Onward Search Launches Online Career Center Offering Targeted Job Search Advice

New online career center provides targeted job search advice and career guidance specifically for interactive designers, Internet marketers and mobile application developers.

WILTON, CT, April 19, 2011 – Onward Search, the leading provider of interactive, Internet marketing, and mobile development talent in the nation, launched the industry’s first Career Center built specifically for digital marketing professionals. The Onward Search Career Center, which can be found at www.onwardsearch.com/careers/, offers comprehensive and customized job search advice and career guidance to professionals ranging from SEOs and web designers to mobile application developers and social media practitioners.

According to Forrester Research’s US Interactive Marketing Forecast, US based interactive marketing spend will approach $55 billion by 2014, making creative, search and mobile professionals some of the most sought after talent in the country. As such, Onward Search created a resource to help these professionals successfully navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of their flourishing careers.

The new Career Center was shaped around the requests and sentiments of Onward Search’s nationwide base of talent, clients, and recruiters. Traditional career topics like interviewing, resumes and salary negotiation are explored with an updated and industry specific perspective, plus, visitors will find job focused podcasts, hiring and salary trends, and information about nationwide networking groups for these professions as well.

“Job seekers in these fields want job search and career advice that speaks to the unique challenges and opportunities they encounter,” said Ken Clark, Chief Operating Officer of Onward Search. “Presenting a user experience portfolio is very different from submitting a traditional resume, so we created this Career Center to address and support that.”

Industry specific articles on the Career Center include, “How SEOs Prepare For an Interview,” and “Career Changing Interactive Design Trends,” while the Job Search Essentials section provides more universal guidance like, “4 Steps to Building a Stronger Personal Brand.”

Onward Search will add new content to the Career Center regularly, updates for which can be found on the Onward Search Blog, Twitter feed and Facebook page. Professionals and job seekers in these industries and beyond are invited to explore the Career Center, share the guidance with others, and contribute their own ideas to the growing collection of content.
