Pre Beta Release

So we are on our way. The blogs Buzz intheHUB and JobHacks have now been integrated into the site. Invitations have been sent to a small pre release group. If all goes well we will officially release in the first week of November. The phase I functionality is in place and works nicely. There are some usability issues to address, but we can now begin to build the user base. As we do this, we are busy working on Phase II which will be a module for hiring companies to develop communications with their targeted candidate pool. In the mean time users can discover companies and submit their resumes. hope you like what we have so far. Let us know what you would like to see and improve.

“This Job Sucks” Online Job Site Advertising


Scene- ……..Panning view of chaotic office filled with chimps as viewed by a fellow worker through a glass conference room window. Papers flying, bubble wrap snapping, a lot of screaming and throwing of office supplies….
Voice over- ……”Do you work with a bunch of monkeys?”

Cut to- …….Focus shifts from the office scene to the fellow workers reflection in the conference rooms glass. Slowly the face of the viewer emerges from the blur, big hairy ears, buck teeth,…. it is the face of a donkey.

This is our take on the standard “I hate my job” ads run by the big job boards. You have to be an “ass” to work with a bunch of monkeys. Our point is, if you manage your career successfully, you will be at a good job and looking for a better one. Sure, sometimes mistakes are made or the job isn’t what was presented in the interviews, but the general point is , if you know what to look for and focus on the right type of opportunities, you won’t be working with a bunch of monkeys. They don’t make good references in any case.
