  • Preparing for an IT Talent Squeeze
    IT employers, take note: The federal government’s tight time frame for computerization, along with a steep implementation curve, will require more IT workers for health care organizations-soon. Job projections range from at least 41,000 positions to more than 200,000.
  • Outplacement ‘Disruptor’ Gets $4.6 million investment
    RiseSmart, a self-described disruptor of the “the $3 billion-plus corporate outplacement market,” announced this morning that it got a $4.6 million infusion of venture capital.
    Originally based in Dallas and now in Silicon Valley, RiseSmart cleverly developed a technology approach to classic outplacement, focusing on providing job leads, resume editing, and networking suggestions. Its Job Search Concierge uses offshore researchers to scour online sources for job leads matching candidate interests. Instead of searching, candidates spend their time contacting companies and networking. RiseSmart, however, packages Job Search Concierge with phone consultation, resume writing, a bio/profile for posting to social and business networking sites, and some career coaching to provide a low cost outplacement service it calls Transition Concierge.
  • WebJobs 3.1 job board software and script released
    Web Scribble Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of job board software, is announcing the release of the latest version of its webJobs software.
