Online Business TV channel offers bounty via leading Web 2.0 job board in hunt for top talent

Online business TV channel yourBusinessChannel (, has partnered with innovative job search site JOBX (, becoming the first company in New Zealand to offer a referral “bounty” via the state of the art job board. A new concept in online job boards, JOBX solves the shortcomings that hound traditional job boards by incorporating the best of Web 2.0 social media technologies so that employers and job seekers can find each other faster.

yourBusinessChannel is currently seeking a talented flash developer to deliver flash developments and contribute to the technical aspects of production of upcoming shows. And in a move to attract the best talent, the company is offering a NZ$300 bounty for anyone who recommends a friend who ultimately gets the job.

Global Syndication Manager Andre Dent said “We’re an innovative technology company, so it makes sense that we use the latest Web 2.0 technology to attract the right people. Offering a great “bounty” just sweetens the deal, and we know it will help us find the right person, fast. JOBX will undoubtedly get us access to the people we need, fast.”

Already attracting tens of thousands of job seekers in Australia, JOBX hit New Zealand late last month, and has quickly attracted thousands of job listings.
