TORONTO and STAMFORD, CT, June 29 /CNW/ - Upstart Canadian job search
engine Eluta.ca has been named one of the world's 100 best employment sites by
the key reference guide to the online employment industry. The selection was
made from over 10,000 job boards profiled by Connecticut-based WEDDLE's LLC,
the largest publisher of print and online guides in the field.
"We're tremendously pleased with this endorsement," says Kim Peters,
President of Eluta Inc. "Especially coming from the people who know our
industry best. It's a badge of honour for Eluta.ca, which just celebrated its
3rd anniversary." The WEDDLE's guide has been in publication for almost 15
years and is considered the industry's gold standard.
"Our Top 100 employment sites are the elite of the job board industry,"
says Weddle's Publisher Peter Weddle. "They have the strongest brands, the
best services and the most distinguished track records of the sites we've seen
on the Web. Are there other good sites out there? Of course. But the Top 100
selectees are truly in a class of their own."
The list of the 100 best sites is included in WEDDLE's new 2009/10 Guide
to Employment Sites on the Internet, described as the "Zagat" of the online
employment industry by the American Staffing Association.
