IT professionals looking for work have a new place to hunt for jobs.
Spiceworks Inc. has spiced up its collaboration offerings for IT professionals by including a job board. It’s an extension of the company’s Web site where information technology workers can post details of projects they’re working on, ask questions and recommend products.
At the annual SpiceWorld user conference on Tuesday the company also said it is adding a new profiles area that links to project pages.
“IT professionals have an amazing ability to architect and use technology solutions to solve really complex business problems, so we wanted to give them a way to share those experiences with peers, partners and future employers,” Tabrez Syed, vice president of products at Spiceworks, said in a statement. “Collectively, the new profiles and job board represent major steps forward in how IT professionals share information about themselves, their work and the technologies they rely on to do their jobs.”
Jobs can be filtered by title, skills, hiring company or location. Subscribers can also post openings available at their organization.
The new profiles section lets IT staff highlight their skills and the technologies they use to do their jobs. Profiles include community contributions, the vendors they follow, content they find valuable, and traditional resume components such as past work experience and certifications.
IT projects can now be added to any profile and can include photos, videos, geographic information, budgets and more than 40,000 individual IT products and services from Spiceworks’ catalog of solutions. Additionally, IT service providers who assisted with projects can also be included. Complete with a timeline of projects, Spiceworks’ profiles redefine the online IT resume by providing a rich, visually appealing account of the technologies and people involved in the IT experience
