JobsInLogistics.com Notes Optimism for Increased Hiring in the Supply Chain Professions in 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JobsInLogistics.com Notes Optimism for Increased Hiring in the Supply Chain Professions in 2010
Nation’s largest job board for the logistics and manufacturing industries forecasts revival based on client activities

North Miami Beach, FL (Dec 31, 2009) After major layoffs and hiring freezes during 2009, there is growing optimism for renewed hiring for 2010 among the logistics and manufacturing sectors.

As the largest career board for the supply chain, distribution, warehousing, transportation and manufacturing professions, JobsInLogistics.com has become the early barometer of the hiring mood for these industries, according to president Don Firth.

“Many of our clients are expressing confidence in the economy and planning increased hiring for 2010,” said Firth. “This last two months, contracts for job postings and resume search services with JobsInLogistics.com have increased by more than 45% over the same period of 2008. Earlier this year many clients were purchasing small job posting packages to fill essential positions only. These same companies are now contracting for 10, 20 and even unlimited job posting packages with JobsInLogistics.com for 2010.”

Spurred by better-than-expected seasonal sales, the retail industry increased their job posting packages by more than 60% in December on AllRetailJobs.com, the sister job board of JobsInLogistics.com. This increased confidence by the retail industry has a domino effect on the whole supply chain, including manufacturers, importers, distributors, 3PL and transportation companies.

Financial Crisis Drives Overnight Traffic Increase on AllRetailJobs.com and JobsInLogistics.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Financial Crisis Drives Overnight Traffic Increase on AllRetailJobs.com and JobsInLogistics.com
Specialty job boards experience 30 percent increase as employees seek alternative job opportunities

North Miami Beach, FL (Oct 20, 2008) As the financial meltdown became clear on October 6, many employees rushed to find new career opportunities in the retail and distribution/transportation industries. On this date, AllRetailJobs.com and JobsInLogistics.com marked a dramatic and sustained traffic increase of more than 30%.

Over the past nine years, job seeker traffic on both job boards has maintained a steady growth, with a 3% to 5% increase each month. However, immediately following the news of the proposed financial bailout, traffic increased overnight from 35,000 to more than 45,000 visitors per day and has continued at this new plateau.

AllRetailJobs.com is the #1 job board for retail careers and JobsInLogistics.com is the #1 board for distribution and transportation professions.

The sudden spike in traffic to these industry-specialized job boards is no accident. Manufacturing, supply chain, transportation, and retail companies, which rely on consumer credit to buy their products, are increasingly susceptible to a severe downturn in business and growth during an economic crisis. With the severe credit crunch propelling thousands of American companies toward an uncertain future, employees face a challenging dilemma – how to gain reassurance in their job security and continue to seek professional advancement in these uncertain times. For many, this means pursuing a safer position before being uprooted from their current job foundation.

“As the unemployment rate and job security concerns continue to rise, an explosion of qualified candidates are entering the market seeking a stable employment alternative,” said Don Firth, President of AllRetailJobs.com and JobsInLogistics.com. “Fortunately, most major retailers and logistics companies post their jobs on our job boards, giving qualified candidates the best variety of new jobs to choose from.”

“In turn,” he added, “the marked increase in the number of experienced retail, logistics, transportation and manufacturing job seekers offers companies an opportunity to hire the best candidates for future growth.”

JobsInLogistics.com, Inc. Celebrates its 7th Anniversary with Record Sales and Traffic

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JobsInLogistics.com, Inc. Celebrates its 7th Anniversary with Record Sales and Traffic
An Idea that Grew Into a Multi-million Dollar Job Board

North Miami Beach, FL (Feb 22, 2007) Seven years after its launch as the first Job Board for the logistics, supply chain, transportation, distribution and manufacturing professions, JobsInLogistics.com maintains its dominance in this niche field. For the seventh year in succession, JobsInLogistics.com has increased annual revenue growth by more than 50%. The Resume Database now exceeds 200,000 quality candidates with specialized skills and experience in logistics operations.

“JobsInLogistics.com started as an idea in 1999,” said Don Firth, President and co-founder. “Attempting to help a friend in his search for a logistics job, we found that not even Monster.com recognized logistics as a job category. Working with my wife, Eunice and son, Jake, both of whom had hands-on experience in distribution, we designed the JobsInLogistics.com job board. As Jake programmed the site from scratch, we were concerned that someone else in the world would think of this idea and beat us to the punch. But they didn’t and we quickly built up our reputation for providing top level customer service and for filling jobs with leading logistics talent. We have since built our team to include 30 staff members in our customer service and account executive departments.”

More than 17,000 companies have registered to post jobs and search resumes on JobsInLogistics.com. Each month, JobsInLogistics.com advertises thousands of logistics jobs and attracts more than 250,000 logistics candidates to view these positions. With a large overlap of the logistics and manufacturing professions, JobsInManufacturing.com was launched three years ago. This was followed by JobsInTrucks.com, now a leading job board for hiring drivers. With continued focus on growing these complementary supply chain boards, JobsInLogistics.com is planning to further increase the number of listed jobs and candidate traffic during 2007.

Prior to launching JobsInLogistics.com, Don Firth spent 30 years working in the logistics profession, which included positions as an International Logistics Consultant and President & CEO of a $3 billion food distributor. He also edited and was principal author of two best-selling books on distribution and logistics. “We have gained personal satisfaction from creating and building a company from a sliver of an idea into a multi-million dollar organization,” said Don Firth. ‘However, the most rewarding part of JobsInLogistics.com is the knowledge that we are helping thousands of logistics professionals find their dream career opportunities in the profession in which I have devoted my entire working life. Logistics careers are both challenging and very rewarding, and being able to help logistics professionals find their dream jobs is the most powerful motivation for our continued growth and success.”
