BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwire - May 12, 2009) -

Editors Note: There is a photo and a video associated with this Press Release.

Online MBA recruitment platform CareerMee.com has opened its service to executive search firms, following overwhelming demand from members and recruiters alike.

The move means that 15 headhunting firms will join the site's 60+ recruiting companies this week alone, and that candidates will be exposed to even more opportunities around the world.

One firm that joined is CDS Executive, a market leader in Japan that recruits for companies including Google, Cisco, GAP and Goldman Sachs.

"Japan is suffering its worst economic crisis since WW2 so it is even more vital that MBA's network effectively using their Alumni contacts as well as aligning themselves with search firms and the relevant consultants within them," Simon Childs, Managing Director of CDS Executive said.

"CareerMee.com looks like a very promising tool and the first such one, focused on MBA's, we have seen in Japan."

Mr. Childs was included in BusinessWeek's 2008 list of the world's 150 most influential headhunters, as was Martin McEvoy, Managing Director of Dublin-based McEvoy Associates Signium International.

"Ultimately, we would like to see CareerMee.com become a repository for global MBA talent," Mr McEvoy said.

McEvoy Associates Signium International has completed executive search assignments for over 30% of Ireland's top 100 companies.

Florian Behn, CEO of CareerMee.com, said the move will significantly improve candidates' visibility in the job market.

"CareerMee.com is a very young company, and even thought it was born into difficult times, the interest we've received from search firms has been incredible," he said.

"We've been finding our feet in the first few months since launching in January, but the enthusiasm for this move really shows that there are still open MBA jobs, and that there are still opportunities out there."

All of the search firms that have so far joined the site have consultants listed in BusinessWeek's 2008 list.
