Petaluma, CA, USA (June 30, 2015) — Cross-Post LLC, a leading provider of recruitment classified networks and the award winning CareerPointe job board platform, has partnered with the Salt Lake City Weekly newspaper to power their new UTAH JOB CENTER – http://www.utahjobcenter.com – serving jobseekers and employers statewide.

Cross-Post has also partnered with the Planet Jackson Hole newspaper in Wyoming and the Coachella Valley Independent in California to launch job boards later this summer.

The CareerPointe private label job board platform provides a new and unique approach for media company partners to maximize their audience growth and revenue potential in the recruitment advertising category. CareerPointe’s enhanced candidate experience tools like the CareerWidget provide for a much better user experience and candidate engagement process than legacy job boards can offer.

“The launch of the UTAH JOB CENTER comes during a time of significant changes in the online recruitment market that require technology solutions to meet the changing expectations of job candidates and employers. The unique job-seeker centric approach of the CareerPointe platform serves the needs of our audience best,” said City Weekly Publisher John Saltas. “The superior performance of the CareerPointe platform will help us grow market share and increase recruitment ad revenue significantly.”

“We are very pleased to be partnering with the Salt Lake City Weekly and other AAN (Association of Alternative Newsmedia) newspapers who have recognized the need to more effectively serve job seekers and employers in their audience. Our platform makes managing the job search much easier for candidates and filling positions easier for employers”, said George Dratelis, Director of Business Development for Cross-Post LLC.

Cross-Post LLC Launches Career-Wallet.com

Cross-Post LLC

New website helps job candidates manage their careers, apply for job opportunities, or take a college course using any mobile device.

Careerpointe Logo

Petaluma, CA, USA (March 23, 2014) — Cross-Post LLC, owner of Cross-Post Digital Recruitment Networks and co-owner of the CareerPointe Recruitment Classifieds Platform for publishers, announces the launch of its newest career management tool.

Career-Wallet.com is a web portal that provides free employment and career search tools, along with free and low-cost online educational opportunities from colleges and universities around the world. It is one of the first products of its kind and utilizes the ONREC 2014 award winning Tracklet? technology from Careerleaf of Canada.

“After considerable research, it was determined that job candidates viewed the job search and hiring process negatively. At the top of the list was having to fill out dozens of applications and then throwing them into a black hole. They would search for jobs in the morning on their mobile devices and have to wait to apply for them that evening on their desktop. We set out to improve the candidate engagement experience and, with our partners, have created a truly unique job search and career enhancement tool that candidates can use for the rest of their lives.” Noted John Fujii President of Cross-Post LLC.

Career-wallet.com allows candidates to create their own personal job search portal quickly, using their LinkedIn account or resume to fill out their profile. They can upload multiple resumes and cover letters and keep track of every job lead and application for the rest of their careers. Though not a job board, Career-wallet.com gives them access to every job board on earth through the website. To apply for a job online, they simply have to drag their Tracklet? to their browser toolbar to the apply button, fill in the application with one click, retrieve their resume and cover letter, and hit apply. That job then appears in their Job Manager where they can track the progress of the application, and get tips and reminders to research and follow up with employers.

Everyone is a job candidate at one time or another, and passive and active candidates can use Career-Wallet.com to improve their skills by taking free and low cost courses from some of the top educational institutions in the world. Through a partnership with the folks over at MoocTracks, candidates can search a global database of more than 14,000 Mooc’s or massively open online courses.

“This is such an awesome resource for early career and college students as well as the more seasoned professional who may be looking for a career change or finds themselves in outplacement. My son signed up for a free course in Business Theory at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in about five minutes and it is being taught by some of the top business minds in the country today. What a great resume builder. ” Said Carl Braun CEO of Cross-Post LLC.

“Mobilizing your job search is particularly appealing to candidates that are on the road often. From truckers to road warriors, everything available on Career-wallet.com can be done on a smartphone or tablet. The website is responsively designed, so it work on any size screen or mobile device. Applying for a job on your smartphone with a few clicks is a huge advancement in the marketplace.

Cross-Post plans to work with outplacement firms, college sites, veterans groups and others to extend this free tool to any and all candidates interested in finding a new job or building their knowledge base. The tools found on Career-Wallet are built into all CareerPointe job boards.

Cross-Post LLC launches CareerNews Portal For Newspapers

Cross-Post LLC

Unlimited articles from the top thought leaders in recruitment and careers.

Careerpointe Logo

Petaluma, CA, USA (February 25, 2015) — Cross-Post LLC announced today the launch of a CareerNews Portal as part of its CareerPointe Newspaper Recruitment Classifieds Platform. The move allows newspaper partners to offer up-to-the-minute career advice from the thought leaders and social media influencers in the careers/recruitment market segment. The platform is powered by Sociative and includes software that measures article performance against social media exposure. This enables newspapers to filter through all of the content receiving those that are generating the most interest in the Twitterverse and other social media venues.

“There is so much content out there and candidly much of it is recycled and “spun” articles. Our Sociative software enables us to weed through the thousands of articles daily and provide a white labeled content stream for our newspapers of only the best relevant articles and videos.”, noted John Fujii, Cross-Post President and COO.

Newspapers and broadcast media publishers can bolt the white-labeled content stream onto their existing recruitment platform or get it for free with Careerpointe with a rev share income opportunity as well. Content changes daily and articles are ranked by the number of people visiting them and trends on Social Media.

