Recruitology, a recruitment platform used by over 200 publishers and media companies to help 50,000+ employers more efficiently recruit talent, has acquired Cross-Post. Founded in 2004 by two former job board and executive search professionals, Cross-Post connects some of the U.S.’ largest media publishers and their advertisers with the right talent through niche sites in healthcare, diversity, transportation, veterans, energy, and others.
Recruitology enables publishers to provide local employers with a recruitment platform that includes applicant tracking, analytics, intelligent job ad targeting and now, access to one of the largest job-seeking audiences accessible through 1,500+ specialty job boards and destination sites. “We’ve been working closely with Cross-Post for a number of years,” said Roberto Angulo, CEO of Recruitology. “It makes sense to combine both companies to offer our publisher and media partners with a one-stop shop for candidate targeting and talent acquisition.”
“We know the Recruitology team and we’ve been using their technology more to power our networks,” said John Fujii, Principal and co-founder of Cross-Post. “We’re impressed with the product roadmap that Recruitology has laid out and we’ve been working with their team to ensure that our partners have the best offering in the market.” Cross-Post CEO and co-founder Carl Braun concurs: “Combining our two companies has been a long time coming. We are very pleased with this acquisition and look forward to watching as Recruitology continues to be a dominant player in the Talent Acquisition space.”
Through the acquisition, Cross-Post’s publisher and media partners will join Recruitology’s partner network. Recruitology’s publisher and media partner network grew as employers, through their local newspaper, wanted an easier way to target jobs to college students and recent grads on AfterCollege.com. AfterCollege has long led the market for entry-level hiring, growing to over 5,000,000 annual visitors since 1999. Today it represents students at over 18,000 academic departments and groups from 2,300 universities, with more than 400,000 jobs and internships from 25,000 employers.
Through the partnership with Cross-Post, Recruitology has evolved into a recruitment platform. It encompasses recruitment technology and job distribution capabilities that extend beyond the entry-level segment to also include vocational, hourly and verticals such as healthcare, engineering and niche audiences such as veterans and diversity groups.
