From Fluff to Functional:Dotcom Titles Evolve

I am completely frustrated with the whole mass confusion that exists as part of the IT/Web Job Search...

I want to open a discussion between recruiters, job seekers and big resume sites, to help clear this confusion up...

    OK craig, we're listening. You start...

  2. Well I am thinking of aiming towards a solution...that would help all 3 sides of the job search...

    My idea is basically a social-job-search/job-hunt...

    Where employer's can submit job ads for free, and registered members can help them find matches by voting on resumes, and adding them to the list of matches..

    Also members can submit resumes for free as well.

    And members review both job leads and resumes, offering tips, re-editing, to help the employer find each other...

    In addition, instead of focusing on job title's we'd focus on job skills, in each experience, then match those job skills against the actual needs of the job ad.

    People would review job ads for accuracy and clarity..And help to identify differences between actual needs and hopes/dream needs.

    This is just the starting point of the site idea...It would be like but it's focus is to help use the power of people to make the job process smoother and more accurate...

    That's the basic idea...

    My guess is that if you want to be taken seriously on this you will need to at least build a prototype of the application you envisage and put it on a server somewhere so interested parties can check it out. Then you will have a proper basis for discussion. If you've been a developer for many years, then you will no doubt already have created much of the code, or at least the patterns, that such an app would require. It should be quite easy for someone of your experience.

    Oh and by the way, I'm puzzled by the disconnect between the title of your post and content of the post itself.
