR Technician)

Troubleshooting jobs

We make finding the perfect candidate easy, but sometimes you need a little extra help!

I posted my job on jobmedic, but I realized I need to edit the posting. How can I do this?

In the Jobs & Applications section of your jobmedic account, you can edit any part of your job posting by clicking on the job title from the Active tab.

Keep in mind, if you continue to edit your job posting’s title throughout the posting month, it will impact our ability to recommend this job to other qualified candidates.

I have found the perfect candidate for my open position, and I want to delete my job posting off jobmedic. How can I do this?

We recommend leaving your job posting active for the full month it is posted for (even if you’ve already found the perfect candidate) to accumulate as many resumes as possible. However, sometimes you just need to delete the posting. To do this, click the bin icon next the job listed within your Active tab.

It’s almost been a month and my job posting is about to expire on jobmedic, but I want to keep accepting candidates for the position. What do I do?

Use the Auto Renew feature to keep job postings active on the site for one additional month. Within the Active tab, click the job title, then click edit and then select Auto-Renew this Job Posting listed within Job Tracking section.

If you renew your job, it will count as a job posting credit for the additional month it is active.

I’ve found the perfect candidate for the position, and I know that I’ll probably need to fill this job again in the future. What can I do to make it easier next time?

Beyond creating a template of your job posting, you can also reactivate a job position. To reactivate a job, click the job title, then select New and then from the dropdown menu select copy to active. Templates can be created and modified under my templates section on the left hand sidebar.

Just a heads up – if you relist your job for another month, it will count as a job posting credit for the additional month it is active.

Google for Jobs

You might have heard the good news! Google for Jobs is now live in the UK. Please find below some general information and tips on ensuring your jobs are indexed via jobmedic.co.uk

Google Enriched Job Search or Google for Jobs is a new offering from Google that aggregates millions of jobs from job boards, career sites, social networks and other sources.

Job seekers can use Google to search for “jobs near me,” “nurse jobs,” or similar queries, and receive in-depth results on jobs from across the web. Users can also search for key criteria such as commute time, job specialities they have honed or the hours they are available to work.

Enriched Search does not replace standard Google search results. Rather, it is a supplemental set of results displayed in a box situated above the standard results listings on Google. For the most part pure aggregates like Indeed are being excluded from Google for Jobs.

Top 5 tips

USE JOB TITLES THAT ARE NORMAL FOR YOUR INDUSTRY

“Registered Nurse” is a thousand times better than “Ninja Registered Nurse”. Leave the gimmicky words out of your titles.

DON’T USE ABBREVIATIONS IN YOUR TITLES

“Senior Mental Health Nurse” will be much more discoverable than “Sr. Mental Nurses”. Google’s search algorithms rank non-abbreviations higher than abbreviations.

PUT SALARY IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION

Google for Jobs is designed for job seekers, not recruiters. Google believes candidates want to know the salary of the job before they apply. Therefore, those job postings with salary will show up higher in their results. Google does not care about your thoughts on this. The data shows postings with salary information get more traffic than those without, even when the salary is below market rate.

PUT THE EXACT STREET LOCATION IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION

See the explanation above. Google for Jobs is for job seekers, and job seekers want to know where the job is. Jobs with exact locations will show up higher in results.

STOP “KEYWORD STUFFING”

Traditional SEO was about keyword stuffing. Put as many words as possible into the post about the job and it will more likely rank higher. Google figured out people were doing this, and they are now ranking those postings lower. You still need to write great job postings, but you don’t need “Java Developer” in a posting 25 times. Five mentions will do just fine.

Logos

You can specify the image Google Search will use for your organization in the search results. Google Search uses markup to recognize the image to use as the organization’s logo. Markup like this is a strong signal to Google Search algorithms to show this image in Knowledge Graph displays. You can find the markup and the properties table here.

Recruitment Strategy Model

Understand your recruiting needs so you can optimize your process to find the right candidates!

Where are you on the funnel?

Before you post a job, first identify your recruitment strategy. Do you need as many applications as possible? Or, do you need a more refined number of applications that include highly qualified candidates? From there, use Jobmedic tools to execute on your strategy to achieve your recruiting goals.

HIGH VOLUME

You might need a High Volume Recruitment Strategy if you’re filling a position that has high turnover, is seasonal or if there is a limited supply of potential candidates. Other indications could be if you do not have specific requirements (i.e. high school diploma, entry-level, etc.). Here are some ideas for creating a High Volume Strategy:

  • Use common job titles within the posting
  • Mention compensation (or key benefits)
  • Create and send email campaigns
  • Do not include screening questions, since these restrict the position from being dynamically recommended to job seekers and can increase candidate drop off

REFINED

You’ll need a Refined Recruitment Strategy if there is an ample supply of candidates, you’re filling positions with extremely specific requirements or if the position can be open for a longer period of time. Here are some ideas for creating a Refined Strategy:

  • Post to niche job boards
  • Create robust job requirements within posting
  • Include premium company branding to target specific audiences
  • Include one or two screening questions that confirm candidates have certain education levels or levels of experience
