The two companies largely complement each other in purpose and mission, each dedicated to providing the job seeker with the right tools and insight needed to secure a job in today’s marketplace.
“For over 20 years, I saw a desperate need for people to understand online job search, and my goal for Job-Hunt was to help people smartly, safely, and efficiently find their new jobs,” said Susan Joyce, Job-Hunt’s chief writer, editor, and publisher since 1998. “FlexJobs was founded under a very similar premise, with a specific focus on safe job searching for flexible jobs. Both companies have made helping the job seeker their number one priority from the beginning, and I know that this acquisition will strengthen that mission and help even more job seekers be successful in their job searches,” Joyce concluded.
