Two of America’s fastest growing web sites are now joining forces and at the same time, helping people who are unemployed network for new jobs.

In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Geebo.com has joined forces with VolunteerMatch.org to promote volunteerism and strengthen communities across our nation.

This arrangement will make http://www.Geebo.com the first classified advertising web site to publish volunteer opportunities from http://www.Volunteermatch.org.

“We are excited about this new opportunity to work with VolunteerMatch.org to help build and support communities,” said Geebo.com CEO Greg Collier. “Volunteer opportunities will be a great addition to the array of ads we carry on Geebo.com. Not only does volunteerism strengthen and revitalize our communities, but in this time of high unemployment, volunteering may also give the individual jobseeker new ways to connect with organizations – perhaps even getting a foot in the door that could lead to a new job down the road.”

Alongside its extensive listings of jobs and other community classified ads, Geebo.com will now include volunteer opportunity listings from VolunteerMatch.org. The arrangement will add value for Geebo.com’s users while extending VolunteerMatch.org’s reach to potential volunteers across the United States.

Geebo.com has a long history of extraordinary community support. The company offers free postings to nonprofits and provides a high level of safeguards to protect users from illegal and dangerous activity. Geebo.com has also made donations to local charities, provided free advertising for causes such as the Katrina disaster, Samoa Tsunami and Haiti Earthquake relief efforts, and even waived its $75 employer job posting fees during a period of particular national economic challenge.

“While our focus at Geebo.com is classified advertising, we have always been intentional about supporting positive community activities, providing exceptional value, and contributing in meaningful ways to the 145 cities we serve across America,” Collier says.

Geebo.com provides local residents with a simple, effective way to buy a home, sell a car, find a job, and now volunteer in the community. This fast-growing and popular site is free to individual users; a word we all appreciate these days.

Geebo.com staff carefully monitors posting activity to make the user experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. Because Geebo.com is relatively inexpensive for employers, it has carved out a niche with 18 – 34 year olds, and in entry-to-midlevel job advertisements.

In order to provide the greatest possible value to users, Geebo.com also has arrangements with Google, Myspace, Twitterjobsearch, Tweetmart, Diversityjobs, Indeed.com, and others. These partnerships enable Geebo.com to provide more classified ads in every category, making Geebo.com’s search results richer.
