Press release from the issuing company
Boston, MA – OCTOBER 12, 2005 – Printworkers.com, the leading Internet job board for printing, copy, and web professionals, and Printing Industries of New England (PINE) a member-driven association serving the New England graphic communications industry, announce they have collaborated on a new, enhanced job board/staffing solution for PINE members. All PINE members now have free, 24/7 Internet access to the organization’s resume bank and job board. Printworkers.com provided the technology for the web-based capabilities offered to members.
“PINE is committed to being a treasured resource for job seekers and companies in the printing and graphic arts industry. We know that the current environment is particularly tough to find qualified people, and we are making every effort to create an easier process for everyone,” comments Jim Tepper, president of PINE. “The new on-line web site provides many more options, as well as offering more powerful capabilities for everyone; job seekers and employers alike.”
Significant improvements have been made to PINE’s Job Board, which will allow employers to list available openings and search posted resumes of individuals seeking work. At www.printworkers.com/partners/pine/new-emp.cfm, services for members include free posting of job openings, reviewing listings of available candidates, and the ability to upgrade postings to a national listing and purchase resume search capabilities for a discounted fee through the PIA/GATF. In addition, PINE members are eligible for significant discounts on additional services at Printworkers.com through the GAIN website. Printworkers.com allows companies to connect with the most talented employees in print, copy, digital, and web. Members are able to save 50% on single job postings, purchase a resume search of the entire Printworkers.com resume bank, or acquire packages that include multiple job postings. And, members are always encouraged to post one free “Help wanted” ad in the New England Printer and Publisher magazine, distributed to over 4,000 readers each month.
Students, workers who have been laid off or downsized, and workers from other industries seeking a career change, are encouraged to register and post their resumes at http://www.printworkers.com/partners/pine/new-job.cfm. Their profiles will have access to local, as well as national PIA/GATF job bank positions and employers. Job seekers may also search PINE’s online job database for available opportunities. As always, PINE provides an online opportunity to purchase a ‘Position Wanted’ classified ad in New England Printer and Publisher.
“Printworkers.com is pleased to help PINE members receive the resources needed to find competent staff. We believe our job and resume posting tools bring about a competitive advantage, allowing companies to benefit from high quality staffing services,” remarks Brian Regan, Printworkers.com COO. “As an organization with roots in printing, we feel an obligation to support job seekers and employers in the industry.”
