The eMA partners with Headhunter.net

 

April 30, 2001 (Atlanta, GA) - Furthering its position as a leader in online recruiting for the sales and marketing industries, Headhunter.net (NASDAQ:HHNT), a leading national online recruiting and job awareness site, announced today co-branding partnerships with four sales and marketing web sites. Through the partnerships, Headhunter.net will provide direct access to its full menu of career services to users of the eMarketing Association (eMA), a professional association for companies involved in e-marketing, Marketing Sherpa, an online news source for marketers, SalesVault.com, a portal for sales professionals, and RepResources.com, a resource center for sales professionals.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, sales related jobs are expected to grow 15% by 2008, from 15,826,000 jobs in 1998 to an estimated 18,224,000. Additionally, a recent study conducted by a division of Management Recruiters International suggests that the demand for sales and marketing executives is high and the supply is running out. Headhunter.net's outreach to sales specific sites demonstrates its commitment to providing the industry with the most comprehensive career tools on the web.

"These increases are definitely in line with what we're seeing. In the past month, job postings on Headhunter.net in sales and marketing increased by 25%," said Matt Ferguson, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Headhunter.net. "The increased demand for quality sales and marketing professionals is a contributing factor to the changes we've seen in online recruiting. Where just a few years ago online recruiting focused on high tech jobs, today companies are using Headhunter.net for sales and marketing and other more traditional jobs."

By powering online career divisions for eMA, Marketing Sherpa, SalesVault.com, and RepResources.com, Headhunter.net will be providing a direct channel to recruitment tools such as job posting and editing, real-time application tracking, and a database of more than one million resumes. Additionally, visitors to the sites will be able to manage their own job search by posting their resume and taking advantage of other job seeker tools like Headhunter.net's job search informant and resume manager while searching over 250,000 jobs.
