Internet Users Seek More Jobs In New Zealand

New Zealand, 24 November 1999/MediaNet International-AsiaNet/-- SEEK Communications, New Zealand's premier Internet-only employment classifieds site, is changing the way New Zealanders find work, with the announcement today of a unique partnership agreement with the country's leading radio station, More FM.

The result of the partnership is a co-branded web site, located at www.seekmore.co.nz. The SeekMore site offers career advice, an e-mail job alert, a resume building tool, as well as links to the More FM homepage.

More FM sees this alliance as an extension of the company's existing communications strategy, as well as a vital service for the station's listening audience.

"We have been developing our Internet strategy over the past few years, and are very excited to join with a leading Internet company such as SEEK." says Brent Impey, More FM's national general manager.

"This is a great service for our audience to gain access to the employment market, and SEEK users can find out more about More FM whilst they are looking for work, it's a win - win situation!"

The partnership will also be a huge win for SEEK, as promotions through More FM will drive additional traffic to the web site. "Working with More FM, we will gain exposure to potential recruiters and job seekers who may not already be aware of the job seeking services we offer", says SEEK Business Development Executive, Patrick Pruett.

SEEK Communications aims to develop strategic alliances with leading local organisations to maximise its exposure to and contact with both advertisers and job seekers.

"Our goal is to provide the best independent online employment service in New Zealand, and we are committed to developing innovative and unique strategies, partnerships and promotions to make this happen".

The SeekMore web site is located at www.seekmore.co.nz About SEEK Communications

SEEK Communications publishes New Zealand's newest Internet jobs classified website, www.seek.co.nz. An Internet start-up that is totally independent of the recruitment industry, SEEK was launched in New Zealand in August 1999, using the experience gained from producing Australia's leading employment web site, www.seek.com.au. SEEK Communications is committed to providing excellent service and results for advertisers and creating a positive and valuable experience for job seekers.
