Net-Temps and Job Rooster Bring Jobs to Users' Mobile Phones

Net-Temps and Job Rooster have partnered to bring mobile recruiting services for the first time to their users throughout the United States. Net-Temps, one of the largest job boards of part-time, temporary and full-time jobs, is adding the service to their current online offering, giving more than a million active jobseekers the opportunity to receive job listings via text message.

“Temporary and contract workers represent a huge portion of the labor force, but many of these folks are not connected to the Internet on a daily or even weekly basis,” said Job Rooster CEO Nick Ellis. “Job Rooster eliminates the need for a computer or Internet connection entirely, and simplifies the job search process for workers on the go.”

The text-message based mobile platform enables job seekers to receive job alerts on their cell phones and access the newest job postings anytime, anywhere.

Net-Temps VP of Marketing, Sue Booth, commented, “The collaboration with the Job Rooster mobile service helps add additional channels of distribution for employment information for jobseekers. They can receive text messages of job alerts anytime, anywhere directly on their mobile phone and send their favorite job posts directly to their email inbox.

The partnership comes at a time when people are increasingly relying on their cell phones for personal and professional purposes. Roughly 90% of Americans have mobile phones, of which 98% are text message-enabled. The New York Times reported in May 2010 that mobile phones are now used more for text messaging than for talking, with many demographics sending over 100 text messages per month.
