Revamped Cars & Jobs Website More Modern, Intuitive
October 9, 2018
A fresh new look will be greeting dealers who visit the carsandjobs.com website, which is being revamped to offer a more modern look and intuitive feel, according to Astrid Mauger, CADA’s Marketing Specialist.
“TADA is doing a great job in updating this website, which will be nicer to look at and more user-friendly,” said Mauger in an interview with CADA Newsline. “They’re streamlining the paths for job seekers, employers and students. The site is being optimized for all screens and devices for online marketing and visibility purposes, providing dealers with the ability to search and post employment opportunities across Canada. We support TADA in this initiative, because it really is great for the industry in its entirety.”
According to Mauger, the core tools on the website (such as job postings, job credits and job seeker accounts) will not change. And the Cars & Jobs URL, along with the Auto Career Start website, also will remain untouched during the redesign. The updated version of carsandjobs.com will be launched this week.
CADA has extended the free period to the end of the calendar year* for dealers to post employment opportunities on the Carsandjobs.com site. These job offers will appear both on the job board and the employment-listing search engine Indeed.com, for free. The fee per post after the free period is $25.
ACS is designed to help dealers attract more qualified and diverse people to careers in the Canadian automotive retail industry. The program has gained traction on social media, and as of this summer, there are more hits to the website from job seekers than there are dealer job postings online.
“People are interested in working in the auto retail sector,” said Mauger. “The changes to the Cars & Jobs site will further help dealers reach those people, and provide them with an opportunity to be part of an exciting and continuously evolving industry. We look forward to even greater dealer participation with these latest updates.”
