Why Choose MarketingHire?
Because MarketingHire Enables You to Access an Audience of Highly Skilled Marketing Professionals Not Easily, or As Cost Efficiently, Reached Elsewhere.
As part of the Marketing Career Network (MCN), an alliance of leading marketing associations and MarketingHire, every job submitted on MarketingHire is automatically posted on the job sections of leading marketing associations and chapters members of the MCN, providing you access to more than 500,000 high caliber marketing professionals. Unlike the big general job sites and other niche marketing job sites which primarily get their traffic from search engines and advertising, MarketingHire’s audience is comprised significantly of members of America’s leading marketing associations. We focus on delivering high quality marketing and marketing-related professionals primarily through our relationship with marketing associations, instead of primarily relying on random job seekers who find our site from ads and search engines. Association members tend to be better educated than the average professional, highly focused on their careers and are more likely to keep their skills up-to-date. The immediate benefit to you is that a higher caliber audience of marketing professionals see your job posts. Especially in the current talent market — where there’s a shortage of experienced marketing professionals and competition between employers can be fierce — that’s a very significant edge.

MarketingHire is a proud member of the Marketing Career Network (MCN), an alliance of America's leading marketing associations and MarketingHire.
MarketingHire was founded in 2004 by Fortune 500 marketing executive Peter DeLegge as the job board and career advice sister site to MarketingToday, one of the first online publications on marketing. MarketingToday has been recommended by Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Wharton, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, Inc Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine and many others.
Peter DeLegge, MarketingHire Founder & Principal
MarketingHIre founder & principal Peter DeLegge has an extensive background in marketing including senior roles at Motorola, Aon and ADT and consulting to major brands as well as startups. DeLegge has been recognized by marketing associations and publications for creating best in class marketing programs and campaigns and was chosen a "marketing thought leader" by the DMA. He has keynoted and presented at numerous marketing events, universities and interviewed and/or quoted in Forbes, Crain's AdAge (BtoB), Direct, DM News, Target, MarketingSherpa, Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, Folio, Chicago Tribune, Wired and others.
Peter founded MarketingHire in 2004, after a discussion with his wife, an HR professional, about experiencing posting marketing jobs on the big general job boards consistently resulting in being deluged with literally hundreds of resumes from poorly qualified candidates and using a niche association job board that yielded significantly higher-quality candidates. The conversation led to DeLegge speaking to his marketing colleagues and their experiences and eventually led to him contacting the company behind the job boards used by the nation’s top marketing associations, Boxwood / Norwood Technology. After a series of discussions, Peter found himself presenting to the decision-makers of the Marketing Career Network about accepting a non-association in the MCN. The marketing association MCN members unanimously agreed and MarketingHire was soon launched.
Since then, MarketingHire has been chosen as one of the best job board sites for marketing and advertising professionals by Money Magazine, MarketingSherpa, HubSpot, Trendlist and others with customers that have included some of the most well-known tech, B2B, CPG, agency, college and consulting brands as well as many small businesses, colleges, associations and non-profits.
Questions And Answers
More than three quarters of the candidates in our database have a four year degree or better. Nearly 30% have MBAs, Masters or Doctorates degrees. (Full statistics are available to our clients and qualified prospects.) We believe strongly in our partnership with America’s most respected marketing associations because their members are typically more focused on keeping their professionals skills up to date. Due to our affiliation with the Marketing Career Network (MCN), MarketingHire.com is effective at reaching all levels of marketing professionals, from senior professionals to recent college graduates (a number of our MCN marketing association partners have college and alumni chapters). MarketingHire’s own database largely grew out of the MarketingToday readership and email subscribers. MarketingToday’s email subscribers included marketing and PR professionals that included managers that represented 70% of the companies listed in the Fortune 500 at the time. A good number of Director and VP level titles were email subscribers (while MarketingToday ceased publishing, we’re re-launching in 2020 and we have a new site called AdFails, that focuses on brand failures, coming as well).
Ask other marketing job websites staff specifically where their registered candidates come from. Sites such as MarketingJobs primarily build their candidate databases from random Internet job seekers who find their sites from Internet searches and job search engines. This is almost certain to result in job seekers with qualifications similar to that of big general job sites, only in significantly smaller quantities. MarketingHire.com largely built its candidate database due to our sister publication, MarketingToday (www.marketingtoday.com), which like MarketingHire was founded by our CEO, Peter DeLegge, whose background includes senior roles at Motorola, Aon and ADT and accolades for his publication, Marketing Today, from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Northwestern, Inc Magazine, Entrepreneur and others and reaches members of America’s leading marketing associations.
Also, beware of niche job board sites that lack good content — a key factor in keeping candidates coming back and no Twitter presence or no jobs posted on Twitter (where we’ve found candidates and publishers tend to be more active about hunting, likely due to the level of anonymity permitted, as compared to Facebook). We tweet all of the jobs posted at MarketingHire at no cost to our Twitter followers, which include marketers with thousands of followers, publishers and marketing association followers. Niche job sites that primarily build their candidate databases through search engines tend to have low quality candidate databases.
Some important questions we strongly recommend you ask or at least consider before posting jobs at a job board:
“How did your company build its candidate database? Is it mainly anonymous job seekers who found the site from search engines or did you build it through well-respected marketing organizations and associations?”
“How many of the candidates in your jobs database are degreed and located in the US?”
“What steps does your company take to ensure the job candidates in your database are high caliber, presently employed and experienced as opposed to randomly found on the Internet?”
The short answer is our focus on marketing candidates and the quality of candidates in our database differentiates MarketingHire from other niche job sites and the big general sites — we specialize in one thing, marketing and marketing-related professionals and are part of a network with America’s most respected marketing associations that enables you to reach their members when you post a job at MarketingHire.
A Booz Allen Hamilton study found that while the big general internet job boards received 27% of companies recruiting advertising budget, these boards only generated 15% of new hires. While posting jobs at the big general job boards (e.g., Monster, HotJobs, CareerBuilder, LinkedIn, etc.) often yields high quantities of resumes, the qualifications of those candidates tends to be all over the map. Our experience is that the candidate quality of most of the submissions is, most often, poor (the phrase, needle in a haystack comes to mind when sifting through large quantities of largely poorly qualified applicants). That means the HR department and the hiring department is forced to sift through a great deal of resumes of very unqualified candidates. This is made worse by a common practice of the big, general job boards to compensate other websites for feeding them candidates to apply for jobs — regardless of quality. One major job site pays a bounty of $1 per applicant to other websites, regardless of a candidate’s qualifications. MarketingHire.com doesn’t engage in such practices. Instead, we focus on candidate quality.
The combination of MarketingHire’s candidate database in concert with the hundreds of thousands of members of the leading marketing association MCN partners you reach when you post jobs at MarketingHire sets MarketingHire apart from other job boards. MarketingHire and the MCN’s databases create a unique differentiator that you won’t get elsewhere. While you won’t get the high quantity of applicants you’ll receive from posting a job at one of the big job boards, you’ll be reaching very high quality of candidates. Due to the power of the Marketing Career Network (MCN), MarketingHire enables you to reach more than 500,000 marketing professionals.
Boxwood / Naylor is MarketingHire and the MCN’s partner. They provide the actual job board, transaction technology and customer support. Consequently, when you place your job on MarketingHire’s or any MCN partner’s job board, that’s actually using Naylor’s technology and support. Your order will be placed directly with Naylor as opposed to MarketingHire. Consider them the glue that holds the MCN together. Technically, MarketingHire has non-job content. The jobs, e-commerce and customer support are all handled by Naylor. We’ve worked with them from the very beginning and find them to be a great partner.
