BNP Media, the Troy, Mich.-based parent company of SDM and Security, recently announced a partnership with BirdDog Career Centers which combines the resources of the leading media company serving the mechanical systems field with the leading job/career center resource focused on this market.
“The collective audience from our security, mechanical systems, maintenance and construction brands approaches 1 million subscribers or website visitors,” said BNP Media publishing director Tim Fausch. “By partnering with BirdDog, we will help those pros solve employment challenges so they can focus more intently on serving their customers.”
Tailored to business owners and hiring managers searching for uniquely qualified tradesmen, the industry-specific career center will be powered by BirdDog’s Candidate Acquisition & Management System (CAMS). A web-enabled recruitment program customized for security, construction, mechanical and engineering companies, CAMS allows employers to post an open position once. CAMS then distributes the opening across the BirdDog family of niche job sites, including BirdDogJobs.com, MEPjobs.com and ASHRAEjobs.com.
Beyond posting jobs, CAMS helps hiring managers score, track and maintain a database of applicants. This not only helps fill current vacancies; it supports BirdDog’s philosophy of “always-on recruiting,” which encourages companies to build a bench of qualified candidates for those emergency openings innate to the skilled trades.
In addition, CAMS creates a “paperless paper trail” for contractors held to Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employment regulations.
“The foundations of traditional recruiting are crumbling, and the war for talent is on in specialized industries,” said BirdDog vice president of marketing Doug Mitchell. “Companies with large recruiting budgets are snapping up key employees and using social networking, video and enhanced company career pages to attract both active and passive jobseekers. BirdDog levels the playing field for smaller companies.”
