Today [Oct. 18] marks the launch of VarietyCareers.com, an online job site for the media and entertainment industry, powered by The Variety Group, a collection of the leading business publications in media — Variety, Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and Video Business.
VarietyCareers.com will serve as a resource for both job seekers and employers. Free of charge, job seekers will be able to post resumes and apply to jobs throughout the entertainment and media-industry worldwide.
Employers will be able to lower their cost and time-per-hire by having the ability to post jobs to a targeted audience and customize their recruitment needs.
VarietyCareers.com will enable human resource professionals to find qualified, industry-specific candidates in a way that no other recruitment vehicle currently provides. The aim is to help HR stay more competitive and responsive to the demands of business while also better managing costs.
Charlie Koones, executive vice president and publisher of the Variety Group, said: “VarietyCareers is a targeted offering that will provide entertainment companies with more qualified candidates than broad-based sites used today. For job seekers in media, it’s an extraordinary resource with over 3,500 jobs at launch combined with the editorial resources for research and context.”
Job listings on the site for today’s launch include: NBC Universal, 20th Century Fox, Time Warner Cable, ABC, Sinclair Broadcast Group, E! Entertainment Television, Warner Bros., Electronic Arts, Sony Pictures, Adelphia Communications Corp., Turner Broadcasting System Inc., Outdoor Life Network, Charter Communications Inc., Digital Domain and Discovery Communications Inc.
