June 09, 2010 09:23 ET Launches Local Job Board Connecting Providence, RI Employers With Providence, RI Job Seekers

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) - announced today the addition of to their online network of local job boards

Commenting on the expansion, Peter Tuttle, President of CareerBoard, said, "Providence's strength in the healthcare and financial services industries made it an ideal market to launch our newest job board." features jobs in Providence, New Bedford, Fall River, Warwick and the surrounding areas. All major job categories are represented on the Providence site including jobs in Information Systems, Accounting, Health/Medical and Engineering. Job Seekers can search jobs, upload their resume, track their application history and access career resources for free. 

CareerBoard differentiates itself from other job boards by offering employers cost effective alternatives to traditional 30-day advertisements including the option to post jobs for 7 or 28 days 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," stated 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 Providence area. It was important for us to develop a system in which employers can post jobs locally, regionally or nationally and manage their talent from one centralized area," concluded Tuttle. 

CareerBoard operates 68 locally focused job boards throughout the US, including,,,, and CareerBoard is part of the Aspire Media Group of Companies.
