CommodityCareers.com, LLC Launches Global Commodities Career Portal

CommodityCareers.com, LLC Launches Global Commodities Career Portal

Energy Executive Search Specialist, Audrey Cullen Davis, launches online portal focused on the international commodity career sector to make immediate impact in environmental, energy, metals, and agricultural job markets

September, 2008, Stamford, CT – CommodityCareers.com, LLC, announces the official launch of its niche online job portal focused on serving energy, metals, agricultural, and other commodity markets. The website is a global resource designed for serving recruiter, professional, and corporate communities.

The foundation of the site was developed by Audrey Cullen Davis, Co-Founder and President of First Call Associates, a highly regarded boutique search firm focused on energy trading, marketing, and risk management. Prior to co-founding First Call Associates, Davis was a trader and marketer of energy commodities. She holds a BA in Economics from the University of Connecticut.

Davis commented on why she created CommodityCareers.com, “With the influx of capital to the commodities market, I have seen a sharp increase in the demand for talent. Since there are only a handful of specialists to manage this heightened client demand and limited dedicated online resources to help us with our research combined with the general popularity of job boards, it seemed logical to create a resource like CommodityCareers.com. ”

Out of the 40,000 plus members of the Industry Association of Employment Websites, IAEW, less than 1% is dedicated to the commodities and environmental markets, and none are specific to trading. To better serve its target market, the navigation on CommodityCareers.com is similar to a trading and marketing desk, directing users to front, middle, and back office job postings. The Site’s talent pool includes a database of well-vetted professionals; qualified candidates range from marketing and trading in the front office to risk management in the middle office and contract negotiations in the back office.

Davis has chosen Thomas B. Newman as the Company’s President and COO to lead the management, operations, and development of Commodity Careers. In this role, he will leverage his 25 years of professional experience in international business to implement the Company’s strategic global expansion plan. Newman holds a Masters degree from The American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird) and a BS in International Economics from Arizona State University.

Newman commented, “Our goal since day one has been to build a leading industry technical solution, including a proprietary search engine, while ensuring our users also find the Site useful, interesting, and aesthetically pleasing. Our development team has received positive feedback from early adapters. The Site’s search engine has the ability to drill down to specific functional expertise required in a trading environment. This innovative approach makes the recruitment process more efficient and ensures a greater return on our customers’ human resource investments. ”

Davis has also chosen Puja Lakhlani as Director of Technology Planning and Development. In addition to overseeing the Site’s development since 2007, she will also be responsible for international marketing and the company’s customized cultural content. She holds an MBA from the University of Miami and a BS degree in Computer Science from Florida Atlantic University.

CommodityCareers.com’s customized resources include relevant job opportunities, a well-vetted candidate database, insightful articles and industry information, campus recruitment, social networking integration, and search engine optimization that targets the appropriate audience within wholesale and retail commodities marketing and trading.

Actonomy - Largest HR knowledge base for recruiters by recruiters

Press release

(ENGLISH -Nederlands verder in deze mail)

Ghent, Belgium - August 19th, 2008 - Actonomy, with HQ in Belgium and customers world wide, launches the largest HR knowledge base for recruiters by recruiters, to help decrease the gap in the labour market supply and demand.

“It is an important enhancement to traditional search techniques.” says Filip de Geijter, CEO Actonomy “Often recruiters conclude they don’t find any suitable candidate, while they’re looking at a database with several 10.000’s or even 100.000’s of CV’s.” It also supports recruiters using new channels such as social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, Netlog, and others.


Gent, Belgie - 19 Augustus 2008 - Actonomy, gevestigd in Gent en wereldwijd actief in next generation searching & matching software voor de HR sector kondigt de lancering aan van de HR kennisdatabank voor recruiters door recruiters, een belangrijke bijdrage tot het verkleinen van het onevenwicht in de arbeidsmarkt.

“Dit betekent een belangrijke meerwaarde voor de huidige zoek- en matchingsystemen, waarbij recruiters soms concluderen dat ze geen kandidaten met geschikte eigenschappen vinden, terwijl ze over een databank beschikken met meerdere 10.000'en of 100.000'en kandidaten” aldus Filip De Geijter, CEO van Actonomy. Tevens helpt dit recruiters bij het zoeken via de nieuwe kanalen die zij gebruiken zoals social network sites LinkedIn, Facebook, Netlog, en dies meer.
