ClickZ and Search Engine Watch Unveil Interactive Marketing Job Board

Applicants and Recruiters Match Interests in Social Media and Search Engine Marketing Jobs

NEW YORK – ClickZ, the largest resource of interactive marketing news, information and opinion, has teamed up with search engine industry news specialist Search Engine Watch to launch a new interactive marketing job board. ClickZJobs and SEWJobs helps connect jobseekers with the latest employment opportunities and provide recruiters access to more than 1 million unique interactive and search professionals throughout their network of brands.

With renewed confidence in the interactive marketing industry, digital media spend has been predicted to grow 14% and search by 10.5% in 2011, according to MediaPost. With many of the world’s leading social media and search companies based in the US, demand for the best talent is increasing rapidly. ClickZJobs and SEWJobs will bridge the gap between demand for social media and search engine marketing professionals and recruiters.

Matt McGowan, Managing Director of Americas for Incisive Media, commented: “We are always looking for ways to add value to members of our social media and search marketing community, and playing matchmaker between experienced professionals and the companies looking for talent is a service that benefits the entire interactive marketing industry. We picked Madgex as our partner in this effort because they have the successful track record to get quick, quality results for jobseekers.”

The user-friendly design and highly intuitive functionality makes it as easy as possible for jobseekers to search for their next career move. Jobseekers can search for jobs by a range of criteria including location, job type and salary expectations and create email alerts via the simple sign up process. Creating a user profile takes minutes with options to upload an existing resume, build one from scratch or import any public viewable resume from the web. Once published, recruiters can search the resume database to match the candidates they need to fill their vacancies.

With jobseekers increasingly turning to mobile devices to access the internet ClickZJobs and SEWJobs both have fully mobile enabled job sites. The mobile sites harness the full power of the full job board allowing jobseekers to search, browse and apply for jobs directly from the mobile site using their previously created profile and stored resume. This makes it possible for jobseekers to find their next career change on the move from any location.

Recruiters benefit from a dedicated customizable recruiter profile page featuring all the listed jobs you currently have available. Reach more potential candidates through dedicated branding opportunities throughout the jobs board. Gold members have even more ways to reach the right talent by building a custom program through a variety of premium features including video job listings, newsletter features, of-site banner placements and premium job posting.
