ALA JobLIST, the online career center for job seekers and employers in library and information science and technology, has been voted a 2016 User’s Choice Award winner in WEDDLE’s Media Group’s annual survey of job seekers, recruiters, and employers.
WEDDLE’s Media Group, whose guides have been described by the American Staffing Association as the “Zagat” of job boards, hosts this survey to determine the top 25 sites for job seekers and recruiters. The competition is open to any online employment services site worldwide, including more than 150,000 such sites in the U.S. alone, with voting conducted all year long on weddles.com. This year, over 3,800 ballots were cast to select the winners. For a complete list of the winners, visit the WEEDLE’s website.
As Peter Weddle, CEO of WEDDLE’s Media Group, notes, “There is no higher accolade than to be recognized by your customers, and job seekers and recruiters have spoken – these 25 sites are the elite among job boards worldwide.”
The User’s Choice Awards have been held for eleven years, providing both recruiters and job seekers a voice in the online job market. The awards program isn’t designed to be a scientific survey, but is a valid measure of the support individual sites have among their users.
“We are so honored to hear that our job seekers and recruiters took the time to recognize us with this award,” said ACRL Classified Ads Coordinator David Connolly. “With ALA JobLIST busier than ever since the launch of its all-new site several months ago, we will continue to look for ways to connect qualified professionals with even more terrific opportunities in library and information science and technology in 2016.”
