CareerBuilder.com to Power Career Site for UNIVISION.COM
CHICAGO, November 5, 2003
- CareerBuilder.com, the smarter recruitment resource for finding better candidates and jobs, announced it has signed a 15-month agreement with Univision Online, Inc., which operates the leading Spanish-language website in the United States, Univision.com (www.univision.com). Under the agreement, CareerBuilder.com will power a new co-branded, bilingual career site for Univision.com. The bilingual site will also be available on Univision.com’s local station websites in key Hispanic markets.
"Close to eleven percent of the U.S. workforce is Hispanic," said Amado Izaguirre, Vice- President of Business Development for CareerBuilder.com. "Univision.com is the leading source of information and a strong vehicle for reaching U.S. Hispanics. The partnership combines the broad distribution networks and quality service of two market leaders to bring more employment tools to the fast-growing Hispanic community in the U.S."
The U.S. Hispanic population is now the country's largest minority, and the Internet is the fastest growing medium among Hispanics. U.S. Census figures show that there are 38.8 million Hispanics living in the U.S. Since April 2000, the Hispanic population grew four times faster than the total U.S. population, thereby, making Hispanics the largest and fastest-growing demographic.
"With more Hispanics online today than ever before, it is imperative to offer a faster and more efficient means for companies and job seekers to interact," said Javier Saralegui, President of Univision Online. "We believe working with CareerBuilder.com is the most strategic way to meet this goal. CareerBuilder.com specializes in smart online recruitment tools and shares our commitment to helping the Hispanic community get the information they need to get ahead."
