proving a big hit Internet technology may be up to the minute, but some sites are often a bit out of date. But at the vacancies on the home page are less than 24 hours old. Some 6,500 job seekers are already visiting the site every week, where it takes less than 10 seconds to see the latest vacancies. After the first 24 hours, incoming positions are posted under the heading of yesterday's jobs, before joining the main job bank ­ and appearing in print in the normal way in the following Saturday's issue of The Grocer. This means that online applications can be sent almost a week before readers of the paper version even see the vacancy. The online jobs archive is also easier to search than the hard copy, making it easier to pinpoint the right jobs. User demand totalled 153,191 site hits during March 2000 and recruitment advertisers placing jobs on the site have received as many as 40 applications in a single day. Audience figures are set to double after June with substantial relaunch marketing and a commitment to increased promotion for the new site throughout the year aimed at targeting new audience sectors. New features on the site will allow users to e-mail jobs to a friend, track job applications, store CVs, and access a databank of employment information. The databank will contain information on many aspects of employment ­ from topics as varied as tax information or how to dress in interviews. These are intended to keep users coming back again and again. Vacancies can be posted within 24 hours of the order being placed. Job searchers have a range of links to follow, which enables them to research a company or sector as they respond to the vacancies. The positions posted have a two to three week life online. A mail link enables applicants to send their CVs, while other links can take them to corporate web sites, giving access to essential company data. The grocerjobs web site can also be searched in the normal way by region, job spec, salary range and other relevant variables. {{PEOPLE MOVES }}
