  • News & Commentary - Message forums [US] Job hunting online gets trickier
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Thursday, February 09, 2006


    An article by Anne Fisher, FORTUNE senior writer:

    ``Friends, be warned: If you're hoping to find a new job through a job board or other online channel – or if you're an employer seeking candidates on the Web – the world just got a little bit more difficult.

    ``New federal guidelines meant to standardize how employers track data on the diversity of their job-applicant pool are taking effect starting today for jobs at federal contractors – and similar rules will kick in later this year at U.S. companies with more than 50 employees. And resumes and search approaches that worked perfectly well before may no longer do the trick.''

    Full story:

    Via Slashdot.
