According to Media Bulletin “Resourcing will become part of Recruiter as of September and will not be a separate publication”
This is another Centaur title to add to their recent closures and in some ways is a classic example – an ad-funded, controlled circulation title in a market that has tanked big time. They couldn’t even be bothered to do any sort of website. Lazy publishing, hoping to milk recruitment advertising with glossy, empty product.
Dozens of magazines and newspapers that are household names are under “lethal threat” and could disappear by the end of the year as advertising revenue continues to fall away during the summer.
Group M predicts that the consumer magazine ad market will be down 20% year on year for 2009, a revision down from 16% in March and 9% in December.
