Well-known Industry Executive Joins Eluta.ca as New President & CEO



    TORONTO, Jan. 29 /CNW/ - Eluta Inc. announced today that Kim Peters, one
of Canada's most widely known and experienced online recruitment executives,
has joined the company as its new President & Chief Executive Officer. Ms
Peters has also been elected to the Management Committee of the company's
board of directors.
    "We are fortunate to have such a well-known and respected industry
executive at the helm of our popular search engine," says Anthony Meehan, the
Founder and Chairman of Eluta Inc. "Kim brings a rare combination of industry
experience and management depth to the Eluta.ca platform, which we believe is
the future of online recruitment in Canada." Ms Peters' mandate is to
establish Eluta.ca as the leading player in the next generation of recruitment
sites.
    Ms Peters is one of the most seasoned executives in Canada's online
recruitment industry, with over 10 years experience in senior management
roles. She is the founder of Workopolis.com, where she served as President &
COO. Prior to launching Workopolis, Kim oversaw the creation of
GlobeCareers.com, Canada's first major online recruitment site. Most recently,
she served as Vice-President of Recruitment Advertising at CanWest MediaWorks,
where she oversaw the creation of Working.com.
    "I am excited to be leading Eluta.ca, as it brings search engine
marketing into the field of recruitment," Ms Peters says. "I was fortunate to
be present when recruitment advertising began migrating from print advertising
to online job boards. Now I see the same transition happening today, as
specialized search engines like Eluta.ca gradually replace the traditional job
boards. Increasingly, employers and job-seekers want to be connected directly
and don't need costly intermediaries."

    Launched in 2006, Eluta.ca is a unique search engine that specializes in
finding new full-time job opportunities posted by employers in Canada. The
site provides a high quality search experience by using proprietary
algorithms, technology and human editing to connect job-seekers directly with
employers, bypassing traditional job boards. Eluta.ca also contains exclusive
data and editorial content from the annual Canada's Top 100 Employers
competition and Canada's Best Employers for New Graduates, both managed by
Eluta's parent company. In 2007, more than 1.8 million unique users searched
Eluta.ca to find new jobs at employers across Canada.
