eCareer Holdings Reports 1000% Increase in Openreq.com Site Traffic, Seeks to Expand Salesforce

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2015) - eCareer Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: ECHI), a developer and marketer of branded career content sites, reports a 1,000-percent increase in traffic to its recently re-launched Openreq.com website, the leading news source for human resources, staffing and recruiting professionals. The company also highlights recent performance results of its job board platform and the expansion of its full-time sales force.

The November 2014 re-launch of Openreq.com implemented a new "viral news" content format which in its short three-month duration has already garnered hundreds of positive comments from members of the human resources, staffing and recruiting community. In addition, Openreq.com "Daily News" subscriptions have experienced significant growth with approximately 23,000 daily news subscribers.

"After analyzing Openreq.com's traffic last year we recognized the incredible potential the site offered. We set out to achieve this success with a complete overhaul of the website, the addition of a powerful job board platform and implementation of a new 'viral news' design," says Joe Azzata, CEO of eCareer.com. "We're pleased that our strategy has so rapidly produced significant traffic increases and positive feedback from job advertisers and industry professionals."

Openreq.com's new jobs section drives response rates up to four times higher than the leading national job board, providing clients with unprecedented outreach to top human resources, staffing, and recruiting professionals within the Openreq™ community and on the TheJobNetwork™, the largest recruitment ad network of job sites in North America.

To ensure maximum qualified response, jobs posted on Openreq.com are automatically optimized, distributed on a monthly basis reaching millions of active and passive job seekers across the Internet, and monitored as part of targeted ad campaigns. This targeted distribution produces higher rankings in search engine and paid job site search results, generating an average increase in qualified response of 200%. In addition, the new site allows hiring managers to save valuable time and effort by automatically screening, grading and ranking applicants, as well as returning qualified passive job seeker matches in real-time from the site's resume database.

Due to the increased traffic to Openreq.com in conjunction with positive job board performance results, eCareer has bolstered its sales team to three full-time sales professionals who sell job adverting packages to staffing, recruiting and human resources departments. In upcoming months eCareer plans to grow the Openreq.com sales team to 10-12 full-time sales professionals who will call on all the staffing and recruiting companies in the U.S. as well as the Fortune 2000.
