Web2Corp's WBTO JobMatchPro.com Reaches 4,000+ Job Listings in 8 Weeks

As Online Job Availability Slows, More Distinctive and Engaging Resumes Needed to Stand Out

ORLANDO FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- According to online job placement company Monster.com, the availability of job postings in online jobs has slowed since the end of 2006. Housing, construction, IT and management jobs seem in less demand across the nation and hiring has slowed down noticeably -- as much as six percent in some metropolitan areas. Job applicants need to do more to stand out from the crowd and increase the chance that they will be hired quickly.

"The traditional model of online job posting and online resumes has worked well for many companies such as Monster.com," says William Mobley, CEO of Web2Corp (OTCBB: WBTO), "and has been a great opportunity for individuals as well. Now as the job markets have been slowing, gaining that competitive edge with a resume is crucial.

"A recent study by DoubleClick showed that video is twice as effective in raising awareness and promoting yourself compared to static text or graphics. Instead of just uploading your text resume and maybe a link to your website if you have one, don't you think it's time to wow potential employers out there with your video resume?

"We've just recently passed our 4,000th job posting on JobMatchPro.com since the site's launch less than 8 weeks ago. There's tons of availability here, at least, and the opportunity to really demonstrate your job skills online. If you're tired of waiting to hear back from employers, take the next step and upload your video resume to www.JobMatchPro.com."
