LocalCareers.com Acquires FloridaJobs.com

LocalCareers.com, a nationwide network of state and industry-specific job boards, purchased the FloridaJobs.com domain name and client base from Florida-based PRS Recruiting and Staffing Services. The purchase was made Friday November 10, and the new FloridaJobs.com went live today.

Previously, LocalCareers.com operated under the local domain, FloridaCareers.com.
Now, FloridaCareers.com and FloridaJobs.com employer and job seeker databases are combined and operated by parent company, LocalCareers.com. The new domain acquisition will strengthen the organization’s presence among Florida job seekers and employers with its top search engine result placement.

Already, the new FloridaJobs.com boasts over 3,600 job postings in over 130 categories and allows all users to search jobs and post their resumes for free. The site also provides up-to-date job fair listings and career articles.

FloridaJobs.com is the third major acquisition for LocalCareers.com in 2006. Earlier domain purchases included MarylandJobs.com and AlaskaJobs.com. Since its foundation in 1997, LocalCareers.com has continually expanded to include 50 state and 15 industry-specific sites.
