Bedford NH - October 22, 2007 - Hireskills.com, the leader in web-based hiring solutions for the graphic arts industry, has announced an exclusive contract with WorkBlast.com, the leader in video resumes, to provide video, audio and rich media resumes for candidates in the printing, publishing and packaging industries.  WorkBlast will power the Hireskills.com video resume database by providing the ability to create audio and video resumes through the Hireskills website and giving employers the ability to search the database on both WorkBlast.com and Hireskills.com.  They will also be available on the new Hi-Res Skills interactive hiring and blog site. 
This partnership with Workblast.com is the latest in announcements of Hireskills.com upgrades reflecting the corporation's dedication to attracting and retaining the finest talent in the graphic arts industry.  "Workblast.com has developed the finest product on the market", said Hireskills.com's GM Jack Lecza.  "We now can offer our industry's hiring managers the first and most robust virtual review of candidates available.  With our video resume capability powered by Workblast.com, hiring managers from anywhere in the country can view video introductions of candidates from anywhere else in the country, assessing their academic and professional capabilities."
"This will save Hireskills.com customers significant bottom line dollars traditionally spent in the interviewing process", said Hireskills.com Chairman David Clark.  "This is a quantum leap for our industry and another in a line of added capabilities Hireskills.com is bringing to our industry that will help to attract and retain the finest talent available".   
CEO of WorkBlast, Nick Murphy, is excited about the new partnership with Hireskills and the capabilities Workblast.com brings to the business community.  The release of WorkBlast 2.0 has given industry the ability to provide job boards, community sites, associations and universities with their own video resume database technology.
Murphy urges website owners to consider adding a video-based resume and job database to their existing services.  "WorkBlast is offering a unique opportunity to provide niche job boards, community sites and universities with a passive revenue stream, while providing a competitive advantage, enhancing their user experience and increasing their web traffic," says Nick Murphy.   "The ability to create video resumes is something that has been extremely well received by the employers and job seekers that currently use Hireskills.com," says Jack Lecza.  "The ability for us to add video resumes without incurring any development or implementation costs is huge for our users and for our business.  What a win-win!"
