Jobs2Web Launches Global Public Relations Program; Selects The Devon Group as PR Agency of Record

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Jobs2Web Inc., a Web 2.0 interactive recruiting solutions provider, today announced the launch of its global public relations program.

Jobs2Web's interactive solutions, which enable employers to leverage Internet resources to attract, interact with and hire qualified talent without reliance on expensive and ineffective job boards, are utilized by global consulting organizations, local government agencies, major financial institutions, the largest national retailers, healthcare organizations, and some of the top technology and manufacturing companies. Jobs2Web's network of partners include both large and small recruitment advertising agencies, recruitment process outsourcing firms (RPOs), job aggregation sites, national recruitment strategies firms, and several applicant tracking systems (ATS) that are doing advanced integrations with the Jobs2Web platform.

By utilizing the latest Web 2.0 technologies, Jobs2Web's solutions help organizations drive qualified talent to corporate career sites from multiple networks, including search engines, such as Google; job aggregation and job posting sites, like SimplyHired and Craigslist; and social networks, such as Facebook and MySpace. Jobs2Web gives companies the ability to build their own talent communities that support ongoing communication with prospective hires about relevant job openings. The company also has a targeted offering especially designed to help RPO vendors improve sourcing effectiveness and to enable RPO sourcing teams to tap the same high-levels of quality talent acquisition and sourcing communities enjoyed by direct Jobs2Web employers
