London, December 2, 2004: Games Press (http://www.gamespress.com), the leading online information resource for games industry journalists, and GamesIndustry.biz (http://www.gamesindustry.biz), the world's leading video games trade publication, today announced the launch of the Games Press online jobs service.
Powered by GamesIndustry.biz's already internationally renowned employment section - which advertises more than 100 new job vacancies every week - the Games Press jobs section will allows users access to the hottest opportunities in the world of European video games.
The launch of the Games Press employment service arrives after the September 2004 announcement of a longstanding content and business agreement between Games Press and GamesIndustry.biz. Games Press users are now able to browse a wide range of vacancies and apply for jobs directly from the Games Press site.
"The launch of Games Press's employment section marks a significant advancement of the overall service offered by the union between Games Press and GamesIndustry.biz," said Patrick Garratt, GamesIndustry.biz's Business Development Manager. "Now advertisers and users can enjoy placements of ads on both sites, and Games Press further cements itself as an absolute essential destination for games journalists."
"This is the best deal for every one of our visitors," said Steve Owen, Technical Director of Games Press. "Thousands of journalists and other games industry professionals around the world now have access to a huge database of jobs. While it's our intention to continue to concentrate on editorial positions, thanks to GamesIndustry.biz we now include jobs throughout the industry for any professional who fancies a change of scenery."
