The New Web at Work
While businesspeople are sure to find many practical uses for the new generation of Web sites and services, two of the best newcomers are designed specifically to get you into a business. Indeed and Simply Hired each collect listings from a variety of job sites (including Careermole, Craigslist, Dice, and Monster). They allow you to filter out unwanted job categories and save the resulting search as an RSS feed or e-mail alert that keeps new postings coming to you daily. Simply Hired lets you add prospective jobs to a Google Map so you can compare commute times among your various employment prospects, for example. Indeed's Jobroll feature lets you turn a job search into an ever-updating box you can copy and paste into your blog or Web page as a service to your readers.
