Posted

America's Newspapers, Editor & Publisher and the Poynter Institute have partnered to launch the Media Job Board (http://mediajobboard.com), serving the media industry with cutting-edge job-matching technology and targeted network distribution powered by PandoLogic. Job seekers can connect with Media Staffing Network (MSN), a totally "media-focused" staffing company, to help them make the next move in their careers.

Members of America's Newspapers can receive basic listings with the Media Job Board at no additional cost, as part of their America's Newspapers membership.

Employers who post jobs on the new Media Job Board receive unprecedented reach to top media professionals across many websites and on TheJobNetwork™, the largest recruitment ad network of job sites in North America.

Media Job Board job postings on TheJobNetwork™ reach millions of active and passive job seekers monthly across the internet on local, niche and vertical job sites, as well as on leading aggregator sites and social networks. To ensure maximum qualified responses, jobs posted on the Media Job Board are automatically optimized, distributed and monitored as part of targeted ad campaigns. This targeted distribution produces higher rankings in search results on search engines and paid job sites.  The new site allows hiring managers to save valuable time and effort with Real-Time Job Matching™, which automatically screens, grades and ranks applicants, and returns qualified passive job seeker matches in real-time from the site’s resume database.

Through this new partnership, job postings appear on the website at www.mediajobboard.com, in Editor & Publisher magazine and on Poynter's and America's Newspapers' websites.

“Our first mission in developing the new Media Job Board was to help the many talented professionals from all sectors of our industry to have the best vehicle possible to seek and find the right position. That is why we are committed to offering free resume posting and new state-of-the-art job matching to anyone, employed or not,” said E&P Publisher Mike Blinder. “While we were in beta testing, I posted my resume and filled out my matching profile in the new platform and each day I am getting alerts of some great opportunities, even in this tough job market. I love our partnership with PandoLogic, who provides the technology that helps our employers put their openings in front of the right candidates while searching hundreds of platforms that constantly ‘hunt’ for our job seekers.”

“The ability to find the right people is a critical part of our members' success," stated America’s Newspapers CEO Dean Ridings. “I am glad that we are able to have this partnership with industry leaders Editor & Publisher and the Poynter Institute that can facilitate our members in finding the best talent and access tools that make the process more efficient.”

The Media Job Board’s Total Talent Reach™ plan is the ideal option for employers, who no longer need to worry about where to post jobs to get the best applicants. Total Talent Reach™ transforms job postings into fully automated ad distribution campaigns that target relevant job seekers across hundreds of leading national, industry-specific and local job sites. Our job-level campaign management technology works around the clock to make sure your ad is getting the maximum response possible so you can hire faster with much less effort, cost and time.

MSN CEO Laurie Kahn remarked, "Our Media Staffing Network adds helpful services to enhance the experience for both the job seekers and employers looking to hire with various levels of assistance ranging from creating more targeted job descriptions and resumes to actual live coaching, something that other boards do not offer. We are thrilled to be a partner with the Media Job Board. We know media, so we can offer the expertise needed to land the right job or hire the perfect person."

“This new journalism job board has journalists and the ad and marketing teams.  In an age when journalists and the advertising and marketing teams are working so closely together to solve the industry's revenue challenges, this site will open new doors for many,” said Wendy Wallace, Poynter’s director of advancement.

The Media Job Board also offers job seekers an enhanced user experience driven by the Real-Time Job Matching™ service, which instantly matches job seekers to open postings based on their skill sets, experience and preferences — eliminating the need for tedious keyword searching and browsing through hundreds of irrelevant job postings. Since the Media Job Board is part of TheJobNetwork™, job seekers also have access to job matches from any of their thousands of network sites. Job seekers who register on the Media Job Board can view relevant job matches and apply them in real-time from their online account.
