Jobster and PayScale Seal Partnership
PayScale to provide Jobster.com users with direct access to real-time salary information
SEATTLE, August 31, 2006 - Seattle-based firms, Jobster and PayScale, announced today their partnership agreement and technology integration. Jobster, an online recruiting service that simplifies the difficult process of making successful career matches for both jobseekers and employers, and PayScale, a market leader in online compensation and benefits information and host to the largest ongoing salary survey in the world, will provide jobseekers and employers with the freshest online job postings combined with valuable compensation intelligence.
Jobster will integrate a "Research salary on PayScale" link into every job listing giving Jobster users direct access to the most up to date salary information for each job listing search. In addition, PayScale will promote targeted Jobster job listings within My PayScale giving PayScale users access to highly relevant job opportunities while researching salary information.
"Jobster believes that access to user generated content from employees is essential to making great career decisions. For this reason, we are excited to partner with PayScale to provide Jobster.com users with insightful and relevant salary ranges they can expect in their future employment opportunities," said Jobster CEO Jason Goldberg. "The detailed salary information provided by PayScale will give jobseekers a more complete picture of the jobs they are most interested in."
The Jobster.com and PayScale partnership will strategically marry career and salary searches. For example, a person living in Boston, but seeking a career opportunity in San Francisco would use the Jobster.com search engine to find relevant job opportunities in the Bay Area indexed from a number of job boards and employer sites from all across the web. Once the jobseeker identifies the job that best matches their interests, they can quickly click on a PayScale link to bring up a salary range for that particular job listing.
"PayScale's focus is making real-time and accurate salary intelligence easily available to employees and job-seekers. Our new relationship with Jobster is a perfect fit because it brings together job postings and the specific position's compensation," said Mike Metzger, President and CEO for PayScale. "With this joint solution, individuals can quickly and efficiently receive active and real job opportunities from Jobster as well as credible and current salary information from PayScale for the specific jobs being searched."
