The Career Network Beyond.com Inc. just announced its acquisition of job board JobCircle.com. The online job portal is dedicated to employers and job seekers in the nation’s Mid-Atlantic region.
JobCircle.com offers its 1.3 million registered members with a variety of tools to simplify job posting and candidate search processes. The site was founded in 1998, and is well known for developing and producing specific career fairs and events to more than 18 industry categories.
“While employers and job seekers are increasingly interacting through our online channels, we recognize that a large part of the hiring process takes place face-to-face,” said Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com. “Today’s acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to streamlining the hiring cycle for our employers while providing our more than 25 million members with comprehensive products and services that help them create smart and valuable connections.”
The acquisition will help Beyond.com expand The Career Network online with virtual career fairs while growing offline with live career events in several markets, including the IT vertical market.
“Partnering with Beyond.com gives us the opportunity to bring our proven track record of developing engaging recruitment and enrichment events to a much larger audience,” said Joe Stubblebine, CEO and co-founder of Human Capital Solutions LLC. “We’re excited to join one of the true leaders in the HR and career development industry.”
