Excellent feedback and modifications from trial
locations has resulted in the following new features:
The MyJobScout page has received a “facelift” to
better direct the user to key features as well as
create a distinct and empowering image associated
with the brand.
The JobScout Social Network:
The JobScout social network will allow users to
connect with each other to share first-hand
experience, techniques and tips on anything from
creating a standout resume to interview tactics and
even job opportunities.
New Lesson Content:
As the Internet continues to grow and expand, so
will JobScout. New lessons are being developed to
introduce users to even more tools for job search
success. Upcoming lessons will focus on privacy and
security, how to be more media savvy, social
networking and how to find job opportunities online.
The “One-Stop” Job Shop:
: Beginning soon JobScout will be introducing a
new feature called the “One-Stop Job Shop." Here
users will be able to manage the entire application
process from one place on JobScout
As a means of making JobScout more tangible, visible
and available to librarians and their customers,
“Buzz Kits” will be assembled and delivered to
library branches equipped with essential
informational papers and brochures, stickers and
other fun items to hand out as well as posters and
postcards to place in common areas.
The Librarians’ Page:
Librarians are a vital part to the success of
JobScout. Our team wants to make all of the
resources you need available to you at the click of
a mouse. This new JobScout page is being designed
with you in mind. The Librarian's Page is a
resource to make your involvement in JobScout a
simple and streamlined process. We want to put at
your disposal as many educational tools and
resources as possible. For instance, digital copies
of all “Buzz Kit” materials will be made available
for easy download. Lesson instructions will also be
posted for print outs and lesson reviews.
Make sure to find us online on
Twitter to share
information and updates about JobScout.
We are looking
for new partners and more users, so pass on the word!
