Two Industry Leaders Join Forces to Evolve Career Center Marketplace
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla, September 15, 2014 – YourMembership.com announced today that it will acquire JobTarget’s Career Center Business Unit, adding a more robust and complementary platform to its Association Career Network service. Their partnership marks a turning point in the industry, combining the strongest career center platform and services model with the best media and advertising sales force in the marketplace. Both companies are excited to provide unprecedented opportunities for their customers. JobTarget OneClick will continue to operate as an independent company, led by its Founder & CEO Andrew Banever.
“YourMembership.com and JobTarget both share a common vision for personalized member and user interaction across the web, mobile and social channels,” said JP Guilbault, President and CEO of YourMembership.com. “By combining our formidable technology resources, we will accelerate the development of software that helps associations and publishers stay relevant to their members and readers, help those professionals achieve career success, and access a full suite of complimentary services, anchored by the world’s strongest, integrated cloud-based membership software.”
With the addition of JobTarget’s Career Center Business Unit, YourMembership.com will now serve an expanded customer base of over 4,300 organizations worldwide. This includes over 2,500 job boards utilized by over one million employers and millions of registered job seekers. Customers will now have access to the largest recruitment ad sales force and the benefits of JobTarget’s platform, which maximizes engagement by displaying relevant jobs and advertising across multiple channels. This creates significant opportunity for YourMembership.com to increase revenue for all career center customers. The addition will also result in larger technology and product development teams as well as larger client success teams, making it even easier for associations and publishers to engage members and users, and help hundreds of thousands of employers worldwide recruit top quality niche talent.
“Joining together greatly increases the value we will create for customers,” said Tristan Jordan, Senior Vice President, JobTarget Career Center Business Unit. “YourMembership.com is widely known to have the most effective recruitment ad sales infrastructure to grow career center revenue, and JobTarget’s leadership is built on unmatched technology and service. Our customers will now have access to the best of both, in addition to larger combined IT development resources which will accelerate our innovation.”
YourMembership.com’s career center business will be headed by Tristan Jordan, who recently led JobTarget’s Career Center Business Unit, and all of JobTarget’s career center employees will be joining YourMembership.com’s 200+ employee family.
YourMembership.com’s headquarters will remain in St. Petersburg, Florida, with additional offices in Austin, Texas, New London, Connecticut and Slough, United Kingdom.
