Each site provides outstanding functionality and user experience for employers and hiring managers. Employers can use advanced features to source candidates such as resume search and matching, standard and premium job listings and fully-branded featured campaigns. Candidate shortlists and applications are managed via the Employer Services section to keep track of all positions of interest. Additional branding opportunities are also available for employers to increase brand awareness and attract further applications. In addition to reaching the targeted communities, employers can cross-post job listings to all three sites to maximize their potential return on investment.

With thousands of jobs already online, candidates are able to search via keywords, location, job disciplines, specialties and salary range. To keep up-to-date with the latest jobs added to the job sites candidates can create email alerts by following the simple two-step registration process. Creating a user profile takes seconds with easy resume uploading and a straightforward application process. To ensure candidates can search for their next career opportunity from any location the job site is fully mobile-enabled engaging candidates on desktop, laptop, smartphones and tablets.
“The scientific, medical and healthcare communities already rely on Springer for research and con-necting to others in their respective fields through various niche scientific social networking sites,” said Ray Colón, Director of eProduct Management at Springer. “Our goal with these job sites is to complement our existing online offerings, by giving these scientific communities trusted destinations to post science and medical job openings specifically aimed at researchers and scientists that visit SpringerLink.com and other Springer platforms.”
