2009 End of Year Update
2009 has been one for the record books – and not the record books that most of us would like to be a part of! However, as the year draws to an end, we would like to take a moment to reflect on all of the positive things to come out of an otherwise tough year!
It’s Makeover Time
Our homepage, along with PJScout.com, received a complete redesign from January to March of this year. PJ Scout himself even got a makeover! Community, industry and state pages also saw big changes and we continue to make improvements as necessary. Look for additional changes in 2010!
Wichita Community Job Network Renews….again….
In May, the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce renewed the Wichita Community Job Network for the 15th consecutive year. The Wichita program was the first of many for NationJob. It has proven to be a leader, a guinea pig, and - most importantly – our flagship program, since its inception in 1994. View Press Release

NationJob Community Reinvestment Surpasses $1M (We are just too darn proud of this one to be funny!)
Just this month we announced that in 2009 NationJob Community Job Network Revenue Share Program surpassed the $1M mark in money reinvested in our partner Chambers and communities. We were very excited to reach this milestone, especially considering that the Revenue Share Program is less than 10 years old! View Press Release
Welcome to the family!
Despite a historically high national unemployment rate, NationJob’s Community Partner Network™ welcomed nine new Chamber Partners in 2009. They include Roanoke, VA, Greenville-Pitt, NC, Clarkesville, Oak Ridge, Cleveland and Cookeville, TN, Bessemer, AL and Round Rock, TX. We are excited that these Chambers and communities are now part of our Partner Network and look forward to working with them to grow their respective programs in the Community Job Network.
As you can see, NationJob had many things to be pleased about in 2009 and we look forward to an even better 2010!
