Lake Worth, FL (Vocus) March 11, 2008
WEDDLE's, the largest publisher of print guides to job boards, announced the winners of its 2008 User's Choice Awards. Absolutely Health Care, the largest niche job board for USA health care and medical jobs is pleased to receive this prestigious award for the second year in a row. These awards are the only recognition in the $6+ billion global online employment services industry where actual users such as job seekers, employers, and recruiters get to pick the winners.
"In today's challenging job market, it's important to know the All Stars of the job board community," said WEDDLE's Publisher Peter Weddle. "That's what these 2008 User's Choice Awards winners represent. Equally as important, they haven't been selected by a panel of pundits, but by the working men and women who use those sites to find jobs and hire new employees."
"We're truly honored to have been selected two years in a row from so many high quality sites," said Absolutely Health Care Founder Ken Levinson. "Across the Internet, there are many outstanding job boards serving the needs of job seekers, employers, and recruiters. To be recognized as one of the best of the best is a real testament to the the hard work of our team, and the passion of our many satisfied users."
According to Weddle's, there are now over 80,000 employment-related job boards, half of which operate in the U.S. and half elsewhere around the world. The job board sites include stand alone enterprises like Absolutely Health Care, and sites affiliated with newspapers and trade publications, professional associations and societies, college and trade school alumni organizations, radio and television stations, and a wide array of affinity groups. Like the Zagat restaurant guides, WEDDLE's publications and its annual User's Choice Awards help consumers make smart selections among all of those options.
Each year, the public is invited to visit the WEDDLE's Web-site and cast their ballots for their favorite job boards. The 30 sites with the most votes at the end of the year are declared the User's Choice Award winners. While clearly not a scientific survey, the poll does reflect the intensity of support sites enjoy among job seekers, employers and recruiters alike. A person has to take the time and make the effort to participate in the balloting, so those that do feel strongly about the sites they select.
One-third of the 2008 winners are general purpose job boards that serve a broad cross-section of professions, crafts, trades, industries and locations. The remaining two-thirds, including Absolutely Health Care, are niche sites that specialize in a specific industry, career field, or geographic location. All but one of the sites are based in the United States.
