Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend, although I am sure some of you still found yourselves checking your email more often than you would like to admit. This is because TheLadders has some of the hardest-working recruiters in the country. In fact, since announcing last fall that we are a free resource to employers, TheLadders has proudly grown to more than 38,000 – the highest number in our company’s history.

Every quarter, we commemorate our Top 200 Recruiters and Top 50 Employers across the country. While we continue to provide an unparalleled job-matching service nationally, recruiting remains, predominantly, a local activity. Therefore, it is important for us to recognize and celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Last March, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE – which kicked off with an esteemed list of 100 ELITE corporate and agency employers for New York City. Today, we are ready to announce the 60 ELITE employers for the San Francisco Bay Area!

As a reminder, every year TheLadders ELITE will celebrate a short list of exceptional employers in our most popular recruiting markets, representing the top 1% in each market. Each ELITE employer is hand-selected, based upon their TTM performance (Trailing Twelve Months, immediately prior to the list’s announcement), while demonstrating outstanding citizenship within TheLadders’ community.

Below are the criteria used for the selection:

  1. Overall engagement in our ecosystem, including
    • Quality and quantity of messages sent to candidates, and jobs manually posted by employers
    • Ratings and feedback provided to applicants
    • Profiles and resumes downloaded and shared with hiring managers
  2. Number of interviews and hires
  3. Social responsibility score, demonstrating outstanding citizenship and respect towards our candidates

TheLadders ELITE will enjoy the following benefits:

  1. Development input and early access to products in beta
  2. Discounted price, early registration, and preferred seating to our conference in New York City (September 24th & 25th)
  3. Thought-leadership opportunities, such as guest blogging and event panels
  4. Exposure in TheLadders social media (TheLadders blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), as well as coverage in Marc Cenedella’s newsletter, which reaches nearly 6 million members
  5. Networking opportunities with other ELITE members
  6. Complimentary ELITE merchandise
Throughout 2013, we will announce and celebrate TheLadders ELITE program at our JobMobile event in five key markets:
  1. New York City: March 28, 2013
  2. San Francisco: June 20, 2013
  3. Chicago: July 18, 2013
  4. Atlanta: October 29, 2013

Why do I mention five key markets, but only list four? Because the fifth city is up to you! Next month, we will be unveiling a polling button where you can vote on JobMobile’s last stop for 2013. Will it be Boston? Perhaps Philadelphia? Decidedly Dallas? Stay tuned! ELITE status will be granted annually and enjoyed for 12 consecutive months until the new list of ELITE recruiters is published for that market.
