The Northern Virginia Daily and Monster.com, a leader in Internet advertising for job opportunities, have joined in a strategic partnership that will provide recruitment advertising for companies seeking employees and resume submission for job seekers, Daily Publisher Mike Gochenour announced today.
"The Daily has always been recognized as the most effective advertising source for help wanted ads in this region," Gochenour said. "And Monster.com has been the leading innovator in connecting people to job opportunities through the Internet since the World Wide Web's inception.
"In combination, our newspaper will provide the best possible tools to companies seeking employees and to our readers, both in print and on the Internet, who might be seeking a job or a better position."
Today the Daily is offering a regional Internet site, www.jobsinshenandoahvalley.com, that will be the most locally centered job site for this area.
The partnership with Monster.com also will extend all local jobs to the worldwide market place. As a result of the new relationship, job seekers will have access to more job opportunities from top local employers, and new technology will make it easier to search for, find and apply to these opportunities. There also will be national search options to locate jobs in other parts of the country.
Newspaper advertising manager Tammy Burdick said new career tools, such as resume management and career advice from industry experts, will be available on www.jobsinshenandoahvalley.com.
"We will also introduce Monster Match, which will help the job seeker build a skills profile that will be available to employers," Burdick said.
According to Gochenour, employers will benefit from the partnership by receiving access to several new online solutions, including the Career Ad Network (CAN), and Monster Match, Monster's resume database and talent-matching technology. Monster Match is designed to help companies find the right candidate quickly and easily.
Another benefit for companies will be the unlimited text offered with online job postings that will allow complete descriptions of the jobs and allow for more explicit qualifications for the positions.
Lauren Chacon, senior vice president for Monster's Media Alliances Group, said she is thrilled that the Northern Virginia Daily has chosen Monster as its recruiting partner.
"By combining the Daily's local relationships and credibility with Monster's recruitment expertise and deep pool of talent and opportunities, seekers will have access to the best job opportunities in their markets." Chacon said. "Employers will also be able to better tap into the talent available in their markets."
Gochenour added, "We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Monster, the most recognized national brand for recruitment advertising. In cooperation with Monster, the Daily will continue to provide the best solutions for those offering jobs and those seeking jobs."
