"We managed to fill our receptionist position with a candidate from OttawaJobShop.ca. The response was great and we will definitely use this format for future recruiting.
"I must say that I am very impressed with
your firms web site, your attention to
detail and high level of service. I will
be using Ottawa Job Shop again.

"I think OttawaJobShop.ca is an excellent venue
for posting available positions. I have received many CV's for our current
posting.I will definitely use your site again.
"We have had tremendous luck so far with Ottawajobshop.ca. It has proved to be an excellent tool for our recruitment needs.
"This is the first time that we have used
your company's service and we were pleased with the caliber and number of
responses. We will definitely think of using OttawaJobShop again.
"I am quite satisfied with the value of your product and
recommended it to others already. The newspaper pales in comparison in
several areas. This site is well accessed by a younger generation who go
on their computers regularly.
"I'd just like to take a few seconds to extend my thanks on our recruitment efforts. Within one week we obtained over 100 resumes and have hired 4 different personnel. Once again, thanks for the support.
"We are extremely pleased with the service and have hired a person through your services. We would highly recommend this service to anyone looking to hire. Thanks. "
"We have received many resumes from our ad with OttawaJobShop.ca. We are still in the process of reviewing them and making our choices, but the results have been overwhelming, and we are very pleased with them.
"We held interviews yesterday and have hired someone to fill the position.
Our experience with OttawaJobShop.ca was a very pleasant surprise. As an organization our normal methods in the past for recruitment have been
through local news papers - ie: The Ottawa Citizen, etc. - which unfortunately turned out to be an expensive route considering the limited results achieved. With Ottawa Job Shop we had numerous applications.
We will most definitely utilize your services in the future.
"My experience at OttawaJobShop certainly has exceeded my expectations. It
has been my primary resource for recruiting painters in my company. Not
only that, but I have recommended it to other managers in the area in hopes
that they, too, will find success.
I receive notices from interested painters on average twice a week, which
allows for a steady stream of interviews for me. It has allowed me to focus
more on producing jobs than recruiting. It has made it so much easier on
me. You're doing a fine job!
Thank you for your personal effects and the great job you're doing at

Student Works Painting
"I was satisfied with the experience. Several candidates who seemed suitable
came in for formal applications, I have selected a candidate who I believe
is suitable for the position.
I greatly enjoyed the ease of handling the info from candidates thanks to
the bulk of responses were electronic, the less paper, the better, and
when I wanted to recover some info about a person, I could easily do so.
I was also greatly impressed with the speed of the entire process. I had a
14 day notice from the person who vacated the position I needed to fill, and I
actually had a candidate for the position within 16 days. I had never ever
been able to fill a vacancy that quickly.
I received replys from candidates within one hour of the posting. I will
definitely use this medium again in the future."
"Our resume search went VERY well. I can safely say that your company has
exceeded all expectations. Michelle was very nice through the start up and all had been wonderful.
I must also say thank you for the great price on the ad. I am only able to
run ad's that are affordable, and your's really was. It was less than half
price of what other online job boards charges for an ad. I know it was a special offer
and I hope to see more in the future!"
HR Assistant, First Credit Union
"Your site has increased my knowledge about working with internet sites and has been very helpful for me.
I have a few job openings now to look into besides frying hambergers.
I also feel a lot more comfortable with using the internet which I have had but not used much.
Your layout is simple to fill out and use with little to no guess work and it works nicely. Thanks"
"I must say that I tried Monster.com before I used your service and I found your service far better.
Because of your ad, I had about 8 qualified people (after I short listed) that I interviewed and I recently hired one of them.
I think your website works very well at an affordable price. If I have another opening, I will not hesitate to post it with your company again."
Director of Sales, Russell A. Farrow Limited
"I have run 3 ads on your site. I can only say that I was truly amazed. The first ad received results in hours and I received about 40
responses. I hired a respondent from this group. The second ad had even a greater response about 109 responses and still
going. I hired a respondent from this group. These 2 ads were for office personnel. In the 40 years I have been hiring people I have never seen a response
like this. I have and will continue to tell everyone that this is by far the best way to fill many job positions."
"I was laid off. My job search was long and very depressing at times.
My unemployment was running out so I made arrangements to go back to school and make a major career change at age 26.
Trying not to give up hope (and trying to stay in the field that I love) I checked out your job listings and
applied to a position. 2 hours later I got a phone call to come in for an interview. Needless to say the interview went
extremely well (it lasted 2 and a half hours), and got a job offer to start [in two days].
Thank you so much for being another source for people to find meaningful employment."
"Am I pleased w/ the service i received???? YES!!!! & the results are OUTSTANDING!!!!!!
They say "never say NEVER?!?!?!?" I'M saying, (to misquote Sir Winston Churchill)
"NEVER, EVER AGAIN will I EVER!!!!!! put an ad in a newpaper for help wanted! I've been using your site since Dec. 1999 & have ALWAYS been successful!
(well, once there was this ONE moron!!) The quality of the responses is MUCH better (probably by a factor of at least 3x) than any newspaper ad & I don't have to deal w/ the usual "dolts" at some paper.
I'm very pleased & I sing the praises of your site every chance I get. Many thanks.
"I heard an ad on the radio a Tuesday. That night I looked at your site, and saw an
opening for an office assistant. The requirements were a match to my resume.... The company called me the next morning
asking when I could interview. We met that day. We spoke again Thursday, and they hired me Friday.
I'm delighted! More and better hours, and benefits after 90 days. It is exactly what I've been looking for for four years!"
Thanks for your service, and a word of encouragment to job seekers:
Never give up and don't sell yourself short!
"We love this site!!! Since placing our ad, we have had
132 hits on just one of our ads with a dozen interview submissions. That's
about a 10% return rate! We are thrilled! Thanks!"
"I have been thrilled with the results. I am a new recruiter for Fleet and
the hiring managers cannot believe how many candidates I am providing to them. I
am currently in discussions with the district managers to pursuade them to
continue the add for a pipeline of candidates for current and future openings."
"Just want to thank you for this service. Started looking for a job last week,
sent out six resumes via attachment, got three interviews, and was hired today! A really great job too.
This was so much faster than the newspapers, most of whom I haven't even heard from yet.
Wonderful way to job hunt! Keep it up!"
"Thank you for your obvious dedication to providing the best possible
customer service. So far we have found your company to be a valuable
alternative to print advertising. We have already hired a couple of new
employees who located us through your website and hope that this is just the
beginning. As a small company we greatly appreciate the lower cost of your
service as compared to newspaper classified ads."

