Background on recommendations feature:
a. The Job seeker initiates form within the website by filling out a form which emails a past employer with a request to do a recommendation.
b. The employer clicks on the link and comes to a page on the website which they fill out.
c. The job seeker sees the recommendations listed similar to a comment at the bottom of their profile screen.
d. Employers that do resume search can now see those recommendations whenever they view a job seeker's details
1. Home page, should have the elements in the current home page:
- Call to action for Job seekers and Employers to signup (see current home page) Can be something that rotates or is static that leads to #2 below.
- login -> this module expands to become the user specific menu (please see attachment EmployerMenu.png below)
- featured employers
- Search bar
- Category and Location tabs
Category – should have 3 separate columns Retail, Food & Beverage, and Hospitality & Travel
Either the column or tab header should have a graphic that represents each category. The retail should have a mall floor plan graphic or theme. I am open for the others.
The Now Hiring sign should be present in header area, best if it looks like it’s hanging
2. Learn More / Tour page
This page summarizes the features of the site in a graphic/infographic style

Benefits for Job seeker:
- Request recommendations from past employers. This allows them to show their past performance and allow them to get better jobs AND better pay. (Some ideas are employers in the cloud with arrows coming down into the Job seeker's resume with check marks for each recommendation.)
- Search jobs focused only on Retail, F&B, and Hospitality without having to deal with thousands of jobs they are not interested in.
Benefits for Employers:
- A Platform that naturally attracts good talent since they are the ones motivated to let employers know how good they are.
- Can view job seekers' recommendations for better hiring decisions.
- Create a custom landing page (short cut) to their job listings which they can publish easily to other sources and even on signs that hang in their store. e.g. http://www.jobslah.com/go/YourCompanyName
For example, If company 99Designs has 3 job listings on our site they can tell people to goto JobsLah.com/go/99designs and the user will go directly to a page that contains those 3 job listings. Otherwise the user would have to goto the home page -> click on employer list menu -> search for 99designs -> then click on "company job's" link to see the same 3 job listings.
