eCareer Holdings is rapidly expanding its influence in the human resources, staffing and recruiting communities through the continued development of Openreq.com. According to a recent press release, the company’s site, which serves as a leading news source for professionals in the field of hiring, has experienced a 1000 percent increase in traffic since its November 2014 re-launch.
Through Openreq, eCareer Holdings is changing the way organizations advertise online by creating a viral and content-driven career community. Combining a source of exclusive stories, videos, news and comic relief targeted towards hiring professionals with a proven job board platform, the company is crafting a one-stop solution to the evolving employment marketplace.
“After analyzing Openreq.com’s traffic last year we recognized the incredible potential the site offered,” stated Joe Azzata, CEO of eCareer Holdings. “We set out to achieve this success with a complete overhaul of the website, the addition of a powerful job board platform and implementation of a new ‘viral news’ design.”
The company reports that it has received positive feedback from both job advertisers and industry professionals regarding the re-launch, and it expects to see continued growth moving forward. As a result, the company has already completed its first expansion of the Openreq sales team, and it expects to hire additional full-time sales professionals in the upcoming months.
eCareer Holdings could be growing in the jobs market at the perfect time. According to a report by Forbes, 2014 was the best year for job growth since 1999, featuring impressive growth in nearly every industry. Conjunctively, Jobvite found that 94 percent of recruiters use or plan to use social media for recruiting, because it results in an estimated 49 percent boost in overall candidate quality.
As it continues to target staffing and recruiting companies in the U.S., along with hiring personnel throughout the Fortune 2000, expect eCareer Holdings to make significant strides in the competitive online job board marketplace. With Openreq’s “Daily News” subscription service having already added upwards of 23,000 daily subscribers since the re-launch, early indications look extremely positive for the short-term growth potential of both the site and eCareer Holdings.
