While pundits can make their own picks, it’s the job seekers and employers who really know best which sites are the elite among the job board community on the Web.
Lake Worth, FL (Vocus) February 1, 2010
WEDDLE's, the largest publisher of print guides to job boards, announced the winners of its 2010 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 fourth year in a row.
"You’d have to be living in a distant galaxy to be unaware of how hard it is to find a job these days. More than 10% of the American workforce is unemployed, and that number rises to almost 20% of the population if you count those who have given up.
There’s no easy fix to this situation, but knowing which resources work best is a step in the right direction. That’s why WEDDLE’s, a research and publishing company that specializes in employment, is pleased to announce the winners of its 2010 User’s Choice Awards. They are simply the best employment sites on the Web, at least according to job seekers and employers."
WEDDLE’s, the leading publisher of print guides to the 100,000+ job boards now operating on the Internet, has conducted the poll since 2004. It is open to everyone who visits the WEDDLE’s site, and enables them to select those job boards they think serve them best. The top 30 vote getters are then named the User’s Choice Award winners each year.
“We think customers count most,” says WEDDLE’s Publisher and CEO, Peter Weddle. “While pundits can make their own picks, it’s the job seekers and employers who really know best which sites are the elite among the job board community on the Web." The voting was conducted at the WEDDLE’s Web-site from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. The thousands of job seekers and employers who cast their ballots were a representative cross-section of the American workforce.
51% were male, 49% were female
43% were Baby Boomers, 41% were GenXers, and 16% were Millennials.
The ballots were tallied in early January, and the top thirty (30) vote-getters were declared the 2010 winners.
"We're truly honored to have been selected four 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 hard work of our team, and the passion of our many satisfied users. We are also very excited about the many projects that we have in place for 2010 that should further enhance our excellent standing with clients and job seekers that use our site."
The winners include 19 niche sites that specialize in a particular career field, industry, geographic location or personal attribute, and 11 are all-purpose sites that serve job seekers and employers in a wide range of professions, crafts, trades and industries. Among the niche sites, 4 focus on healthcare, 3 serve recent college graduates and/or alumni, 3 specialize in senior level workers, and 2 serve special cohorts of the workforce (DiversityJobs.com and VetJobs.com). Also among the niche sites, 6 industries are represented: healthcare, retail, information systems, hospitality, logistics and staffing.
