And leading the efforts is founder and president, Doug Geinzer
Through Recruiting Nevada
, which attracts jobseekers in career fields across the board to Nevada job postings on www.RecruitingNevada.com, Geinzer
has been working to fill open Nevada jobs with quality professionals since the company's inception.
But although his
mission to serve Nevada has been steadfast, his
avenues of accomplishing this have seen much evolution.
"There's a reason we've been able to survive and thrive for 15 years," Geinzer
"Other than our mission, 'change' has been our only constant.
In late 2006, Geinzer launched a Nevada-focused blog to serve as a "one-stop shop" resource for recruiters focusing on the Nevada marketplace and found almost immediate success.
Geinzer also serves as chairman of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce's We Care Committee, which works to support teachers as well as their family members, as they move to Nevada through programs such as the Trailing Spouse program.
has also served as the chairperson of the recruitment task force of the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition
for the past four years.
This task force is composed of human resource directors and recruiters from all area hospitals and medical facilities.
The group travels outside of Nevada to markets such as California and Chicago to recruit nurses to relocate to Nevada.
In addition to the company's strategic partnerships, Geinzer
has also continued to improve the efficiency of the already-successful online job boards.
After condensing the company's 10 previously separate industry-specific employment Web sites into one, www.RecruitingNevada.com, Geinzer
then honed the site to include a candidate matching feature, which allows Recruiting Nevada
to deliver its clients candidates matched with the precision of a headhunter while maintaining the pricing of a "help wanted" ad.
Most recently, Recruiting Nevada
partnered with California-based Vcruit
to offer video recruitment ads to help their client businesses further introduce their company and its culture to potential employees.
(vcruit.com), businesses can upload professional quality videos about their companies to enhance their profile.
Video will also be incorporated into Recruiting Nevada's new relocation page as well to provide jobseekers with information on the quality of life Nevada offers.
"We're always looking for new ways to attract not just more, but the best, people to Nevada," Geinzer
So what does 2008 hold for Geinzer
and Recruiting Nevada?
As of yet, only Geinzer knows.
The college offers a low student-to-professor ratio and competitive tuition rates and provides progressive bachelor's programs in areas such as nursing, teaching and engineering - critical areas that will only demand an increased number of quality, trained professionals in the next few years, according to Doug Geinzer, founder and president of Recruiting Nevada.
Working toward the same goal of filling jobs in Nevada's weakest points of employment with trained professionals - but from a recruitment standpoint - Recruiting Nevada publishes the state's largest Nevada-specific employment Web site, RecruitingNevada.com
"Nevada was the country's fastest growing state for almost 20 years before Arizona took its place, and now Nevada is No. 1 again," said Geinzer
, who has been working on the frontline to strengthen Nevada's economy through socially responsible recruiting since 1993.
But regardless of individual accomplishments, it's really all about working together, Geinzer
"Even with all the sponsors in the world, career fairs wouldn't be successful if businesses didn't participate through setting up booths," he
