Who are Brad and Fraser Traverse?
Brad started compiling job leads more than 20 years ago as a way to connect his job-hunting friends with employee-seeking colleagues in Washington, D.C., and to share leads on often unpublished positions. Originally sent as a weekly email, the number of subscribers and leads grew and grew until it became impossible to manage by email. In 2006, he created this website so his members could have access to new leads on a daily basis and so they could more easily search for jobs using the category and keyword functions. Today, Brad has more than 5,000 leads posted on his site, with none more than three months old. He runs the business with his wife, Fraser Traverse, who handles the customer service, technology and book-keeping side of things.
