We've been working very closely for many years. With the current economic climate, there has been a increased demand for career services. We're going to pool our resources now and start pulling in the same direction.

Land That Job! today announced the acquisition of CareerAssist. The two sites have had a close partnership for many years. While Land That Job! has focused on self serve career resources such libraries for sample resumes and cover letters, CareerAssist has offered professional resume writing and critique services.
"It just made a lot of sense to consolidate the 2 businesses," comments managing partner Malcolm Chlan. "We've been working very closely for many years. With the current economic climate, there has been a increased demand for career services. We're going to pool our resources now and start pulling in the same direction."
The new company will operate as landjob.com and will focus on platform development and content aggregation. "We want to help promote content and services of the best resume writers and career coaches out there while providing the world's best resources to educational and government institutions," says Chlan
After providing a paid career resource package for many years, Land That Job has dramatically changed their business model in the past 16 months. The site opened up all of the resume and cover letter content, added job listings and created widgets for 3rd parties to begin using both job content and resume content for free.
Resume writers and career coaches can now publish examples of their work with Land That Job which will in turn promote them via 3rd parties using the Landjob widgets.
