Interactive Recruiting Company Also Celebrates 40th Client in Healthcare Vertical

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - Jobs2Web, a Web 2.0 interactive recruiting solutions provider, today celebrated the signing of its 100th customer, Navy Federal Credit Union, the world's largest natural person credit union. This milestone further extends a successful year marked by tremendous growth for the company, which helps employers utilize Web 2.0 technology to hire talent inside or outside their company at lower costs than traditional recruitment solutions such as expensive job boards.

Dan Mueller, Supervisor of Recruiting and Selection at Navy Federal Credit Union, stated, "As we looked at the trends in the recruitment industry, we saw that search engine optimization and Web 2.0 tools were going to play a larger role in directing people to our career site. We also wanted to make sure we were posting our jobs where the job seekers were looking -- not just major search engines and job boards, but also social networking sites."

He continued, "We knew we needed to change our model of recruiting, and Jobs2Web has the capabilities to get us where we want to be. Their ability to track the varied aspects of our recruiting efforts -- telling us where our candidates are coming from and ranking our career site and talent landing pages -- also will show us how we can be most effective with our recruiting dollars."

"Since we began offering our solutions in 2003, we've worked with a variety of customers -- from global consulting organizations to local government agencies. Our client list includes major technology, engineering, pharmaceutical and medtech companies, the largest national retailers, and well recognized healthcare providers. In addition to welcoming our 100th client -- the Navy Federal Credit Union -- we are also proud to celebrate our 40th healthcare client -- Washington Hospital Center -- which demonstrates the value we provide to all types of companies looking to capitalize on the new wave of interactive recruiting," stated Ken Holec, Jobs2Web's Chief Executive.
