ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- OrlandoJobs.com, the region's premier online job board, and Orlando Weekly newspaper today announce a new partnership designed to bring more job opportunities directly to job seekers through multi-platform promotions across both heavily trafficked entities.

The Central Florida region's jobseekers will now be able to find openings and apply via interconnected listings: in the print edition of Orlando Weekly, online at OrlandoWeekly.com, online at OrlandoJobs.com, and through special events the two companies will jointly host.

"This partnership is exciting because it brings more opportunities for anyone who is looking for a job to find one that is right for them in a more streamlined, targeted way," states Roger Lear, President of OrlandoJobs.com.

"Our research on the Orlando DMA job market uncovers thousands of good, open jobs each year, so the more ways we can put those openings in front of potential candidates, the faster our local economy can get back on track. Orlando Weekly exposes our job listings to a whole new pool of potential candidates," states OrlandoJobs.om co-founder, Scott Kotroba.

Jobseekers will find job listings from OrlandoJobs.com in the back two pages of Orlando Weekly starting this week. Each will be cross-listed on the OrlandoJobs.com website with the same job identification number. Interested candidates simply input that job identification number to apply.

Orlando Weekly also considers this new endeavor a win-win-win scenario: for the job seeker, the employer, as well as the region.

"Our audience is searching for quality job openings, so powering this kind of a partnership through our pages, our site and new, jointly-held events allows us to increase the level of service to the community," states Michael Wagner, publisher of Orlando Weekly.
