News: LandaJob Press Release

LandaJob Marketing & Creative Talent has launched a new website ( and new corporate branding, including a new logo. The Kansas City staffing firm searches for, finds and connects only top-of-the-line talent to bottom line business needs in marketing, advertising, graphic design, communications and public relations.

Landa Williams, Founder/CEO, stated, “The executive search/recruitment industry continues to evolve, while employers still need permanent direct hire talent, many companies and agencies increasingly need the services of talented contract employees, especially those with unique skills. We wanted our website to reflect the balance between our contract and direct hire services.”

“In recent years, small firms in particular have been turning to contract professionals to fill in the gaps that their full-time staff can’t cover,” added Ralph Gilbert, co-owner of LandaJob. “There has been a lot of speculation as to the reason behind the rise toward contract hiring — the economic recession, cheaper labor, concerns about the Affordable Care Act and offering health benefits to full-timers. While all of these may factor into the reasons smaller firms are hiring contract workers, the bottom-line is they want to make sure there is an ongoing need before bringing in full-time employees.”

In addition to contract, contract-to-hire and direct hire services, LandaJob also offers career development and career coaching services. The website allows both employers and job seekers to search for talent and positions respectively; includes career development support for job seekers; and provides free access to one of the best job search portals, where users can find loads of tips and tools, educational webinars, and even automate and organize searches for job postings.

The website also features a blog written by both Williams and Gilbert, and recruiter and career coach, Kathryn Lorenzen. Along with the website, LandaJob has also updated its Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. In addition to posting positions and content for job candidates, LandaJob plans on sharing more content of interest to companies and advertising agencies, especially for contract staffing. Rebecca Schwartz, creative and temporary recruiter, will also offer updates and current trends in temporary/contract hiring.

“Social media certainly has revolutionized the recruiting business,” said Williams. “And we’ve been using social media effectively for getting the word out on job openings and to source and pre-screen candidates. But we now plan to use these tools on a more strategic level for their respective strengths and based on the composite of our followers.”
