CareerBuilder.com, the nation's largest online job network with 20 million* unique visitors and over 600,000 jobs, announced it is now powering the new online job search center for The Juneau Empire ( http://www.juneauempire.com/ ), one of the 26 daily newspapers published by Morris Publishing Group, a subsidiary of Morris Communications Co.
Expanding on a partnership created in June 2004, CareerBuilder.com now powers the online job search center for five Morris Publishing Group newspaper sites, including its flagship newspaper, The Augusta (GA) Chronicle.
"The employment forecast in Alaska is keeping pace with the nationwide trend of improved job growth," said Brent Rasmussen, senior vice president of sales for CareerBuilder.com. "This extension of our partnership with the Morris Publishing Group reinforces our commitment to matching employers and qualified job seekers both locally and at the national level."
"Incorporating CareerBuilder.com's job search center with The Juneau Empire provides our readers with one-stop convenience, allowing them to access CareerBuilder.com's extensive jobs database and tools while browsing their local news," said Will Morris, president and CEO of Morris Publishing Group and president of its parent company. "We expect the same success from our CareerBuilder.com partnership here as we have seen with our other newspaper sites."
Visitors to the job search centers can take advantage of CareerBuilder.com's smart online products to help them target their job searches for salaried and hourly positions. The site gives job seekers the choice to search by industry, location or job type, and provides online career assessments, coaching for interviews and tips for salary negotiations. Job seekers can indicate their work preferences and have openings automatically e-mailed to them. Interested employers can review job seeker profiles and contact qualified candidates directly.
