Yesterday and this morning, reports indicated that Yahoo wasn’t having much luck selling its small business unit and HotJobs. HotJobs has, however, found a new home. This afternoon, Monster announced that it’s agreed to acquire the property for $225 million, and Monster’s reached a traffic agreement with Yahoo, too.
Go to the Yahoo Small Business homepage, and you’ll be informed that "PC Magazine named us ‘Editors’ Choice.’" It seems that not many other entities are interested in either Yahoo’s small business unit or HotJobs, however, as plans to sell both may have fallen through.
Yahoo’s seen a lot of activity on the personnel front in recent months; loads of employees have quit or been laid off, even as few new ones have joined the team. Now, the corporation-level equivalent of this exchange seems to be taking place, as reports indicate that Yahoo’s acquired one company and is trying to sell two properties.
Today Yahoo! released what it refers to as the first performance-based online recruitment product, Yahoo! HotJobs Pay Per Candidate. The new HotJobs feature lets recruiters pay for candidates instead of just per listing.
The idea is that this will help recruiters tie their dollars directly to their results. The recruitment community will get its first look at the product at the upcoming Society for Human Resource Management conference starting June 28 in New Orleans.
When I first learned of this development, I was led to believe that it involved over 1,200 newspapers. It doesn’t – the deal actually affects less than 300. But that’s still noteworthy, and so, without further ado, I’d like to inform you that Yahoo HotJobs and GateHouse Media have forged a partnership.
Usually, when I go home for the day, I unplug. Unplugging means not even jacked in wirelessly: cell phone is off; computer (if I can help it) is off; laptop is off. The same goes for the weekend; if you want to get a hold of me, it can wait until Monday. Home is home, work is work, and I’m quite strict about their separation.
Yahoo’s HotJobs division and the Job Network have entered into a partnership designed to aid newspapers in posting employment advertising to the HotJobs Web site, the third largest job site on the Web.
"We believe this agreement will help the nation’s community newspapers protect and enhance their leadership role in recruitment/employment advertising," said Marc Wilson, president of The Job Network. "Newspapers hold the traditional role of serving their communities’ advertising needs. This alliance should strengthen that role."
First on the Web, now at Barnes & Noble, Yahoo! announced today the release of three books designed to help job seekers improve their chances of placement and career success. The series is authored by Yahoo! HotJobs in-house career experts Dan Finnigan and Marc Karasu and published by Sterling Publishing.
Yahoo has been taking a great deal of flap for their decision to allow their HotJobs search engine to scrape job listings from other sites. The general consensus among many bloggers is that this is a poor choice on Yahoo’s behalf, which leads to a question: Why?
When it comes to covering the search engine industry, the press seems to begin and end with Google happenings, something this author is guilty of as well. However, it’s always nice to cover the happenings of Google’s competitors, provided they’ve done something to warrant said coverage.
