We’re expanding, and today we say “bye bye” to helping only those over $100,000 and “hello” to helping all career-minded professionals. TheLadders now takes all salary levels and shows the right jobs to the right person. So while we’re saying goodbye to our narrower segmentation, we are not saying “goodbye” to keeping your job search on TheLadders relevant, focused, and targeted.
So, for example, you won’t see jobs that pay half (or double) what you’re currently making. You won’t see jobs outside of your field — we still won’t show sales jobs to finance professionals, or marketing jobs to technologists. And we won’t be letting in scammy jobs, work-from-home schemes, or commission-only opportunities — we’ll still be vetting every job and every recruiter before we allow them into our community.
So what’s the big change for you? Should be not too much… on the surface.
You’ll still be seeing great $100K+ jobs, and the recruiters who post them.
Behind the scenes, though, by making it easier for companies and recruiters to fill all of their professional jobs at TheLadders, you’ll find that we’re getting more, and an even wider variety of, jobs at the right level for you.
We’ve been out talking to our friends in HR departments and recruiting shops across the country these past few months talking about our expansion and we’ve found widespread enthusiasm and support. The standard ways of doing things are too expensive, too time-consuming, and too frustrating for them, too.
This expansion has been a long time in the making. From the beginning in 2003, when we set out to become the “Society of the Nation’s Top Talent” to our first appearance in the New York Times in 2007, we’ve talked about preparing for the day when we would expand to cover all professional jobs.
We’ve worked hard at becoming experts at modern recruiting. We’ve underwritten research at universities. We’ve spent over a million dollars re-writing the playbook for job search advice. We published our Amazon Top 100 best-seller: “You’re Better Than Your Job Search“. And we’ve studied the history of the job search through the past two centuries.
We also launched Signature, our historically unprecedented program that guarantees you a job offer — or your money back — when you follow our program of weekly or bi-weekly calls over six months.
And based on our expertise in understanding what employers want, we’ve built the largest resume writing service in the country.
It’s that excellence in helping job-seekers like you that has propelled us to become leaders in the business, and it’s one of the reasons why we’ve tripled the number of recruiters and HR professionals in our community this year alone.
And so now that we’ve grown to almost five million members in the United States and 43% of high-end professionals used TheLadders in their job search last year, we’re expanding to serve all career-minded professionals and all professional jobs in the country.
I thank you for your support these last eight years and look forward to eight, or eighteen, or eighty more years helping you succeed in the job hunt!
