CareerCast''s national network tops 100 participating sites


CareerCast, the developer of scaleable web-based job board solutions, announced that its CareerCast National Network, composed of newspaper and magazine career sites across the country, topped 100 participating media partners this month. New partner sites scheduled to launch soon include those powered by the Milwaukee Journal,, the Nashua Telegraph, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, the Daytona Beach News Journal and La Opinion in Los Angeles.

Established in October 2002, the CareerCast National Network offers recruiting professionals the ability to post job opportunities into both the local database of each participating newspaper or magazine, as well as into that publication''s National Network database, which candidates see every time they conduct a job search at any participating career site.

Hiring companies say they prefer the convenience of posting their job openings just once to be viewed by candidates visiting each local site, as well as those visiting all of the participating National Network sites, and receiving just one bill, says Rick Miller, CEO of CareerCast. The Network extends the reach of their job listings dramatically and cost effectively.

National Network participants include the career web sites from such major newspapers The Wall Street Journal, which powers and, the San Diego Union-Tribune, Orange County Register, Seattle Times and Bergen Record, to dozens of smaller papers owned by such chains as Ottaway, Calkins Media, Freedom Communications, and North Jersey Media Group. It also includes a range of magazine career sites, including those from Computerworld, Infoworld, Networkworld, CIO, Entrepreneur and Smart Money.

The price of a single job posting on each participating site varies, and the cost of extending that listing throughout the National Network typically is an additional $200. Those prices fall when companies post multiple jobs.

We''re pleased that we can help so many media companies extend the value of their career sites by joining them together through the National Network, says Miller. And we''re very encouraged by the wide range of other newspapers and magazines that have expressed an interest in joining us.
