March 7, 2012 - Pasadena, CA - Some good news came from the economy last week as it was reported by the Labor Department that unemployment dropped to the lowest it's been in four years. And while this is positive for people looking for work as a whole, it's still advantageous to have leads or "ins" to find open positions. EmploymentCrossing.com offers precisely this kind of lead for those seeking a way to leap ahead of the job market.

The new job numbers indicate that 2,000 fewer people applied for unemployment aid last month than the previous month. Plus, January saw the largest increase in jobs in the past nine months. These are all hopeful signs for things to come. Still, the job market isn't easy, and unemployed (or underemployed) workers have to be competitive to find an open position. That's where EmploymentCrossing.com comes into play.

The site allows job seekers to gain access to a variety of open positions from companies all over the country in every industry imaginable. Job seekers have to pay a fee to get access to the position listings. Even so, this fee helps weed out bad applicants, helping employers find people that are perfectly suited for their positions. That means applicant's resumes are considered more seriously when they come through EmploymentCrossing.com, which is just the sort of advantage people need in this unstable economy.

EmploymentCrossing.com is based in Pasadena, CA. Founded by Harrison Barnes, the site launched in September 2008 as a hub for a variety of other industry-specific job sites and includes the job listings from all the sites beneath it.
