Another Example Of How To Do It
(January 29, 1998) Ice storms must cause productivity. Here's another Canadian Gem.
EmergIT is yet another member of the "build a network by delivering upfront value" set. Their new magazine (on and off the web) is routinely placed in the hands of their customers. With a few design tweaks, the site will become a very potent recruiting tool.
While search techniques and candidate poaching are today's rage, staying in business over the next five years requires building a candidate pool. Emergit shows you how it's done.
The current issue contains:
(January 27, 1998) The first thing you notice is the catch-phrase: "The Best Jobs Out There Are In Here". The Northern Lights swirl against a black background. Clicking the "enter" button takes you to another tastefully designed page that lays out the basic features with a bare minimum of graphic overload. The site itself includes a broad array of resources for employers and candidates including free databases, industry information and a proposed "Who's about to graduate?" service.
Is this a new commercial service? A university based initiative? No, it's the work of
CATA (The Canadian Advanced Technology Association). The actual site, Technoskill is a demonstration of what's possible.
As the economy continues to shift, there are fascinating opportunities for trade associations to rearrange their traditional roles. The fact that Technoskill actually sets design standards makes the entire segment worth watching.
It easily exceeds the the quality of services from our own industry groups.
WSJ Keeps It Coming
(January 26, 1998) We love the evolving design at the Wall Street Journal's Career Site. The latest iteration brings the full muscle of the newspaper to the web. The venture is headed by Tony Lee (formerly the editor of National Business Employment Weekly). We can't imagine a deeper demonstration of commitment.
Already hosting the most content rich job postings (thanks to Junglee), the site's editorial content is what's been expanded. Features now include:
Content this rich will bring passive and active job hunters to the site. It's really an amazing move!
- Career Columnists - Features several widely followed columns from the Wall Street Journal in print, including Hal Lancaster's "Managing Your Career," Sue Shellenbarger's "Work & Family" and Thomas Petzinger Jr.'s "Front Lines". This section also includes a Q&A column with Mr. Lee.
