National employment website, CareerOne.com.au, and online marketplace, eBay.com.au, today announced the launch of eBay Jobs™ located on the web at http://ebay.careerone.com.au
A strategic partnership between the two brands, eBay Jobs™, powered by CareerOne.com.au, will let eBay users search for jobs and access career advice on eBay.com.au in a world-first integration for the online shopping giant.
Dr. Stephen Hollings, chief executive officer of News Digital Careers said that eBay Jobs™ was another step forward in strengthening the CareerOne.com.au brand in 2008.
“eBay is an international success story. At CareerOne.com.au, we are privileged to be partnering with such a reputable brand in this ‘first of its kind’ initiative.
“This partnership extends CareerOne.com.au’s reach to eBay’s 5.3 million monthly visitors, and puts our advertisers’ jobs in front of a growing audience. In addition to the hundreds of millions of products on-sale at eBay.com.au, members can now search for their next job on the site.”
Sharon Scheepers, Senior Director at eBay, said that CareerOne.com.au was a perfect fit for eBay.
“Being able to provide broader, complimentary offerings to eBay.com.au members is important. CareerOne.com.au’s extensive job listings, in-depth editorial advice and job hunting tools, provide the right combination of content for eBay.com.au members searching for the best products and services.”
Linked from the eBay.com.au homepage, eBay Jobs™ will feature the following tools to help eBay job-hunters:
- CareerOne.com.au job search box
- Job Hunting Toolkit (including a salary calculator, sample resumes, email Job Alerts and a career newsletter)
- Links to the well-known ‘Ask Kate’ career advice column
