AfterCollege Wins WEDDLE's User's Choice Award for Best Employment Site

Out of 100,000 International Competitors, AfterCollege Was Selected as One of the Best Destinations for Job Seekers and Employers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2010) - AfterCollege, the largest online career network for students and recent graduates, has received a WEDDLE's 2010 User's Choice Award for Best Job Board. AfterCollege's users -- job seekers and employers -- picked this job site out of 100,000 international competitors to place it in the top 30 job boards in the world.

This is the sixth year that WEDDLE's, a research and publishing company that specializes in employment, conducted its year-long poll that allows actual customers to vote for their favorite sites.

"We were thrilled to hear that our users selected us as one of the best employment web sites in the world," said Roberto Angulo, AfterCollege CEO and founder. "It reinforces what we believed ten years ago when we started AfterCollege: that we have a service both students and employers can benefit from, and that if you build a platform that is customizable, user-friendly, and affordable, your user base will keep coming back."

"We believe customers count most," says WEDDLE's Publisher and CEO, Peter Weddle. "While pundits can make their own picks, it's the people who use the sites who really know which are most helpful."

The 2010 winners of the WEDDLE's User's Choice Awards are:
