Boston, March 2, 2006 – BostonWorks.com announced today the integration of comprehensive job search from Indeed.com, the leading national search engine for jobs. After searching all jobs placed directly on BostonWorks.com, job seekers may expand their search to include job listings from other Web sites, including job boards, employer sites and partner sites. This enhanced capability provides job seekers with the most comprehensive set of job listings in the greater Boston area.
“By incorporating comprehensive job search from Indeed.com, job seekers now have the opportunity to search quality job listings from a variety of sites, without ever leaving BostonWorks.com,” said Jason Kissell, managing director of BostonWorks.com. “We are always looking for new ways to bring Boston-area job seekers closer to their next job.”
For advertisers, Indeed.com will generate more job seeker traffic and help drive better results and more quality candidates to their open positions. The expanded search option appears after all BostonWorks.com listings are offered to the job seeker in search results without adding lower quality jobs.
“We are excited to power comprehensive job search for Greater Boston’s premier job site,” said Paul Forster, CEO and co-founder of Indeed. “BostonWorks.com users can now reach millions of job listings from across the Web, including newspapers, associations and direct employers. This will lead to more satisfied job seekers–and employers.”
More people find jobs on Indeed than anywhere else. Indeed is the #1 job site in the world and allows job seekers to search millions of jobs on the web or mobile in over 50 countries and 28 languages. More than 180 million people each month search for jobs, post resumes, and research companies on Indeed, and Indeed is the #1 source of external hires for thousands of companies (sources: SilkRoad & iCIMS).
