Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) December 21, 2006
CareerBoard.com and Computerwork.com's parent company, JobServe.com, is on the move again with the acquisition of Canadian job site JobShark.com. This continues JobServe's interest in North America, following the recent US purchase of ComputerJobs.com and establishment of JobServe USA.
JobShark.com was founded in 1997 and quickly became one the most popular job boards in Canada. The site now has nearly 1 million registered users and more than 4 million visitors a year.
"We are all very excited about the recent acquisition of JobShark. We are adding another strong board with dynamic technology to the family of JobServe sites," Founder of CareerBoard and CEO of JobServe USA, Peter Tuttle, said.
JobShark's newest accomplishment is the development of a sophisticated skills profiling and targeting tool, known as "Jaws." This unique recruiting tool accurately matches candidates to vacancies, keeping the Ontario-based company at the forefront of an ever evolving market.
Robbie Cowling, founder and Managing Director of JobServe said, "JobShark is a fantastic company and like us has a strong job seeker focus. We will look to share their knowledge across the group to further improve the performance of our other websites." He added, "I am determined to establish a strong presence for JobServe in North America and we warmly welcome the JobShark team to our group."
JobServe, formed in 1993, cut its teeth providing a service for IT contractors looking for contract work but quickly grew into one of the UK's most successful businesses offering jobs across many sectors of the market. The company has continued to grow worldwide with the acquisition of Australian job board JOBNET in 2002, and United States' sites CareerBoard, Computerwork and Computerjobs in 2006.
JobShark Corporation is a leader in on-line career recruitment technology that seeks and matches corporate job requirements to the most suitable candidates. With sales and service offices located across Canada, JobShark is the first Internet-based Canadian company to provide a complete on-line recruiter and job seeker package.
