Auto Dealers Look Online To Attract Employees


To help auto dealers recruit employees via the Web, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) has launched a an online interactive job board, Automotive Careers Online.
The site is similar to other career job boards, such as Monster.com or Careerbuilder.com, but is tailored only to dealership positions.
“With a focus exclusively on careers available at new car and truck dealerships, the Web site offers both job seekers and dealers an easy way to connect online,” says NADA Chairman Annette Sykora.
Dealers can quickly post and manage their job listings online and have access to a searchable resume database.
Dealers can view applications and receive e-mail alerts when qualified candidates post a resume.
And job seekers can post resumes free on the site.
Job seekers will get automatic e-mail notification when their resume matches a dealership’s job criteria.
A recent poll sponsored by Automotive Retailing Today, an educational consortium of automakers and dealers, reported more than 100,000 jobs available at U.S. dealerships today.
And they’re not limited to one department.
Many dealerships need personnel in sales, automotive service, administration, parts and service.
“Having the right people in the right positions makes the difference,” says John Lyboldt, NADA vice president of dealer services.
“A presence on the Web allows people to look at our industry and find out what career opportunities are out there.”
NADA, founded in 1917 and based in McLean, Va., represents about 20,000 new-car and truck dealerships with nearly 43,000 separate franchises, both domestic and import.
