Crewtoo said it has launched an online maritime jobs board as a direct response to requests from its members, who have continuously pinpointed recruitment as one of their main priorities.
Crewtoo, which has more than 100,000 members and was founded by KVH Media Group, part of KVH Industries, Inc., (NASDAQ: KVHI), premiered the service in Stamford, Connecticut.
The Crewtoo jobs board is integrated into the Crewtoo site and enables seafarers to simply change a setting on their profile to state that they are available for work; they are then prompted to fill in their full employment details on the site and upload their current CV/resume. For the seafarer, membership to the popular social network remains free of charge and, even before the jobs board launch, thousands of seafarers had already taken the opportunity to complete their jobs profile.
