FINDING A JOB IN OHIO JUST GOT A LITTLE EASIER
CareerBoard.com and LocalCareers.com announce their joint partnership
Cleveland – April 2, 2002 – CareerBoard.com, a regional online job search company that specializes in connecting local candidates with local employers, and LocalCareers.com, a network of local career sites throughout the United States including OhioJobs.com, has formed a partnership to provide local job seekers with increased employment opportunities, and companies with greater exposure for their postings.
The partnership significantly increases job seeker traffic for CareerBoard's Wisconsin-based clients, and expands services to all of Ohio. OhioJobs.com is now part of the CareerBoard.com network. All current and future employment listings found on OhioJobs.com will merge into the CareerBoard.com Web site.
"This arrangement puts us into a position to compete with national job boards, while maintaining the local and personal touch," said Peter Tuttle, president of CareerBoard.com. "Our alliance allows us to work together as one company to increase visibility for our clients and provide eager job seekers with a greater pool of local opportunity to tap into."
Companies can expect a considerable boost in job seeker traffic. The expanded networks currently receive 20 million hits per month, reach 250,000 unique visitors and post over 2,200 employer jobs. In Ohio, CareerBoard.com currently posts 1,300 jobs for over 300 Ohio-based companies.
"The strategic alliance will enable us to expand our 'local focus service' nationally," said Tuttle. "In the near term, our Ohio clients that have nationwide staffing needs will be able to post their out-of-state openings through CareerBoard.com to selected cities throughout the country."
Additionally, LocalCareers.com will market CareerBoard.com to the five states they currently serve: Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, Arizona, and California, bringing more jobs to Ohio job seekers.
CareerBoard.com and LocalCareers.com plan to utilize the local career network to expand CareerBoard operations in neighboring states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Indiana. Currently, CareerBoard's Milwaukee site, www.Milwaukee.CareerBoard.com, has merged into WiJobs.com, another site operated by LocalCareers.com.
