North Chelmsford, Mass., April 20, 2000 -
Getting confused with the hundreds of buzzwords, tech terms and high-tech
acronyms popping up daily? For many, trying to post a job online --
especially for IT positions -- has become as difficult as translating
Cantonese. To help recruiters combat technology jargon overload, Net-Temps
today introduced an online technical spell checker to its Recruiters
Desktop. Now, when posting a new job or editing an existing listing,
recruiters have the option of enabling the spell checker as a means of
proofing their ad.
"Existing word processing applications don't have the depth of
technical terms needed for today's recruiters," said PJ Beaulac, director
of business development. "Now, recruiters can quickly and easily post jobs
without worrying about confusing terms or spelling errors."
Much like standard word processing programs, the Net-Temps spell
checker searches for errors and suggests alternate spellings. Recommended
corrections are automatically made in the spelling dialog box. Building on
the entire contents of Webster's dictionary, Net-Temps has also added
hundreds of terms commonly used in today's technical job titles and
descriptions, such as Java, Perl or DNA. This dictionary will be
continuously updated as new language is introduced and becomes commonly
Don Riddle of Professional Search of the Carolinas', and long-time
customer of Net-Temps, stated, "Thanks so much for adding the spell
checker. No matter how many times you proof your work, you are bound to
miss something. The spell checker is user-friendly and offers the
assurance of presenting a more professional, and error free job posting."
Net-Temps is ranked the number one online job posting board
specializing in contract professionals1 and is consistently ranked in the
top 10 Websites with job postings based on traffic by Media Metrix and
Neilson Net Ratings. Net-Temps job posting service provides an effective
means for staffing agencies, human resource professionals and small
business executives to take advantage of electronic recruiting. Hundreds
of thousands of job seekers post resumes and search for jobs at no cost.
