DETROIT, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Hired on the Spot, an innovative job placement service for job seekers, employers and recruiters, has announced that it has been chosen by Fox 2 Detroit to power the resume section of the Job Shop on myFoxDetroit.com. Use of Hired on the Spot enables Fox 2 Detroit to offer its users access to more job opportunities and the ability to take advantage of Hired on the Spot's unique approach to the job search challenge which incorporates social networking, blogging, and viral marketing to maximize visibility and encourage differentiation from other job seekers.

"Our mission is to help people find employment and powering the Fox 2 Detroit Job Shop enables us to expand access for our users," said Ben Riggan, Chief Executive Officer of Hired on the Spot. "When you post a resume on either the Fox 2 Detroit Job Shop or at Hired on the Spot it will now appear on both sites. You'll be reaching more potential employers and recruiters than ever before."

Hired on the Spot emphasizes use of today's technology to enhance the job hunt experience. Job seekers can create comprehensive employment profiles on the Hired on the Spot Web site. The company advocates a "Resume Revolution," emphasizing that an individual's uniqueness can't be reduced to a traditional resume alone. Resumes are created using a proprietary quick-search format highlighting skills, employment history and education. Responses to open-ended questions such as "Why am I a great employee?" highlight additional characteristics and attributes. Candidates also create video resumes and blogs. To enhance their visibility, they order t-shirts imprinted with their resume.

"The Job Shop on MyFoxDetroit.com strives to provide its website users with the best services available," said Dennis Kraniak, Senior Web Producer at Fox 2.  "Hired on the Spot goes beyond the traditional but ineffective job board strategies that focus on posting resumes and searching online databases. We endorse the action-oriented approach as an effective way for people to market themselves in today's ultra competitive job market."
