Grand Opening Press Release
NWIHelpWanted.com to Launch as First Website Focused Solely on Jobs in Northwest Indiana
October 1, 2015 – Valparaiso, IN – NWIHelpWanted.com, the first website focused solely on jobs in Northwest Indiana, has announced an October 16th grand opening. The website, owned by entrepreneurs Michael and Janet Miller of Valparaiso, will feature job posts exclusively for positions in the region.
The website offers a simple interface for connecting businesses to job seekers, who are able to apply for positions without leaving the site. The business also advertises open positions across social media channels and already boasts a large audience on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms. The site was designed and built by local provider Catalyst Tech Solutions.
“It is our intention to bring job seekers and employers in the region together,” said founder Michael Miller, “we have identified a gap in the market between ineffective public sites and extremely costly national sites that place local job posts in the Chicago market. We believe Northwest Indiana is a separate employment market and deserves a job posting site that isn’t flooded with Chicago job posts.”
The business is offering highly discounted job posts, including some free options, as part of its Grand Opening. Miller continued, “We recognize that we will not have the web traffic we desire until we have solid jobs to advertise, and we cannot expect our customers to pay full price until we have delivered on our promise to attract quality, local candidates. In light of this, we will offer various discounts in our first quarter of operation. Our commitment to customer service is one of the foundational advantages NWIHelpWanted.com will enjoy.”
In addition to “exceptional customer service”, NWIHelpWanted.com will compete with large national sites by offering lower prices, 35 day job posts, and a heavy usage of social media. Digital advertising will also be available on the site.
“The regionally focused model has proven itself throughout the country with sites like DesMoinesHelpWanted.com,” said Miller, “we feel the same approach in Northwest Indiana will be an advantage to both the employer and the job seeker. The enthusiastic response we are seeing is evidence of this.”
The site will be free to job seekers, users will be able to view and apply to jobs at no cost and without creating a user account.
