SEEK and XtraMSN Sign Long-term Content Distribution Deal
The leading employment website SEEK will continue as the exclusive provider of careers content to New Zealand’s largest online audience through to 2007, following the announcement today of a major content distribution deal by SEEK and New Zealand’s leading Internet portal, XtraMSN.
The extended agreement will see XtraMSN users continue to have access to SEEK’s job search service, together with online training, certification tools and career development advice. With over 1.6 million unique New Zealand visitors to its site every month, XtraMSN offers SEEK unmatched reach as well as integration with other XtraMSN content and tools.
Andrew Bassat, Executive Director, SEEK, said, “SEEK and XtraMSN are a perfect fit as they are both leaders in their respective fields. We are thrilled to continue to work with XtraMSN on such a long term arrangement and continue to offer XtraMSN users the largest selection of job opportunities and career services within the one site.”
He declared, “Our agreement with XtraMSN demonstrates SEEK's commitment to a world-class distribution network. It delivers our advertisers access to the largest online audience in New Zealand, and places their job ads in front of 'passive' jobseekers, providing valuable access to candidates who are well qualified but may not be actively looking for a new role."
