Internet job board company ONTARGETJOBS has purchased radio website job listings company REGIONALHELPWANTED.COM. ONTARGETJOBS will add the new acquisition to its existing roster of career websites, including BIOSPACE.COM, HCAREERS.COM, HEALTHECAREERS.COM, MEDHUNTERS.COM, JOBLOFT.COM, and CAREERBANK.COM.
"ONTARGETJOBS is pleased to announce the acquisition of REGIONALHELPWANTED.COM, as it helps to deliver with increased precision qualified candidates to businesses of all sizes," said ALLEN PASCHAL, CEO of ONTARGETJOBS. "As the effectiveness and popularity of niche Internet communities and employment sites grow to rival the larger horizontal job boards, the addition of REGIONALHELPWANTED.COM's geo-targeted audience diversifies and strengthens ONTARGETJOBS' value proposition to its existing industry-focused client base."
ERIC STRAUS, CEO of REGIONALHELPWANTED.COM offered, "ONTARGETJOBS was the partner of choice for us as they understand the niche job industry as well or better than any other company, and the complementary fit between both organizations is what set them apart. They are leaders in their field and the localization that we bring to them will allow for best of breed advertising solutions for the entire recruitment industry."
