.JOBS (Dot JOBS) Proposal Approved by ICANN Board

Next Steps: Expressions of Interest

CLEVELAND--()--Employ Media LLC, the licensed operator of the .JOBS Top Level Domain (TLD), is pleased to announce the ICANN Board of Directors yesterday approved its request for a Phased Allocation Program of domain names consisting of Industry, Occupation, Geographic, and Dictionary terms. The Board Resolution can be found at the ICANN web site www.icann.org.

Earlier this year the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Sponsoring Organization to .JOBS, completed an independent review of Employ Media’s proposed Phased Allocation Program, the same program submitted to and yesterday approved by the ICANN Board.

“We’re very pleased with the decision rendered by the ICANN Board,” states Tom Embrescia, Chairman of Employ Media. “Their decision validates the efforts of SHRM, its independent review, the support shown by the HR community, and the diligence of ICANN staff addressing the merits of this matter. I am very thankful for the effort put forth by all.”

Mr. Embrescia states that next steps will involve an Expressions of Interest (EOI) period with details soon to follow. “We realize there has been extraordinary interest in .JOBS from many facets of the HR community. We hope the EOI period will serve as an open invitation to the community to participate."

The .JOBS TLD was created in 2005 with global licensing rights awarded by ICANN to Employ Media, a privately held company headquartered in Cleveland, OH.
