SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - April 10, 2013) -
The U.S. job market may be at a decline, but the distribution of employment opportunities is quickly picking up steam for local news and events site Buckaroo. The local media hub recently partnered with recruitment advertising network Indeed and now distributes open positions from over 25,000 companies world-wide to its 46 million subscribers.
"Most people can say that job-hunting is a necessity at some point in life," said Alan Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of Buckaroo's parent company Iron Speed, Inc. "Job seekers are always in need of new resources for networking, applying and researching to help land that next position. Buckaroo intends to streamline that process and make information available to our users according to their needs."
The new category of local jobs lifts Buckaroo to over two million pages, ranging from concerts and adoptable pets to local news and classifieds for neighborhoods across North America. The site's platform supports hyper-local listings in real-time and allows for easy search. Furthermore, average users can create free personal postings and engage with community news.
"For many users, Buckaroo serves as a digital daily newspaper that bridges the gap between printed news and the smartphone," remarked Fisher. "Buckaroo takes extensive and sometimes chaotic information from the web and delivers it in a personal and relevant way."
Buckaroo also maintains a large community of businesses that post and share news for free or purchase affordable, locally-targeted email advertisements.
Buckaroo (www.Buckaroo.com) is the online hub for local shopping, news and events. Buckaroo's parent company, Iron Speed, Inc., is well-funded with a capital base of over $20M from several strategic investors and executives from AMD, Excelan, Onsale, and Oracle. The company was founded in 1999 and is based in San Jose, CA. Find Buckaroo on Facebook and Twitter to learn more.
