Advertise.com said it recently move dinto new office space, as part of that plan for growth, across technology, sales, and marketing departments. Advertise.com did not say exactly how many people it is looking to hire, but did say it--as well as the rest of the online advertising industry--has been seeing good growth in the last year. The company cited eMarketer forecasts of 20.2 percent growth on online ad spend this year in the U.S., with similar double digital growth through 2014.
