Andy Beal, the Marketing Pilgrim, is launching a job board in an effort to assist ex-MarketSmart Interactive employees. As you might recall, MarketSmart Interactive has recently laid off their internet marketing employees and is no longer offering internet marketing/search engine marketing services.
With the laying-off of so many talented marketers from MarketSmart Interactive, I wanted to give them as much help as I can in finding a new home. So, I’m inviting any employer to post their job listing for FREE, using the coupon code PILGRIMBETA. The coupon is good for a single-category, 30-day listing and expires February 12th. After that it’s just $47 a listing.
If you use the PILGRIMBETA code then you can get listed for free; it expires February 12, 2007. These free listings are primarily for MarketSmart Interactive, but there are actually other reasons why Andy is launching this internet marketing job board. I, too, have been inundated by requests from recruiters looking to help hire people in the internet marketing industry.
For many years, I’ve received emails from recruiters, asking me to recommend someone for an open position. I’ve also had many marketers contact me with their resume, asking if I know of any company hiring. Finally the light-bulb went on and, thanks to a partnership with JobThread.com, I’ve launched a job board dedicated to online marketing careers.
Helping us with the launch are jobs listings from Microsoft, iProspect, High Rankings, SEO Inc, Channel Advisor, The Rimm-Kaufman Group and Fox Interactive Media.
The new job board is here, go ahead and check it out. The site allows “companies to post their open job listings for any position related to internet marketing, online advertising, web development, blogging and search engine marketing.”
I have to admit that we’ve received a few requests from recruiters to add a job board or their job posting to the Dallas Fort Worth Search Engine Marketing Association website, but from now on I think I’ll just go ahead and forward any of these requests to the new Marketing Pilgrim internet marketing job board. By the way, I’ll be adding some positions to the board there, as well; MarketNet.com is looking for some good search engine marketers.
