According to the company, this position was created to leverage Smith's significant experience in building and implementing marketing programs for niche Internet job boards.

Marc Sampson, founder and president of the company, stated, "We're making several strategic enhancements to the company that were driven by three things: our clients' needs, continuing development of our products and services, and an improving employment marketplace."
