EXPANDING JOB MARKET CREATES COLOSSAL GROWTH FOR JOB.COM
December 27, 2006
Fredericksburg, VA - December 27, 2006 - Job.com announced today that comScore Media Metrix, a leader in Internet audience measurements, released a monthly analysis ranking Job.com eighth out of the top 10 gaining properties on the Internet in October. The analysis was published early November, revealing Job.com’s substantial increase in traffic between the months of September and October.
"Now that the job market is improving, job seekers are taking a more aggressive approach to managing their careers," commented Brian Alden, President and CEO of Job.com. "Both active and passive job seekers are visiting Job.com to see what opportunities may arise."
There is no doubt that recent job growth has motivated individuals to assess their current employment situation. The month of October brought 4.1 million unique visitors to Job.com, up 109 percent versus the same month last year, according to comScore Media Metrix.
Although the easing economy has contributed to an increase in Job.com’s total unique visitors, comScore Media Metrix data also showed Job.com to be the fourth most visited site in the Career Services category for seven consecutive months, from May through November 2006. This strong, yet steady momentum has allowed Job.com to capture more market share, while its major competitors have remained stagnant in their rankings.
"As the U.S. employment situation remains stable, Job.com’s employer and job seeker database continues to grow," continued Alden, "Employer and recruiter memberships have sky-rocketed, while the number of resume postings has reached an all time high. We’re currently preparing for peak, job hunting season where we anticipate even greater volumes of traffic. Throughout this time of economic development, Job.com looks forward to resuming its mission of connecting well qualified candidates with employers and recruiters."
