NationaLease Careers Website Sees 42% Growth Rate in Openings Posted
NationaLease member companies are posting more jobs for technicians and job seekers by the thousands are responding.
June 06, 2014, Downers Grove, IL – Since NationaLease, one of the largest full service truck leasing organizations in North America, launched its new Careers page one year ago, the number of job openings posted has grown 42%, while the number of job seekers who have responded to the openings is now in the thousands, according to Jane Clark, the group’s Vice President of Member Services.
Clark, a national authority in diesel technician recruitment, who oversees the online NationaLease Careers campaign, credits some of its success to the connection between the job postings in the upgraded Careers page on the NationaLease Website and job aggregator sites like Indeed.com. “Our upgraded Careers page is bringing in more applications, which has resulted in more hires for our member companies,” she said “Now that Indeed.com and other aggregators can access our Careers page and pull the job postings onto their sites, it’s significantly increased the traffic to our posts.”
Clark noted that among the greatest number of responses have been to postings for diesel mechanic and diesel technician. “Interestingly, though, we’ve found that the best keyword search term being used is ‘mechanic’ which is entered by applicants 32% more than the term ‘diesel mechanic’ and 50% more than the phrase ‘diesel technician,‘” she said.
When it was launched, the Careers page was a huge improvement over the previous job posting page on the NationaLease site, according to Clark. Among the biggest enhancements was a new standardized posting form that asked prospective employers to supply information for each job offer meant to stimulate the interest of the job seekers. “After we ask the employers to describe their businesses, we suggest they tell job seekers what benefits they offer them,” she said. “With everyone vying for the same candidates, any information they can give that sets them apart from the competition can go a long way to achieving success.”
In addition to diesel technician being near the top of job titles offered by NationaLease members, other titles include general manager, fleet leasing account manager, administrative assistant, and of course, driver. The Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic areas are where most of the job searchers are coming from.
