College Recruiter Named #1 Site for Recruiters to Post Entry-Level Jobs by Business.com

Business.com logoMinneapolis, MN (April 7, 2015) — Interactive recruitment media company College Recruiter announced today that it was just named by Business.com as the best site for recruiters to advertise their entry-level job openings. In an article written by Sarah Landrum, Business.com wrote that the five best sites for recruiters to post their open positions and reach the talent they’re looking for are:

 

  • College Recruiter – best job board for entry-level hires
  • Craigslist — best job board for non-traditional positions
  • Indeed — best all around job board
  • The Ladders — best job board for executives
  • VetJobs — best job board you didn’t know you needed

“We were honored to learn of the recognition,” said Faith Rothberg, chief executive officer of College Recruiter. “Business.com has been a well known and trusted brand for small- and medium-sized businesses to stay up-to-date on business industry news and trends and we’ve relied upon it many times when we’re researching companies we’re considering doing business with.”

According to the article, “[t]he way to recruit young talent is to go to where they are most often, and that’s online through numerous channels.” The problem that most employers face isn’t generating enough applications, but applications from the right candidates. In other words, quality is increasingly becoming more of an important factor to employers than quantity. “To solve the conundrum, try posting your open position on CollegeRecruiter.com. In addition to the standard job posting capabilities, College Recruiter offers packages for recruiters and businesses that include mobile and display advertising, targeted email campaigns and virtual career events, to name just a few.”

Why CollegeRecruiter.com Stands With Craigslist to Oppose SOPA and PIPA

One of my favorite Internet pioneers is Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist. He’s smart, self-effacing, motivated more by doing good than making money, and cool enough to get energy by working as a customer service representative for Craigslist rather than as its Chief Executive Officer. The guy really walks the walk rather than just talking the talk.

Thanks to my oldest kid and people like Craig, weeks ago I became aware of two bills working their way through the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate that are very, very dangerous to every Internet user and every Internet site except for the very small number of advocates who have tried without much success to portray themselves as sheep when in fact they’re acting as wolves. Here’s a short video from Craig that explains the situation: (more…)
