MB Job Board Advertisers Get More Than Great Candidates

If you’re hiring for a media position, you know the first place you should look.

No, not craigslist, sillies.

Mediabistro.com’s job board not only attracts the best and brightest in media (aka everyone reading this, right?) but job advertisers sometimes get neat stuff. It’s karma. Like Ray Vollmer, HR director at NewBay Media (which just purchased Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News from Reed Business Information), who just won two tickets to see the Knicks play the Lakers, an incredible $440 value. (Do people really pay that much to watch sports in New York?)

Vollmer, when interviewed by our sales department about the win, said he was “surprised” to hear that he’d scored the tickets. “I never win anything,” he added.

And why does he advertise on Mediabistro? “Because it is a one stop shop for great candidates within the media industry,” he told our sales team.

So hey, recruiters and HR people. Post some jobs, and we might send some bakshish your way. Sort of.
