March 25, 2008
Fredericksburg, VA -- March 10, 2008 -- Job.com, the fourth most visited career site on the Internet, announced today that they were selected as a winner in Weddle's 2008 User's Choice Awards. The voting took place throughout 2007 on WEDDLE'S website where job seekers, recruiters and employers are invited to cast their ballots for their favorite job boards. The thirty sites with the most votes at the end of the year are declared the winners, and announced after the New Year, in mid February.
These awards are the only recognition in the $6+ billion global online employment services industry where actual users--job seekers, employers and recruiters--get to pick the winners. There are now over 40,000 employment-related sites operating in the U.S. alone, which include stand alone enterprises sites affiliated with newspapers, professional associations and trades, college and alumni organizations plus a wide array of many others. Like the Zagat restaurant guides, WEDDLE's publications and its annual User's Choice Awards help job seekers and recruiters make smart selections among all of those options.
"In today's challenging job market, it's important to know the All Stars of the job board community. That's what these 2008 User's Choice Awards winners represent," said WEDDLE's Publisher Peter Weddle. "Equally as important, they haven't been selected by a panel of pundits, but by the working men and women who use those sites to find jobs and hire new employees."
