The folks at ZipRecruiter have been busy building up their affiliate network. Last week they officially announced that they have partnered with Gatehouse Media and US News.com.
Gatehouse Media currently has hundreds of local newspaper and community sites currently being powered by Monster. As of October, it’s Zip’s turn to be their job board of choice. They have one of the largest publishers of locally-based media in the United States, with over 125 daily newspapers, more than 300 weekly newspapers and 555 local market websites. This partnership makes ZipRecruiter the exclusive recruitment advertising partner for GateHouse Media.
The partnership, which will launch on October 1 in over 550 markets across the US, will power GateHouse recruitment pages – online and in print – that reach over 21 million readers every week. This is a huge win for ZipRecruiter and will certainly bolster their existing traffic base. I asked them how many new job seekers this might add to their overall traffic numbers but haven’t heard back yet. My guess is at least a couple hundred thousand. They will be replacing Monster who is losing yet another big newspaper network.
ZipRecruiter says they now have 1,000 partners like this worldwide.
And in other news they also now power the job board of USnews.com the magazine and news website.
“U.S. News & World Report, publisher of the popular Best Jobs rankings, today unveiled a suite of new tools to help job seekers at every level research, identify and apply to open positions that align with their career goals, experience level and location. The new tools, powered by ZipRecruiter, the fastest-growing online employment marketplace, allow individuals to stay up-to-date on open positions in their field and desired location through an easy-to-navigate job search tool and job alert emails.”
