Launched in January 2023 in partnership with the success-focused media platform Forbes, Forbes.jobs is the exclusive next-generation career platform that connects the entire talent community — candidates, recruiters and companies. With the mission to redefine the career journey, Forbes.jobs enables talent to connect with industry-leading recruiters on exclusive career opportunities, find coaches to bring their skills to the next level and access skill assessment tools, leveling the playing field for talent everywhere by taking the “it’s all about who you know” out of the equation.
With more than 20 years’ experience in corporate recruiting, I had a vision to create a “marketplace” for recruiters and companies across industries to easily engage with talent in a confidential and engaging space, while also providing a credible space for talent to elevate their career. As the CEO of Forbes.jobs, that vision is becoming a reality.
Unlike traditional job boards, Forbes.jobs acknowledges that career development is not just about finding a new job, it’s a journey that encompasses a spectrum of professional growth. The website not only instantly connects candidates with vetted recruiters throughout the U.S. for employment opportunities, but offers a range of career services for talent at every stage of their career journey. Career services offered include one-on-one career coaching, skill assessments and customized career content.
“Forbes is recognized as the leading source for career, workplace and leadership content,” says Peter Hung, president of licensing and branded ventures at Forbes. “At our core, we champion success by celebrating those who have made it and those who aspire to make it, and, together with Forbes.jobs, we extend beyond the Forbes content and now offer services to those individuals who aspire to take the next big step in their career journey.”
Forbes.jobs is changing the career journey. By connecting our network of elite recruiters with candidates and supporting companies with their strategic talent needs, we are disrupting the industry. It is about helping the entire career ecosystem find high-quality value through the best people and tools.
Jennifer Bookspan is CEO of Forbes.jobs.
