Indianapolis, IN – October 19, 2009 – DirectEmployers Association is helping companies and job seekers connect more efficiently without the filter and costs of a third-party commercial enterprise. Previously when a job seeker searched for jobs on Google the results were dominated by third-party job boards. Thanks to DirectEmployers, now more and more of those results are populated by employers.

“Even in a tight economy there are over 3 million jobs available in the U.S. Job seekers need to be able to locate these jobs and feel they have a legitimate place to apply. What better place to apply for a job than with the actual company who is doing the hiring and what better place to locate that job than directly with the employer?” stated Bill Warren DirectEmployers Association’s Executive Director.

DirectEmployers, a non-profit association comprised of more than 70% of America’s Fortune 500 companies, is helping its Members by making their job offerings easier for job seekers to find through searches on Google, Yahoo, Bing and other major search engines. Utilizing Search Engine Optimization (SEO), eighty-two (82) organizations including Kodak, Providence Healthcare, and McGraw Hill have taken advantage of this free SEO solution. Job seekers will now be able to go straight to their corporate career sites and apply directly to the company, eliminating the middle man.

SEO has been a buzz word in the Web 2.0 world and recruiters within leading U.S. companies have been trying to find an inexpensive way to test the waters. They understand that they must find more ways to promote their jobs.

Tom Eckhart, DirectEmployers Association’s Vice President, said, “Instead of going to a vendor and spending a minimum of $10,000 or hiring additional resources in house, our Members come to us for SEO, Federal Contractor Job Listing Compliance, and many other solutions. DirectEmployers Association is a member owned and operated human resources trade association focusing on making recruiting more effective and efficient.”
