Beyond.com Enhances Niche Model by Launching New Ways for …


KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Jun 25, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Beyond.com, The Career Network focused on helping people grow and
succeed professionally, has launched a series of tools for professionals
to better manage their careers. As the traditional job search model
continues to evolve and incorporate online job postings, email
marketing, social media and mobile components, Beyond.com offers a suite
of resources to help professionals market themselves and connect with
career information and opportunities.

By providing professionals with a place to manage their careers–not just
search for a job–Beyond.com is attracting more focused candidates and
making it easier for them to connect with relevant opportunities. These
career management tools will guide professionals throughout their career
from start to finish–from the time that they start out as an entry-level
employee, to an experienced professional, to a retiree.

“In a recent survey of more than 1,700 professionals, we found that
about 78% of people admitted that they should spend more time managing
their careers,” said Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com. “Based on our
findings we recognized that there was a void when it came to career
management tools and we took it upon ourselves to fulfill this need.”

Beyond.com has made the following enhancements to their suite of career
management tools:


Talent Communities: Grants instant access to the latest
information on job opportunities, industry trends, salary information,
companies that are hiring and other career content. With communities
serving more than 500 professions and specialties,, professionals can
join any community that piques their interest.


Beyond.com Networking Facebook App: Enables candidates to
search for jobs on the Beyond.com Career Network and to learn where
their friends work from within the Facebook platform.


Personal Home Page: Delivers a personalized stream of
information from the communities the job seeker is following and the
jobs they have indicated they are interested in–no searching required.
Rather than having to sift through job postings and career news, a
member can log in to their account and quickly keep tabs on what is
happening in their industry, including new jobs.

These career management tools provide greater value to the professional
audience while attracting even more quality candidates. Additionally,
enhanced targeting will deliver the right jobs to the right people to
improve the candidate pool and expedite the recruitment process. More
enhancements are planned for this year, including updates to
Beyond.com’s mobile applications, which currently account for 7 of the
top 25 job apps in the iPhone App Store.
