NY (July 24th, 2002) - Got a question? Don’t pick up the phone; get online! StarChefs has recently rolled out yet another service to make their Culinary JobFinder more useful and efficient for hospitality industry employers and jobseekers: LiveHelp. StarChefs has been at the forefront of trends in the hospitality industry and ahead of its competitors with technological advances since its 1995 inception, and continues to demonstrate its commitment to becoming the premier employment services platform for the hospitality industry by making its JobFinder easier to use. Now, employers and jobseekers can ask for help online instead of wasting time and money with a long distance phone call to customer service.
Says Antoinette Bruno, CEO of StarChefs, “We thought that since our JobFinder saves busy hospitality professionals time already, we’d up the ante…now they can easily log on to our LiveHelp online to make their user experience seamless.” StarChefs’ new LiveHelp was implemented as a part of an ongoing series of updates to the JobFinder to help more hospitality professionals find better employees more quickly and with less effort. StarChefs’ continued efforts have paid off: the company has developed partnerships with and found employees for some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry, such as the James Beard Foundation, Sodexho, Sheraton, Daniel Boulud, and Bobby Flay.
StarChefs’ Culinary JobFinder offers similar proprietary technology and services as other job sites such as Monster.com and Hotjobs.com but limits itself to its specialty: the hospitality industry. In addition to the new LiveHelp function, StarChefs’ updated JobFinder now provides users with candidate pre-screening, account statistics reports to measure posting usage and efficiency, automatic alerts with qualified candidates, password recovery, and cross-posting access to a network of 15 other job sites. The site also offers no-charge services to help both employers and job seekers through the hiring process.