“One of the biggest complaints we here from publishers is that the careers/recruitment space is so niche that existing staff members are limited in what they can write on the subject. Content drives traffic and top content drives even more visitors to their websites and job pages. Having the best and brightest thought leaders in the industry providing content helps the publishers and those writing the content as each click often generates revenue to them.” Said George Dratelis, Director of Business Development.

Cross-Post LLC Doubles Down on Technology Events

Social Media, SEO and Predictive Analytics lead conference topics in Europe and USA.

Cross-Post LLC

Athens, Greece (October 26, 2014) — Cross-Post LLC, parent company of Careerpointe™ Recruitment Classifieds Platform and Cross-Post Classified Networks, is attending two international recruitment events this week focused on Social Media, SEO and Predictive Analytics.

The International Classified Media Association #ICMAAthens annual conference was attended by CEO Carl Braun and Director of Business Development George Dratelis. The event, held in Athens, Greece featured speakers from Europe, Africa and the USA and was held at the Intercontinental Hotel.

On Monday, October 27, Braun will be flying from Zurich to Las Vegas to participate in the International Association of Employment websites, (IAEWS) Fall Congress, which will be attended by more than 100 CEO’s of employment websites and associated services.

“In the history of the job board business we have never seen more attention paid to advanced technologies delivering improved results from SEO, Social/Mobile and Predictive Analytics. The future of our industry will be controlled as much or more from activities in the back of the house as from marketing efforts on the customer side. Mobile will top the list and events like these are a wonderful opportunity to network and share ideas,” noted Braun.

According to Google, mobile search eclipsed desktop recently with 54% of users on a smartphone or tablet.

“Europe has a fresh way of looking at traffic development and innovative strategies for employment websites I think,” said Braun. “Several of the folks that are here in Greece at this event will also be attending IAEWS.” He added.

Cross-Post launched the Careerpointe™ Recruitment Classifieds Platform earlier this year from a partnership meeting they had with CareerLeaf of Toronto, Canada at the Spring IAEWS Congress in Nashville. Their award winning (ONREC2014) Tracklet™ technology is now a key component of the Careerpointe™ platform.

Braun and Dratelis plan on taking information and partnerships made at these events to create the next generation of candidate-focused job boards.

“Don’t be too surprised if International plays a huge role in the next product launch.” Dratelis said.

First step towards guaranteed network results for client newspapers.

Cross-Post LLC

Cross-Post LLC Launches Recruitment Classifieds Platform

Cross-Post LLC

New option for employers provides a lower cost, responsively designed platform with award winning tools to improve the candidate experience.

Petaluma, CA, USA (August 20, 2014) — Cross-Post LLC announced today the launch of its new CareerPointe™ Recruitment Classifieds Platform designed for the newspaper industry. Cross-Post LLC, the leader in providing niche recruitment networks for ten years, serves nearly 200 newspapers in North America offering products that enable publishers to help employers recruit in specialty niche markets. Their SocialJobWorking® Network transformed the industry and other networks like Diversity, Veterans, Healthcare, Nursing, Trucking and others utilize some of the largest job boards on the web to deliver qualified talent at a fraction of the cost.

Careerpointe Logo

“We have listened to our customer’s needs for a stable, cost effective and responsive Recruitment Classifieds Platform. The key challenges they face with their existing platforms are mobile and social compatibility, flexibility, ease of use and most importantly tools to improve the candidate experience. We have responded with a comprehensive design that includes an award winning (ONREC 2014) technology developed by Careerleaf of Toronto Canada that puts control of a candidate’s careers back in their hands.” noted Carl Braun, Co-Founder and CEO. “The trend was a very important topic at the recent IAEWS Conference (International Association of Employment Websites) in Nashville,” he added.

Careerleaf founder Afifa Siddiqui agrees. “Careerleaf is very excited about being the technology behind CareerPointe. Our mandate is to create an exceptional candidate experience to empower job seekers with huge value while building loyalty with the platform.”

Careerpointe™ will be made available to existing as well as future potential clients with very competitive pricing and no long-term contracts making it both affordable and lucrative as newspapers and publishers will have several new options for earning additional, incremental revenue, but more importantly the candidate stickiness that other job boards lack which makes the revenue gains even more achievable. “Newspapers have a loyal, local audience. Once that readership realizes they can use the newspaper platform to manage all of their job search efforts, no matter what the site, they will respond accordingly.” Braun noted.

“Historically, job boards have placed primary focus on employer acquisition. The candidate relationship has been assumed. Essentially its been ‘If we build it they will come’ Today, there are so many options for passive and active candidates that they can be quite selective on which boards they work with and which companies they ultimately work for. Careerpointe™ is one stop shopping for job candidates. They can use the free tools to do everything from apply with a mobile device to search for free online courses to improve their resumes and their knowledge.” said John Fujii, Cross-Post President and Co-Founder.

The Newspaper Recruitment Classifieds platform was designed exclusively for the newspaper industry and helps them generate revenue easier from niche networks and other products not currently available in the marketplace. It connects seamlessly to all existing sales systems.

“I am TRULY amazed with CareerPointe™. As recruiting professionals, we try to make sure we are constantly evolving. Careerpointe™ adapts to new SEO requirements instantly and provides innovative tools to maximize revenue from an enhanced candidate experience.” noted Chelle Bize, former Manager of Recruitment Advertising with the Las Vegas Review Journal and Manager of Special Projects for the Technology Division of Southern Nevada Goodwill.

“Cross-Post has doubled in size in the last two years due to unique partnerships and an eye on the future of our industry. We have taken that growth and doubled down on new and innovative products for our customers who are intrigued about hire performing, lower cost options.” Said Braun.
