Monday, April 16th, 2012

HireGreeks.com is a new site that aims to connect people with Tampa jobs, specifically fraternity and sorority members, and in other locations as well.

According to its website, employers wanting to use the site are not required to be an alumnus of any fraternity or sorority. Any employer seeking to fill jobs or internships can use the site to interact with current or alumni members of fraternities and sororities.

Employers can now strategically focus on a narrow but extremely talented group of professionals by posting jobs and internships on HireGreeks.com, offering them to recruit directly out of fraternities and sororities across the United States.

“We are seeing companies both large and small returning to college campuses in hopes of getting ahead of future staffing demands across all sectors. We believe this will quickly create another extremely competitive market place for top talent. In addition to campus career fairs, social media websites, and traditional job portals, employers serious about hiring top talent will need to use HireGreeks.com to engage with students across the US all year long from freshman to senior year levels,” says founder Brian Murphy.

Employers can search for members of the website by school, fraternity or sorority affiliation, location, industry, experience, and availability. Once viewing a member’s profile and resume, employers can send a personal message. Members can also send messages to employers. HireGreeks.com allows employers to track the views and edit the job postings at any time.
