The Globe and Mail and Eluta.ca Redefine Job Search
Innovative platform key to finding the best careers with Canada's top employers
TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - Globe Careers, one of Canada's most
widely recognized and established career destinations, today announced
a strategic alliance with Eluta.ca, Canada's most innovative job search
engine, to create a remarkable new platform for employers and
job-seekers alike. The new service combines the vast audience of The
Globe and Mail and GlobeandMail.com with Eluta's industry-leading
search capabilities, providing employers and job-seekers with the tools
needed for the next decade of online recruitment. The new platform can
be found by following: globeandmail.com/careers.
"Globe Careers has always been a preferred resource for Canadian professionals, known for its quality editorial content, advice and information, and we are very pleased to have formed a strategic alliance with Eluta.ca that will further enhance our full-service career search offerings," says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO, The Globe and Mail. "Together we have redefined job search by bringing our readers a new way to find the best careers with the nation's top employers."
The Globe and Mail created one of Canada's first job boards over a decade ago. Today, through Globe Careers, The Globe and Mail continues to be Canada's most innovative job search platform - redesigned for the next decade of online recruitment. The new platform connects job posters to a vast audience of educated and experienced talent through print, online, mobile, search and social channels.
"It's a special privilege for us to align with Globe Careers on this forward-thinking development," says Tony Meehan, Publisher, Eluta.ca. "The Globe and Mail was an early pioneer of online recruitment in Canada and it's a tremendous vote of confidence to have them join us in extending the Eluta.ca platform to their large and growing online audience of educated and engaged Canadians."
Unlike traditional job boards, Eluta.ca lets job-seekers find all the new full-time career opportunities from employer websites- not just the advertised ones. The search engine provides a high-quality search experience using proprietary algorithms, technology and human editing to connect job seekers directly with employers. Eluta.ca is also the online home of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project, providing job-seekers with trusted and reliable editorial information about working conditions at thousands of employers across Canada.
"Today, The Globe and Mail puts its clients and readers at the forefront when it comes to the next decade of online recruitment," says Andrew Saunders, Vice President, Advertising Sales, The Globe and Mail. "For the first time, employers are now able to extend their recruitment message across Canada's national newspaper, Canada's most-read individual newspaper site and the nation's most innovative job search engine, Eluta.ca - all from a single point-of-contact with consolidated performance reporting."
Currently, Globe and Mail sites attract almost four million monthly unique users, who view a total of 124 million pages*. Eluta.ca attracts 548,000 monthly unique users, who perform 5.8 million job searches on the site each month**.
