)-- With unemployment rates soaring to historical highs, the whole jobsite community has seen a remarkable growth in online traffic. This comes as no surprise to an industry that expected to see waves of professionals reaching out in desperation. What is surprising, however, is where this traffic is going.
IVYEXEC.com is reporting 181% year to year increase in traffic. The reason behind this astounding number: Layoffs have severely affected senior level executives.
In the world of niche online job boards, IVYEXEC.com is proving to be a trusted resource for highly qualified professionals. Middle to Senior Management professionals are drawn to IVY EXEC’s promise of exclusivity and personalized approach to online recruiting.
“Based on our analysis, we have determined that 76% of our members are passive job seekers. Most of the new traffic we have seen has come from professionals who are looking for a job insurance policy”, says Elena Bajic, Founder and CEO of the company.
“We provide people with the resources to stay abreast on their industry’s hiring trends”.
IVYEXEC.com is also known for utilizing strategic alliances to make their exclusive job postings available to a larger audience. The beginning of 2009 brought a partnership with NAWMBA, The National Association of Women MBA. This is the first of several deals in the pipeline.
The projections for this year indicate a 100% increase in IVY EXEC’s membership base.
“While the increase in traffic is an important validation for us, we are focused on bringing more exclusive jobs to our members. We are staying true to our high standards as our roster of employers expands. Our members are the most qualified professionals in the market and it is only natural that we bring to them the best opportunities”, says Bajic.
