Press Release Summary: To meet the demands of thousands of media professionals,
EmploymentCrossing has launched MediaJobCrossing, a niche job site catering
exclusively to media professionals. MediaJobCrossing offers media job seekers
instant access to thousands of new media job openings covering all aspects of the
media industry, including television jobs, radio jobs, newspaper jobs, and online
marketing jobs.

Press Release Body: A. Harrison Barnes, founder and CEO of MediaJobCrossing, says,
''Various newspaper companies across the country have cut staff in recent times,
while others have reported imminent layoffs, a sign that the current economic
turmoil has affected the media industry as well. MediaJobCrossing has been launched
with the needs of media job seekers affected by this downturn in mind.''

According to AdAge.com, the US media employment rate has fallen to a 15-year low
owing mainly to the slumping newspaper industry. Newspapers have cut one in four
jobs since the industry peaked in 1990. At that time, newspapers accounted for 50%
of all US media jobs; as of last year, however, that number had come down to 38%.
Other media sectors such as television and radio have also cut jobs. ''Various
newspapers and other media segments have cut jobs, and MediaJobCrossing aims to
provide all media job seekers with every possible job opening from even the most
hidden sources,'' adds Barnes.

''Our 90-plus niche job sites have been a tremendous success. Since the launch of
EmploymentCrossing, we have received a lot of requests from job seekers asking us to
launch a niche job site for media professionals. We are confident that
MediaJobCrossing will fulfill the career needs of thousands of media job seekers in
these tough times,'' adds Barnes.

MediaJobCrossing seeks to list every media job opening in the United States by
monitoring the jobs posted on every job board, career website, and employer career
page its researchers can locate. The types of jobs in the media industry are many,
ranging from news producer, editor, and media planner to web designer, online
editor, and classified manager.

According to Barnes, the most popular searches on the site thus far have been:

* Media jobs
* Media agency jobs
* London media jobs
* Media sales jobs
* Media manager jobs
* Media planner jobs
* Media recruitment
* Media careers
* Media consultant jobs

''There is an astonishing number of media job openings out there. We want to find
them all,'' Barnes says.

MediaJobCrossing charges $29.95 a month to view its job-opening research. The job
board also offers a free, seven-day trial to allow media job seekers to familiarize
themselves with the service. Employers and recruiters are able to post their jobs
for free on MediaJobCrossing to reach potential candidates.
