Portland, OR – June 12, 2013 – Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) launched its DTNA Careers app for candidates interested in pursuing a career with the company. Positions across the company range from the factory to the office, including production, maintenance, engineering, IT, finance and controlling, sales, marketing, and supply chain management.
The DTNA Careers app features job search functionality, the ability to share jobs with friends, a calendar of events DTNA is attending, and high-level benefits and compensation information. It also highlights DTNA’s culture, showcasing employees on and off the clock with integrated videos.
“Our experience at job fairs showed us that people are turning to mobile devices in greater numbers to learn about job opportunities,” said Sheri Michalak, manager of talent acquisition at DTNA. “Innovation is in the company’s DNA, so even in Human Resources, we are constantly looking for new ways to do things. We have designed this app to engage job seekers so that they no longer have to search for us – we come to them. By downloading the app, they’re opting to become part of our talent community.”
While the free app is currently only offered for iOS products, the company plans to expand the app to other platforms in the future. The DTNA Careers app was created to complement more traditional approaches DTNA uses to reach potential job candidates, such as career fairs. In addition to people using the app for their job search, DTNA’s recruiters will use the app at career fairs and other recruiting events to highlight details of current job openings and provide insight to the company’s values and corporate culture. They can also quickly email a job to a candidate, prompting them to apply.
