Nebraska's newspapers launch statewide job search web site

Published 1/21/15

LINCOLN – Looking for a job in Nebraska?

That task just got easier, thanks to the launch of NEHires.com, a website owned and operated by Nebraska’s 172 daily and weekly newspapers.

Employment ads placed in Nebraska newspapers will also be uploaded to NEHires.com. This pairing of trusted, local print media with the global access of a job website provides a powerful tool for both job seekers and employers.

The North Bend Eagle has been participating in this project for the last three weeks, posting ads in the paper online. Any help wanted ad placed in the Eagle will be automatically placed online at NEHires.com for no additional cost.

“It’s true that there are a lot of employment sites out there,” said Rob James, sales manager at Nebraska Press Advertising Service, “but none of them can offer the exposure that 172 Nebraska newspapers can deliver.”

Local newspapers continue to be the leading source for community information in small towns and cities, according to the 2013 Community Newspaper Readership Study conducted by The Reynolds Journalism Institute. The survey shows that two-thirds (67 percent) of people interviewed read a community newspaper at least once a week. Nearly half reported they preferred their newspaper’s website as their favored source of information for local news, compared to the local television’s website or independent sites, such as MSN or Yahoo.

“When an advertiser places an ad with their community newspaper, not only will they capture the attention of local job seekers, they will also engage a motivated, online audience on NEHires.com,” James said.
