users logoJob seekers have spoken, and this year www.HERCjobs.org received a 2015 User’s Choice award for best job board by the WEDDLE’s annual User’s Choice Awards.

HERCjobs.org is a unique job board in that it represents a consortium of over 600 colleges and universities who are dedicated to improving diversity in higher education employment. The award-winning site is also a gateway for professionals from fields including marketing and information technology who want to kick-start a career in higher education.

There are over 200,000 employment sites currently in operation on the Internet, and these sites have been recognized as the elite of their field by the job seekers, employers and recruiters who use them.

Now celebrating their eleventh year, WEDDLE’s annual User’s Choice Awards are the only accolades in which actual users are able to vote for the employment sites they think work best.  While the poll is not a scientific survey, it does indicate the intensity of support users have for their favorite sites.

“We believe customers count most,” says WEDDLE’s CEO, Peter Weddle.  “While pundits will always have their favorites, it’s the people who use the sites who really know which are the most helpful.”

The winners were selected in open balloting conducted throughout 2014 at the WEDDLE’s Web-site (www.weddles.com).  Thousands of unique ballots were cast and the top thirty vote-getters were selected as the 2015 User’s Choice Award winners.  For a complete list of the winners, please visithttp://www.weddles.com/awards.
