Blackpool, Lancashire United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 13, 2007 -- BLACKPOOL, ENGLAND - Fat Cat Jobs is the first site to offer free video uploads for job postings and business opportunities, bringing job searching to the digital age.
Fat Cat Jobs (www.FatCatJobs.tv) began as a traditional job posting site, but creator Colin Rawlinson realized it could be much more. "When I got feedback from users, they said ads simply don't give you information about the work environment," says Rawlinson. "With video, job searchers and entrepreneurs can see beyond the responsibilities and requirements to see if they would truly fit with the company."
The site also offers users customizable views and the option to make videos public or private. Users can save favorites, make play lists and subscribe to specific member videos. Additionally, featured videos provide tips on interviewing, pitching ideas and more.
"Video recruits better qualified and more interested applicants," says Rawlinson, who founded the site in 2006. "Fat Cat Jobs gives users the resources they need to find the perfect opportunity, and employers see the difference."
Fat Cat Jobs also allows professionals to share videos by email, so videos are seen by friends and colleagues around the world. "It was something I wanted for myself," says Rawlinson. "There's finally a place to announce investment and business opportunities, while knowing how your potential partner communicates."
Fat Cat Jobs caters to the business sector, with moderators looking for inappropriate content such as personal videos or videos with nudity and violence. With no length or style limitations, users can post ads for investing, employment, partnership and other opportunities. Fat Cat Jobs users simply upload their video file and select its category, and they start receiving inquiries about their opportunity.
"More than anything, I wanted to make it easy to use," says Rawlinson. "Searching for a job, the right employee or an entrepreneurial opportunity can be exhausting. Fat Cat Jobs gets you to your goal, quick and upfront."
