Upstart now among Canada's four most popular job search sites

    TORONTO, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Barely a year after its launch, has
joined the elite ranks of Canada's four most popular careers-job search
entities. According to comScore Media Metrix(*), in September 2007, the popular
job search engine received 400,000 unique visitors in Canada who viewed over
three million pages.
    "We clearly are overwhelmed by the interest Canadians are showing in our
modest search engine," said Tony Meehan, President of Mediacorp Canada Inc.,
which manages the project. "It confirms our view that Canadian
job-seekers are looking for a better way to search."
    Unlike traditional job boards, lets people find new jobs
directly from employers' websites. The search engine uses a combination of
sophisticated algorithms and old-fashioned human editing to index thousands of
new positions every week. What's unique about is that all its jobs
are full-time, career-level opportunities -- no part-time, temporary or agency
postings are included. "People often tell us that using is a lot like
using an everyday search engine," Meehan said. "The only difference is that
our search results only include newly posted jobs across Canada."
    A unique feature of is that users can also target their job
searches on award-winning employers, such as the annual list of Canada's Top
100 Employers released earlier this month (also by Mediacorp). "We'll have
some wonderful tools on this fall that integrate these two projects
further," Meehan added.
    One of the most dramatic findings in September's comScore Media Metrix
results is that has the highest composition of people aged 35 years
and older amongst the top ten career-job search entities. "Experienced
job-seekers appreciate because it delivers high-quality jobs without
making them register or divulge personal information."
