Voices.com job notifications

You might have noticed that some of the emails you are receiving from Voices.com with regard to invitations to jobs have a new look!

Today's VOX Daily will discuss what has changed and how these changes will benefit you.

New Features Include:

๏ Title of Job and Job ID are displayed within the colored banner.
๏ Key information has been summarized for quick scanning.
๏ A "Reply to Job" button enabling immediate access to the full job posting details.
๏ A "Contact Us" link now graces the banner at the bottom.

What's Different?

๏ Public Jobs have the blue banner.
๏ Private Jobs have the green banner.
๏ Private invitations to Public Jobs now have a green banner. These kind of invitations are sent when a client posts a Public Job but then uses the search engine, directory or Top 100 to handpick more talent and invite them specifically to reply to their job posting.

In other words, a blue banner lets you know that the invitation to that particular job is a Public Job posting and a green banner lets you know that you have been singled out to audition for the job whether it be a Private Job posted or a Public Job.

New Job Invitation Subject Headlines

There are only three headlines that you'll be seeing as they pertain to job posting invitations. If you are receiving an invitation to a Public Job posting, the headline will read:

New Job at Voices.com

If you are receiving a Private invitation to a Public Job, you will see:

New Private Invitation to a Job at Voices.com

If you have been handpicked to audition by the client to audition for a Private Job, the invitation will read:

New Private Job Invitation at Voices.com

We've also added quick links at the top of each email to stay up to date on news, events, special offers and product releases. If you haven't done so yet, you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Here's What The Emails Look Like

To give you a better idea of what these email invitations look like, we've created a few screenshots illustrating how the three different kinds of invitations appear.

    What will the Subject lines say? I've setup a filter that alerts me when the subject matches "New Private Invitation at Voices.com. Will that still be valid?

      Hi Mike,

      Thank you for commenting and for your question. There are 3 headlines that you'll be seeing as they pertain to job posting invitations.

      If you are receiving an invitation to a Public Job posting, the headline will read:

      New Job at Voices.com

      If you are receiving a Private invitation to a Public Job, you will see:

      New Private Invitation to a Job at Voices.com

      If you have been handpicked by the client to audition for a Private Job, the invitation will read:

      New Private Job Invitation at Voices.com

      You might want to change the rules for your filters to include exact wording for the private jobs.

      I hope that helps!

      Best wishes,

      Stephanie

        The "Reply to Job" button is a brilliant idea. When job alerts come in, I go to the site and have no idea which is the job that was listed in my email.

        Really like the button idea. It'll save lots of time! :D

        Glad I understand the scheme behind these private invites as well (knowing that there are two types). I received one and when I finally found the job in the listing, there were 400+ people after it!

        Take care.

          This is a fantastic step in the right direction.

          Additional Suggestion: Could there be a code in the subject line to let us know what type of job is being offered. For instance, a new job invitation for an audiobook would have an "A" at the end of the subject line. E-learning could have an E and so on. Opening a mailbox to an entire page of opportunities that all have the same heading and I know that I am only going to respond to IVR or commercials is frustrating. That last sentence is an understatement.