"Just wanted to give my thanks to your service. I posted
my resume less than two weeks ago and landed the first job that I submitted
my resume for. I was wondering if you were looking for a freelance salesman,
because I've been pitching your service to everybody I know now! :) I hope
I DON'T have to use your service again, but if I do, I'll have great
William P. Murray
"I am very impressed with the service I have received from your company. This says nothing of how well your advertisement media has benefited our
efforts to contact quality applicants for the positions we had available in our company. I have been taking care of the employment advertisement
for our company for over 3 years now and have not found any media that has brought me the quantity let alone the quality of applicants that yours
has. Cost....well what can I say. Cost effective is an understatement to say the least. I have been so impressed by your services that I have placed several ads on your
other RegionalHelpWanted.com sites around the country as well as another ad on your site.
Thank you for the fax that opened the door to doing business with you."
"I just wanted to let you know that I just deleted my resume due to securing the position
I wanted. I wish I had know of this method of job search before and heartily recommend this to others. Not only did I get
the position I wanted but I received several other very interesting calls inviting me to consider positions they had open
as well. This is great and so much easier than "pounding the street" hoping to find something."
Thanks for everything,
"THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP, COULD I HELP YOU? I have been advertising on your website for a week now.
I am sooooo pleased. I have filled three positions with candidates responding to our posted advertisements. The resumes I am receiving are fabulous.
I even have Companies calling finding us about our services. I'm soooo excited."
Professional Profiles in Staffing
"It's actually been amazing! I was so flooded with responses during the first
two weeks that I ran my first ad that I cancelled it the third week, and I've hired someone who is starting tomorrow.
For my second ad, one for part-time teachers, I have also been surprised. At this time of year I rarely get applications
for teaching positions but, by using your web site, I'm getting around three a day."
Thanks for your help!
"I have really gotten a great response from the ad that I posted. I have not yet had a hire, but there a couple of people still in the works. You
all have been very helpful and very user-friendly. My recruiting area encompasses 8 other cities and I plan to use the RegionalHelpWanted.com sites in all
available cities. I have also sent out an email to fellow recruiters in other states to tell them about my success and told them to check it out!!"
"So far, your organization seems to be right on the mark! We had serveral excellent responses
from our first posting, and are now on our second. The system works well, easy to use, very affordable, and your introductory
ads on radio are excellent attention getters! We also use monster.com for some recruiting, and while they have great brand name
recognition, you have a more user friendly system. Good luck and I hope your service does well, for all our sakes!"

"I am very pleased with your service. You beat the pants off the local newspaper. The last time I sought an employee I went into the local
paper, spent a fortune and got NOBODY!! I NOW HAVE SIX QUALIFIED APPLICANTS TO CHOOSE FROM, AND I STILL HAVE THREE WEEKS LEFT TO RUN!! I am also
impressed with the frequency of your radio ads. Whenever I need an employee I will certainly use your service!!"
THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
President, Rainbow Jewelers
"I checked the ads on Monday, placed my resume, Tuesday got a call back and
had my first interview, Wednesday had my second interview and was offered a job. This is the best way to get a job ever.
I have encouraged all my friends and family to try it. I think that it's wonderful and I thank you for providing such a service.
"We have made a job offer and it has been accepted! The candidate viewed the ad using
your service. We will absolutely use your service in the future especially to recruit IS staff."
National Preferred Provider Network
"We were extremely pleased at the response from posting on your website. As a matter of fact, I'm forwarding your
website information to my HR partners in our Marketing organization. Hopefully, they will have some success as well."
"We have had wonderful success with this ad. So much better than an ad in the newspapers. I have informed our other managers
to consider using this method for future employment opportunities. The caliber and number of applicants exceeded our
expectations. And we have settled on a few contenders that will fit well within our organization."
"Although I have been offered a very good position with my "search,"
I would like to remain on your records, as who knows what's up?.... Thank you for your
consideration, caring, and concern.... I truly appreciate your efforts, and regardless
of my own results and/or successes, I intend to use your services for friends and family members."
"I have been posting job online with your service for 1 month now. To tell you the truth I have had a great response. I receive an email at least
once a day from someone responding to one of my ads. I find it very easy to post an ad and to view all resumes. I wanted to let you know that I am
pleased with your service and will continue posting jobs online."
Customer Service Manager
Adecco Employment Services
"I have not had a chance to view the ad yet, as I have been getting so many
resumes in response to it!!!... We will certainly use your service in the future. Thanks, again."
"I just placed a help wanted ad and wanted to tell you how easy and intuitive
I found your post an ad fill-in pages. Not only does your site look attractive without being too busy, but I was pleased to be able to view the
ad as it would appear immediately after putting in my information and then when I wanted to edit it, the back button actually worked! (so often sites
don't reload your information and you have to start all over again.) The ads look professional as laid out on the screen and then if it does the job
for us, the cost for placement is very reasonable."
