First Employment Application For City Site Network
Cox Interactive Media of Atlanta announced a multimillion-dollar deal yesterday with
Headhunter.net, an online employment site based in Gwinnett County, Ga., to create a
jobs channel. The employment section will run on Cox’s 30 city sites beginning April 1.
Some of Cox’s city guides have had their own job channels, created with content from
the local Cox newspaper, the local site itself, or another local provider. This will be
the first employment application deployed across the Cox network.
Under the deal, Headhunter.net purchased anchor space on the city sites and will offer
readers access to its database of over 300,000 r?sum?s and 180,000 current job listings.
The new jobs channel will be heavily promoted through Cox’s television, radio, and online
Headhunter.net was ranked the No. 6 online employment site for January by Media Metrix with
893,000 unique visitors.
