Expands Its Social/Employment Platform in Mid-Atlantic Region with well-known brand
Beyond.com Inc., The Career Network, today announced the acquisition of strategic assets of Human Capital Solutions, LLC (d/b/a JobCircle.com), through its subsidiary Career Management Solutions, LLC. JobCircle.com is a leading online job portal for employers and job seekers in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. The acquisition enables Beyond.com the opportunity to expand The Career Network online with virtual career fairs and offline with live career events in several markets, including the Tri-State area (PA, NJ, and DE) and the IT vertical market.
JobCircle.com provides its 1.3 million registered members with an array of tools to simplify job posting and candidate search processes. Founded in 1998, it’s best known for developing and producing targeted career fairs and events tailored to more than 18 industry categories.
“While employers and job seekers are increasingly interacting through our online channels, we recognize that a large part of the hiring process takes place face-to-face,” said Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com. “Today’s acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to streamlining the hiring cycle for our employers while providing our more than 25 million members with comprehensive products and services that help them create smart and valuable connections.”
As a result of this acquisition, Joe Stubblebine, CEO and co-founder of Human Capital Solutions LLC, will be joining Beyond.com as Vice President of Corporate Outreach.
“Partnering with Beyond.com gives us the opportunity to bring our proven track record of developing engaging recruitment and enrichment events to a much larger audience,” said Stubblebine. “We’re excited to join one of the true leaders in the HR and career development industry.”
