Finding Your Match Online?
Interpersonal communications is not what it used to be. At least, that is, in terms of how people meet, greet, and stay in touch. Technology has opened up a world of advanced possibilities for finding, connecting and communicating – whether with friends, colleagues, fellow hobbyists, vendors, sales prospects, or others. While the variety of new channels can make interaction less personal, it certainly enables communication to be more precisely targeted than ever before.
The same holds true for job hunting. While online search has been around for some time, more avenues are being opened up for highly targeted matches between job seekers and employers. Professional associations are hosting job boards that link job seekers and positions within the functions or industries they serve. Many organizations also enable job seekers to register and apply directly on their websites. Other, independent job search services collect jobs in the arts, philanthropic organizations, public interest, and other special targets.
