Toronto, ON and Stamford, CT (PRWEB) June 29, 2009
Upstart Canadian job search engine Eluta.ca has been named one of the world's 100 best employment sites by the key reference guide to the online employment industry. The selection was made from over 10,000 job sites profiled by Connecticut-based Weddle's LLC, the largest publisher of print and online guides in the field.
"We're tremendously pleased with this endorsement," says Kim Peters, President of Eluta Inc., "especially coming from the people who know our industry best. It's a badge of honor for Eluta.ca, which just celebrated its 3rd anniversary." The Weddle's guide has been in publication for almost 15 years and is considered the industry's gold standard.
"Our Top 100 employment sites are the elite of the job board industry," says Weddle's Publisher Peter Weddle. "They have the strongest brands, the best services and the most distinguished track records of the sites we've seen on the Web. Are there other good sites out there? Of course. But the Top 100 selectees are truly in a class of their own."
The list of the 100 best sites is included in Weddle's new 2009/10 Guide to Employment Sites on the Internet, described as the "Zagat" of the online employment industry by the American Staffing Association.
Eluta.ca is a new search engine that specializes in finding jobs in Canada directly from employers' websites. Using proprietary algorithms, the site lets job-seekers bypass traditional job boards to find new postings on thousands of employer websites. Eluta.ca is also the exclusive online home of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project, managed by Eluta's parent company, and is the only place online where job-seekers can read the reasons for choosing the winning employers. Over 560,000 unique job-seekers used Eluta.ca in the month of January 2009, according to comScore Inc.
