To quote Shakespeare’s Richard III, ”Now is the winter of our discontent”, or at least, we’re hoping that it doesn’t get much “colder”! While pundits do say ”it” will still get worse before it gets better, the current economic climate will not last forever. So, ever the optimist, the longer we’re in it, the closer we are to the end!
However, in this period of job (in)security, we’d like to announce that Xuropa has just opened two ”Job Centers” within the Online Electronic Design Community.
- Career Center: Seeking Career Positions - where to post a description of the ideal job you’re looking for
- Career Center: Seeking Professionals - where to post a description of the professional you’re looking to hire
It’s perfectly FREE for anyone to list positions that are open and for job seekers to post their ideal career move. Just go to one of the Job Center Online Booths and make your entry in the Forum or browse the positions and professionals as the forums become populated.
Once you’ve made a post to the Forum you’ll be automatically updated with any responses. If you want to contact the poster, go to the posters Professional Profile and send them a message. Email addresses are kept strictly confidential, but we facilitate you making the connection.
Note however that we do not allow any anonymous postings.
Of course, this ties in closely to your Professional Profile on Xuropa. Ensure this is current either manually or by importing your LinkedIn profile. Also, make sure your list of specializations and skills is up to date. LinkedIn doesn’t cover these aspects of an electronic design professionals background, so you’ll need to do this manually.
Good luck, what ever you’re looking for!
