In a blog post by Ray Fassett, (Operations and Policy for .jobs) dated November 9, 2009 titled .JOBS: Why DirectEmployers?  Ray answers the question that continues to be asked how does an EXCLUSIVE relationship between EmployMedia and DirectEmployers help the HR community?

Ray states, Let me be clear that .jobs has not provided the DirectEmployers Association with an exclusive.  And .jobs has not provided DirectEmployers members with an exclusive.  So let’s dispel these myths right out of the gate.  In fact, .jobs could not provide DirectEmployers Association, or its members, with an exclusive even if we wanted to.  Their by-laws simply will not allow it – and this speaks volumes in and of itself.

What .jobs has done is provide an opportunity for all employer organizations worldwide to participate and to share on equal footing all geographic and occupational names in .jobs. Our relationship with DirectEmployers Association is what enables this.”

DirectEmployers is an Association bound by by-laws that require decisions be made in the interests of all employer organizations; we’re an association formed to share resources specific to hiring objectives and enable employers to leverage their use of the Internet.  We have a highly competent Board of Directors comprised solely of strategic HR professionals.

These strategic HR professionals provide the guidance and direction for the association always keeping the interests of the employers and job seekers at the forefront of any decisions made.

Employers like Newell Rubbermaid, General Dynamics, Level 3 Communications and over 10 others who cumulatively hire hundreds of thousands of employees each year sit on this Board.

These employers understand the challenges job seekers and employers face day in and day out.
