CareerBoard Launches Job Board to Connect Virginia Job Seekers With Virginia Employers

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - CareerBoard.com announced today the addition of Virginia.CareerBoard.com to their online network of 47 local job boards.

"Virginia's high concentration of IT Professionals and Government Contractors makes it an ideal market to launch our newest job board as CareerBoard has a history of delivering quality talent in these areas," explains CareerBoard's President, Peter Tuttle.

Virginia.CareerBoard.com features jobs throughout the State of Virginia including Richmond, Arlington, Norfolk, Charlottesville and Alexandria.

CareerBoard differentiates itself by offering cost effective alternatives to traditional 30-day advertisements including 7-day job postings and a Pay for Performance pricing option.

The 7-day job posting was developed in response to the results of a study that concluded 70% of applications occurred within the first week of a position being posted. "We give employers the flexibility to control their costs by advertising for a shorter period of time without significantly reducing candidate response," according to Tuttle.

CareerBoard's Pay for Performance (P4P) product enables employers to post jobs for free and only pay for qualified applications. Employers build a "qualified candidate profile" through a series of filtering questions and their cost per applicant is calculated from the number and depth of the filtering questions selected and the hiring salary.

"While the majority of hires will come from the local market we also understand the occasional need to recruit outside of the area. It was important for us to develop a system in which employers can post their jobs locally, regionally or nationally and manage their talent from one centralized area," explains Tuttle.

CareerBoard also recently launched local employment websites in Washington DC, Boston, Baltimore and New York.
