Colorado-based FlexJobs has acquired recruitment resource site Job-Hunt.org.

Founded in 2007, FlexJobs positions itself as a premium online job service for professionals seeking remote and flexible work.

Job-Hunt, meanwhile, is an advice site with over 1,000 articles as well as free guides by experts in careers and recruitment, to ease the job-seeking process for users.

FlexJobs said the merger would give candidates access to expert advice, job search tips, and free resources.

“I have been a long-time fan of Job-Hunt’s dedication to high-quality content around the many varied and sometimes quite challenging aspects of job searching,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs.

“Bringing Job-Hunt under the FlexJobs umbrella is a natural extension of FlexJobs’ mission to help job seekers be successful in their job search and career, and we are excited to connect even more people to the incredible wealth of resources that Job-Hunt.org offers.”

FlexJobs calls itself “the no.1 job site to find the best remote, work from home, and flexible jobs for over 14 years”, and aims to offer users a faster, easier, and safer job search. Members can choose between free and premium plans.

Job-Hunt.org has had more than 50 million users over the past 15 years, according to company data.

Originally established in 1993 by Stanford graduate student Dane Spearing, as a list of online job search resources, it describes its mission as “to provide our visitors with the best information about topics important for a short and successful job search”.

From 1998-2021, it was owned and edited by Susan P. Joyce.
