TORONTO, July 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Drake International is pleased to
announce the launch of a major global initiative to serve the needs of
job seekers and HR professionals/business leaders worldwide.
DrakeMobile is a custom-designed mobile application for iPhone, iPad and
Blackberry (Bold and Torch). Almost like two applications in one, it is
tailored to meet the ever-expanding needs of Drake's two audiences; job
seekers and HR Professionals/Business leaders.
Job seekers can use multiple keywords and industries to conduct manual
searches for Drake posted jobs in Canada, the US, Australia, New
Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore. Alternatively the user can create job
alerts, based on their own personal search criteria then choose their
method of notification through email, Twitter, Facebook, or through
RSS. Users can find where the job is located via Google Maps, apply for
it, save it, or share it with friends. DrakeMobile is the most
customizable and robust mobile job search tool available today - it's
available in English and French and it's free!
HR and business leaders will have the opportunity to order full-time or
part-time staff for their business - on the go! Users will be able to
conduct a search for a Drake office in 9 countries, interact with an
online turnover calculator and have mobile access to all of Drake's
business publications, including The Drake Business Review and
up-to-date content from Drake's corporate blog, DrakePulse.com.
Job seekers, clients, HR professionals and business leaders can download
the DrakeMobile app by visiting the Apple APP Store or Blackberry APP
About Social Media at Drake
Drake strongly feels technology provides an opportunity to connect with
job seekers and employers like never before. Investment in this area
started with Drake's new Fan Page on Facebook and continues with the
launch of DrakeMobile and DrakePulse.
"When Drake was founded in Winnipeg in 1951, it was a different world -
especially when it comes to technology," says Drake International's
Founder and Chairman, Bill Pollock. "There are more interesting ways to
connect and communicate with job seekers and clients today, and I'm
thrilled with the capabilities of DrakeMobile and look forward to
seeing how they positively impact job seekers, our clients, and the
global community at large with a better experience and the information
they need to succeed."
