New dot-jobs Internet domain to debut in 2005

New dot-jobs Internet domain to debut in 2005

Online recruiting and hiring has a new home on the Internet... and that home is ".jobs." SHRM and two partners have been given the permission to create the new top-level Internet domain. Website addresses sporting the new urls should start showing up online sometime in late summer / early fall.

Said SHRM President and CEO Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR: “Recruiting skilled, dedicated talent is among the strategic contributions HR professionals make to the success of an organization.” The new Internet domain “has the potential to create a more streamlined recruiting process for HR professionals and make it easier for prospective employees to find vacant jobs.”

“Once established, .jobs will do three things to make the current recruiting process better,” said Tom Embrescia, chairman of .jobs, in a prepared statement. “It will make the recruitment process simpler for companies to recruit; it will make recruiting uniform for all companies; and that means that job seekers will find the jobs faster and companies will be able to more quickly fill open positions.”
