"4Jobs.com Career Network Leaps Beyond.com"
June 13th, 2005
Artemis HR, Inc. parent company of the 4Jobs.com Career Network (www.4Jobs.com), has expanded its operations beyond careers to include complimentary business and lifestyle-related technology and resources. To reflect its commitment to the new positioning, the company changed its corporate name to Beyond.com and invested in the acquisition of the Web address, Beyond.com.
Beyond.com will now deliver technology, products, services, tools and resources for the business professional during their entire business life. While maintaining a focus on career development, Beyond.com will provide solutions in the areas of education; certification and training; web search; life management; and personal and professional networking.
Further supporting the expanded brand, Beyond.com makes available government services for business professionals and access to the newly launched Search Simpleton, an online career search directory.
The 4Jobs.com Career Network, now re-named the Beyond.com Career Network, consists of more than 6,700 online communities designed to connect business professionals with companies and vertical communities. It also delivers Web communities with their own career centers including localized job content, career services and special job-hunting tools, such as customized e-mail accounts and live chat.
"For any business professional, their career is part of their daily concerns, but far from all of them," said Richard Milgram, original Artemis HR founder and CEO of Beyond.com. "The new brand's larger, more expansive platform delivers significantly greater value to the business professional as they progress through their career, business and life. With 4Jobs.com dominating the niche job board industry, the natural next step was to grow the company beyond that initial focus and expand upon our business model."
New services available under the Beyond.com banner include:
Beyond Education! - Education-related content, products and services;
Beyond Life! - Tools and services relating to money management, insurance, real estate, relocation and relationships;
Beyond Government! - Connecting business professionals with government agencies and services;
Beyond Search Network! - Featuring a variety of niche business professional search functions, directories and engines, it is home to the newly launched Search Simpleton, an online directory of more than 1,000 industry and job function-specific search engines and Web communities.
"These new services and resources are specifically designed to appeal to job seekers and business professionals," added Milgram. "They are fundamental in Beyond.com's strategy of attracting partnerships with corporate employers, advertising and staffing agencies, vertical businesses and Web communities."
