Our Top 100 employment sites are the elite of the job board industry
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2009
ApartmentCareers.Com is pleased to announce that WEDDLE's LLC, the world's largest publisher of print guides to the 100,000+ job boards now operating on the Internet, has selected it as a Top 100 site. Called the "Zagat" of the online employment industry by the American Staffing Association, WEDDLE's released its selections in conjunction with the publication of its 2009/10 Guide to Employment Sites on the Internet.
Why should job seekers care about this news? Because job boards work.
•In a recent survey of 17,000+ working men and women, using a job board was identified as the single best way to find a job in today's tough environment. Over one-third of the respondents said they found their last job on a job board--more than four times greater than the next highest response--and almost two-thirds said they expected to find their next job that way.
•In the same survey, eight-out-of-ten employers said that new hires sourced online were among their best employees. For that reason, over a third of the respondents were filling half of their openings through job boards and over a quarter were actually filling three-quarters of their vacancies that way.
The challenge for working men and women and employers alike is figuring out which sites to use. The Top 100 list is one way to do that. The Guide describes each site in the Top 100 with a detailed profile of its services, features and fees for both job seekers and employers. It also includes a directory of over 10,000 other job boards organized by career field, industry and geographic focus.
"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."
"All of us at ApartmentCareers.Com are honored to be recognized and included in the WEDDLE's Top 100.
