Job Seekers Find Greatest Number of Local Job Listings on BostonWorks.com
Indeed.com Job Search Enables Users to Search More Quality Job Listings than Any Other Boston Area Jobs Site
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."
BostonWorks, a division of The Boston Globe, is the leading recruitment services provider in Greater Boston. Combining
the power of The Boston Globe and Boston.com, BostonWorks reaches an audience of more than 2.4 million each week. In
addition to the Sunday Globe's BostonWorks section, the division offers BostonWorks.com with more than 22,000 job
listings and 590,000 resumes; industry-specific magazines such as "On Call" for nurses and allied health professionals
and 12 career fairs held in Greater Boston throughout the year.
