NEWS & EVENTS

Introducing our Newest Partners for Your Benefit

New Partner Brings Resources & Revenue Opportunities

Allison & Taylor and JobReferences.com have joined Career Thought Leaders as a Promotional Associate Organization! They offer a beneficial service to your job-seeking visitors, thus creating valuable content, as well as a revenue-generating stream for your site.

The concept is simple: Add a phrase, advertorial, or article with a hyperlink in various locations on your site about their valuable reference-checking service. The nature of this service is so unique and unknown to the job seeker, the information will add valuable content for your visitors. A revenue stream is created when you receive a commission on each order generated through your site.

Here is what the media has to say about us Allison & Taylor and their services.

About Allison & Taylor and JobReferences.com: Allison & Taylor and its principals have been in the business of checking references for corporations and individuals since 1984. They are highly acclaimed by employers, employees and the media alike. Compliments and mentions from influential publications and writers at The Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, The New York Times, Workplace Bullying Institute, ABC Newswire, Forbes, USA Today, Hcareers, Fortune and MyFox News provide insight into our services. Allison & Taylor is headquartered in Rochester, Michigan. Click here for more details on their services and procedures.

We co-hosted an E-Summit with Allison & Taylor on References, Recommendations, and Testimonials a few months ago. If you missed it, you can learn more about it and purchase the recording here.
