North Chelmsford, Mass., February 08, 2000 -
Net-Temps, Inc., the contract employment portal on the Internet serving the
staffing industry and job seekers, announced the creation of
occupation-specific career channels, transforming the job seeking process.
Unlike the massive job board format typically found on the Internet that
offers jobs in all occupations, Net-Temps provides ten occupation-focused
channels permitting candidates to identify the most appropriate job
listings for their field, thus simplifying the job search process.
Net-Temps career channels include Administrative & Clerical, Engineering,
Accounting & Finance, Healthcare, Information Technology, Internet,
Management, Recruiting & HR, Sales & Marketing and Other & Misc.
Each channel includes up-to-date industry specific news, feature
articles and other tools. WetFeet provides industry specific news, and
features and general topic news is supplied by NewsEdge. Through
partnerships with these organizations, Net-Temps further enhances its value
to its customers. Access to targeted news benefits job seekers by cutting
through the Internet clutter providing career-relevant information quickly
Career-oriented sectors are the most effective in drawing qualified
candidates. For recruiters this means less time is required to source the
best candidates by limiting the number of unqualified resumes received.
Net-Temps, Inc. President, Gregg Booth explained, "We believe that this
channel-based approach will permanently transform the Internet recruitment
