BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Local Search Association, in collaboration with Jobjolt, today announced a new jobs portal to help connect job seekers with opportunities at www.localsearchassociation.org/jobjolt.
Jobjolt is one of the Association's newest members, after it rebranded in April to include a wider range of local search companies.
The local search jobs portal will make it easier for employers to connect with local search professionals nationwide and for job seekers to explore a wide range of careers spanning the breadth of the industry.
"This portal will serve as a fantastic resource for job hunters and will showcase the many facets of the quickly broadening local search industry," said Neg Norton, president of Local Search Association. "Our job listings feature is the first of its kind and fills an unmet need in the industry. There's currently no single resource for local search employers and job seekers to find each other."
"It is our hope that this partnership and job board will give those in the local search community a unique way to find each other," said Robert Hawthorne, Chief Executive Officer at Jobjolt. "We are proud to partner with the Local Search Association, the only trade association serving the local search space."
By offering career listings, job coaching, and informational career guides - the Association hopes to connect its members and other industry players with the best talent and introduce job seekers to the wealth of opportunities in the industry. At launch, the site will include more than 500 listings from over 125 employers.
"The Local Search Association is the natural connection point for bringing together the industry's top talent with premier providers of local search marketing tools to local businesses," Norton said. "As we continue our transformation as an industry and as an Association, we'll continue to look for new tools and features that help benefit the local search community."
