Beyond: The Career Network’s headquarters is in King of Prussia, PA. It is the central point of a vast network of niche career sites and other recruitment sources. The company’s focus is on recruitment through connection and community and offers features to this end.
Job seekers can search and apply for jobs for free, but a membership upgraded to premium is $24.99/month and provides the following additional services:
Talent Pro: $199/month
Recruiter: $299/month (5 job slots)
Recruiter Premium: $499/month (10 job slots)
Enterprise solutions are custom plans for companies with larger recruitment and brand-building goals and include high-volume sourcing with all of the above listed features.
The company is somewhat vague about who exactly is included in their reach, but it is a big one. They claim over 54 million active members throughout their career network, which includes Beyond.com account holders as well as account holders within 1,400 other recruitment sources. 38 million of those members are job seekers.
Beyond's learning materials are encompassed in three separate blogs: The Confident Career (for job seekers), Employment Matrix (for recruiters) and News and Advice (miscellaneous links). Anyone can like, share, or email articles, but only Beyond account members can "like" and comment.
The Confident Career blog has archives beginning with October 2013 and contains articles about the following employment education topics:
The Employment Matrix dates back to June 2008 and its top categories include:
Beyond.com, Inc. was branded in 2005, but its roots began with PhillyJobs.com in 1998. PhillyJobs was launched as a free job board serving the Philadelphia area and eventually evolved into the 4B Business Network, then the 4Jobs Career Network. Its parent company, Artemis HR, eventually rebranded 4Jobs and acquisition MegaJobSites.com to Beyond: The Career Network.
Beyond's customer support is adequate. Customer service representatives are available over the phone Monday-Friday from 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM EST (866-694-JOBS). Users can also submit questions through the help form on the "contact us" section of the website.
The news and advice blog had us (the Review Team) a bit perplexed. Many of the "news" articles are simply trending links to recipes, humor, and other seemingly out-of-place blurbs. Only a smattering of the articles relate to employment and business, and this is the blog with a direct link from the company's homepage. The company is no doubt receiving revenue for the ads and links, so they serve a purpose, but they distract from the goal of most visitors: to make employment progress and connections.
