Over Half a Million Americans Have Visited .Jobs Universe Within Weeks of its Launch

Published: Friday, 18 Feb 2011 | 7:30 AM ET

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Within three short weeks of its launch, the .Jobs Universe Web site (www.universe.jobs) is fulfilling its vision of providing job seekers easy access to employment listings on the Internet. Over half a million Americans have visited the .Jobs Top-Level Domain (TLD) that includes over forty-thousand geographical, occupational, and country-name domains ending in the intuitive .Jobs suffix.

Amazingly intuitive, job seekers can simply type a location or occupation into their browser, for example: www.boston.jobs, www.nursing.jobs, www.insurance.jobs, www.technology.jobs and www.usa.jobs. The .Jobs Universe provides a quick, easy and direct connection to the hiring employer resulting in a faster, more efficient hiring process.

Over 550 leading U.S. employers, including some of the largest companies in the world, have joined forces to transform how people use the Internet to quickly and efficiently locate valid employment opportunities. With over 800,000 jobs from more than 89,000 employers and rapidly growing, .Jobs Universe creates an environment of seamlessly integrated employment domains which is revolutionary for both the online recruitment industry and the Internet. The .Jobs domains are used as job seeker entry points to vetted, trusted and relevant employment-related job content.

Employers have rallied around the ambitious plan that allows all companies, regardless of size or industry, to list jobs free of charge, automatically upload new listings on a daily basis, and automatically distribute job listings to relevant web sites. For example, a Providence Health & Services listing for Nurses in Seattle will be distributed to multiple relevant websites, such as www.seattle.jobs, www.nursing.jobs and www.seattlenursing.jobs.

Simon Evans, Vice President for Recruiting and Internal Mobility at SRA International states, “We don’t post all of our positions elsewhere because I can’t afford it. Imagine what that means for small businesses. Providing a free job posting option is invaluable.” About DirectEmployers Association DirectEmployers Association, Inc. is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit, 550-member employer association.
