PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Poachedjobs.com, the industry-leading hospitality jobs board, is going national. In 2012, Poached launched in Portland and Seattle. With its initial markets growing quickly, Poached added more cities to its site. Soon Poached was helping restaurants hire in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“We started with a city-by-city approach to growth,” said CEO and Co-Founder Kirk Thornby. “We wanted boots on the ground as we learned how to build a service that best addressed the needs of the hospitality industry. Now that we’ve taken those lessons and applied them, we’re ready to work with restaurants, bars and hotels on a national scale.”
The hospitality industry has an employee turnover rate of over 70% and rising. Finding skilled workers is a major pain point for nearly all restaurants, bars and hotels. Poached is solving this issue with its jobs board as well as its mix of tools and resources built to streamline the hiring process for owners, managers and job hunters alike. By developing features for both sides of the hiring equation, Poached is known to both employers and workers as the food and drink industry’s #1 job site.
Poached attracts talented culinary professionals from coast to coast through a mixture of word of mouth, social media, content and search marketing. Poached also connects to culinary schools, sponsors events and runs its own culinary scholarship programs – making it the go-to destination to find the best jobs.
Another source of traffic is the Poached Partner Network. When a job is posted on Poached and requires further promotion, it’s automatically added to a partner jobs board, giving the listing maximum visibility.
Now that Poached is national, that means workers and employers will have an even easier time connecting – removing one of the growing hospitality industry’s greatest pain points.
Poachedjobs.com makes hiring and getting hired quicker, easier and better for everyone. Founders Kirk Thornby and Peter Bro recognized generic job boards were not delivering the candidates restaurants needed, so they started Poached. Their vision became a reality and quickly spread from coast to coast.
